An Introduction to the Novo-Diveevo Adult Home

The Adult Home of the Russian Orthodox Convent Novo-Diveevo was founded in 1972 by Archbishop Andrei of Rockland to provide care of the elderly persons of Slavic background. Archbishop Andrei felt that it was important to provide care for the elderly, especially women who did not have family to care for them in their elder years.

The Adult Home is licensed by New York State and staffed around the clock. The 76-bed facility is nestled on the grounds of the Convent. The Home provides each resident with a private, furnished room, complete with a bed, dresser, desk, two chairs, night table, lamp, draperies, and a wall closet. Residents may bring their own furniture if they wish. A television, radio, small refrigerator, and telephone are permitted in the rooms. The Convent grounds offer an ideal opportunity for walks in the fresh country air amidst natural beauty.
