Growing older carries a unique set of challenges, for the senior, the family, and other potential caregivers. When crises occur, most of us aren’t prepared to act. We haven’t pre-planned. We don’t know where to find the resources we need. We often don’t even know what questions to ask.
That’s where we come in. For the past 50 years, St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System, a not-for-profit organization, has been the place where seniors, their families, and their caregivers find answers. Whether it’s occasional help that allows a senior to remain independent at home, a comfortable retirement residence that feels like home, or an assisted living or skilled nursing facility, St. Andrew’s can provide whatever you need. Thanks to donations to our Charitable Foundation, we are able to assist seniors at all income levels. We help them find and access the support they need and, most importantly, we help them Worry Less.
St. Andrew's was created in 1961 as a non-profit partnership of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri and The Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy, and it was expanded to include affiliation with the United Church of Christ in 2014. St. Andrew's is non-sectarian, faith-based, and an expert at serving both older adults and their caregivers.
Community connections. Compassion and optimism. Cutting-edge innovation that improves - and often extends - lives.
