Mother Teresa Health Center was opened in June 2018 due to the high needs of the Albanian community South of Boston for assistance with medical and social services, when language barriers had made it very difficult to benefit from all the services offered to them.

The Idea

Our parents came to this country at an advanced age which combined with language barriers made it impossible for them to integrate in the completely unknown and new environment. They are very dependent upon us and require our assistance in their activities of daily life, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, administering medications and social life. Quite often we had to work with reduced hours and take unpaid leave to support them with their medical and social needs. When we brought up the idea of having an Adult Day Care Center where they could have an active social life under medical supervision they were very enthusiastic and supportive.

A community setting for elderly and disabled patients

Mother Teresa Health Center offers a community setting for elderly and disabled patients whose medical conditions requires nursing supervision and/or rehabilitative therapy, and the help of people who understand the unique perspective of our Eastern European residents. We help our members maintain their independence and vitality, while they take an active part in their community, and we support our members, enabling them to continue living in their homes. Mother Teresa Health Center also offers other services such as health, social, and nutritional care as well as an organized program of nursing services, supervision, maintenance, therapy and socialization.

Our mission

Mother Teresa Health Center’s mission is to provide a program of social, recreational and medical services in a group setting that offers participants the opportunity to socialize and enjoy peer support:

  • Provides social and medical services in a stimulating environment that promotes better physical and mental health
  • Offers respite to families and other caregivers who have responsibility for an older adult who cannot be left alone during the day and yet does not require 24-hour nursing care
  • Helps functionally impaired adults, who live alone and need supportive services to improve or maintain their level of independence
  • Specializes in meeting the needs unique to the Eastern European population of Massachusetts
