When I first conceptualized Tuscan Gardens several years ago, it was a personal mission. After my father passed away, I moved my mother close to our home in Winter Park, Florida, where she thrived for a number of years — until she didn’t. At that point, I brought in a caregiver. Our family would visit her on weekends, but her friends, one-by-one, passed away or were too fragile to visit. Her vibrant community of friends had disappeared. When I looked around for a place where Mom could live, share and enjoy social company, I was simply unable to find a place that didn’t leave me sad. I asked myself the question: “What it would have to look like for Mom to be happy there?” Little did I know, that simple question would redefine my life. A year later, I founded Tuscan Gardens Senior Living. Since then, I’ve had the honor of serving thousands of seniors in our communities and employing wonderful associates who are as dedicated as we are to creating a life of purpose, passion and joy for our residents. I would like to invite you into our world to experience what we call the Tuscan Gardens difference.
