opened in 1999. Since then, we have cared for hundreds of older adults who were in that 'gray area' - those not needing skilled nursing care, but in need of

a safe, supportive home.

Residents make their studio-style apartment their own, by furnishing it with their own familiar belongings. Their own bed, a favorite chair, cherished photos and collections.

Our apartments have a kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator/freezer and kitchen-style cabinets and sink. The handicapped equipped bathrooms with a walk-in shower foster your independence, but staff is always available to assist you with your activities
of daily living as needed.


The Carmelite Sisters have served in the Columbus Diocese continuously since 1947. Our Carmelite Shield



ALL our 50 rooms are STUDIO APARTMENTS

 Our name says it all - our Mission and Passion is for dignified, loving care
of God's children who have come to their senior years.
We have twenty one facilities throughout the United States,
and one in Dublin, Ireland.
We've been doing this since 1929, and for almost 70 years here in Columbus.
The motto of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm is:


 plays an important part here at the Villas.
It's not just a word or a slogan.
Backed by  ,
love is the force that motivates all that we do
 in our  service and care for our Residents.

"Where there is no honor to the elderly, there is no future for the young."
                                                                                                                                                Pope Francis ~ From his Homily in March 2015


 "Unless we use all our to make the last years of our old people -

the 'golden years' - meaningful,

they could spend many lonely hours and years before God calls them to their eternal award.

Ours is a VERY special vocation, and we will be blessed eternally

 for the little things we did to bring happiness to the old people.

By a spirit of love and dedication in our work, we will receive countless blessings."

                                                                                   Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, O.Carm.

 At the Villas, our loving staff takes these words of

Mother Angeline to heart, and puts them into practice!

Is cooking, housekeeping, laundry and

 house repair/upkeep getting too much for you?


Are your children voicing their fears of you being alone?

Are they coming over several times a day to help you -

or are they too far away to come help?


Do you need a bit of help
with a shower, or getting those shoes on now?


Are you afraid of being alone?


Do you have a loved one living alone

that you constantly worry about?


Perhaps  it's time you look into Assisted Living!



It doesn't hurt to call  and ask questions about the Villas,

or Assisted Living in general!

Pets (under 30 pounds) are allowed under certain circumstances.

We have served in Columbus since 1947!! We operated St Raphael's Home for the Aged on Roxbury Road,

and St Rita's Nursing Home on Greenlawn Avenue until 2005. We closed them that year due to the inability to bring the old buildings up to code - and combined the two into a new facility on East Broad Street -

Mother Angeline McCrory Manor! The Manor IS on the same campus as the Villas.
