Good morning from Tuscan Gardens. A quick note this morning to let you know that everyone is safe and sound. By some small miracle, we never lost power in Venice. Our staff was amazing and truly showed their leadership and abilities with Hurricane Irma. We just wanted to get the word out that all is good! The entire team at Tuscan Gardens is so very grateful.

UPDATES ON IRMA

Posted: Sept. 6th 2017 / 1:00PM EDT

We are currently tracking Hurricane Irma and planning appropriate action to ensure the safety of our residents as the storm approaches the U.S.

As Hurricane Irma approaches Florida, we want to keep you up to date on our plans here at Tuscan Gardens® of Venetia Bay.  We are in constant contact with our local FEMA contact, City of Venice officials and ACHA in order to track this storm and follow the necessary guidelines to keep our residents and dedicated staff out of harm’s way.  While our newly constructed community was built under the latest hurricane guidelines constructed for a Category 3 hurricane and sits twelve feet above sea level, we do not take lightly the strength of mother nature and are taking the highest precautions.

Our residents have the option of sheltering-in-place at Tuscan Gardens or leaving with their local families who may be traveling out of the area entirely.  We are coordinating this effort now and asking for your plan of action so we can note this immediately.  If you are planning to take your loved one out of the Community during this weather event, please notify us immediately at (941) 244 4288. We will be reaching out to all families to expedite this communication effort.

For those staying in place with us at Tuscan Gardens, we are preparing for the storm and have planned accordingly to be with our residents.

In an effort to increase communication knowing that while we have a generator, we may lose power, we might be able to provide ongoing updates at:
