For seniors who are seeking an independent retirement living community in the Cleveland, Ohio area, McGregor offers a remarkable quality of life. It also affords senior residents mental stimulation, beautiful surroundings and the peace of mind of knowing that assisted living support is at their immediate disposal. Courtyard Gardens

Our retirement living community residents enjoy security, luxury and truly individualized care. We are blessed to be staffed with a truly caring team of professional nursing home and assisted living team members. We also take great pride in being able to offer our senior residents retirement living apartments that are nestled amid resplendent gardens, magnificent courtyards, and stunning views of Cleveland’s Lake Erie. In fact, our retirement living community encompasses an historic, 32-acre private estate, affording seniors privacy and breath-taking views from every direction.

For more than a century, McGregor has met the changing retirement and independent living needs of seniors. Today living longer means offering different levels of assisted living and nursing home care, services and amenities. Our comprehensive suite of senior living services is designed to meet the needs of today’s dynamic retiree population.

The vision for “The Gardens” retirement living community originated with the merger of Amasa Stone House and The A.M. McGregor Home in 1987. Together, we joined forces to form a new not-for-profit corporation, keeping the McGregor name. Construction started in October 2001 on our beautiful Cleveland grounds and continued until February 2004. At that time, the staff and residents of the two legacy facilities moved in and a new way of senior independent living in Ohio was born.

“We designed the Gardens to provide the best possible care to our residents, to attract and retain committed staff and to serve as a source of pride to our community.” -- Rob Hilton, President and CEO

Recovery Made Easier at The Gardens

The history of The Gardens dates back to one of Cleveland’s first private rest homes, the Home for Aged Women, The Amasa Stone House endowed in 1877.

Tootie McGregor, established The A.M. McGregor home in 1904 to honor her late husband Ambrose, a close associate of John D. Rockefeller. The vision of The Gardens originated with the merger of these two fine institutions. Construction started in 2001 and continued until February 2004 when the staff and residents of the two legacy facilities moved in.

In our Rehab Unit you will be greeted by a team of caring professionals who will design a plan of care to help the resident recover to their fullest potential, so they will be able to return home safely. Our rooms are private and include a spacious powder room, garden or campus view, a cable ready television and a phone.

We designed the Gardens to provide the best possible care to our residents, to attract and retain committed staff and to serve as a source of pride to our community. Residents are supported by McGregor’s team of caring professionals. It gives us great pleasure knowing that tending to small details make such a big difference in resident’s lives.  

Low staff turnover is a testament to personal satisfaction and fulfillment.
