Enriched Housing

Enriched Housing at Bishop’s Commons creates a unique combination of housing, support services and 24-hour personal assistance in an environment designed to promote independence, yet offer appealing opportunities for socializing and dining in larger groups, in a community featuring beautiful, home-like apartments, all at an affordable monthly rate.

Seniors are enthusiastic because our Enriched Housing provides the comforts of home without the worries. Although residents may need some degree of help with some activities—such as bathing, dressing, or medication supervision—they are more independent than those needing acute care. Their families are comforted because they know their loved one will have care available whenever they need it.

Activity, freedom, and assistance if you need it

Imagine a lifestyle that frees you to pursue your own interests. Imagine a vital and active community where friendships come easily and a sense of security eliminates worries.

Welcome to Bishop’s Commons, Oswego’s foremost senior living residence.

 “I just love my apartment. I’ve got so many good friends here, the meals are wonderful, and there’s so much for me to do—both here and out in the community. The staff…they’re marvelous. So kind and so good.”

— I. Smith, resident.


Beautiful location

Conveniently located on a scenic hillside overlooking the Oswego River and falls,

Bishop’s Commons is just minutes from downtown Oswego. So it’s easy for friends and family to visit, and for residents to visit businesses and medical offices. Plus, Bishop’s Commons provides transportation that takes residents on regular trips for shopping, dining, and areas of interest; like summer sunset concerts in Oswego’s Breitbeck Park on the shore of Lake Ontario.

The comforts of home, without the worries.

Like a fine restaurant, our dietary staff provides menu selections for residents to choose from at each meal, and residents gather together in our handsome, well-appointed dining area with river views, a fireplace, and plenty of room to socialize
