St. Paul’s Home is a loving place where Sisters, Residents, staff and all who share in the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor form a close-knit family. The Sisters welcome the elderly poor who have depleted their assets and are 65 years old or older. The family spirit exists from a “joyful hospitality” embracing all with open arms, hearts and minds.
- The Little Sisters live at the home and are available 24/7 to respond to Residents’ needs. The Sisters create a “Culture of Life” for their Residents.
- The highest quality medical care is of primary importance. Second is an emphasis on Restorative Nursing – physical therapy and other programs designed to help individuals return to or maintain their highest practicable level of functioning.
- A variety of activities and events encourage the development of friends and support systems among the Residents, as well as their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
- The home’s chapel is available for quiet and prayer for all Residents; and daily Mass and rosary for those who wish to participate.
- Rooms are single occupancy and most rooms have private bathrooms.
- Independent living apartments are equipped with a kitchenette, living area and bedroom.
- Hot meals three times a day are available in the dining rooms.
- Round the clock presence and care are provided by the Sisters for Residents who are dying.
The love and care of the elderly poor is the heart of the Sisters mission, as is their spirit of hospitality. This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the Little Sisters coming to serve the elderly in America. The Cincinnati Home will start the celebration of this huge milestone with a Mass of Thanksgiving on October 20, the same month the Sisters started serving the elderly in Cincinnati 150 years ago!
More details about the celebration are to come so stay in contact with the us!
