A Lifetime of Meaning
Our residents do not leave behind their treasure of knowledge and experience, dreams and aspirations when they come to live at Kirkhaven. As care providers, it is our duty to find the ways to adapt equipment, routines and the environment, whatever it takes, to enable our elders to continue lifelong ambitions and pleasures.
Being productive is about being vital and useful. Everyone has gifts to give. Our community is Kirkhaven, and we want to empower our residents to be active, useful, productive members, so they can shine forth with the abilities they've acquired over a lifetime.

A Culture Change Nursing Home
At Kirkhaven, we embrace a philosophy of person-centered care, empowering our residents to direct the decisions surrounding their daily lives. Routines never come before personal needs. With consistent staff assignments, real relationships are formed and quality medical attention can be provided around the rhythms of a more home-like environment.
When you find yourself between hospital-level care and returning to your home and work, The Transitional Care Center at Kirkhaven is the perfect place to regain your health and get back on your feet. Our transitional care wing features a fully equipped rehabilitation suite with a specialized staff.
One of the first facilities in Rochester to develop a center exclusively for the needs of dementia residents, Kirkhaven maintains a staff trained in dementia therapies and solely dedicated to serving our special care residents.
