About Eliza Jennings Assisted Living
Choices for aging well

Whether you are seeking independent living in a secure community setting, searching for just the right assisted living environment, care in your own home, require rehabilitation or skilled nursing care, Eliza Jennings offers a solution for every need.
The Eliza Jennings legacy began in 1888 with the philanthropy of our benefactress, Eliza Wallace Jennings, who intended to care for women of need.

Eliza Jennings Assisted Living Community at Devon Oaks
At Eliza Jennings, we consider our assisted living communities to be a comprehensive solution for older adults unable to manage living on their own. Our assisted living residents do not yet require extensive medical or nursing care, and our assisted living communities primarily act as a middle ground between independent living and full nursing care.
Our assisted living communities are equipped to provide residents with 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living, such as dressing, grooming and hygiene, eating, and other routines. Beyond in-home care, residents in our assisted living communities are provided access to nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other licensed professionals.
Eliza Jennings' Devon Oaks community is designed to maximize vitality for older adults, and the community’s variety of spacious apartments are designed for functionality as well as safety. Fitness programs and exercise classes are customized to meet individual needs.
Hope for people living with Dementia
Eliza Jennings is the first location in the United States to offer SAIDO Learning®, an innovative proven method for improving the quality of life for older adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other symptoms of dementia. SAIDO has been practiced in Japan for more than 11 years with impressive results, and empirical data have proven its effectiveness.
For the first time, we can do more than simply care for older adults with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, at Eliza Jennings we can now treat the symptoms and set goals for improvement. SAIDO Learning is an innovative, non-pharmacological treatment that has been shown to reverse or reduce the symptoms of dementia among older adults with cognitive impairment. This breakthrough, life-transforming treatment is available in the United States through Eliza Jennings.
