About Us


Little Flower Manor, owned and operated by the Diocese of Scranton, has been providing the full range of long term care, skilled nursing services to those in need for over forty years. Little Flower Manor was formally dedicated on November 24th, 1974 and opened with pride on January 20th, 1975. During this time period the Bishop of Scranton requested the assistance of the Carmelite sisters of the Aged and Infirm to help establish the new ministry in Wilkes-Barre and the Sisters responded in the affirmative.

The Carmelites have provided administration, aid to the residents and families, mission support and an array of staff functions over the years. Today, the Carmelite Sisters continue to remain active in their support of the mission by living and working on campus.


Residents are welcomed with compassion, respect, and dignity while given the care and assistance they need to enable them to maintain their independence and individuality as fully as possible. Every need and convenience is provided including an assortment of activities, programs, and therapies to partake in. We strive to remain a leader in resident care.

An empathetic, knowledgeable staff driven by mission-based values are what make Little Flower Manor and St. Therese Residence a leading skilled-nursing facility in the Wilkes-Barre area. Please feel free to call us at 570-823-6131 for more information or to arrange a tour of the facilities.
