Grand Opening of The Maples Assisted Living Facility in Fulton

Officials and guests at the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Maples Assisted Living Community in Fulton.

The Maples Assisted Living Community, a new locally owned and operated 89-bed assisted living residence in Fulton, held its ribbon cutting in April, marking a significant milestone for the community and its senior residents.

The five-year long project began in 2019 with outfitting being completed in early 2024. Owners and equity partners are Atom Avery of Avery Rental Properties in Oswego, and physician Micheal Stephens, a 20-year resident of Oswego and associate chief medical officer for
Oswego Health.

The Maples occupies the premises once held by Michaud Residential Health Services, a nonprofit nursing and short-stay rehabilitation facility that ceased operations in 2017.

It will feature private or semi-private rooms, a wellness center, barber/beauty salon, computer lab and Wi-Fi access, housekeeping and laundry, in room cable TV, central bathing and spa on each floor, and a movie theater. The Maples will employ about 40 staff when the facility is fully operational.
