Grounded in our Kendal Values and Practices, we continually seek a better way to create “home”, filled with warmth, belonging and honoring the dignity and autonomy of each individual. Jameson House nurtures community and connectedness, offering choice and ensuring that each resident, regardless of cognitive ability, remains engaged with the community as a whole.
