For over a century, St. John’s has been at the forefront of efforts to shape a brighter future for older adults living in Rochester, New York. From Brickstone’s new urbanism model to New York State’s first Green House Homes, to the future of dementia care with Beyond Memory and the area’s first dementia resource center, St. John’s continues to build innovative senior housing communities and programs to meet the ever-evolving needs of older Rochesterians.

In 2024, St. John’s celebrates 125 years of welcoming meaningful change. Learn more about our journey and help us celebrate this significant milestone throughout the year!

Since 1899, St. John’s communities and services have empowered seniors to lead fulfilling lives. The St. John’s mission centers on embracing life with vibrant, caring, and life-affirming relationships. We are proud to be a major part of the Rochester community striving to be among the best places to age in America.
