Initially, many potential residents of The Gardens wonder about a loss of independence or a decrease in their quality of life. In most cases, this is because they have nothing to compare The Gardens to, except the nursing homes they have seen in the past. But in fact, The Gardens has much more in common with a modern apartment community than with a nursing home.
Residents of The Gardens live in private apartment homes that they decorate to their own taste, with their own personal belongings. They are free to plan their own activities every day, participating in a variety of organized group activities only when they choose to. And, because of the services they receive- housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, delicious meals and more- they can have more independence than living alone. It is a lifestyle that gives residents just the amount of help they need, without intruding on their privacy.
