At Gateway Gardens, a compassionate assisted living facility, the health and overall well-being of our residents is priority.  Programs, services and care are adjusted as the needs and daily activities of each resident change.  Gateway Gardens offers peace of mind by helping families recognize and understand the changing care needs of your aging loved ones.  Our facility is part of the larger Gateway complex, and is located near commercial centers.  Besides the services and amenities listed on the "Details Tab" of our profile we have additional opportunities to attend a local religious service, enjoy live entertainment, our library and game rooms.  For your family's special events the private dining room is the perfect venue. 

We offer studio apartments and one-bedroom units.  Both studio and one-bedrooms can be private rooms, while the 1-bedroom can also accommodate a married couple.  Additionally we have three levels of care, depending on the pre-admission assessments, and resident needs.  And for individuals recovering from a hospital stay, or for a family needing to have their loved one cared for while they go on vacation, we offer short-term respite care at $175/day.
