Our 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 welcome the elderly as we would Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until God calls them home.

  • We welcome low-income elderly who are at least 65 years of age regardless of faith, race or religion.
  • The atmosphere of our home is friendly and home-like.
  • We strive to provide the best level of medical care possible, while also ministering to our Residents emotionally and spiritually.
  • We encourage an active lifestyle through meaningful activities, a lively pastoral program and opportunities for volunteering. Mass is celebrated daily 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.
  • The compassionate care and accompaniment of the dying is the summit of our ministry. It is our goal that no one dies alone.
  • In the words of our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan, “Making the elderly happy, that is what counts!”
