The Kentmere Difference

Feb 7, 2023

Growing older is a gift, and one we shouldn’t take for granted. With age comes specific needs that require specialized care and compassion. When searching for rehabilitation or senior care, you want to ensure your loved ones are well taken care of and in an environment tailored just for them. You want a community that is truly special.

Kentmere Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing boasts a unique story and an array of benefits that will bring peace of mind to you and your family. Here’s what makes us stand out from our peers:

More Than A Century At Your Service

While all rehabilitation and senior care communities are focused on individual care, Kentmere has made it our priority and specialty since we were established in 1901 – more than a century ago – long before the concept of senior residential care even existed; with a commitment to remaining a nonprofit organization, and we’ve kept that promise ever since.

Dementia-related Specialized Care

From our administrators to our housekeeping staff, our team is trained in Montessori for Dementia and Aging, which supports improving the quality of life for seniors with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia by promoting dignity, meaningful engagement and independence throughout life. And because these diseases affect not only our residents but their entire family, we offer various support services to ease the transition to long-term care.

Hospitable and Homelike Amenities

Whether it’s for our long-term care residents or sub-acute care and rehabilitation clients, we provide the kind of comfort and support you’d hope to receive from your own family. Our atmosphere is warm and welcoming, providing the homelike amenities residents need and want – stellar dining, hospitable common spaces, a well-appointed gym, an on-site barber shop and beauty parlor, and a long list of social activities.

24-Hour Nursing Coverage

Our 24-hour skilled nursing coverage meets the unique needs of each individual as we strive to offer the highest quality of care in Delaware, and with a nursing-to-patient ratio that regularly exceeds state requirements, we work to ensure that residents receive the personalized care they deserve.

Unique Location

Among the multitude of senior care communities in New Castle County, our location is unique. Set in 40 Acres, one of Wilmington’s most beautiful neighborhoods, Kentmere provides the comfort and convenience of a close-knit residential community with safe, convenient off-street access in surroundings of surpassing beauty, not far from historic Brandywine Park.

That’s the Kentmere difference: our dedication to caring, comfort and community.
