My parents moved to Kendal when it first opened in 1991. While my father died almost eight years ago, after spending six years in their healthcare unit, my mother is still alive at age 95. Besides living in their initial independent living apartment, my mother has had an efficiency apartment in the assisted living unit, a private room and bath in the memory unit, and now, a private room and bath in the healthcare unit. I can not say enough good things about Kendal. Of course, until entering late stage dementia, my mother would have told you that neither she nor my father ever regretted their decision to move from New Jersey to live at Kendal. Furthermore, after visiting there for twenty years now, let me say that I have heard nothing but praise from residents as well as family members. Since I now visit my mother at least weekly for hours at a time, I am pleased by the care which is provided by people who have true heart for their jobs. The fact that this is not merely a job to them results in a wonderful environment for residents and family members.

In every area of its work, Kendal is guided by its published Values and Standards which are, in turn, rooted in basic Quaker values. The Kendal organization relies not only on the energies and good will of its staff members, board members, and residents but also on the exchange of ideas with others in the field of service to older persons. Kendal will take an active role in public policy issues and will participate in professional associations.
