Residents of The Gardens live in private apartment homes that they decorate to their own taste, with their own personal belongings. A variety of activities are planned every day for their choosing. And, because of the services they receive – housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, meals and more – they can have more independence than living alone. Each suite is equipped with a monitored call system that provides 24-hour-a-day assistance in the event of an emergency.
The Gardens’ professional staff includes licensed nurses who supervise the care on every shift. Personal care services are designed for those who need some help with dressing, bathing or other activities.
