  • Animated Arrow for QuestionsWhat if my health needs change?

    The Hearth is designed as an “aging in place” community.

Furthermore, this support is provided at a predictable monthly rate that doesn’t increase even if needs do.

  • Animated Arrow for QuestionsWhat is “resident-directed” living?

    At The Hearth, we know that our residents have lived extraordinary lives and that shouldn’t change because they need support. Our residents continue to live by their own lifelong routines with our support.  Life on the household is driven by resident choice not by staff schedules. We build relationships with our residents learning their preference and allowing them to direct us in their care.

    At The Hearth at Drexel we recognize that your pets are family. Please contact us to discuss moving in to our pet-friendly community.
