Wellspring Gardens seeks to provide a wide variety of activities that enrich our residents’ spiritual, social, intellectual, and recreational lives. As individuals join our community, we find ways for them to continue their favorite hobbies and interests or to explore new avenues of enjoyment and growth.

Often our residents are people with claims of limitations that they are seeking to overcome. We work closely with these individuals and their families to provide them with the educational, work, and social and recreational activities that will help them achieve the spiritual awareness of wholeness.

Anonymous • Quote of the Day


A typical week at Wellspring Gardens overflows with action and activity! Time and time again, we discover that healing and progress results when we actively engage with and help others, instead of dwelling on the seeming challenge to be overcome.
