    Friends Home in Kennett


    147 West State Street Kennett Square, PA 19348

    Phone: 610.444.2577

    Friends Home is a non-profit senior living community that offers a variety of living options to help residents remain independent and active. For more than 100 years, Friends Home in Kennett has been a special part of historic Kennett Square. It’s a place where life is comfortable, relationships are rewarding, and friends truly become family.


    Their tradition of hospitality and caring began in 1898, when a group from the Religious Society of  Friends (“Quakers”) came together to serve the area’s older adults.


    Today, Friends Home offers a range of options for seniors including independent living, supportive independent living, personal care and skilled nursing. Friends Home strives not just to be located “in” Kennett Square, but truly “of” Kennett Square. Residents actively participate in various intergenerational programs in the community and enjoy giving back through service projects.


    At Friends Home, they work to adapt their environment to the individual interests and needs of the residents. Dining selections, enrichment activities, hobby-specific clubs, and personalized apartments give each resident the opportunity to express their individuality.
