Leading the Way In Memory Care

We provide a loving and joyful environment where Elders are cared for as family and can experience well-being while living life to its fullest. Through our mindful and compassionate approach, we inspire our residents to live a happy and dignified life. Our philosophy of quality care recognizes meaning, purpose and fulfillment for all.

The Homestead is a Rochester Presbyterian Home facility, specialized in dementia, Alzheimer's, and respite, enhanced, and memory care. Our eden alternative approach ensures an active, happy lifestyle that maximizes the well-being of our residents. We are located in Downtown Rochester, NY at 256 Thurston Road.

"Thank you for absolutely everything! I am so grateful for the loving care Mom received at RPH. Her adjustment happened in the first five minutes we arrived in 2015...I have made friends on the staff that will last a lifetime. Hold a spot for me in the next 20-30 years. I can think of no other place I would rather be."

- Love, Ann

"When Mom arrived, she did not know anyone in the community. Almost immediately the staff at RPH treated Mom as if she was part of their family. The caring, loving atmosphere that you have created for all your residents made Mom feel comfortable, and helped to make us feel good about having her there. "

- Sincerely, Ken and Anne

"All the staff, in every position and at every level, are so kind and caring and obviously well trained. And they all know the name of every resident - and often their family member's names! Alot of loving people work there in all capacities. "

"You care for the Elders with such grace and respect. The programs, activities...even the dining experience are just awesome. Mom kept busy and was lovingly cared for during her two year stay. Staff even gave me hugs and support when I needed it most! I will be forever grateful."

- Thank you, Pam

"I've been so impressed with staff's willingness to assist, not only with Mom but with each of her children's needs and occasional demands. There are too many to thank who were involved with Mom's life and care...With their loving care I know that Mom lived a lot longer than anyone could imagine...Best wishes to you all - now and forever."

- With great affection, Connie

"The inevitable task of having to transition my Grandmother from her home to Assisted Living was a very difficult one for me. You all made it a little easier as you showed through your love, compassion, caring and understanding that "Home" is where the heart is. My Grandmother embraced RPH as her new home and you all as her family and that speaks volumes."

- Sincerely, Darlene

"All the staff are very professional, loving, and really care about their residents. This never changes - we were overwhelmed with this wonderful staff back to the first day we toured the facility."

"Thank you for your individual contributions that enhanced Mom's final years and for the job that you continue to do in caring for others. If you've ever thought the little things are no big deal, then you need to think again. They're a very big deal to the recipient."

- Our best regards always - Paul and Rhonda
