Friends Village in Newtown, PA

Friends Village in Newtown, PA offering Independent Living.

I had the opportunity to tour Friends Village in Newtown Pa.  Friends is an independent living and personal care community, built on Quaker values, with a focus on purpose, community, wellness, and kindness.  Friends Village dates back to 1895 when Quaker philanthropist Anna T. Jeanes, donates $200,000 to support the establishment of “Boarding Homes for the Aged and Infirm Friends and those in sympathy with us.”

Two Locations offering Two Living Styles: Your aging experience is unique. Friends Village offers two living styles:  cottages designed for active, independent living, and the personal care apartments at Paxson Hall where you can access assistance as your needs change.

Styer Campus: With the historic Styer home at its core, the Styer Campus offers a variety of independent living apartment layouts to suit your preference. It’s an active, intimate neighborhood in a park-like setting with a beautiful meadow, gardens, and walkways.

Paxson Campus: Established in 1897, Paxson Campus is located in historic Newtown Borough. It is home to both free-standing independent living cottages and beautiful Paxson Hall, where residents may receive personal care services. The Paxson Campus offers the convenience and excitement of downtown life, with walkable shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions.
