I would recommend.

I would recommend The Gardens. I don't think there are any better options in the area. We have had no problems there. The room size layout of the community is good. They have a large outdoor patio for residents to use.

After 3 months I still love it here. No cooking, no cleaning, no maintenance, no property taxes, etc.

I have been very happy here. The food is great. Every month there is a Menu Meeting where you can discuss likes, dislikes, things you would like to see. Place looks and smells great at all times. Our apartment is cleaned once a week with "deep cleanings" twice a year. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice not to worry if there's a drip in the kitchen faucet...just call Maintenance. Phoenix provides nursing type care if needed for an extra cost which I think is very reasonable. Lots of activities. The facility has an indoor swimming pool as well as a pool table. There is a movie theater room with theater seats and sound system. In fact there is too much to mention it all. Including rides to the local Symphony when they are playing. Includes rides to/from doctor appointments. Bus trips to local stores. It is a bit pricey to live here but if you make use of everything that is offered it's a good deal.

More than pleased!

It's been wonderful, they are wonderful there and very helpful. My loved one's apartment is comfortable and maintained well. They're very sweet about watching out for him and communicating with us as well as getting back to us. He has friends that he has meals and the neighbors keep an eye out for him for us. What we liked the most about The Gardens was that they have continuing care.
