We provide more than just medical care—we foster an atmosphere of respect, dignity and community.

Skilled Nursing Care and Long-Term Care at Kendal at Lexington

Kendal at Lexington provides a higher level of long-term care and skilled nursing care in the Benjamin Borden Health Center. We base care on a person-centered approach. That means we learn about and build on each individual’s personal history, preferences and experiences.

The Borden Health Center serves Kendal at Lexington residents who have a Resident Care Agreement, as well as people from the greater community who have Medicaid or Medicare coverage, or privately pay.
