About The Hickman

After more than 120 years, we continue to honor our tradition and build for the future.


The Hickman, founded in 1891, is a non-profit, personal care community serving people of all races and faiths.

Located on an historic campus in the Borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania known as Quaker Hill, The Hickman Personal Care Community includes two residences: The Hickman Building and the Anna T. Jeanes Building. Also on the block and closely aligned to The Hickman community is the West Chester Friends Meeting House and the West Chester Friends School that includes classes from pre-school through fifth grade.

The Hickman Building

Built in the colonial revival architectural style that was popular during the day, The Hickman Building combines old world charm and beauty with all the modern conveniences of 21st century living.

There are 40 resident apartments on three floors, with the various communal spaces appointed with period antiques and interior design finishes. Relax out on the sun-dappled patio with friends or family, or find a comfortable chair in the stately living room near the hearth. Large windows bring natural light into the dining room and foyer, and the second floor porch offers a lovely view of the patio and green.

The Anna T. Jeanes Building

The completion of the Anna T. Jeanes Building in 2018 added 74 suites to The Hickman community. This new facility has been carefully designed to blend aesthetically into the historic Quaker Hill neighborhood while providing the latest in modern personal care services.

To address the growing need for memory care among senior citizens, the first floor houses a secure memory care neighborhood with 22 private and shared studio suites and access to a secure outdoor garden. The second and third floors of the building have 52 personal care one-bedroom and studio suites.

The neighborhood design of the Anna T. Jeanes Building means everything you need is available on each floor – communal dining, fun activities, a peaceful living room, or comfortable chairs on a sunny outdoor porch. A full array of community life is just outside your door, and at the same time, you have full independence to explore everything else that is happening throughout The Hickman.
