Gardens on Tenth celebrates 60 years of seniors housing and support
In 1959, leaders from several Altona area churches got together with the idea of providing seniors housing and care in the community. Three years later, the Ebenezer Home for the Aged opened.
60 years later, that mission is going strong under the still-church-led umbrella of The Gardens on Tenth organization. What initially consisted of one building with 44 suites has now grown to include a campus of four buildings consisting of a total of 117 suites.
In The Gardens, the newest of the facilities, all tenants live independently (with or without Home Care), and most participate in a meal program and all have access to a range of on-site services. In The Manor, all tenants live independently (with or without Home Care), and have easy access to a range of on-site services. Tenants in The Units live independently (with or without Home Care), and have access to a limited range of on-site services.
