Abe’s Garden at Home

Nashville’s In-Home Care & Engagement Provider

Everyone has different needs as they age. That’s why Abe’s Garden at Home has a customized approach to in-home care and engagement for Nashville-area seniors who need a little support to remain independent at home.

A Unique Approach

Our at-home care partners receive special training that helps them uncover each person’s unique needs, abilities and interests. Once they understand needs, they create personalized opportunities designed to enhance the quality of life through support with self-care tasks and mind and body wellness activities … all while providing respite for family caregivers.

With a goal of helping families remain in the place they most want to be – at home – Abe’s Garden at Home assists older adults with engagement, activities of daily living, and so much more.

  • Bathing and dressing
  • Personal hygiene and dental care
  • Light housekeeping and laundry
  • Mobility/transfer support
  • Shopping, medical appointments and errands
  • Medication reminders
  • Meal preparation
  • Supervision
  • And more!

Mind-Body Wellness Support

Abe’s Garden at Home also offers participants and families training, tools and services that focus on keeping both minds and bodies active. From reading to exercise to art and puzzles, our experienced home engagement coordinators help boost daily engagement by providing personalized activities based on a person’s interests and abilities.

Road Trips

There’s nothing like a trip to a Nashville museum, music venue or restaurant to boost the spirit and engage the mind. So, our engagement coordinators also provide support outside of the home. Whether it’s accompanying families on outings or taking a participant on a nature walk or to visit a favorite local establishment, we are available to help plan or arrange an outing. This not only engages the participants but also provides family caregivers with much-appreciated downtime to relax or accomplish non-caregiving tasks.

Safety Assessment and Recommendations

As part of the new-participant process, a team member will conduct an in-home evaluation, which includes recommendations for modifications that may help increase the environment’s safety and prolong the participant’s ability to remain at home.
