New State-of-the-Art Memory Care / Assisted Living Residences

The Sisters of St. Joseph are partnering with Nazareth Living Center (NLC) to build a state-of-the-art Memory Care assisted living residence. We plan to add 48 memory care/assisted living private rooms in a modern, secure building. See the renderings below of the anticipated front entrance as well as the protected courtyard for residents to relax, read and enjoy the outdoors.

Aging Trends

The facts are simple regarding the aging of the U.S. population.

  • The over-65 population will rise from 12 percent of Americans in 2000 to 19 percent by 2030.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has estimated that 70 percent of us who reach the age of 65 will need some form of long-term care.

We Are Responding to the Need

A recent market study indicated a need for additional assisted living memory care throughout the area; it is at a critical level in South County St. Louis.The new facility will feature social and family gathering rooms to help more residents maintain their health while living in beautiful, private rooms.
