Kensington Gardens
LIFE 2.5 - Life With A Little something Extra...



Kensington BusA luxury 14-passenger bus treats our residents to frequent sightseeing tours and waterfront restaurant outings throughout the beautiful Puget Sound region.  Our newly aquired 45' Carver Yacht allows for spectacular outings on the water. Because every staff member takes a genuine, personal interest in the lives of each resident, we’re delighted to accommodate unique interests and hobbies.  For example, the avid reader will find herself amply supplied with library books or audio narratives.  And the angler will undoubtedly find a fishing pole and salt water tackle on his seasonal agenda.  Few care facilities are equipped to make that kind of personal investment in their residents.  For us, it is a calling, a privilege.

Live fully.  Smile often.
- Kelly Watson

Fine Dining

For years Kensington Gardens took great pride in the gourmet cuisine we served our wedding guests, and that has certainly not changed.  For us, sharing great food prepared with fresh ingredients remains an essential platform to care for and celebrate others.  We serve three delicious meals daily, as well as assorted snacks and beverages—all tailored to residents’ dietary needs and personal preferences.  Original dinner selections include savory apple cider pork chops and mango shrimp skewers which are certain to nourish both appetite and soul.  And there’s no shortage of friends or fond memories around our family dining table.

Custom Care

Award winning Kensington Gardens offers a wide array of nursing care options, all tailored to your loved one’s needs.  Our own Registered Nurse on staff assesses the medical requirements of new residents and serves as a consultant in their care.  When skilled nursing is necessary, we work with a gifted team of care partners to meet your medical needs.

Our commitment to providing compassionate Continuing Care through End of Life also offers tremendous peace of mind for our residents and their families.

Grounds & Gardens

Watching squirrels frolic in the idyllic beauty of London’s Kensington Gardens with her young children inspired Kelly Watson to bring that same European artistry and magic home to Gig Harbor, Washington.  Sculptured hedges and topiaries, lush manicured lawns, and flowering plants and trees adorn the property’s 23-acre grounds.  Serpentine pathways wind around graceful, multi-tiered fountains and fragrant, ornamental flowerbeds.  For Kelly and her husband, the exquisite formal gardens frame the very essence of this labor of love called Kensington Gardens Estate Living Retirement Communtiy:

When tended the right way, beauty multiplies.
- Shannon Wiersbitzky, What Flowers Remember
