Friends Home is situated on a quiet
street in historic Newtown Borough. The original Victorian
building, known as Paxson Hall, is a licensed Personal Care
Home. It includes a cheerful dining room, a living room
with period furnishings, library, enclosed sun porch and
administrative offices. It is home to 21 residents occupying
private units on three floors, accessible by stairs or elevator.
Three delicious meals are served every day.
Scattered about the grounds are
17 one and two bedroom apartments with a variety of floor
plans. Apartment residents live independently but come to
Paxson Hall for their mid-day meal and have the option of
also coming for breakfast and supper.
Rooms and apartments are cleaned
bi-weekly. Laundry facilities are available. All units are
fitted with emergency alert systems and individually controlled
thermostats. Staff are on duty 24 hours a day.
Friends Home is truly a pleasant,
comfortable place to live. Small by design and remarkably
affordable, it provides a unique and supportive community
that is truly home to a caring family of residents and staff.
