At DeSmet Retirement Community we strive to be a step above the rest. We are a faith-based, mission-driven community, and we strive to incorporate our roots and values in how we treat our residents and staff. At DeSmet Retirement Community we offer residential living and assisted living.

We offer a one level building, with multiple apartment options. Our community is smaller than the others in our area, which gives us the unique opportunity to have personal relationships with each of our residents.

DeSmet Retirement community is located in Historic Old Town Florissant. Our community provides our residents with the opportunity for social engagement and a sense of belonging. We strive to create an environment in our community that promotes healing, learning, and comfort.

We understand that the transition to a new home can be challenging, and we strive to make the process easier with our friendly staff, ongoing activities and special events, social settings, and our beautiful and comfortable community.
