    Under the administration of the Franciscan Missionary Brothers the facility’s first concern is to convey and provide a concept of care that recognizes the dignity of the person without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Care at the facility is designed to help the resident reach his greatest potential in spite of his disability or infirmity. The facility permits the resident to retain his own identity and exercise his talents and abilities as best he can, and attempts to meet not only his physical but social, psychological and spiritual needs.
    All genders welcome
    Age 18 and over
    Eligibility requirements:
    All applications for admission should be made to the administrator, and will be reviewed by the admissions committee who determines whether the facility is a suitable place for the individual seeking admission.

Included will be a physical examination and medical history to be obtained from the applicant’s attending physician.
