Our Philosophy

The Little Sisters of the Poor care for the needy elderly in a spirit of humble service passed down from our foundress, Jeanne Jugan.  The elderly are treated as Jesus Christ would be, served with kindness, love and respect until they are called home by God.

The needy elderly are invited into our Home as early as age sixty (although the average age of our Residents is 84 years).  Our Home is built on the following:

  • A home-like, family environment
  • Excellent medical care
  • Emotional and spiritual support
  • Active lifestyles with five to ten daily activities to participate in
  • A pastoral program and other opportunities to volunteer throughout the Home
  • 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 protect our Residents from these practices
  • Our Residents are protected from any form of abuse or neglect
  • The Little Sisters accompany the Residents during their dying,
    offering constant prayer and support to them and their loved ones
  • We welcome the collaboration of many dedicated staff, volunteers and
    benefactors who we see as an extension of our hands and hearts
