CARMELITE SISTERS FOR THE AGED AND INFIRM
In 1929, Mother Angeline Teresa founded the Roman Catholic Religious Congregation known as the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. Mother Angeline’s vision of providing compassionate care for the elderly in a home-like atmosphere has become a reality in the homes sponsored by the Carmelite Sisters.
The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm first came to West Palm Beach in 1960, initially sponsoring two facilities that provided long-term and seasonal housing for the elderly. In order to meet the changing needs of the elderly, the facilities were rebuilt to include the current Lourdes-Noreen McKeen Retirement Community. The Carmelite Sisters’ commitment to excellence and dedication to caring for the elderly in South Florida is renowned.
Hospitality is among the core values exemplified by Mother Angeline. Our belief is that each facility should provide the environment and atmosphere of “Home”. Personal warmth, love and care will reflect and give value and purpose to our residents’ lives. The Spirit of Hospitality is also a social grace that inspires a generous heart to reach out with compassion to others.
