Aster Gardens Newsletter August

August 6th, 2021

Our beautiful community has been open for just over four months! With the lifting of some restrictions, family and friends can join residents in the dining room and pub. This is what Aster Gardens is all about and what we have been patiently waiting so long for…gathering safely and enjoying each other's company.

I am told time and time again how much Aster Gardens feels like home, from the friendly people to the intentional design and engaging activities we have created. Let us welcome YOU home!
