WHY SAINT FRANCIS IS UNIQUE
Providing Trusted Service for Over 120 Years
Saint Francis was established in 1895 by the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother to serve as a health and wellness spa known as Saint Francis Health Resort. The resort’s reputation for hospitality, good food and peaceful park-like setting attracted residents throughout the New York metropolitan area and beyond for recuperation and healing. The Sisters still operate and manage the property now known as Saint Francis Residential Community and remain committed to providing a supporting nurturing environment for all residents.
A Place Where You Can Thrive
We know you cherish your independence and our mission is to provide the support and services you need to not just maintain your independent lifestyle but thrive! At Saint Francis, you can leave behind all the stress, worry and work that come with home ownership and start doing all the things you’ve always dreamed about doing when you retire.
When you live at Saint Francis, you are more than a resident, you are a valued member of our family. We are a tight-knit community that supports each other—something you won’t find at other impersonal corporate-managed retirement centers. You’ll get the chance to know all of your neighbors and make new friends. Grandchildren visit their grandparents on a regular basis, so you’ll also get to know your neighbors’ family members as well.
Dedicated Trustworthy Staff
The staff at most other retirement centers is often ever changing. Their high turnover rates mean you never know who will be providing your services month to month—and sometimes even week to week. Saint Francis is different. We are proud of our dedicated reliable staff—80% have been with us for 10 years or more, 50% have been with us for 15 years or more and 25% have been with us for over 20 years! You’ll see the same smiling faces year after year. They know you and your family and you know them. That means peace of mind for both you and your family.
Unlike other retirement communities, Saint Francis is a non-profit property, which means we are focused on serving the needs of our residents and not the bottom line. Our only goal is to improve the quality of life for our residents. This unique business approach enables us to offer more fair and reasonable fees than you will find elsewhere.
