From 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.

What Makes Us Special

Friends Home is a warm, comfortable, homey community situated in the heart of Kennett Square.

Should care be needed in the future, they do not have to move – we bring the care to them!
