About Us

Who We Are

Estrella Gardens is where compassion meets innovation in the realm of residential assisted living. With our roots dating back to 2018, we envisioned creating a network of homes, not facilities, where the elderly could live their golden years with dignity, comfort, and joy.

Our co-founders, Kathy Knudson and Thomas J Baddeley, blend their profound expertise in nursing and construction, respectively, to manifest this vision. Their relentless commitment and interdisciplinary knowledge gave rise to exceptional assisted living communities that set a new benchmark in elderly care.

As proud operators of multiple residential communities, we are deeply committed to nurturing an environment that respects individuality, promotes well-being, and fosters engagement. Each of our communities is a testament to our dedication and a vibrant ecosystem where residents thrive.

But at Estrella Gardens, our mission goes beyond our own properties. As seasoned consultants, we assist aspiring owners in launching and operating their own successful residential assisted living homes. We provide comprehensive guidance, ranging from property acquisition and floor planning to care standards and day-to-day operations.

Join us on our journey as we continue to elevate the standard of assisted living through our thriving communities and empower others to do the same.

What Is Assisted Living?

Family-Style Assisted Living homes represent a unique model of senior care that harmoniously blends daily assistance, personal care, and a cozy, home-like environment. These private, single-family residences are purpose-built to cater to the everyday needs of the elderly, ensuring they age gracefully and comfortably.

A Family-Style Assisted Living home is more than just a residence – it’s a thriving community of up to ten residents, based on the house’s size and local or state regulations. These communities provide a choice of private or shared rooms, allowing one or two residents per room. This arrangement offers an intimate, family-like setting, making Family-Style Assisted Living homes an ideal place for seniors to age in place until their passing.

In terms of caregiving, a Family-Style Assisted Living home offers round-the-clock care. Typically, one or two caregivers are present during the day, maintaining a caregiver-to-resident ratio of 1:5. At night, there’s usually one caregiver available, with a ratio of 1:10. This structure ensures personalized attention and care for each resident at all times.

As for the financial aspect, rooms in a Family-Style Assisted Living home are contracted monthly. The inclusive cost ranges from $3,000 to $12,000, depending on the level of care required and local economic considerations. Thus,  Family-Style Assisted Living homes offer an economically viable solution, combined with superior care, in a home-like environment.

Family style assisted-living is a totally new concept in assisted living. Mom & Dad now have the option to live in a “Residential” style Assisted Living Home that is family friendly, affordable, and most of all … easy to transition to, because it feels and looks like a home, not a place where it feels like they will spend the rest of their life in a Hospital.
