Pickering Manor, Newtown’s premier center for senior living, was opened in 1963 thanks to the generosity of Mr Henry Russell Pickering. He bequeathed his home and a sum of money for the creation of a retirement center to serve the older citizens of Newtown and vicinity. This unique non-profit retirement community is located in historic Newtown and is owned and operated by the Community Welfare Council of Newtown. Even after extensive growth, Pickering Manor continues to be funded solely by revenues from its residents and from generous donations from individuals, local businesses and community organizations. Located in the heart of the historic Newtown PA, Pickering Manor offers its community opportunities to enjoy vibrant and comfortable lifestyles. Our Independent Living Cottages, Apartments and our Personal Care and Rehabilitation, as well as our wide range of community activities and services, are designed to enable our residents to live life to the fullest. Pickering Manor offers one and two bedroom apartments that offer maximum independent living with all the support you need. Because the apartment is yours, it is private as it can be. Apartment living means your grandchildren can come for an overnight visit. Apartments mean you can come and go as you please without disturbing anyone. Every apartment comes with a wireless emergency response system and a kitchen. The apartments are set in beautifully landscaped grounds. If you are looking for a cozy and comfortable cottage that suits your new lifestyle you have come to the right place. For the maximum amount of privacy and while still keeping the support services you need, Pickering Manor cottages come in one and two bedroom. You still get all the support you need, including the emergency response system. We take care of all the maintenance chores as well, including trash. Because you have a stand alone home, you can have grandchildren spend the night, invite friends over and even take trips, knowing your home and your property will stay secure.
