Our first priority at Vassar-Warner Home is to make sure residents remain independent and in good health. To this end, we carefully plan activities to keep a body moving—from a simple ball toss to regularly scheduled walks through our historic Poughkeepsie neighborhood.

Other programs we offer to keep residents active include:

  • Weekly recreational outings
  • Yoga
  • Dance programs—Zumba is popular
  • Exercise programs
  • Daily walks indoors and outdoors

Of course each of us eventually has an off day or falls ill. Rest assured that a member of our professional staff is on duty every day of the week, 24 hours a day. In addition to monitoring residents’ changing health needs, our staff provides services that include:

  • Arranging transportation to a doctor’s appointment
  • Requesting house call doctor visits
  • Ordering and assisting with prescriptions

In the event of an emergency, Vassar-Warner Home is within a few miles of two top-notch Poughkeepsie hospitals: Saint Francis Hospital and Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital.
