From Assisted Living to Adult Day Care and More, We’re Here for You

While holidays, birthdays and anniversaries can be wonderful times for families to gather and share memories, they can also be a time when family members see loved ones who are aging and perhaps not being as physically or mentally as fit as they used to be. Sometimes this realization is more obvious to those who don’t live nearby and don’t see an aging relative very often.

When visiting during the holidays or at family celebrations, if you observe a decline in physical health or mobility, a sense of loneliness, possible mental confusion or difficulty managing medications with one of your friends or family members, The Gardens can help provide the direction and assistance you need.

The Bainum family, founders and owners of The Gardens and the adjacent independent living community, The Woodlands, has 60 years of experience in senior healthcare and is one of the most respected leaders in the senior care and senior housing industry in the Virginia – Washington DC area.
