Wartburg in Westchester, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior care services. Unlike conventional retirement communities, we provide a wide range of services to both residents and people in their own homes. From independent, assisted living and award-winning nursing home care to rehabilitation, home care and adult day care services, and caregiver support. 

Perhaps that’s why U.S. News & World Report has named Wartburg one of the “Best Nursing Homes in New York State". At Wartburg, our vision is of healing and hope upheld through care that touches on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and it has been for nearly 150 years. Founded in 1865 and caring for older loved ones since 1898, we believe that everyone we serve is family. That includes our residents, their families, staff and volunteers. 

And because we’re a not-for-profit, we can reinvest in our commitment to serving others, rather than pay dividends to shareholders. As needs change, we have more resources to dedicate to expansions, staffing and advances in care: In fact, we most recently opened a new affordable senior housing complex as well as a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center.

Interested applicants should send their inquiries to: 

Dorothea Bell, Executive Vice President Human Resources or  or
