About Friends Home in Kennett

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.

Our 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 in Kennett
Posted by a fellow reviewer October 16, 2014

I am a friend or relative of a resident

It was very nice, and my mother enjoyed being there. But just because it was a very old building, the feeling was she would probably be in a wheelchair and they were really not set up for wheelchair accessibility. It was farther from us, so we felt that it would be better if she would be closer. When she went there, she was a person seeking independent living, and they had a nursing station downstairs, but the people there were expected to come and go pretty much on their own and in that way it was fine until she fell. It was a very friendly environment; it was very much like a small town, and the people were like small-town people. The staff was very friendly, but we didn’t have much interaction with them because mother was living independently. We were very satisfied with it.

My grandmother has been at this facility for over 3 years and we have never had any problems. The staff is excellent. They are always kind and friendly, and very understanding when we bring my grandma home late! They also call to inform us if my grandmother is sick or behaving strangely, like not eating. They always keep us in the loop. The facility is small, but it has a comforting, community feel to it. Each room is a single with closet room and a bathroom. The facility also allows residents to bring in their own furniture like chairs and dressers if they want to. The facility also has a spacious wrap-around deck with lots of chairs. The lawn and garden beds are well kept, and it is a beautiful place to sit in the spring and summer. They also have lots of activities throughout the week to keep residents entertained, like holiday parties, craft days, and musical groups that come to perform. Overall Friends Home is a fantastic facility.
