The Senior University at Santa Teresita is a campus-wide program that is incorporates various education and learning opportunities for our residents. These unique opportunities to provide a continuum of lifelong educational programs to our residents. Our pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the world around us does not decrease as we age. As seniors, the educational paradigm is still important, one of learning and enjoying the world to which they have contributed throughout their lives by their presence and work.
The Senior University education experience is a positive learning opportunity to continue to foster and nurture seniors’ pursuit of knowledge. Whether it is attendance at the monthly lecture series or participating in the Brain Fitness classes or one-on-one instruction sessions, the Sisters and staff at Santa Teresita strive to provide enriching opportunities for the residents at the Manor Skilled Nursing, Bethany Residential Care, and the Good Shepherd Cottage Assisted Living.
