I visited this facility
I usually travel now and then and I need a place where my mom can stay short term. I was glad Kendal has this type of service. The facility is not too far from home since it's in New York state. It's more rustic and I think it's good for me to get off the city. The cost is not that expensive compared to here in New York City. They did have respite care and not just long term stay. So that's what I'm looking for, respite care. So when she wants to come home, it would be easy for her to do so. Also, it would be a place for my mom to relax. She has the tendency to be so busy at home. I'm glad I found Kendal.

Kendal on Hudson is a relatively new facility (about 6 years old) and is still "coming of age". At the outset, such a large preponderance of the residents were fully independent that the focus was more on independent living and less on providing care to those no longer capable of living fully on their own. As the population has aged, the facility has become more aware of, and focused on, the needs of semi-independent and dependent residents. As a result, Kendal on Hudson, while still developing services for those in need, is maturing into an outstanding community that will take residents from fully independent living to full-time nursing care. It is located adjascent to the Hudson River (no direct access), Phelps Memorial Hospital and a lovely state park; and within easy access to travel and shopping facilities. The food service is good and continually tries to adapt to the preferences and needs of the community. The apartments are roomy and very nicely put together. There are many, many resident-organized activities, including regular educational programs and faith groups; and a highly-qualified, caring staff.
From Kendal on Hudson
The concept of Kendal on Hudson emerged when two separate organizations - both with a vision of developing a continuing care retirement community in Westchester County, NY - discovered their common ground and worked together to accomplish that goal. In the mid-nineties, The Study Group for Retirement Alternatives, a committee of the Purchase Quarter of The New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), asked The Kendal Corporation to work with them to explore developing a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in northern Westchester County or areas north. The Phelps Memorial Hospital Center board and staff leadership had been exploring the possibility of developing senior housing to be located on their river-front property in Sleepy Hollow, NY, for several years. When the two organizations were brought together in 1994, they began to work toward the creation of their common goal.
