Garrow Villa Assisted Living
Good old-fashioned, home-town care
Garrow Villa strives to be the “home away from home.”
When the elderly can no longer live on their own, switching to living in a residential facility is a really difficult transition. Change is scary, and no one wants to give up their independence. At Garrow Villa, we encourage our folks to retain as much independence as they can for as long as possible; we are compassionate to our residents’ needs, and if something changes and a resident needs adjusted care, we are right there with you. We pride ourselves on our excellent and caring staff that treats our residents like their neighbors, friends, and family.
To sum it up...
Garrow Villa is a Community Based Residential Facility (Class C). Garrow Villa is licensed to serve ambulatory, non-ambulatory, advanced aging, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and end of life care clients, with a licensed bed maximum capacity for twenty (20) residents.
Garrow Villa is intended to primarily serve the frail elderly, residents with Alzheimer’s/Dementia, and end of life care. This facility has eighteen private rooms, meaning we are allowed to accommodate couples.

Why Choose Us?
Our commitment to serving seniors and their families comes from a very personal place. We have a deep empathy for the journey families take when a loved one is stricken with Alzheimer’s, dementia, a terminal illness, or just day to day struggles with caring for themselves. Making the move to an assisted living facility is a big change, and it can be very scary for a lot of folks.
That is why at Garrow Villa, our goal is to provide you with good ol’ fashioned, home-town care: where our staff treats our residents like their neighbors, friends, and family. We foster a homey environment, a community, and we welcome you to become a part of it.
We don’t want you to see this as the end of your journey, but the beginning of a new chapter in your life. Our facility is not a nursing home; we are an assisted living facility, and we encourage our residents to maintain the most amount of independence as they are able for as long as possible. We want you to have a fulfilling life here.
