About the Cottages

The Good Shepherd and Cristo Rey Cottages at Santa Teresita are licensed to provide care for our cherished elders who may need assistance with activities of daily living.  Our Carmelite Sisters, and professional staff provide 24-hour care with a commitment of respect toward all stages of human life and an atmosphere where residents are loved for who they are.  Our two-story, over 20,000 square foot assisted living accommodations at Good Shepherd and Cristo Rey Cottages feature warm, gracious common areas: kitchen (where input in meal planning counts!), dining area, living room, den, outside patios, BBQ, and inviting walkways through the gardens.  Living spaces are private and include personal bathrooms and if desired, some floor plans offer the option of shared accommodations.  With an attentiveness to personal needs and a dedication to providing for spiritual and relational needs of our residents, in addition to their physical care, we strive to provide the most home like and supportive environment possible to help our residents thrive during their golden years.
