The decision to move into a senior living community is not always an easy one to make. Sometimes the decision has to be made on behalf of your loved one for their own safety. However, what may begin with hesitation can end up being one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

It is understandable why your loved one may resist leaving the home they knew to live in an environment that is unfamiliar. However, we know that there are many pros to living in a senior living community, from safety to a sense of community to new friendships.

Through reviews from our residents and their loved ones, learn more about life at The Gardens at Eastside.


Sometimes it is no longer safe for your loved one to live alone at home. Maybe the upkeep is too much or the home isn’t “aging-ready.” Maybe you’ve noticed signs of decline like missed medications and scorched pans. When this happens, a move into a senior living community is important for their safety and well-being.

Knowing your loved one is safe and cared for is a tremendous relief for many family members and we are grateful for reviews like this one, “The Gardens at Eastside is an excellent place for our loved one. They make everyday living a fun, hospitable, safe, and loving environment. Everything is well thought out for the maximum well being of the residents. Our loved one is so happy here and we are so grateful for the great care received.”


Senior living communities help build a sense of community. Our trained staff keeps residents engaged and maintains deep connections through shared interests and stories. Our community is modern and updated with cozy corners for reading, gardens, and dining rooms where residents eat together.

Patty Cripps shared this heartwarming review, “My Dad passed away last year and my mom was so depressed she needed to change her environment. My daughter and I stumbled upon The Gardens. We had a Zoom meeting/tour and we both felt comfortable with making a change for mom. After speaking to Kelly and the others, I felt this was going to be a good fit. The day she moved in, she was very nervous but the best part and I will never forget this…as she got out of the car Kelly was there and said welcome home and gave her a big well needed hug. Thank you!”


When thinking of a senior living community, some may remember visiting their grandparents in a nursing home. From pools and game rooms to libraries and cocktail lounges, this is not your great-grandma’s senior living.

The way we look at senior living has evolved and seniors are staying active now more than ever. In addition to modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation.

We love receiving reviews like this one, “The staff at The Gardens are very caring, have great activities to engage the residents, makes certain medical and salon services convenient for residents and family and our family highly recommends The Gardens at Eastside for our mother. We looked at several assisted living communities in our area and talked to many people who had been there or had family members that had been there and not one person had any negative thing to say about The Gardens.”


Seniors can be affected the most when it comes to isolation, especially while dealing with an ongoing pandemic. Due to increased isolation, seniors are reevaluating their living arrangements.

Senior living communities help seniors maintain and develop new relationships through common interests and a planned activities calendar. We love when we receive comments like this one from Cynthia Carter, “The Gardens may be an assisted living community but it’s so much more, too. Residents are active, frequently smile, and participate in meaningful activities. I’m so thankful that my mom lives at The Gardens.”

There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
