The Broadmead Tradition
The Stony Run Friends Meeting founded Broadmead as a way to serve the needs of older persons. It opened in 1979 as a private, not-for-profit, Life Plan Community. Broadmead continues to operate under the guidance and ownership of a Quaker-guided, not-for-profit corporation.
The Quaker values – which speak to capacity for love, concern for one another, personal integrity, an appreciation for the simple things in life, and the belief that “There is that of God in everyone” – are still the cornerstone of this multi-denominational community. The name Broadmead comes from an historic Quaker site in England.
The property on which Broadmead stands was originally called Holly Hill. The Holly Hill farmhouse, believed to have been built in the mid to late 1700s, still stands. It’s now a historic landmark known as Holly House.
Since opening more than 40 years ago, Broadmead’s missions continues to be to foster independence, growth, and the opportunities in elderhood by supporting a dynamic community, providing exceptional health services, developing collaborative relationships and upholding Quaker values.
The continued vision at Broadmead is to be a leader in the development of high quality, innovative solutions that enrich the lives of older people; promote relationships; and create opportunities as it extends its mission of service in the Quaker tradition.
