An Update from Teresian Towers and Carmel Ridge

Teresian Towers and Carmel Ridge is an independent senior living community, owned and managed by the Diocese of Bridgeport.  Located on the grounds of St. Joseph’s Center in Trumbull, residents age 60 and older enjoy the convenience, privacy, and peace of mind knowing maintenance is taken care of.

In addition, this unique community allows residents to attend daily Mass at the chapel on-site, within the same building as Teresian Towers.  The Dining Room at St. Joseph’s is also available to residents, as is their Salon, Manor Mart, Lounge, and activities such as BINGO and live music.

Weekly trips to the grocery store are provided, as well as many social activities such as monthly birthday and special occasion parties, games, speakers, and occasionally a craft event.  Residents have implemented some of their own activities as well such as a lunch club and gathering for Pinnacle or Rummikub.  Management will also resume occasional local outings for shopping, ice cream, the movie theater and the like.

Teresian Towers consists of 48 apartment homes, 20 one-bedroom units and 28 studio units. Carmel Ridge is comprised of 36 one and two-bedroom cottage-style homes, each with a bath and a half, an attached garage and patio.

All units in Teresian Towers and Carmel Ridge are for rent only.  A one year lease is offered initially, then becomes a month-to-month lease after the first year of residency.  This community is a market-rate community and is not subsidized.  St. Joseph’s Center is not owned by the Diocese, they are owned by Genesis Health Care.
