Floor Plans


Are pets allowed?

Pets such as cats, birds and dogs may be allowed based on an interview that is conducted as part of our application process. A plan for attending to the pet’s needs—such as dog walking—must be in place in the event that the resident is unable to do so due to inclement weather, illness, etc. Maintaining sanitary conditions for the pet is the responsibility of the resident.

Do you offer respite care?

Goddard House and Homestead Hall both offer respite stays. If you’re going on vacation, or if you just need a temporary break from caregiving, we can accommodate any length of stay for your loved one.

Can you accommodate stays for out-of-town visitors?

For out-of-town guests visiting residents at either property, Goddard House can accommodate stays in one of our apartments. Each apartment includes a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bath. Concierge level services are available and include the option to select meal service prepared by our on-staff chef.
