What Distinguishes The Hickman From Other Senior Living Communities?

This deep-rooted commitment to care, combined with our active engagement within the greater community, ensures vibrant interactions and enriches the lives of our residents.

Do I Need to be a Quaker to Live at The Hickman?

No, while The Hickman was founded by Quakers many years ago, our residents come from varied backgrounds and religious affiliations. We continue to operate the community under Quaker principles and are committed to providing a welcoming and caring atmosphere for all.

When is The Right Time to Consider a Move to a
Personal Care Community?

The best time to think about a personal care community is while you are still active and wish to continue an independent, healthy life. The relief of the burdens of home ownership and chores of everyday life opens up worlds of possibilities for enjoying community activities and experiencing new outlets for growth.
