The elderly are among our greatest treasures. Their lives have brought them a unique perspective in our human family. Through their accomplishments, they bring lessons in endurance and self-sacrifice. Through their life-long experiences, they bring lessons in what is important in life.
As Little Sisters of the Poor, we care for the elderly poor in the same spirit of humble service that we have received from our Foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan. We welcome the elderly as we would Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until God calls them home.
In the words of our Foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan, “Making the elderly happy, that is what counts!”
