About The Gardens Independent Living,Assisted Living, Respite Care and Memory Care

Inspired Care for retirement living

We are a service-oriented assisted living and memory care community in Springfield, Missouri. Our faith-based mission sets us apart from other competitors because we are able to invest in our residents.  Our unique person-centered approach shows in our meals, activities, tenured staff and the quality of life our residents experience. This faithful service gives seniors the freedom to make themselves at home in a warm, friendly atmosphere. That’s why people choose us: our mission of service and our intimate community.

Independent Living

Our Approach to Independent Living

Our independent living community is for active seniors looking for a maintenance-free lifestyle in Springfield, Missouri. As a service-oriented organization, hospitality is our highest priority. We welcome you into our community—and want you to enjoy the retirement you’d always dreamed of.

Our residents enjoy a vibrant, stimulating atmosphere where they can remain active, pursue their interests, and share the companionship of family, friends, and neighbors. We offer plenty of lifestyle amenities and services, including restaurant-style dining, an on-site chapel service, a 50's style diner, an indoor pool, recreational activities, and community outings.

Maintenance-Free Condominiums

Retirement should be about more than keeping up with the hassle of mowing the lawn and cleaning gutters. Our retirement condominiums are generally two-bedroom, two-bath with two-car garages, and range from 1,050 to 1,500 square feet. Our landscaping and building maintenance services mean you can spend your time with friends and enjoying life without the burdens of household upkeep.

Spacious Apartment Living

For seniors looking to downsize, our independent living community also offers one- or two-bedroom apartments ranging from 600 to 1,000 square feet, with spacious walk-in closets and kitchenettes. Carports are available for an additional fee. Residents enjoy the same maintenance-free lifestyle in a welcoming community where convenient living meets an active lifestyle.

Assisted Living

Our Approach To Assisted Living

Our assisted living services offer active seniors a home-like environment in Springfield, Missouri—while providing personalized care and assistance with normal daily activities. We offer supportive around-the-clock care in a cozy atmosphere, allowing our residents to thrive physically, socially and emotionally. Our assisted living services are all-inclusive, which means we don’t charge any additional level of care fees for our services.

Forming Meaningful Relationships

Physical care is a critical component of assisted living, but it’s our social lives that truly add meaning to our days. At The Gardens, our residents enjoy each other’s company. They eat together, enjoy group activities, and connect in a way that complements their physical care and keeps their minds sharp and their spirits young.

An Energizing Environment

In addition to our personal care services, we promote an active lifestyle by offering numerous social activities and fitness programs that maintain senior autonomy and quality of life. Our team serves as caregivers and advocates for seniors by providing an environment that allows our residents to thrive.

A Customized Care Plan

Upon arrival, our Health Services Director meets with new residents and families to develop a personal care plan, which includes an assessment of the resident’s physical and psychological needs. We review this plan and update it regularly or as needs progress.

Memory Care

Our Approach to Memory Care

The transition to memory care can be one of the most difficult decisions a family makes. Our compassionate team is committed to helping seniors not only get the physical care they need—but also enjoy the highest possible quality of life. Read more about our approach to memory care.

At The Gardens, our memory care services emphasize safety and quality of life. We provide around-the-clock care and supervision in a secure environment. We recognize each individual will be affected differently with memory loss, so we offer an individualized program in a stimulating atmosphere. Our memory care services are all-inclusive, which means we don’t charge additional level of care fees even as your needs increase.

Stimulating Environment

Our compassionate staff works with each resident and family to create an environment where residents can succeed and thrive while maintaining as much familiarity as possible. Small accomplishments, such as working on a memory book, baking, or even making a bed, can be highly therapeutic and encouraging.

Power of Pets, Music, & Scents

Walk into our Memory Care, and you may see a resident petting a dog or cat, enjoying the scent of flowers in our secure garden, or singing a familiar tune. Senses of touch, smell, and rhythm remain strong as memories fade. Our team members continually tap these senses to soothe and connect with residents.

Comfortable Living

Our private studios (with bath) are located in our friendly neighborhood setting. We also offer memory care companion suites that create meaningful social connection between residents, and create affordable access to high-quality care. It’s proven that residents with memory loss better maintain cognitive function, language skills, and a healthy routine with consistent social interaction.

Our community features a comfortable lounge, family-style dining and vibrant living spaces. The beautifully landscaped grounds provide a secure outdoor setting with continuous walking paths in a tranquil setting.

Respite Care

Our Approach to Respite Care

The Gardens’ short-term or respite care stays provide temporary care and housing in a furnished assisted living apartment. We offer caregivers a safe place for their loved ones while they are away for business or vacation—or just need a break from the physical demands, stress and challenges of caregiving.

All the Resources of Assisted Living

Respite care is ideal for individuals who want to try out our community without a long-term commitment—but who may want to transition to permanent assisted living. Our respite services are a great option for seniors recuperating from a recent hospital stay or illness who need temporary care from a qualified staff.
