Liberty Lutheran is proud to announce the grand re-opening of The Hearth at Drexel. A ribbon cutting ceremony and VIP Open House on May 14 kicked off the momentous occasion with community supporters, local leaders, healthcare professionals, Liberty board members and staff.
The former Mary J. Drexel Home joined the Liberty Lutheran Family of Services in 2008. Since then it has been undergoing a top-to-bottom renovation to accommodate a completely new Assisted Living Community. The original home – a 126-year-old mansion built by John D. Lankenau in memory of his wife Mary Johanna Drexel – forms the anchor of The Hearth’s four new household communities.
The Hearth has been designed around the idea of the “household model,” to bring people together. The Hearth is focused on delivering resident-centered care that puts the desires and personal preferences of residents first – regimented schedules and hospital-like settings are a thing of the past. Each household, with its own distinct color theme, has a large open common area that is the hub of activity and dominated by a signature stone hearth. Window boxes overflowing with seasonal flowers bedeck the balconies, and the large windows bring in the natural light and open on to views of the terraces, gardens and park-like grounds.
With no long hallways or closed off spaces, The Hearth is distinguished by its bright, open and cheery living spaces, both inside and out, where residents can come together for conversation, meals, entertainment and recreation, all at their leisure just like at home.
The Hearth at Drexel welcomes its first resident in June. A community Open House event is scheduled for the end of June.
