For older adults in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and even farther away, Kendal on Hudson is home. Situated on a 25-acre campus with three types of senior living options and levels of service, residents enjoy a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant and actively social retirement living environment built on a foundation of Quaker values and principles and complete with peace of mind.

As a Life Plan Community with a Lifecare contract for those 62 and better, Kendal on Hudson offers Independent Living, an Assisted Living facility, Skilled Nursing care, Rehabilitation and Memory Support, depending on each individual’s unique needs. Not only does this bring everyone peace of mind knowing their health needs will be met for the rest of their lives, but spouses, too—as couples with different care needs have the convenience of living in the same senior living community.

They have published books, traveled the globe, and held senior positions in some of the nation’s leading companies. They come to Kendal on Hudson to continue learning, growing and building community while they simultaneously define their own lifestyle.
