A wonderful place

As a professional in the senior living industry, I often recommend this community to my clients and their families. The community is warm, welcoming, and dedicated to resident wellness. They prioritize family, engagement, and wellbeing of their residents and staff. I’ve been very impressed with the leadership team, as well as the associates I’ve met there during my visits.

About the community Friends Home in Kennett

Since 1898 the Friends Home has provided older adults quality care and housing at a moderate price.



Founded by members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), the Home has a strong tradition of encouraging independence and respect for the individuality and dignity of each person.



Assisted Living



Assisted living offers older adults a comfortable, homey residence in an atmosphere that encourages independence and preserves individual dignity. Residents come to Assisted Living at Friend Home for a variety of reasons — they no longer want to maintain their own homes, they may need assistance with daily activities (meals, dressing, bathing, medications, etc.), or they may seek to live in an active, friendly community with their peers.


Due to its size and intimate atmosphere, Linden Hall is unlike many other nursing homes. Each resident is an individual who is known, cared about, and appreciated. Life in Linden Hall is truly a life among friends.

Do not put your parent here!!

Don’t believe the lies that [name removed] (the so called “Director”) will feed you or [name removed] either. This organization is not full of love and friends and compassion. It used to be but since the new director has come in it seems she is more interested in giving her personal friends jobs instead of worrying about the welfare of the residents. Many residents who were living there, now no longer do. This also goes for most of the staff that was originally there. The staff that knew my mom and loved her are gone. When [name removed] is making decisions, it is to flatter her own ego and not in the best interest of the residents. Be careful when putting your parent here! It is not what it is made out to be. My mother used to reside here and loved it but she no longer felt comfortable being there. She said the feel and atmosphere changed and it never felt like home again.. Taking her out of there was the best decision I have ever made!

Cannot take wheelchairs. While mom is does not use one yet, I think that might be a possibility in the future and I would hate to have to move her.

Mom seems to like it

Mom seems to enjoy living here very well. She had adjusted quite well and is doing fine. Her living space suits her quite well. She is making some friends and is doing the activities they offer. She has not complained about the food so she must like it. The inside is maintained very they keep it very clean. The outside has sitting areas so in the nice weather residents and family can visit

Found The Best Fit In the Best Spot

This community worked out from the start. They are the most affordable for us and they moved us in right away. It has been good for my mom since she moved in. The community is nice and homey. I like that it is simple and not fancy. Everybody you meet is nice and my mom likes. The plus is they are in the neighborhood she is familiar with and her church is nearby too. It was a good move.

Mothers respite stay.

Very good staff, accommodations, food and overall care. I would take my mother here again (she was very happy during her stay), I think that says it all.

My Friend Is Doing Well Here

My friend's experience with this community has been a good one. He stays in the independent portion. It is a clean community, they do a good job with the cleaning. Everybody has been very kind and friendly. There are many activities offered. The food is decent and the dining area is very nice. Everything is working out very well for my friend here at this community.
