Letter from the Chief Operating Officer and Administrator
Dear Future Resident,
Rebuilding Senior Living was the goal when construction of Memorial Gables began in August of 1999. This dream became reality when the facility opened its doors on April 1, 2001. Serving the Union County residents and surrounding residential communities, Memorial Gables offers 24-hour nursing care in a "catered" environment designed with neighborhoods specialized to meet many different levels of care. Skilled, Intermediate and Dementia Care are offered in three separate neighborhoods with Hospice and Respite Care available in all three.
Should you be coming to reside at Memorial Gables long-term, you will find many special events featured daily. You can enjoy strolls in the nearby park or facility courtyards, feeding the ducks gathered on the nearby pond and visiting with children that regularly take part in our intergenerational programs.
If your plan calls for short-term rehabilitation or a respite from your normal routine, you will find our skilled neighborhood to feel much like a hotel. We offer in-room service for those unable to enjoy our finely decorated and fully serviced dining rooms, equipped with ornamental fireplaces and hardwood floors for your comfort.
Among all the amenities offered in our state-of-the-art facility, the staff that will serve you are the facility's secret treasure, for it is their heart for caring that makes you feel at home. We look forward to serving you.
Chief Operating Officer and Administrator
Letter from the Medical Director for Memorial Gables
Dear Families, and Potential Memorial Gables Residents,
I am incredibly pleased and excited to serve as Medical Director at Memorial Gables. It is my goal to continue the high quality of care which the entire staff here strives to provide to you or your loved one. As the son of a family physician, my love of medicine was nurtured from a very early age while growing up in Maryland. During my medical training, I saw the inequity in care, compassion, time, and medical resources devoted to our elder population. Wanting to change that, I completed a Fellowship in Geriatrics and joined a medical group specializing in skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and long-term care. My main focus in caring for my older adults is to preserve, if not improve, their quality of life; and to maintain their dignity and independence as much as possible. Frailty and aging is an ever-growing challenge in our current society, as we have larger numbers of adults living much longer than ever before. It feels like an unexplored frontier, and can be equally anxiety provoking for the friends and family who want them to remain as safe as possible.
The staff at Memorial Gables and I are dedicated to helping you and/or your family member navigate this stage of life in the most respectful and dignified way possible.
Amit Bhojraj MD, CMD
Memorial Gables Medical Director
(Pronounced Bow-j-raj...or Dr. B!)
