The Mary J. Drexel Home is now
The Hearth at Drexel

Welcome to The Hearth at Drexel


Philanthropist John D. Lankenau founded the Mary J. Drexel Home in 1888 in memory of his wife. The community, now The Hearth at Drexel, is built around a landmark historic mansion in Bala Cynwyd. Liberty Lutheran lovingly restored and renovated the mansion, making it the crowning jewel of our exceptional community.

The Hearth at Drexel is distinctly different type of Assisted Living and Memory Care community, defined by sophisticated luxury and highly personalized care, and designed for the most discerning individuals. We are progressive in our approach-offering three levels of assistance within a unique "household" style of living. Residents maintain their privacy and lifestyle preferences within a supportive, service-and-amenity rich community.

The Hearth at Drexel is a proud community of Liberty Lutheran, a top choice for senior living throughout Pennsylvania for more than a century.
