Mission: The little sisters of the poor are an international congregation of roman catholic women religious founded in 1839 by saint jeanne jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, we serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world. Continuing the work of saint jeanne jugan, our mission is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until god calls them to himself. Our vision is to contribute to the culture of life by nurturing communities where each person is valued, the solidarity of the human family and the wisdom of age are celebrated, and the compassionate love of christ is shared with all. Our values of reverence: for the sacredness of human life and for the uniqueness of each person, especially those who are poorest and /or are weakest. This is reflected in care that is holistic and person-centered, of family spirit: a spirit of joyful hospitality embra

Programs: A skilled nursing facility with 40 beds and a nursing facility with 33 beds for the elderly poor who are 65 years and over with little or no income. We are dependent on donations to continue the mission of the little sisters of the poor, as the rates given to us by the state medical assistance program and the medicare rates given to us do not cover the expenses necessary to give the best care possible to all of our residents until death.

32 apartments for the elderly poor who are 65 years and over with little or no income. We determine the charge of the apartment by the ability to pay, so we are dependent upon the donations given to us to keep the apartments updated and cared for.

My mother-in-law was a resident at this facility until her death. She was so happy here and we were impressed with the way the staff interacted with her. The place was clean and well taken care of as was Mom. This would be a wonderful place for any elderly person to call home as they will get the care they need and deserve.

Little Sisters Of The Poor is an amazing nursing home. I am a volunteer here and I couldn't ask for a better place to be. Also with that being said my grandma had lived here. She had been in some pretty screwed up nursing homes in her lifetime but she was happy living here. She has passed away but in her last moments she couldn't have been any happier. She was surrounded by staff and family in her last moments. This nursing home is for the elderly poor and they pay little to nothing out of pocket while they live here. I couldn't be happier with them. If you are looking for a nursing home this is my most recommended one for anyone.
