"Being a Director of Nursing for over 8 years, I still believe Our Lord directed my professional nursing career to St. Joseph’s Residence and to helping the Little Sisters of the Poor in their mission of caring for the elderly. My role is more of a vocation than a career, especially within this Christ-centered environment. From my experience, it is a unique place because of the family-oriented culture. I am really happy to be here and work for the Little Sisters and with the wonderful and dedicated staff."
Violeta de los Reyes, R.N., Director of Nursing
To Chef Stu Martinez, fresh food is a passion he’s developed over decades of culinary experience as a teacher and educator. He sums up his food philosophy with “it’s all from scratch.” He arrives at his state-of-the-art and spotless kitchen before dawn to create delicious and interesting daily meals that delight the Residents, the Sisters, retreat visitors, and special guests. And Stu also enjoys preparing for special events such as feast days and the monthly Residents’ birthday party. “It’s the fresh food and the personal touch,” he says, “that turns the meal into “comfort food.

We have had many activities in the home to keep the Residents entertained. Activities department has been very busy with Weekly Happy Hour, Hallway Bingo, Popcorn & Ice Cream Social, all being delivered to their rooms. Diane & Denise circulate each floor delivering the goodies, all while playing some music, singing and dancing; something the Residents look forward to every afternoon.
