Our History


Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, O. Carm

We are women who share a vision that love makes a difference in the world. Our story is tied to the story of every man and woman at the autumn of life – their joys and sorrows, their pains and consolations, their love of family, their hopes and dreams, their search for God and their finding Him. Our life is about holding the hand of an aged person and giving meaning to their lives.


This is the rich tradition of our journey from the beginning that we travel in the spirit of our Foundress, Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, O. Carm., who founded the congregation of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm in New York City in 1929. Her desire was to preserve the independence and personal dignity of the elderly in the spirit of the American way of life.


Today we continue to travel in this tradition and spirit, strengthening the vision and mission of our Foundress’ legacy to find our place in the provision of senior care as it unfolds to us in the world. We are prepared to focus on the changing needs of our residents and the vision and mission that is entrusted to our care and carried out by each of us. Each staff member – professionals working alongside our sisters – is guided by our values. Each staff member understands that residents who come to Carmel Terrace Assisted Living Residence, live an independent lifestyle and experience our “difference” through our staff’s daily actions.


Located in Framingham, Massachusetts, we proudly offer senior living, assisted living, and independent living to all communities including Ashland, Holliston, Millis, Natick, Newton, Sudbury, Wellesley, Marlborough, Wellesley Hills, Needham, Waltham, Weston, and Wayland.
