Healthcare that Encourages a Spirit of Vitality

As we age, all of us seek the highest quality healthcare and quality of life for ourselves and our loved ones. A Quaker community established in 1893, Barclay Friends is a Kendal Affiliate that offers nursing and post-acute rehabilitation in a residential senior community in West Chester, Pennsylvania. To help our residents realize their full potentials, we focus on providing an environment that fosters independence. Above all, we seek to find and encourage each person’s spirit of vitality.

Respect and dignity for older adults are the cornerstones of life at Barclay Friends. We focus on compassionate care for mind, body, and spirit. As people age, we maintain that they should have as few limits and as much choice as possible in a comfortable environment. Continuous learning, joy, and fulfillment are the goals of our extensive activities and award-winning arts and horticultural therapy programs. Moreover, the Barclay Friends model promotes autonomy for each resident within the larger community.
