Madeline Care Center

Nestled in the close-knit community of Wilmington Delaware and set on a 10-acre campus, Madeline Care Center is home to seniors age 55 and over. Our highly trained and caring staff are devoted to creating a safe, engaging and healthy environment for our residents. From active independent living, rest residential to skilled nursing care, we provide our residents with personalized service, attention, and assistance to thrive. Located south of Philadelphia and near the University of Delaware, MCC is a delightful blend of urban and rural life, far enough away from the larger cities to be a very affordable choice. Loaded with a rich history and lovely Victorian architecture and decor, Madeline Care Center is a formerly known as the Highfield Masonic Home of Delaware.

We feature newly renovated and fully modern 1 and 2 bedroom cottages built in a similar architectural style to the main historical building​. Located on a private cul-de-sac our cottages have a full kitchen with dishwasher, disposal, granite counters and built in breakfast bar and stainless appliances. Bathrooms are customized with grab bars, walk in showers and beautiful vanities. Glass sliding door leads to a private patio to entertain family and friends or just relax. For residents that require more care we have we have a 60-bed rest residential care center with spacious private rooms, private baths and country kitchens. We also have a 19-bed skilled nursing facility for short term rehabilitation stays and post-surgery recovery.

We offer delicious, home-cooked nutritionally balanced meals with ample snacks available throughout the day. Alternative dining selections are always available

This community is incorporating green technology to reduce our carbon footprint. Renovation plans are underway to create a wellness and exercise center, life enrichment center and movie theater.
