When people look at a retirement community, they should ideally find a place that takes the coziness of a home environment and combines that with the level of care they need now. They should feel immediately comfortable when they walk in the door the first time. That's what we see in Metcalfe Gardens, a great example of refined elegance brought to St. Thomas. This hominess is seen on the surface, in the creation of cozy spaces spread throughout the community, but extends right through to the roomy, inviting suites. And comfort is also very apparent in the way staff interacts with residents, and vice versa.

And then again, this is much more than a home. There is a complete life to be lived within the walls of Metcalfe Gardens. There are communal activities such as lunches with varied guests, like local artists and more. You can go to church right in the community chapel. And there's live entertainment in the downstairs' lounge.

Friendliness and warmth are hallmarks of life at Metcalfe Gardens. This begins with the staff, whose focus is on meeting residents' needs, but this filters throughout the community, and beyond. Camaraderie is seen among community members, as a reflection of staff's attitudes. When elderly loved ones are happy and well-cared for, family members are happy and content with the choice they have made. This is what you find at Metcalfe Gardens in St. Thomas.
