The Village of St. Edward


Our faith-based, not-for-profit community is a place where seniors can call home, a welcoming atmosphere that caters to their physical, spiritual and social needs,” —Annette Walters, Corporate Director of Marketing

Providing a home-like haven for joyful aging, where residents are treated like family, is the mission of The Village of St. Edward.

Staying active means being engaged with the community, and residents go on lots of field trips and stay involved. They also enjoy working out in the fitness centers and wellness checks from the nursing department. Walking clubs are popular, and the village even welcomes pets under 20 pounds, who are part of the action.

Emergency pendant alerts lend peace of mind for residents and their families. Chef-prepared, from-scratch meal planning is also a hallmark here.

Spiritual support is offered to Catholics in the form of mass, bible study and carrying out the sacraments. And many residents are non-Catholic, so they also provide plenty of non-denominational support, including monthly Spiritual Potpourri gatherings.

In keeping with its compassionate, Catholic values and commitment to community, seniors will never be asked to leave if they run out of funds.
