ABOUT US

At The Kindred House, we believe that faith and service are the cornerstone of our existence. Our purpose is to provide top-tier, cruise ship style living with a premier concierge experience for our residents and day service guests.

We believe that our residents and guests, as well as their family members, are our extended family, and as such we strive to be of immense value to each of them.  Providing excellent service and care to our residents and helping others is what drives us.

We are continually striving to improve the overall resident and guest experience by providing as much positive impact through our interactions as possible. 

- The Kindred Difference -

At The Kindred House, we pride ourselves on providing the best level of service and care for each of our full-time residents and day service guests. We understand the needs, desires, and goals of our residents and guests are specific to each individual.

While other senior living facilities continually charge higher and higher rates for each additional level of service needed, we do not. We offer a unique, all-inclusive pricing model that includes all support, care and amenities needed by each resident or guest, providing an unmatched peace of mind for everyone.
