The Mary J. Drexel Home is now
The Hearth at Drexel

Welcome home to a new approach in assisted living

The Hearth at Drexel is the new name of the historic Mary J. Drexel Home, part of the Liberty Lutheran family of services since 2008. We’ve undergone a top-to-bottom renovation of the mansion that anchors our community. We’ve reinvented traditional senior living with welcoming gathering places where you can share new ideas, a favorite story and home-cooked meals.

The philosophy of senior living care is changing to a “household” model: a homelike, family atmosphere that helps residents thrive. The shared warmth of a community keeps residents independent so they never feel lonely, helpless or bored. It’s easy to socialize with friends at the kitchen table while knitting a sweater, rolling out dough for a piecrust or playing a hand of bridge.

Each of our four households has a shared kitchen and its own central hearth, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room. At home at The Hearth, you can relax with a cup of tea and a favorite book, explore your creative side or watch a movie with your housemates—whatever makes you feel at home.

Our goal is to create a home so warm and welcoming, you’ll never want to leave—and so advanced, you won’t have to.
