Welcome to The Hickman!

The Hickman, a senior living community for older adults, has been consistently providing excellent care to the residents of Chester County and the surrounding area for over a century.

Founded by two Quaker women in 1891, The Hickman is conveniently located in the heart of historic West Chester, within walking distance of banks, the post office, various art galleries, restaurants and shops.

Our close proximity to institutions such as West Chester University, the Chester County Historical Society, the Chester County Hospital, and the Chester County Library provides ample opportunity for continued community service as well as cultural and educational stimulation.

Life at The Hickman is a unique blend of opportunity for continued vitality coupled with services and support. Residents and families enjoy community rooms conveniently located throughout both buildings. Porches and patios overlook our beautifully landscaped grounds.
