Thanks again for all your hard work.” – Stephanie J.

“I have been interested in The Gardens for a number of years. I knew that at some point my mother, Marjorie, may need to move into an assisted living facility; and The Gardens would be the answer to that need. She suffered a fall in late summer 2015 which convinced the family that Mom could no longer live independently.  We were fortunate to work with Gardens Director Debbie McElroy who enabled my mother to enter The Gardens as resident and elder.  Since entering The Gardens in September of 2015, we have come to believe that this facility was exactly what my mother needed at this stage of her life. The Gardens staff and its facilities and programs meet her every need. My mother is so very contented, feels safe and cared for. She is very happy to be a resident at The Gardens. My family has worked with the staff of The Gardens since she became a resident and we have been very pleased with how her day-to-day needs and requirements are being addressed. Personally, I feel a profound peace of mind that my mother is now in the good hands of The Gardens’ leadership and staff.” – Larry R.

“Our dealings with The Gardens have been very uplifting for our elderly aunt and our family. From the moment we first made contact with Matt Thuman, we instantly knew we made the right choice. The welcoming, informative, compassionate and personal interactions with Matt, Connie and Debbie are a God send during a difficult time of transition and certainly eased our concerns about placing our aunt in AL. May God bless them and the entire staff in their continued efforts to make The Gardens at true home for those entrusted to their care. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” – Randy & Ann J. 

“Thank you to the staff of The Gardens for caring for Dad. He could be hard to get along with at times but I know he cared about all of you a lot. He talked about you all the time.”  – Dennis R. Family
