"St. Joseph Manor was founded in 1965 by the Poor Sisters of Jesus Crucified and the Sorrowful Mother. We are a member of Covenant Health Systems. We are located on several beautiful wooded acres nestled in the city of Brockton, Massachusetts. Our warm and welcoming home encourages residents to decorate their rooms, host their family members any time they wish and even visit with their pets! The vast majority of our residents live in private rooms! The remaining rooms are semi private. Every resident room has a beautiful view. Some rooms have private balconies or patios. St. Joseph Manor is one of only 4 nursing homes in Massachusetts that have been officially registered as an Eden Alternative home. The core concept of The Eden Alternative is simple and powerful. It includes seeing nursing homes as habitats for human beings rather than facilities for the frail and elderly. Eden Alternative i s a worldwide movement dedicated to creating enlivening environments and dedicated to the elimination of the plagues of Loneliness, Helplessness, and Boredom.

Nothing can substitute for the kindness of the night nurse who sits with a family member, or the nurses aide who gently coaxes a resident to join other residents in the community dining room, instead of eating alone in her room. The caring, compassion and love our associates have for our residents is evident in every smiling face you see when you walk through the halls of the Manor. In an industry where staff turnover is epidemic, St. Joseph Manor has the privilege of being led by a CEO who just celebrated her 27th year of employment. We are not only home to our residents, whose families entrust us with their care, but we are committed to meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each resident. Each person that joins our community has the ability to grow, contribute to their new surroundings and be well-known by their care partners. We offer recreational activities seven days a week, daily religious services, top quality nursing care and medical services overseen by Stephen Bresnahan, M.D., a board certified Geriatrician. Our Mission: Our Catholic ministry of compassionate healthcare provides person-centered services to people of all faiths in our home and within our community."
