Teresian House is located in Albany, NY and has been the hallmark of elder care since 1974. Teresian House is sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany and served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. The mission of Teresian House is to pro-vide the elderly with the highest quality continuum of services to enhance their physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. Our modern facility is one of the finest in the area we serve, but it is the love that each of our staff members bring to our residents and their families that gives life to our mission.
You can see it in the faces of the residents as they interact with their care givers. First-time visitor’s remark on the warmth they feel on entering the lobby, the inviting home-like atmosphere in resident rooms and in the neighborhood dining rooms on each floor. Resident-Centered Care emphasizes small neighborhoods within our facility to create a feeling of comfort and security. Each neighborhood has its own cohesive team focusing on individual resident preferences and abilities. The program is especially effective in maintaining the dignity and autonomy of each resident as an essential part of care giving.
The spiritual needs of each resident are a primary concern at Teresian House. Daily Mass and religious services are provided in our Infant of Prague Chapel. Teresian House offers each resident a private room and bath, and the opportunity to pursue individual interests in a warm, nurturing, community environment monitored by a dedicated staff. Teresian House Center for Elderly embraces the Philosophy of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm in a Roman Catholic setting. Our belief is that each person is special and unique and is worthy of respect and dignity in all stages of life.
