Gardenside welcomes visitors and has no set visiting hours. Family and friends are encouraged to visit as often as they are able. We do ask for consideration of other residents’ schedules and privacy. The main Jefferson Community Health & Life entrance is open from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Friday and from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Please use the Outpatient/Emergency entrance if you need to enter the building after the main lobby doors are locked for the night. You will need to pick up the phone to ring a nurse to unlock the interior door.
You may also use the entrance on Gardenside’s west wing. This door is usually open from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. There is a doorbell at this entrance which can be used from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am.
You may want to share a meal, an activity, entertainment or special occasions here at Gardenside. Residents, if able, may go for rides or activities with family members outside of Gardenside. Please check with the nursing staff about making these arrangements.
Visitors are also welcome to join residents for meals. There is a per-meal charge. Guest meals are $5 per meal or $10 for holiday meals (tax included). To make planning easier, please notify the charge nurse a day or two in advance (three days for large groups) if you will be joining us for a meal. Please pay for guest meals in the cafeteria.
