Thank you so much for your loving and compassionate care of my mother (Jean) over the past two + years. I can not say how grateful we have been to have her live in a place that is so positive and home like. But it is the amazing care and activities and programs that clearly made my mother both happy and comfortable in her final years. While I still worried about her, it wasn’t because of her care! Such an amazing environment. Thank you and bless you for everything you have done for my mother.
Thank you for always taking such good care of our Grandpa. He clearly loved everyone there and enjoyed being in such a beautiful home at Kensington.
You continue to amaze us with your gestures of kindness, hospitality, and enthusiasm. Thank you for the warm welcome to the Kensington Gardens family.
Thank you so much for your loving care of mom over this past year. She couldn’t have been in better hands.
Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the love and care that you and and your caretakers provided our mom for the last 18 months. You all became our family too.
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all you do for my dad. The day to day care and so much more. Coordinating appointments, planning outings, and inviting my dad’s friends for lunch. But the greatest gift by far is my peace of mind that he is well cared for so I can focus on my other responsibilities. You are a wonderful team.

As owner Kelly Watson watched her young children play and enjoy the idyllic beauty of London’s Kensington Gardens, she was inspired to bring that same European artistry of English Gardens home to Gig Harbor, Washington.
