Philosophy

As Little Sisters of the Poor we care for the elderly poor in the spirit of humble service we have received from our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan. We minister to the elderly as we would to Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until God calls them home.We welcome low-income elderly who are at least 60 years of age regardless of faith, race or religion, and we strive to provide the best level of medical care possible, while also ministering to the emotional and spiritual needs of our Residents. We encourage an active lifestyle through meaningful activities, a lively pastoral program, and daily Mass celebrated in our chapel for those who choose to attend.

We adhere to all the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, especially those concerning the sanctity of human life. We reject all forms of euthanasia and assisted suicide, and we protect our Residents from these practices, as well as from all forms of abuse and neglect.

We continue our tradition of assuring a constant presence to those who have entered the dying process. Accompanying a Resident on his or her final journey is the greatest expression of our hospitality mission and the most sacred aspect of our work.
