About Us


Teresian House strives to provide the elderly with the highest quality continuum of services to enhance their physical, spiritual and emotional well-being.

As a faith-based organization sponsored by the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese and served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, our commitment is fully the residents we serve. Teresian House strives to be a beacon of Catholic health care to the community we serve and to all those whose lives we touch. It will proclaim the value of life and the beauty and dignity of old age and will strive to maintain a leadership role in the shaping and delivery of services and programs of care for the elderly.


Teresian House was incorporated in 1971 under the laws of the State of New York with the cooperation of the New York State Housing Finance Agency. Served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, it is sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany. The Facility opened May 1, 1974 and was formally dedicated on October 20, 1974.
