Our Community

Constructed in 1991, Melville Gardens is located on the Melville Ridge Retirement Campus and offers both residential care and nursing care. 

The residential care units in Melville Gardens are an ideal place to live for someone who wishes to maintain as much of their independence as possible, but may require some supervision or assistance to perform their activities of daily living. Those who live in the Level 2 Nursing section of Melville Gardens require full-time assistance and supervision when performing their daily activities. 

Residents of Melville Gardens are engaged and involved with their neighbors as they take part in the daily activities of the recreation program. Residents can enjoy an on-site hair salon and faith services, as well as a fenced in outdoor space with beautiful walking paths and raised garden beds. Healthy meals and snacks are prepared on-site and are enjoyed in the beautifully decorated dining area.
