A garden in the home stretch

Print Article

As ideal gathering places go, old folks homes arenít top of mind even for the most imaginative.

But Garden Plaza ainít your typical old folks home, either.

The Post Falls property has blown up the gutwrenching, heartbreaking model of sanitized, lobotomized shelters for people headed down the home stretch of their personal marathons. Garden Plaza ensures that for its lucky residents, the final leg has a chance to be among the best, not just the last.

The doors are actually open to us all. Itís no accident that you can run into the Post Falls Rotary Club one day at Garden Plaza, River City Leadership another time, then hear an outstanding speaker in the Post Falls Chamberís excellent CEO Series. And thatís just in the arena of civic engagement.

As NIBJ writer Judd Wilsonís story illustrates in this issue, Garden Plaza is home not just to several hundred senior citizens, with more knocking at the door, but itís evolved into a cultural center for the entire region. Take it from a guy whoís done the chicken dinner circuit for nearly four decades: Garden Plazaís food is good enough to compete with many restaurants. And their business model is even better because theyíve incorporated real compassion with standards of excellence that are hard to match.

Kootenai County is a great place to call home.

For the past decade, Garden Plaza has made it even better.
