I have a friend that lived there. And she received great care and the staff was very helpful. was very pleased with what I saw. This is definitely a place I would refer to a friend.
My mother lived at Ashley Gardens for about two years until a few months ago. Ashley Gardens is by far the best community when it comes to care. The care staff are very attentive and genuinely care. From doing the nails, curling the hair to dressing the ladies, so they look great when we come in. There was never a day I worry about my mom's care. I highly recommend Ashley Gardens.
My father was in Ashley Gardens for 63 months. He passed away April 2018. My mother and I are forever grateful to the amazing staff at Ashley Gardens, from Helen to all of the daily staffers including Racquel in the kitchen who gave excellent care and concern for my father his entire time he was there. Katie and the various staffers over 5 years have the utmost of respect and gratitude from my mother and I. We recommend Ashley Gardens to anyone looking for a new home with dementia issues.
