Our Gardenview community was designed specifically for those with memory impairments. Special design features include overhead lighting that prevent shadows on the floor, “memory” shelves outside each resident’s room, and a bright open space for community life programs. Gardenview staff gets to know each resident as an individual, promote person centered care through individual care plans and individualized community life programs. The Converse Home Gardenview staff strives to provide excellent care in a safe, joyful and home environment.

“Gardenview is a wonderful place to work because the rewards come from so many places. The challenges of working with residents who have dementia calls on a person’s creativity in communication, development of a caring touch, and a sharing of life’s experiences all mixed with nursing skills…Being able to bring any degree of comfort to our residents just simply warms my heart.”
