Bishop’s Commons Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

OSWEGO, NY – Ten years have passed since Bishop’s Commons opened its doors to seniors in the community promising to “provide the comforts of home without the worries” to all who resided at Oswego’s first assistive living residence.

Since March 2000, three hundred residents have come through the doors, making Bishop’s Commons their home, making new friends, and in many cases catching up with old ones.

Since 2000 Bishop’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, Bishop’s Commons staff strives to go “above and beyond” with customer service keeping this a number one priority.

“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,” said senior living coordinator Julie Chetney. “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.”

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.

Bishop’s Commons is part of the St. Luke Health Services Campus conveniently located on a wooded, scenic hillside, overlooking the Oswego River and falls.
