Enhanced Assisted Living Apartments: Freedom, Safety, and Care

We all reach an age when we need a little help during the day. That is why St. John’s Meadows features 38 one-bedroom apartments designed for enhanced assisted living. We call it “Hawthorne,” where residents enjoy fine dining three times daily, weekly housekeeping, personal laundry and linen service, transportation, and much more. Plus, aides are on duty day and night to provide assistance when needed.

Peace of Mind That Begins with You

Together, we determine when you need a gentle assist during your day. If you need a hand getting up, washing up, or getting dressed, we are here to help. If you could use a little help to organize your meds or get to dinner, we are here for you. We make sure that a Registered Nurse is on duty or on call 24 hours a day. And that is just the beginning of what St. John’s Enhanced Assisted Living has to offer.

Peace of mind – that is what I have now that my mother has moved into St John’s Hawthorne facility. As her primary care giver for the past few years – moving her to an Assisted Living Facility was an adjustment for both of us. The staff has welcomed her (and me) with compassion and understanding. My mother is very young – but has some health issues that required this transition. The staff goes above and beyond – they care for her well-being in a manner that is supportive and friendly. Cathy Vail, daughter of a Hawthorne resident

Hawthorne staff are nothing short of amazing. Professional, efficient, knowledgeable, genuine, and communicative. I have moved my aunt into this facility, and in the week she has been there, I have communicated with staff more than I had communicated with staff at the last facility in which she resided for two years. Having a background in healthcare myself, I am impressed, and relieved to have my aunt living at Hawthorne. I cannot thank you all enough. Bev, niece of Hawthorne resident
