Q: What are Garden Homes?

A: Garden Homes are specially designed independent living homes for residents who want the freedom to come and go, but desire the amenities that accompany living in a specially designed community. Rosegate, one of several Garden Home locations operated by American Senior Communities, provides maintenance-free living with a variety of floor plan options that may include one or two bedrooms, sun-rooms, dens, laundry rooms and full kitchens. Other amenities may include attached garages.


Q: How does a Garden Home differ from a condominium?

A: Garden Homes are leased. Residents enjoy the company of their neighbors and opportunities to participate in a wide range of planned social activities. The community provides scheduled transportation to shopping, restaurants and appointments. Other conveniences that are often available at American Senior Communities Garden Homes are restaurant-style dining, a salon, wellness programs and housekeeping services. All of these amenities, combined with a state-of-the-art, 24-hour on-site response system, create care-free independent living with the freedom, comfort and security of living in a senior community.


Q: Are pets allowed?  

A: Many people can’t imagine life without their pets.  The mere presence of pets has proven to lower blood pressure and cholesterol and increase recovery rates from heart attacks. Pets, especially dogs, also help encourage residents to exercise because they prod their owners into walks. American Senior Communities Garden Home locations are all pet friendly.


Q: What if assistance is needed?

A: American Senior Communities locations with Garden Homes are on campuses that provide a continuum of services.  If assistance with activities of daily living becomes necessary, the resident may remain in their Garden Home and contract with a home healthcare aide, or the resident can move into an assisted living apartment on the campus. If additional care is needed, nursing care is available on-site. This continuum of services allows residents the peace of mind knowing that assistance and nursing care are always available.
