Senior Independent Living

Enjoy Worry-Free Living with St. John's Senior Housing Communities

You still want to live on your own, but you have grown tired of home maintenance—especially mowing the lawn and shoveling your driveway. You would like to live somewhere where those chores are taken care of—but you think senior housing is too stodgy and institutional. St. John’s has the solution: the Rochester, NY, area’s most vibrant independent living communities—Brickstone by St. John’s and St. John’s Meadows.

Year over year consistently ranked “best of the best” in customer satisfaction net promoter score rankings, these senior housing communities are worth a closer look! Schedule your tour today.

With virtually all home maintenance chores taken care of and a wide range of pricing options, residents can choose how they want to spend their time and money. Transportation, dining, entertainment, and housekeeping are just some of the services available to residents of our senior communities. Our independent living options include private cottages, bungalowstownhouses and apartments, all with no entrance fees and the flexibility of month-to-month leases.

Residents also enjoy a wide range of amenities in a true community setting, including a helpful concierge; an indoor heated pool; bike paths and walking trails set among 35 acres of wetlands; numerous dining options, including Joey B’s at Brickstone; and much more—all just steps (or a free shuttle ride) away.

We were looking for a community that we could be involved in, not just sit around in our apartment. We also wanted a place that was open to new ideas we could propose- that was important. We loved that St. John’s is a non-for-profit and a continuum of care. Betty Keely & Loretta Bergen, residents of St. John's Meadows
