Kendal on Hudson offers attractive accommodations in a striking setting on the banks of the Hudson River, located just 35 miles north of New York City, in the historic lower Hudson Valley. The community provides many amenities, residential services, and comprehensive on-site health care for life.
The Kendal environment is one in which each resident may experience his or her full potential. Believing that retirement and growing older can bring new opportunities for growth, the Kendal environment enables residents to build a stimulating community where healthy aging and wellness, lifelong learning and social opportunities are fostered.
The lifestyle of the community is directed by the residents. Every resident is a member of the Residents’ Association. There is a 13-member Residents Council and 30 resident committees – education, horticulture, trips, advocacy, and art, just to name a few.
The character of the Kendal on Hudson community is that of a riverside village and takes advantage of the exceptional views of the Hudson River, Tappan Zee Bridge, dramatic sunsets, and rocky cliffs on the western shore. Dining rooms and many of the common areas overlook the river, and residents may choose apartments with a river view or overlooking garden areas or parkland.
Underlying the design is an emphasis on natural light, environmental sensitivity, barrier free access to all areas of the community, variety, simplicity, and community. The setting supports and enhances each resident’s individual lifestyle, promotes community interaction, accommodates a wide variety of cultural, recreational, and educational programs, and optimizes mobility for people with a variety of physical capabilities.
Other features include:
- Easy access and enclosed walkways to the community center and health center from all residences
- Wellness center with indoor pool, well equipped fitness center, classroom, shower rooms, an extensive program of fitness and exercise classes
