Providing the elderly with the highest quality continuum of services to enhance their physical, spiritual and emotional well being is the mission of Teresian House. Our modern facility is one of the finest in the area we serve, but it is the love that each of our staff members brings 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 visitors 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.
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. Nursing care is provided 24-hours-a-day.
Medical care is under the guidance of our Medical Director and nursing staff. Medical and staff consultant specialists are available. One-on-one physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy programs are tailored to the specific needs of each resident. Transportation service is provided for off-site medical appointments and treatment.
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.
