Each of our retirement communities, Empress Gardens, Princess Gardens,
Royal Gardens and
Canterbury Gardens offer a full range of services and amenities—and the highest standards of Care. Depending upon your interests and needs, we offer the following lifestyle options:
Traditional Independent Retirement
If independence is most important to you, consider our Traditional "Independent Retirement" option. Independent Retirement is the perfect choice for those who don't want the hassles of housekeeping, cutting lawns and or clearing snow, but do want the security and luxury of having tasty, nutritious meals prepared for them by caring, attentive staff. Relax in our beautiful, spacious Atriums and fireside lounges or join in the activities. Have your hair done in
the on-site beauty salon or have a relaxing tea in the comfortable tea rooms. The choices are endless—and the choice is yours. Take a look in our Programs and Services section to see all that is available. And take a peek at our Amenities section to see what our facilities have to offer.
For extra independence and security, consider our innovative "Garden Homes". Garden Homes offer additional privacy and special features in cottage-style attached bungalows. Enjoy the pleasure of your own home with access to the luxuries, services, and security of the main building. Ideal for couples,
our Garden Homes offer a unique lifestyle that no other retirement
community can match.
"Enriched Care®" Assisted Living
Independence doesn't have to mean doing everything for yourself. The Gardens of Peterborough understands that there are times when individuals may need some additional assistance to maintain their lifestyle and independence. Whether you are returning from a hospital stay or you could simply benefit from some daily assistance, The Gardens' professional staff can provide you with the services you need through our "Enriched Care®" Assisted Living program. This program provides supplementary
nursing care to those who require assistance with daily living activities. We can provide assistance
with medication administration, bathing and dressing.
This helping hand can be temporary or permanent in nature, depending upon your needs. The Gardens of Peterborough is committed to encouraging residents to continue enjoying
their lifestyle in their community, even if their health care needs increase. That's why each of our retirement communities offers a full range of Care options so that friends, routines, tastes and care-providers don't need to change if
your circumstances do. At The Gardens, if your needs change your address doesn't have to.
