Bensalem Veterans Residences promises affordable housing for seniors


Last week, Pennrose, Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, Bucks County, the Bucks County Housing Authority and Bensalem Township celebrated the opening of Bensalem Veterans Residences, a 40-unit affordable residential community for seniors and veterans ages 62 and older. Local service providers, including the Bucks County Department of Veteran Affairs, Bucks County Vet Center and Salute 2 Service, will provide on-site supportive services to residents.
Located at 3055 Mechanicsville Road, the 39,673 square-foot apartment community offers 40 one bedroom units in a three-story building. All units feature modern kitchens and central heating and air. In addition, residents have access to robust on-site resident amenities, including a resident lounge with exterior patio, laundry facilities on each floor, a fitness room, and a community service office with conference space where local veteran organizations can meet.
“Bensalem Veterans Residences is a fine example of a public and private partnership supporting veterans,” said Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo. “Bensalem Council and I are extremely proud to have been a part of another Bensalem first, giving back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much serving our country.”
