– Majority of our patrons reside in the Diaspora but are concerned about the standard of care for their loved ones back home.
– Others have sought our services because they were dissatisfied with the quality of care provided to their aging parents in other “care homes”.
– Some solicit our services because the Carers they engaged to nurse their seniors exploited their vulnerability, subjecting them to verbal, physical, financial or psychological abuse.
– A significant proportion of our clients also seek our services as a means of preventing social isolation.
Our Home-based care involves the provision of comprehensive services, which include social, nursing and health services by formal and informal caregivers in a home setting in order to promote, restore and maintain a person’s maximal level of comfort, function and health.

- A major demographic transition is taking place as numbers of older persons are increasing considerably.
- People are living longer and they are increasingly exposed to longer periods of vulnerability and ill health in old age.
- Traditional family support is constantly being eroded by the shrinking size of modern families and the migration of adult children.
- Rapid urbanization and societal modernization has also brought in its wake a breakdown in family values resulting in social isolation and elderly abuses.
- Studies shows that per capital health expenditure of the elderly is higher than the per capita health expenditure of other age groups in Nigeria.
- Public social welfare and care services are poorly resourced and grossly inadequate for an increasing elderly population.
- Without access to available and affordable quality residential care homes, many aged people can expect decreased survival and their final days to be painful, humiliating and lonely.
At Rockgarden Homes, we do not seek to dismiss this feeling, but to reassure families in everything we do that the choice to let us take care of their family member is a loving, kind, and generous act.
It is a gross misconception to think those who pay others for the care of their loved ones are uncaring or unloving. On the contrary, they are willing to pay for the unique care we provide for seniors in our centre solely because they genuinely care, and want the very best for them. And that’s what we offer at Rockgarden Homes.
- Care of the acutely ill.
- Hospice care services.
- Palliative home care services.
- Care of patients with contagious diseases.
- Care of children, young adults or the middle aged.

- We have on-site ancillary services such as physiotherapy, while offering the safety and security of a 24-hour support and access to highly skilled nursing care.
- Hence we have established a facility that not only meets their medical and physical needs, but one that also nourishes their social connections, individual dignity, and personal preferences.

- You notice frequent bruises, although your parent may try to cover them up. This may be a sign of falling, mobility problems or ongoing elder abuse.
- Your parent wears the same clothes over and over again or neglects personal hygiene. This can indicate that doing laundry and bathing is physically challenging.
- Your parent forgets things, including doctor’s appointments and when to take medication. This may be due to memory loss.
- Your parent seems depressed. Depression is common in seniors who are isolated and alone.
