Senior living options

Quality care is provided to 80 elderly Residents (60+ years old) who are without financial means, family or social support. Many seniors come to Queen of Peace as independent Residents residing in subsidized apartments on the 4th and 5th floors. As their skills decline and they require more assistance, they can move to a floor where an appropriate level of skilled nursing care is provided.The continuum of services permits a sense of security throughout life. Once a senior Resident comes to Queen of Peace, they have a home for the remainder of their years.

Living options include:

  • Apartment living is available to the needy elderly who are still able to live independently. Rent is based on one’s income and assets.
  • Skilled nursing care is offered for those Residents who require care and assistance with daily needs.
