About Madonna Living Community

Madonna Living Community

Caring for Others 
Our rich history and mission of caring for others began in 1967. Many changes and expansions later, Madonna Living Community; Madonna Towers and Madonna Meadows of Rochester and Madonna Summit of Byron continues the mission to serve Rochester and Byron seniors, as well as others that move to the area to be near family and excellent medical care, or transitioning thru our community for extended therapy treatments after a medical discharge before returning home.  We are a continuum care campus with senior living services. Delivering compassionate care that’s rooted in our Catholic values, we’re affiliated with the non-profit Benedictine Health System. We are committed to serving everyone of all denominations in a friendly environment with a true sense of community.
