Kendal on Hudson
Sleepy Hollow, NY - Assisted Living, Nursing Home, Independent Living, CCRC
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.
