Orange County’s Quaker Gardens Senior Living Renames to Rowntree Gardens


Contact: Jason Sherman, Sherman Communications and Marketing

Nearly a half-century since its founding in 1965, Quaker Gardens Senior Living has been renamed Rowntree Gardens.

The 335-resident community, is one of Orange County’s only licensed, nonprofit, continuing care retirement communities. Rowntree Gardens is retooling nearly everything from its branding to its structures to its menus to its offerings.

In late 2013, Rowntree Gardens launched an extensive review to identify what changes would be necessary to flourish during the next 50 years. That review encompassed its internal and external audience perceptions and needs, services, physical infrastructure, brand promise and relevance.

“This is a very exciting and dynamic time at Rowntree Gardens,” explained Chief Executive Office and Board Chair Randy Brown. “We’re here to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people through all seasons of life with compassionate and skilled care. We hope everything we do brings to life our vision statement, ‘To be a daily blessing to all we encounter.’”
