The Avila Institute of Gerontology offers education for those who provide care for the elderly especially those who work in long-term care. The educational programs we offer are rooted in the charism of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm. and the community she founded, the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm.
The Avila Institute especially focuses on four main topics: Dementia Care, Behavior Management, Spiritual Care and Palliative Care. These soon to be developed Focus Topic pages will feature these four subjects, providing free resources while highlighting programs, seminars, webinars and products that relate to each topic. We look forward to launching this section of our website later this year.
