Premier senior care

At an affordable rate

Welcome to The Hearth on James
Live Your Best, Every Day

Welcome to The Hearth on James! Our small, home-like Independent and Assisted Living community is perfect for seniors who want to stay active while receiving superior care.  We’re centrally located next to two major Syracuse highways, and less than a mile from Clinton Square, so there’s always something fun going on nearby! We’re also close to four major hospitals, so making it to doctor’s appointments is quick and easy.

We offer a choice of studio or one bedroom apartments in two distinct styles: the Rugby and the Deluxe.  Our residents love to stay busy, so our calendar is full of things to do, seven days a week. Some of their favorites include daily exercise classes, Manicure Mondays, Virtual Reality travel events, and Paint & Pour crafts, just to name a few.

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built in the Syracuse area for premier, affordable senior care. If you’re in the market for Independent or Assisted Living for yourself or someone you love, give us a call. We look forward to meeting you!

Total Coverage 360
Hospital-Grade Cleaning & Disinfection

To our residents, Hearth is home, and everyone wants to live in a home that’s tidy and clean. That’s why we’re proud to offer our state-of-the-art Total Coverage 360 cleaning standard in every Hearth community.

Using a Viking Pure Solutions cleaning agent generator producing two distinct cleaning agents – a surface cleaner and a sanitizer – our Total Coverage 360 cleaning standard ensures all common areas are completely sanitized a minimum of twice each day. This includes every wall, railing, stretch of carpet, and piece of furniture. Resident apartments are also sanitized regularly. 

The Viking Pure Solutions surface cleaner and sanitizer have been proven effective against bacteria, mold, and viruses similar to COVID-19, yet they are all natural, green-certified, and 100% non-toxic. Hearth wants you to rest easy knowing our communities are truly committed to the health and safety of our residents, staff, families, and visitors.
