SAINT JOSEPH’S HOME OF SPRINGFIELD | CALL US TODAY: 217-529-5596

About Us

The Sisters of St. Francis of the Immaculate Conception established St. Joseph’s Home in 1903.

That tradition of ministry carries on to this day as our Sisters in Residence provide the leadership and inspiration to continue our mission of providing individualized care in a respectful environment that supports each resident’s beliefs while reflecting the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.

Our professional administrative staff share in this mission of serving individuals in their golden years and providing the measure of extra care that they require.

Allow us to introduce a few of our key staff members who are here to serve you as you continue your search for the right home for yourself or a loved one. We look forward to meeting you in person and answering all of your questions about all that St. Joseph’s Home has to offer.

    “My own father was a resident at St. Joseph’s Home and I know first-hand the care he received from the staff and Sisters. I was not in ministry at St. Joseph’s Home at the time, and knew dad was in good hands when I left him. It gave me such peace. Grounded in the tradition of St. Francis, our home provides spiritual, physical and emotional nourishment to all residents and their families.”

    Social Services

    “I love getting to know our residents and their families. I also am happy to be living and working with my fellow Sisters as we minister to God’s elderly people. I am grateful to our staff members for choosing to care for our residents and be part of our St. Joseph’s family. I think that anyone who needs care or any family member of someone who needs care should definitely consider St. Joseph’s Home because we do try to make it home for our residents. Many times, families who have taken their loved one home for a visit will tell us that their loved one will say ‘I’m ready to go home now’ – meaning St. Joseph’s Home.”

    Resident Advocate

    “As part of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Immaculate Conception, working with residents and their families at St. Joseph’s Home allows me to really live out our charism of making known God’s compassionate care. While I have been part of other ministries, serving in St. Joseph’s Home is such a special privilege as I have the opportunity to be a compassionate presence to God’s frailest - the elderly. At St. Joseph’s Home, we strive to understand the needs of each resident, and work to provide care for the complete person."

    Pastoral Care & Social Services

    “I especially enjoy my relationship with the residents - getting acquainted with them, responding to their needs, and walking with them as companions on the journey Homeward. Genuine love, respect, friendliness, and quality care are the hallmark of St. Joseph’s Home, and they speak louder than words. The Sisters and our dedicated staff work together in a spirit of Christian love and service to create the home-like environment about which families and visitors to the Home regularly comment.”

    Volunteer Services

    “Sometimes there is something special about a place that keeps calling us back. That is the case with me. I was at St. Joseph's Home from 1979-1981 and again from 1990-1992. I am now back Home again since the summer of 2019. My wish here at St. Joseph's Home is that I can be of service to God by being of service to others. I hope to love our Community motto - to make God's compassionate presence known.”
