Mom (94) stayed at Teresa House essentially 2021 thru now. My sister, my brother and I reminded ourselves everyday how thankful we were about placing her there, especially after a very poor (4-month) experience of being placed in another (much larger) assisted living facility, that we had screened ourselves two years prior and thought was fine at that time! Little did we know it had changed management during the interim. After she moved into Teresa house, the three of us had each constantly asked Mom how she liked it there, especially after the debacle with the other facility. Her answer had consistently been, "Well there's no place like home... but this has been the next best thing!" For our mother to lay that sort of praise on anybody is practically unheard of!! So, we three are grateful for all the efforts Teresa House and its staff made to get her to finally "think she was home"!! We would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Teresa’s House was truly a gift in the final stage of my father-in-law’s life, as he spent his last days in the comfort of the advanced care building/staff. By the time we found this amazing place we had experienced many hospitals, recovery and assisted living facilities. None compared to the beautiful, inviting and peaceful environment that Teresa’s house and their people provided in combination with excellent, detailed care. From the time we first toured the facility to the day we departed, they treated us like family and helped every step of the way. The facility, staff and quality of care were outstanding. We are so grateful for the time that we got to share with my father-in-law at Teresa’s House, where we all felt at home.

Teresa’s House is phenomenal! My MIL is a new resident and she is treated as though she is family. We all are! The staff is friendly and very experienced in memory care and we couldn’t ask for a better home for her. Most importantly SHE is happy here at Teresa’s House. Thank you all for making this transition a little easier.

My mother, Susan Carter, was at Teresa's house from Nov. of 2020 until she recently passed away. The care that she was given there was absolutely exceptional! The staff are always so friendly and did everything they could to make her time there comfortable and happy. She was treating with such dignity and respect and love and compassion. I cannot thank the staff for everything that they did for my mother. They were always cheerful and gracious and very understanding. They were also very responsive to my sister and myself, answered all of our questions, and helped us get through the last two years of her life. I would highly recommend Teresa's House to anyone seeking a warm, caring and loving place for their parent. Thank you Teresa's House for everything that you have done!

My mother Carol was one of Teresa’s House’s first residents.  We were excited about moving her into Assisted Living and all of the great programming and social life she would enjoy.  She even did a tour during construction and was looking forward to moving in. Shortly before she could move in, she fell at home and had a concussion that made her dementia worse and she ended up needing Memory Care.  I was so thankful that Teresa’s House offered this option because mom spent the majority of her almost two years at Teresa’s House in Memory Care.  She would still come to some activities in Assisted Living but was a mainstay in Memory Care and continued her lifelong love of all things crafts and art.  I still think of the many wonderful staff that cared for her. As mom’s health declined, she needed Advanced Care and again, I was so thankful that Teresa’s House offered it.  In Advanced Care we experienced another group of truly kind and caring staff who made sure mom was well cared for and all her needs met. Throughout it all, Co-owner Teresa (for whom the community is named) was there for us again and again helping us through the challenges that inevitably come up.  We were so grateful for her, her knowledge, and her compassion. Teresas’s House in truly a home not a facility and the caregivers go above and beyond everyday. These are good people and I would recommend them to anyone for the care of your loved one.

And so much more…

Simply put, the hallmarks of Teresa’s House are laughter, engagement and the familiar comforts of home, supported by true professionals.  Visit and experience for yourself why Teresa’s House is truly exceptional!
