Coming Soon!
The Senior Residence at St. Matthew the Apostle

The Senior Residence at St. Matthew the Apostle will be a 26 unit supportive senior living community.  Residents will receive three hot home cooked meals a day, housekeeping, recreation and assistance with medication.  The community will have 24 hour staff and extensive community spaces.

The community at St. Matthew’s is being developed by Build with Purpose, an Edison based non profit with offices currently located in the St. Matthew convent.  St. Matthew’s will be Build with Purpose’s second senior care community. In 2013, Build converted the vacant convent at St. Peter the Apostle Church in River Edge to 24 units of supportive senior living. Since then, the Senior Residence at St. Peter’s has grown to become not only a home to many seniors but a contributor to the broader River Edge community, as well.  The successful St. Peter’s model will be replicated at St. Matthew’s.
