About Lewis Memorial Home

Lewis Memorial Home is a warm, caring community which encourages the personal independence of individuals and offers the opportunity to pursue a productive and satisfying life.


This commanding home is historically significant as one of the oldest remaining in Simpson County, Kentucky. Built in 1857 by the Lewis family, the residence is a two story brick structure with dwelling rooms, kitchen, dining room, enclosed porch and upstairs / downstairs sitting rooms.  The Lewis family deeded the land with over 300 acres in the mid 1900's to the Methodist Church. The Church established an orphans' and widows' home until 1965. At that point, it became a retirement home.


Today, the home retains its original charm with modern amenities for its residents' ease. It is licensed for twenty-three residents. Six apartments are available in a separate building for couples or single living. All have professional maintenance and landscaping. The setting is peaceful. The front door looks out to a golf course. The side and back doors face full-growth trees and rolling fields which grace the manor.


Top quality, friendly personalized caregivers are our specialty. Our Administrator and staff have 65+ years of combined on-site experience. We make you our priority by providing a highView from Lewis Memorials front yard towards the golf course staff to resident ratio which includes 24 hour supervision in a home-like environment. Communication is key in our family-oriented approach to care, which involves the family in decisions.

Membership Affiliations
