Saint Anne Communities offers residents a culture of self-respect and dignity in a Christian atmosphere. Each resident is offered individualized, high quality health care that encourages freedom and independence while preserving their dignity and uniqueness as creations of God.
In 1960, The University of Notre Dame studied the aging population in the Fort Wayne-South Bend area and discovered critical housing needs. They envisioned Saint Anne Communities as one way to help solve this problem. That vision became a reality in 1966, thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Geneva Davidson, who was dedicated to the needs of the aging population, especially those without family support. Upon her death, Mrs. Davidson left the majority of her estate to the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend with instructions that the money be used to build a home for the aging.
Since opening in 1967, Saint Anne Communities has become the benchmark for high-quality healthcare in Fort Wayne. Over the years, Saint Anne Communities added 52 apartments and 16 rehab suites to its Randallia Place campus, for a total of 161 nursing home beds and 88 apartments. Saint Anne’s also offers a beautiful and spacious chapel, where residents and their loved ones can celebrate daily Mass or weekly Protestant services.
In 2005, Saint Anne Communities added a 3,500 square foot rehabilitation gym and opened 16 rehabilitation suites for those needing short-term stays at Randallia Place. The Courtyard Club Adult Day Service opened in 2010 at Randallia Place in response to the growing needs of the community. The Club offers a friendly and safe environment for individuals living at home to stay active and enjoy socialization.
In 2012, Saint Anne’s added an assisted living area specializing in memory care at Randallia Place, with 14 individual apartments surrounding a family room and offering 24-hour staffing and specialized activities for those struggling with the effects of mild to moderate dementia.
In July 2015, a second location was temporarily added, Saint Anne Communities ~ Grace Pointe, through a partnership with Catholic Charities. The Grace Pointe location implemented the same memory care concept developed in 2012 at Randallia Place. Grace Pointe offered an entire building dedicated to the needs of those struggling with the effects of mild to moderate dementia.
Last year, Saint Anne Communities welcomed another campus into the Saint Anne family. Saint Anne Victory Noll, an independent and assisted living community located in Huntington, Indiana, is now open to the public. Located on the lovely and spacious grounds of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters in Huntington County, Saint Anne Communities Victory Noll offers retirement living in a beautiful, retreat-like setting.
Through the years, as Saint Anne Communities has grown and expanded to meet the needs of friends and neighbors within the community, the focus on providing conscientious, quality care has never wavered. Come discover what retirement living in a loving, Christian atmosphere is all about.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our Saint Anne Communities locations soon!
