When it comes specifically to senior nursing care and rehabilitation, the needs of each individual are unique. Each resident requires a unique commitment from staff members to help them find passion, quality, and fulfillment from life despite what time has taken from them.

The common areas are cozy and inviting, including a see-through fireplace in the lobby, widescreen television, and plenty of space for visiting.

“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.”

-Ann Conn, 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.

Memory Support and Services

The challenges facing residents with Alzheimer’s and Dementia were taken in to consideration when designing memory and supportive services at McGregor. The intimate atmosphere and home-like surroundings create a pleasant, calm and serene environment to minimize confusion. Calming music and horticultural therapy by trained professionals are part of the everyday activities. 

Staff receives ongoing training in the care of the dementia resident. Because each resident is an individual, care plans are customized to fit the whole person, providing meaningful engagement that adds purpose and choice for residents.

Activities are structured throughout the day, and designed to capture the interest of residents and fulfill a purpose. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of these special residents while promoting their independence and individuality, minimal distractions, reduced noise levels and a sense of community.
