Aspirus Country Gardens celebrates 20 years

MEDFORD, Wis. Country Gardens, Aspirus Medford Hospital’s residential care apartment complex (RCAC), officially opened to the Medford community 20 years ago. All the staff and tenants of the RCAC community came together for a brief celebration outside on Monday, June 22.

“Staff and tenants had to get creative in our celebration efforts due to COVID-19.,” said Samantha Dyre, manager of Country Gardens. ‘We’re planning on a more interactive celebration with our tenants’ family and friends once visitor restrictions are lifted.”

Located behind Aspirus Medford Hospital at 635 Cedar Street, Country Gardens has 28 all-inclusive apartment units each featuring a kitchenette, living area, sleeping area and private bath. Each unit is designed to offer tenants an opportunity to maintain an active, independent lifestyle while also providing them with support for daily living and social activities.

“Many people don’t realize we have amenities such as a whirlpool tub, a beauty and barber shop and a library,” Dyre said.

One of Country Gardens’ longest-residing tenants, Elinora, said the atmosphere is “positive, and the staff are so nice.”

Other Aspirus adult living and care facilities in Medford include Aspirus Care & Rehab and Aspirus Cedar Lane Assisted Living Apartments.
