Carmel Place (completed in 2001) has an activity center to foster wellness, activity and a sense of community among the residents. Mt. Carmel Place is in close proximity to the Breidenthal Youth and Family Service Center to allow cross -generational programming and senior involvement in community activities.

MCRC is presently in partnership with the local Weed & Seed group, and together we have built a “Senior Computer Café “. Residents enjoy learning basic computer skills from a trained instructor, who has developed a curriculum that is uniquely designed for senior learning. The program includes classes on: learning the mouse and keyboard, learning basic computer software, playing computer games, internet basics, using email printing, scanning, and more. Classes are held for one hour, once a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Classes are filled with seniors who had never turned on a computer before, but who now send emails to family and friends. Though many seniors initially feel intimidated by computers, this class offers them the opportunity to learn the cyber language of their children and grandchildren.
