WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police are investigating after a 65-year-old woman fell out of the window of an assisted living facility in West Hartford on Sunday night.  

An unidentified woman was pronounced dead after a fall at Saint Mary Home on Albany Avenue around 10:30 p.m. 

The woman, whose name is not being released by police, either fell or jumped out a fourth story window, according to investigators. The death is not suspicious and no foul play was involved, according to police.

Police could not comment on her condition before she fell.

St. Mary Home is part of the Mercy Community, which is an assisted living center. The facility cares for those who are aging.  Each building is a little different, either helping those with dementia, hospice care and adult day services. 

Police said they have not had any issues with the home prior to the incident. It had not been fined or denied payment in the last three years, according to records from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The facility has been given 5 out of 5 stars by the federal centers for Medicare and Medicaid services. The time nurses spend with patients is above the national average.

The state health department said it was checking on the home's history and safety procedures.

Frances Warde Towers Apartments are inside or part of the St. Mary Home, which has 97 apartments. They released a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

"We at The Frances Warde Towers Apartments, a residential care program in West Hartford, are saddened by the sudden loss of one of our residents on the evening of Sunday, November 29.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and to her family at this difficult time,” Christine M. Looby, director of community relations at Frances Warde Towers Apartments, said on Tuesday.
