I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My aunt is living at Garden Estates of Temple. She has been there for a little over a month now. The rooms are nice. My aunt likes the food. Everyone is very friendly and outgoing. They help my aunt with medicines, but the rest she does on her own. They do the laundry for the residents, which is an included service. They have a bus that takes them to different places and out shopping. They have game nights, different parties, and movie nights. They also have lots of speakers for churches that come in.

My mother has lived at Garden Estates for four years and has been so happy with her community of friends! She loves being involved with lots of activities at GE: Bingo, Card games, Dominoes, resident outings, and Arts and Crafts. We no longer have to worry about mom being lonely and she enjoys 3 great meals each day! Tons of services are available for her: Church Services, Hair Salon, Exercise classes, Entertainment, Transportation to appointments, Group Outings, Home Health care, etc. The directors and staff are fantastic and I feel they truly care for their residents. Garden Estates has been a huge blessing to my mom and her family!!
