For many years, generous people have given to Friends Home in Kennett. These caring donors have helped the Home grow from a boarding home into a nurturing personal care home and skilled nursing home for older men and women.
Today, this tradition continues as new donors join with longtime supporters. Your generosity gives Friends Home in Kennett’s residents:
- a safe, homelike place to live
- a place where they can live well
- a place where they can make new friends, and get reacquainted with longtime friends
Residents tell us how comfortable they are here – how they know they can just be themselves. It makes them feel that they are truly at home.
Will my donation really make a difference?
Yes, it will! It will make a difference to residents like “Barbara.”
After a surgery, Barbara and her daughter, Jane, sat down and had a serious talk. They both knew that Barbara couldn’t continue living alone. She was still independent and wanted to stay active, but wondering what might happen if she had a fall or a sudden illness at home made her want to live in a supportive retirement community. “I looked at the bigger places, but I wanted to live in a place where I could get to know my neighbors.”
“When we came to Friends Home in Kennett for a tour, it was clear that this was the right place for us. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. They all seemed genuinely interested in getting to know Mom.” Barbara has been a resident for a few years now, and she is still pleased with the decision. “I tell everyone I know how wonderful it is here and that they should move in, too!”
Please consider a gift to Friends Home in Kennett. Your donation will ensure that residents like Barbara continue to have a safe home, quality care, nutritious meals and engaging activities.
