About Jeanne Jugan Residence
Little Sisters of the Poor
Caring for the Elderly throughout the world.
For over 100 years, the Little Sisters of the Poor, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has fulfilled their mission to
offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ,
cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself. The Little Sisters
of the Poor provide high-quality care in a loving home atmosphere to elderly persons of low income.
In recognition to the staff, volunteers and Little Sisters, Jeanne Jugan Residence was awarded a
perfect five-star rating for 2014 via U.S. News and World Report as the only nursing home caring
for the elderly in the state of Delaware to receive a perfect score on the ratings from the Federal
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in all three areas—health inspections, nurse staffing,
and measures of medical quality of care.

Since 1903 the Little Sisters of the Poor have cared for the aged poor in Delaware.
Because of the generosity of our benefactors, thousands of needy aged persons have received quality
care in a loving home-like atmosphere, where they can feel themselves esteemed and respected for the
contributions that they have made to society. Indeed, today a number of our Residents are persons
who were once in a position to help provide for the needs of others. Now, due to changes in our
economy and in their personal situations, they find themselves dependent on the kindness of others.
As we strive to provide a comfortable home for the elderly with limited resources, the Little Sisters
of the Poor are truly grateful to all who partner with them in creative ways to meet the needs of
the elderly. Initiatives include the Nun Run 5K and our Spaghetti Dinner event.
The Nun Run 5K raises funds for the Sisters to care for the needy aged in the Delmarva area, in the Jeanne Jugan Residence.
For over 100 years they have offered quality care in a loving home atmosphere to thousands of elderly persons of low
income. The 2013 race raised $16,000, and the 2014 race raised $22,000, 2016 race raised $32,000 - which directly benefits our residents.
