“The Hearth at Drexel has truly become like a family to my mom. She loves the meals and  looks forward to the week ahead with all the fun activities they plan. The staff is excellent and loving toward her. She has her favorites! I can enjoy my life knowing that mom is well taken care of.”

We have been so impressed with how loving and caring the team members at the Hearth have been, from the housekeepers and maintenance, to nurses, to administration. Add to that, dedicated staff, a beautiful community, and we believe that our parents are in the best place possible for them at this stage of their lives.
