Resources for Seniors

In addition to our programs and services for older adults, these Abington Health resources may be helpful for seniors, their families and caregivers:

Caregivers Resource Room

In this special room, patients, family members and the community can explore senior-related information to find answers and guidance.

Material offered covers a wide range of subjects. Visitors will find articles, details on community resources and benefit program information, as well as counseling and computer access.

Open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Suite 403 of the Price Medical Office Building, Abington Memorial Hospital. To learn more, call 215-481-2837.

Healthcare Advance Directive

By filling out this document, you give directions about your future health care and who should make medical decisions for you if a situation arises where you may be unable to speak for yourself.

After completing an Advance Directive (also called a “living will”):

  • Keep the original signed and dated document where you keep personal documents
  • Tell a family member or friend where you have stored it
  • Give a copy to your physician, decision-maker and substitute decision-maker
  • Review this document occasionally, adding the date and your initials to show that your wishes are current
A pocket-sized advance directive is available free by calling The Muller Institute for Senior Health at 215-481-2571.
