“The Coves at River Garden: Going where there is no path and leaving a trail. A History of The Coves - From Dream to Reality” By John J. Donnangelo This is a story of The Coves at River Garden, which is located in Jacksonville, Florida. The River Garden mission is: • To provide a wide range of quality, cost effective elder care services in residential, outpatient and community based settings. • To create a comfortable, caring and dignified Home for the frail elderly serving both rich and poor with excellence. • To serve people of all faiths, while maintaining an environment supportive of Jewish identity and informed by Jewish values. • To act as a valuable educational resource in elder care for the entire community. The Coves at River Garden is the independent living area of the Campus. Residents live “on their own” in private apartments, with elder care services readily available at the main building. On January 27, 2018 The Coves celebrated its 23rd Anniversary.
