Vicinia Gardens Intermediate Care
At Vicinia Gardens, it is our mission to provide high-quality care with all the comforts of home. Our intermediate care facilities (ICF) are designed to provide specialized care and programs for individuals suffering from early- to mid-stage dementia in the least restrictive manner possible. In Intermediate Care, seniors who are not entirely independent receive the support they need to be able to engage in their own routines, including comfortable amenities and personalized around-the-clock care.
We are an intermediate care, memory care, assisted living, and independent living community. We always put our residents’ comfort and safety first. Visit our Intermediate Care facility in Fenton, Michigan to see what your loved one’s home away from home could look like!
