River Garden Senior Services (Jacksonville, FL):
River Garden Reaches 25 Year Mandarin Milestone


It is difficult to imagine that 25 years has passed since River Garden Hebrew Home for the Aged relocated from its original 3-acre site on Stockton Street in Riverside to its new home on the beautiful, 37-acre Mandarin River Garden Senior Services campus.

In just one day, December 10th, 1989, staff, board members and more than 300 volunteers assisted the 167 Stockton Street residents move, with all their belongings, to the new Mandarin facility. By 3:13 PM an announcement came over the PA system that everyone was now "at home" in their new residence. At the time of the move, it was reported to be the largest relocation of nursing home residents anywhere in the nation.
