RPH became an Eden Alternative Community in 2002 and since then we have brought the Eden revolution in person-directed care to our honored Elders. We provide a fulfilling way of life where each person is truly "at home." The RPH Homestead was established in 1925 and provides both assisted living and memory care services on Thurston Road in the 19th Ward of Rochester. There are 37 Elders living in our North Hall which offers an elegant Gathering Room with an oriental carpet and stately Victoria surroundings. North Hall reflects the charm and character of historic Rochester. Each Elder enjoys a private room and residents are encouraged to bring their own furnishings so they feel at home along with easy access to the Country Kitchen, sun porches, a Computer Room, beauty shop and Country Store. Don & Norma's Ice Cream Parlor is a favorite spot for Elders and families gather. A bus, van, staff and volunteers schedule regular community outings with destinations to local restaurants, cultural events, picnics at the beach, shopping and rides in the country.
The Homestead's Memory Care residences in South Hall provide four levels of Memory Care for up to 55 Elders. The first floor offers the main dining room, private dining areas, an assembly room, chapel and living room. There is easy access to a secured enclosed patio and walking paths, flower gardens and planters and a summer vegetable garden. On the lower level is our fitness center, arts and crafts room and beauty salon. The second floor provides single bedrooms and bath for those requiring Early-Stage Memory Care. The floorplan offers and open living room with large screen TV, a kitchen with cooking available (under supervision), and a dining room for family gatherings and socials. The third and fourth floors are secured for the safety of our Elders. The third floor is for Mid-Stage Memory Care and fourth floor for Advanced-Stage Memory Care and Enhanced Care. Each Elder has a private bedroom and bathroom along with large shower facilities and on-site laundry.
The Memory Care Residences at Cottage Grove opened in 2009. These four adjacent residences exemplify RPH's philosophy and vision for Elder care as we nurture relationships that feel like family within homes that are truly home.

The 12 Elders in each house have a private bedroom and full bath with shower. There is secure outdoor space with walkways and gardens that connect the four residences as well as an on-site beauty parlor and bus transportation to many social events and outings.

The RPH Service Board hosts annual events including the Holiday Party, May Tea and Summer Carnival. RPH hosts monthly all-house Birthday Parties and staff gather around Elders to celebrate their individual birthdays.
Our meals are cooked on-location and served family style. Dining is an important time for our Elders so we take time to share the meal, share our stories and value our time together. Families and friends are invited to also share meals in our private dining areas or at the main table.
