“Everyone who is fortunate to live long enough, will have the blessing and the stress of caring for an elderly parent. There is no one right decision for the physical, emotional, social and mental care of a person who has devoted his/her life to us.
Not long after retiring from a high-profile, busy career, my mother was soon caring for her own mother, who lived to a wonderful age of 103. When my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and colon cancer, mother again stepped up to the plate and was a caregiver for him for ten more years, until his death. She lived a full and independent life until the age of 90, when a fall and broken hip began a series of medical and safety concerns that brought us to the decision that she would be safer and healthier in an assisted living facility.
For two years, we assisted and cared for her in her own home, but it slowly became evident that we weren’t able to provide all the help she needed. How blessed we are to live in a community where The Gardens of Paulding is available. It was tough, on her and all of us, to make the decision that she needed daily assistance in living. At The Gardens, mother has a private, comfortable, one-room apartment to call home, where she receives wonderful and thoughtful medical and daily living assistance.
It is a journey for mother and all of us who love her, but we all agree that she is in a happy home, where she is lovingly cared for. I visit or call almost every day and am so pleased with the number and variety of activities and experiences available to her and all of the residents. The medical staff take care of her medications and monitoring of vitals, as well as provide extra time and care, as when she got Influenza A over this past winter. The administration has been responsive and timely in responding to my questions or any concerns.
I feel blessed to have my 92-year-old mother in my life and that we both have The Gardens of Paulding for her to call home.” – Sue D.
“Everyone here is so nice, polite and kind. It is a very nice place and so very clean. I have stayed at two other facilities and this is the best. All the staff are like my family. I love to talk, and they always take time with me. You can always find someone to answer your questions.
I came here to try to be independent and to get myself as happy as I could be. I am on my way to both those goals in this wonderful setting.
I love all the different activities: the beautiful singing and worship services three times a week, the piano players and sing-alongs. It takes me back to memories when I was a young mother singing in the church with my four children.” – Betty Jo N.
“I have really liked all the new friends I’ve made and the friendly staff. I like the choice of food I have. And I like that they keep track of my appointments.”- Norma Jean B.
“I have really appreciated the care from the staff here at The Gardens of Paulding. And I really like the activities – especially playing BINGO. I also played Penny Pitch for the first time and I really had fun doing that. The building, the nurses and staff are all very good. I get the help I need. And I felt very accomplished being able to go to the dining room for meals and not falling. I would recommend The Gardens to someone needing skilled nursing or long-term care.”- Laura P.
“I’ve been very happy. They treat me great. I especially love my view from my window and all the birds I can see outside. Therapy is very helpful and has been very good for me with my disabilities. I would recommend The Gardens; if they are so good with me, they must be good with others.” – Irene W.

“I really liked my stay at The Gardens because I was not very far from home. Everything was clean – the food was good and delicious. The people were all very friendly. I would recommend The Gardens to my friends. I never had to wait for anything. I am sad to leave but ready to go back home. I will be back to visit. I am proud of this place.” – Marjorie W.
“I would like to thank the entire staff at The Gardens of Paulding for the wonderful care they provide to my Uncle Dave. He often tells me of the special things the staff does for him – from the good food, to the clean room to helping him get the movies that he loves.
When I visit The Gardens to take Dave on an outing or for a family visit, the nurses are so nice and very organized. What I notice the most is how the staff treats Dave with kindness and respect.
Thanks for making Dave feel like he is part of your family and making The Gardens a nice home for him. I hope you know what a difference you make in the lives of the people you care for.” – Ronda L.

“Thanks to a staff that was not only faithful in their duties, but loved my Dad despite his dementia and behaviors. You honored and respected him.” – Christine F.
“I was admitted to The Gardens in August 2017. I wasn’t ready to go home when my insurance cut my therapy. So I moved into an assisted living suite and continued my therapy as an outpatient. Since it was winter, my husband decided to move in with me until I was ready to go home. Every one was so kind – we were very happy. We are now ready to go home.” – Mary N.
“I got ill in August of 2017. I went to see Dr. Kuhn and he diagnosed me with diabetes and an infection in my right foot. He informed me that my great toe may need to be removed. My surgery was set for September 5th 2017. During surgery, the surgeon found my lower leg would need to be amputated entirely.
After four months at Park View Nursing Center I came to The Gardens of Paulding. At The Gardens, I received wound care and therapy. Nurse Ann Munger was an incredible nurse. My would was healed in two months.
My therapy team was outstanding. I was put on their amputee program that helped me focus on standing, balancing with walker support, increasing my body strength, as well as performing my own self-care and waking independently.
I had a home evaluation performed before my discharge, which made me feel more comfortable going home. With the help of Sarah Stevens in social services, I will be having home health nursing and therapy come to my house through local community services and have everything set up at home that I need for independent living.
The team at The Gardens worked very hard to make sure my insurance allowed me to get the care I needed for as long as possible. They worked weekly to send in updates and new goals to get approval for my continued care.
My overall experience was wonderful. The staff is caring and so helpful. I would recommend my family and friends to come here if they every needed additional care.” – Roland K.
“I’ve been in for over a week. They put me through therapy more than I thought they would. It was good for me. I needed it! The therapists knew what they were doing. I’m happy with the nursing care. I haven’t had a problem with the aides, they were all here when I needed or wanted something. Overall, it’s been a pretty positive experience.” – Paul R.
“Everyone is just as nice as can be. The staff is very friendly along with all the workers. I was very pleased with everything. I feel that my goal has been met by therapy. It has been good for me and made me stronger.” – Evelyn G.
“This is a great place to be, not home, but the next best thing.” – Inella F.
“I have been here for 7 years and made many friends and they are like my family. I am very comfortable here.” – Gayle S.
“From the first day my dad went to The Gardens, Sue took the time to sit down with me and explain all the services available from nursing care, food planning, laundry, even haircuts. The staff even had meals available for my mom. The nursing staff and aides were all friendly and helpful. Also, any concern I had about medications or blood work, they made sure I had an answer. The Director of Nursing, Val, kept me up to date on medical concerns and truly seemed interested in my dad’s care.
Therapy was given two to three times a day and was challenging, but attainable. The therapists were highly skilled and again, truly concerned about my dad’s progress.” – Arthur S.
“My parents spent their last remaining months at The Gardens of Paulding. I was always kept informed of any changes in their condition. The nursing staff always talked with me about their problems and helped me to understand what was happening to them. Every staff member who came in contact with them treated them with respect and I could tell they cared about my parents and wanted to help as much as they could.
Between my brothers and I, we were there almost every day for seven months. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the excellent care our parents received.” – Mary H.
