OSWEGO, NY – Ten years have passed since BishopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Commons opened its doors to seniors in the community promising to Ã¢â‚¬Å“provide the comforts of home without the worriesÃ¢â‚¬Â to all who resided at OswegoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first assistive living residence.
Since March 2000, three hundred residents have come through the doors, making BishopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Commons their home, making new friends, and in many cases catching up with old ones.
Since 2000 BishopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Commons has become one of a kind in Oswego County and a new choice for seniors who want to remain active and independent.
While offering a unique combination of attractive, affordable apartment homes and support services, BishopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Commons staff strives to go Ã¢â‚¬Å“above and beyondÃ¢â‚¬Â with customer service keeping this a number one priority.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is important that our residents and their families know that we are here for them day in and day out whatever their need may be,Ã¢â‚¬Â said senior living coordinator Julie Chetney. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It may a simple cup of coffee and pleasant conversation or a higher level of assistance with medications or personal care, our staff is here to improve overall quality of life.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Providing three meals each day, 24-hour staffing, scheduled transportation for recreation and medical appointments, activities and social opportunities, weekly laundry and linen service, and housekeeping are all included in a simple monthly rent.
Licensed home care agency, St. Luke Home Health Services, provides additional expanded care at a reasonable rate.
BishopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Commons is part of the St. Luke Health Services Campus conveniently located on a wooded, scenic hillside, overlooking the Oswego River and falls.
