    The place is great unless your loved one has dementia. My family member was having issues remembering to eat & I was advised that they will encourage her to eat & make sure she does. They did not, I'd go for dinner & was told she didn't feel like eating & would take her food away. They act like they care about the residents & get to know them but it is all about money with them. My loved one was unexpectedly was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer & I was constantly being reminding that Hospice could treat her at the facility. Meaning a Hospice caretaker would go there 2 hours a day with my loved one having 22 hours by themselves. I advised them I would be moving her a hospice facility against their opinion, again they see dollar signs. The contact person there that gives you her cell is very efficient with answering any texts & dealing with issues promptly but the day I moved out my loved & I was told she was going to visit my loved one even though they may not remember them, not 2 full days later my loved one passed. I messaged the contact at the Gardens to notify her & got no response. Solidifying the fact that they never cared about my loved one. They just wanted to money & to be a the facility under she passed. Well, even I was a heartless person & had one loved one there until they passed they still wouldn't have had any more rent cause she passed 2 days after moving her out. If your family member is self sufficient & you plan on keeping them at the resident until they pass, great place. After seeing how things transpired with my loved one getting diagnosed unexpectedly with cancer & being in extreme pain & their reluctance to having her discharged & to see the lack of care with her dementia while she lived there I would definitely not recommend this facility to anyone else. Unless their loved one doesn't need any "extra" care or pray hard that your loved one's diagnosis doesn't change cause they will not make it easy to move them out.

    Southern Gardens is retirement living with a touch of southern charm! Southern Gardens is an great retirement community located right downtown in Lake Alfred. I have had the pleasure of caring for many residents in the building, and the atmosphere is comforting, and very home like. The staff is very friendly, and they have a lot of retention with their employees. The residents are always doing something, and there is a lot of activity within the building. I would recommend Southern Gardens to anyone looking for a retirement community that has a home like feel, and personalized care. Great community!

    Southern Gardens is a gorgeous community. Very warm and cozy. They offer their residents an all inclusive lifestyle for the best rates ever! Amazing staff, everyone was so friendly. And the residents are active playing bingo, cards and they even have live music! They give free tours! A MUST see.
