The care our mom has received during her
time at The Gardens has been exceptional.
All of the staff that attend to her daily needs
have been very friendly and professional. In
the ten years she has been a resident every
staff member we have had interaction with
has been compassionate and understanding.
I would recommend this facility to anyone
needing a place for their loved one.
I’ve worked her 15 years…the best part about
being employed at The Gardens at Tunkhannock
is being part of my local community and providing rehab for individuals who guided me through my life.
