The Bernardine is an affordable community for older adults that boasts spacious apartments in a picturesque setting. Tucked in a neighborhood community in the city of Syracuse, the Bernardine offers Enriched Living and Assisted Living Programs that provide residents the added peace of mind knowing that they can age gracefully in one place without needing to relocate. Residents enjoy daily activities including exercise, social events, happy hour, entertainment by local artists and seasonal celebrations. The Bernardine has an outdoor seating area and patio where residents and families like to spend time visiting on nice days. We host bands, barbecues and entertainment here as well.
