About The Hickman…
The Hickman, a personal care home residence for older adults, has been 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. A non-profit community, our spirit of caring and respect is accorded to each individual regardless of race, faith, or ethnic identity. Our small, family-like atmosphere and close ties to the surrounding community make The Hickman a wonderful place to call home.
