I am a friend or relative of a resident

Everything's fine at The Gardens. I put my uncle there because it's close to where I live. It seems like in a nice, decent area of town. The rooms were decent-sized and big enough for my uncle. He has the room by himself, has his own bathroom, refrigerator, and it has adequate ventilation. I thought it was nice. Most of the staff are very helpful, attentive, and courteous. The food seemed pretty good, too. I've eaten there a number of times. They also had quite a few activities like sing-alongs, news in the mornings, mass for the Catholics on Saturdays, and bingo or movies a couple of times a week. However, maybe they could have a little bit of variety of food at times and to make the food not so big portions. Most seniors don't eat that much. My uncle also complained a little bit about they had too much pasta, not enough potatoes or not enough rice. The place was also small and only assisted living. They didn't have any dementia care or nursing home. They were in a separate building on another side of the street.

I visited this facility

There is not too much that I can say about this particular facility. Upon visiting there was nothing that made me want to move right in, but in some ways it did have its charm. The friendly on site staff (which are there 24 hours) was comforting in case there was any problems if I were to stay there. On top of the on site staff, they did seem well trained. The things I did like were that if I were to stay there then I would have something like a custom living arrangement. The Price was affordable, and there were many amenities that were physically helpful. All in all the place is nice, but I would like to continue looking.

Here at The Gardens, we encourage residents to give us ideas about their recreational interests because this is their home and we want to add to their comfort and enjoyment. Our recreation program is filled with many interesting and varied activities from which to choose. Each week, residents enjoy coffee socials, exercise classes, Bingo, card games, challenging word games, painting classes and Wii games on our big-screen TV.

We take out-trips to interesting places, such as local museums, plays, restaurants, seasonal sight-seeing tours, ice cream shops and in the summertime, we go to the City Center for different shows. We enjoy doing crafts, baking and gardening, and twice a month we have a non-denominational Bible Study.

To welcome new residents to our community, we have a monthly Welcome Tea Social. We also enjoy hearing suggestions from residents and their family members for additional recreational programming which can then be incorporated into our calendar. We are always open to new ideas!
