Baby boomers are coming of age, and as a result the senior population is growing rapidly. So much so, that by 2030, seniors are projected to represent nearly 20 percent of the population. The face of seniors is also changing, and the demographic today represents a very diverse group with many embracing retirement as a time to fully enjoy life and continue going, growing, and learning. 


Recognizing that aging is different for everyone, The Gardens Assisted and Independent Living, part of Bethesda Senior Living Communities, focuses not only on meeting the needs of today’s seniors, but also on exceeding their expectations. Offering freedom from the responsibility, maintenance and upkeep of a home, the campus boasts a 55+ community of Independent Living Condominiums, as well as Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care apartments. 


The different levels of care provides residents with peace of mind, and allows The Gardens to customize their services to what each resident needs rather than trying to fit the resident into a plan that is not specifically tailored to them. That stays true to the Bethesda approach, and has brought in a diverse group of seniors to call The Gardens home. 


For Regional Director Andrew McCormick, it isn’t just about who they serve, but how they serve them. “I tell my team that what we are doing at The Gardens is what every other senior living community is doing in Springfield. It’s not what we do that makes us different from our competitors, it’s how we do it.”


“We do everything with a servant’s heart,” McCormick added. “Our goal is to not only provide great service, but to do it in such a way that it enriches the lives of our residents.”


Recently completing a remodeling project, the apartments at The Gardens have been transformed into a beautiful modern space for residents. And with a continued focus on providing excellence in their core service areas, The Gardens looks and feels like home to a wide variety of seniors. From those wanting to downsize to those who might need a little help with medication management or personal care, The Gardens provides a continuum of care and McCormick’s staff is standing by to help residents make the most of their retirement years.  


“Our goal is to be the best place for seniors who need our services to live, while also being the best place to work for people who have the talent to provide those services,” McCormick concluded. “It is our belief that resident and employee satisfaction go hand-in-hand. We are all one big family here, and each resident and employee is responsible and credited with making The Gardens the best place in Springfield to live and work.”
