Ashley Gardens of Mt. Vernon is a small assisted living and memory care community. Each cottage in the community is designed to comfortably house only eight or nine residents, providing ample opportunities for each senior to receive dedicated, personalized care from 24/7 nursing staff. Assisted living residents can choose between private and semiprivate accommodations that are either partly or fully furnished. Not only can residents benefit from 24-hour security and supervision, but housekeeping, linen, laundry and apartment maintenance is taken care of to promote a carefree lifestyle. Planned social and community activities include fitness classes, gardening, brainteasers, music appreciation, weekly entertainment and manicures. Three delicious meals are served family-style in a communal dining area, and snacks are available throughout the day. Further amenities include access to a beautician, barbershop, salon with whirlpool spa, computer room, libraries and card lounge.
What Residents are Saying:
Family members praise the caregivers, with one relative saying, "By far the best community when it comes to care. The care staff are very attentive and genuinely care. From doing the nails, curling the hair to dressing the ladies, so they look great when we come in. There was never a day I worry about my mom's care."
