Independent Living Communities enable residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. You have a close network of nearby family, friends, and neighbors. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. Housing arrangements for the future can be a stressful, anxiety-provoking topic for you and your family. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. A nursing home may be a good choice if you need a higher level of care temporarily after a hospitalization, but itís anticipated you will be able to return to home or another facility after a period of time. A place in a retirement home can be paid for on a rental basis, like an apartment, or can be bought in perpetuity on the same basis as a condominium.

Over the past seven and one half years the Gilmore Gardens staff have provided a safe, comfortable, non "nursing home" environment for my 97-year-old mother. She enjoys her own suite with familiar belongings and I have peace of mind knowing she is well cared for. The many amenities available have made daily living something to look forward to and I believe the best in Richmond for both of us.

My mother has been a resident of Gilmore for about 18 months now, and I also know several other residents. I've always been impressed with the excellent quality of the staff, which I think is unequaled in our community, with respect to their care and service of the residents. They genuinely care about my mom and have demonstrated that devotion constantly, but never more than when my mom was in hospital for about 7 weeks in early 2013. When she returned to Gilmore Gardens, she was hesitant and worried about her transition; the staff were so warm and welcoming, with hugs and exclamations of joy to see her back - it was really the best cure for her concerns and such a relief for me. I have no hesitation in recommending the facility for any family that wants to see their beloved parent or grandparent in a comfortable environment, safe & well looked after.

My parents have lived in Gilmore Gardens for over 2 years now. They absolutely love it and I am so happy that they chose to live there. The staff is unbelievable, all of them. The food is delicious and there is always quite a selection. Their suite is lovely. My parents have made some wonderful new friends and enjoy many of the activities. As the only relative that lives nearby, I feel quite comfortable going on vacations, etc, knowing that if any emergency occurred, the staff at Gilmore Gardens would take care of everything. It gives our whole family peace of mind knowing that someone is available to help 24 hours a day. I would highly recommend Gilmore Gardens.
