A group of Phoebe Allentown staff celebrate completion of a recent Dementia Friend training by the United Way.

Since our earliest days as a Deaconess training school, Phoebe has been a teaching and learning institution. Today, staff training goes well beyond regulatory requirements and includes advanced training, tuition reimbursement, and scholarships for employees to further their education.

Our effort to educate others through the Phoebe Institute on Aging’s programs serves to improve the quality of care available at Phoebe and in the surrounding community.

Each year, we offer field experiences and internships to dozens of students attending area colleges and universities. In addition, Phoebe offers programs for older adults, family caregivers, and other professionals serving the aging population in our broader community.
