I visited this facility
This place is a dump. My mother was placed here by the trustee of her estate. When I visited from CA for a week, I never saw a nurse or a doctor. I stood at the filthy dirty nurse's station for over 30 minutes waiting for a nurse to no avail. The residents who were around the nursing station in their wheelchairs told me that this was normal. They were around the nursing station because no one had taken them back to their room after their meal in the dining room.
My mother was in a wing that had maybe had residents in 5 rooms. One day, I turned all the lights on in each room that did not have a resident. You could hear the bell going off at the nursing station. Then finally someone just disconnected the bell, but the red lights were still lit above the room.
Unless you go every day to visit, your loved one will never receive the care they are humanely entitle to. My mother eventually succumbed to blood poison because of a bed sore never attended to. The bed sore was black by the time the trustee learned of it.

We chose The Gardens of Richardson for my in-laws. It felt very warm and comfortable when I went in. The marketing people took all the time and answered every question and gave me a very thorough tour including the dining room. We walked through the gardens. We walked and talked about the apartments that I went into. She spent extensive time explaining a lot of things and the apartment were extremely clean and neat. It has been remodeled at some point and the colors were comfortable colors. They were new and it was just a very nice, comfortable, and homey atmosphere. I felt she would be comfortable there.

With all the communities here on Arapaho Road in West Richardson...many have choices. However, The Gardens is the only Skilled Nursing community that can transition your family member up to The Arbors [our memory care neighborhood].

The Gardens of Richardson is a stalwart assisted living and nursing home facility. They have recently opened a memory unit. The turnover rate among caregivers is very low compared to other facilities. The caregivers are a special, loving group of men and women who have the residents' best interests and comfort at heart.
My mother was on the assisted living floor for nearly 2 years before she had to be moved upstairs to the nursing home floor. The upstairs caregivers were always aware of her needs and interests. This included getting her "boyfriend" from downstairs up to see her daily.
The Gardens has many activities for the residents' health and amusement -- exercise, movies, church services, pet visits, games, and even "happy hour" on Fridays with snacks and live music.
My husband has dementia. He was only 62 when he was diagnosed, but it has progress tremendously over the last two years. The only place I would consider placing him is at the Gardens of Richardson. Hopefully, though, that will be a long time away. I am so confident of the care that he would receive, that I would have trouble considering anywhere else.

Both of my parents are at The Gardens of Richardson. They are both happy and I sleep better knowing that they are loved and well cared for. I highly recommend the Gardens for anyone looking in the Richardson area!
