About the community

Friends Home and Village, a two-campus independent living community, has been a mainstay of Newtown, Pennsylvania, for over 120 years. Our non-profit community was founded in Quaker values, offering an affordable lifestyle where residents have access to excellent services and feel respected, socially included, and secure. Distinct colonial architecture and historic charm meets modern interiors throughout our cottages and apartments. We’re a great choice for self-reliant seniors ages 62 and above, and at our Paxson Hall location, personal services are also offered. To discover more about our values-driven community, contact an A Place for Mom advisor today!

A concerned daughter - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
Rent increase

While the rates start out inexpensively as a lure, there is an increase imposed at the start of each new year. Within 15 months my Mother’s rent went up $600/year. Whether it’s worth it or not is personal but for those on a fixed income, it can be quite a hardship and the concerns were met with indifference.

We really liked this community. The outside surroundings are beautiful. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It also has a library which is very important to my mom. We are leaning towards picking this community for mom.
