    At St. Joseph Nursing Home, in Utica, NY,we understand that we will never be able to replace the memories and love associated with one's home. Our goal and our mission is provide a "homelike atmosphere," one that embraces the resident every day in a family that shares, laughs, and, yes, even cries together. We understand that one of the most difficult decisions a person or family has to make is placing of a loved one in a Nursing Home. We want to assure you that coming to St. Joseph means a new beginning-new friends, new experiences and perhaps, even new hope. It will mean that, as a family member, you will find some peace of mind-no more wondering if mom or dad turned off the stove before going to bed, or if they are ok when they haven't answered the phone for the last three hours. Everyday, 24 hours a day, your family member will have the security of knowing that he/she has someone who can respond quickly to his/her call. Your family member will be treated with the dignity, respect, love, and attention that he/she deserves as a child of God-it's our ministry, it's our mission.
