Assisted Living

Our belief is that you should be allowed to age where you would like and to be as confident, comfortable, and graceful as possible. We believe this is not only the appropriate physical and spiritual approach, but one which also provides for a better and more personalized quality of life.49848223_m

That is why St. Ann’s offers Assisted Living as a continuum of care built on the philosophy known as “Aging in Place,” with a wide range of services available to all Assisted Living residents. Equally important is the Catholic foundation of the Carmelite Sisters who founded, and still operate, St. Ann’s and their belief that an active and rewarding faith journey is vital to aging well.

Moving into Assisted Living is a major change in everyone’s life, and our staff is here to make the transition as smooth and safe as possible, and to help create a loving home. St. Ann’s has a total of 75 Assisted Living beds. The rooms are located in Mary’s Haven, with its three levels of care, and 10 beds are in Joseph’s Haven, a secured Alzheimer’s unit.
