At Saint Joseph’s we understand and encourage the enrichment in our residents lives by promoting socialization, community involvement and friendship. We value the type of connection that our residents make with younger generations and support their ability to teach valuable lessons to others. We also believe that a younger population is able to bring new ideas and interests into our residents lives.

By offering college students an opportunity to live in our facility, we support their professional and personal growth by allowing them real life working experiences. Students gain valuable knowledge by working directly with our residents and by developing professional and communication skills. Students are required to work a minimum of 16 hours each week but additional time spent with residents is strongly encouraged.

Students currently have private rooms with a shared bath and shower room. A common area is available for students along with a meal purchasing program.
