Assisted Living

at Garden Creek

While all of our retirement living residents enjoy engaged, active lives some require a little more help with life’s day-to-day details. Assisted living at Garden Creek provides residents help with those little things so they can spend more time enjoying life.

Whether it's help with cooking, housekeeping, coordinating medication, keeping up with doctor's appointments or just getting around, The Village at Garden Creek provides a wide range of assisted living services for its retirement living residents.

The Villages’ wellness team thoughtfully provides the enhanced services needed for its assisted living residents to thrive as independently and stress-free as possible. It is our commitment to treat our residents with the respect and dignity they deserve.

This community was designed and built with the needs of our residents in mind. The apartments and hallways are all centered around a stately courtyard to assure there is a focal point for movement. Elevators at each side of the building ensure easy access to every residence.
