The Meadowlark Difference

Meadowlark Hills is a not-for-profit continuing care retirement community. In 1974, a group of citizens noticed that the city’s retired population was growing smaller and smaller, due to a lack of living options. In an effort to help keep Manhattan’s community thriving and to give older adults more choice in the matter of where they live during retirement, these citizens partnered with six local churches to create Meadowlark Hills. Built on the concepts of continuum care, respect and compassion, Meadowlark Hills opened in 1980.

Since its opening, the organization has undergone great transformations to encompass and honor the household model. Meadowlark Hills is each resident’s home. Staff, residents and board members are committed to enhancing quality of life by nurturing individuality and independence. Meadowlark is growing a value-driven community while leading the way in honoring inherent senior rights and building strong and meaningful relationships with all whose lives are touched.  The organization is not only serving its own residents, but we are helping others around the world to change the culture of long-term care.
