About Rockgarden Homes

Rockgarden Homes

We have created a loving environment for aging seniors, where longevity is flavoured with an excellent quality of life. Located in a cosy estate in Ikorodu, Lagos, Rockgarden homes provides world-class, skilled, and compassionate care for the elderly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Secure in the use of ever-evolving best evidence-based principles, and a respect for the heritage and culture of each resident, we take care very seriously and have learnt that what every elder desires is:

i) To be treated with the utmost respect
ii) To be actively engaged in a community of peers and like minds
iii) To be very involved in his/her own treatment and daily decision- making.
iv) To be cared for by a well-oilled team of skilled, compassionate clinicians and caregivers who maintain high levels of professional integrity, and passion for the elderly.

Rockgarden Homes

Our Story

Rockgarden Homes was conceived in 2007 when Dr Fadugbagbe was in the United Kingdom. The Homes was established in 2015 by Dr and Mrs A.O Fadugbagbe following a rigorous accreditation process by the Government, with the long-term vision of having a safe haven for, and happy community of Seniors enjoying a well-earned, relaxed retirement.

Rockgarden Homes is situated on an estate spanning several acres, and comprising 40 en-suite rooms and 20 shared living rooms in units of two-bedroom flats.

Just One hour away from the Lagos capital city, Ikeja, the location was carefully selected for its relaxing ambience; cool, breezy mornings and evenings perfect for a leisurely walk, or for reminiscence of glorious youth, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Our Vision

Rockgarden Homes
Rockgarden Homes

To be the quintessential home where privileged senior citizens spend their days of frailty in gladness and comfort.

In today’s highly mobile and globally-integrated world, caring for an elderly loved one is a beautiful, but sometimes incredibly difficult task that exacts its toll on family members, especially when combined with differing schedule of other commitments.

Relatives, sometimes, despite wanting the very best for their aged parents or loved ones, lack the requisite knowledge, skill, or time required for their elderly relatives.

At other times, Family members desire a break to recuperate, or to attend to other equally demanding responsibilities with their hearts fully assured that the standard and quality of care for their parent s will not drop.

House-helps and caregivers employed to assist and support aged parents can sometimes be a menace, and even more challenging to handle than the elderly themselves.

It is this gap that Rockgarden homes fills. We intend to maximise the quality of attention and care each of our beloved seniors receive, while providing respite for the overwhelmed family members.

For families permanently resident abroad, we are a much-needed source of assurance and succour.

The quality of care we render reflects the dignity and worth of every senior entrusted to our care, and through teamwork, compassion and respect, we provide the highest quality of Senior care

Rockgarden Homes

Our Mission

Our mission at Rockgarden Homes is to render professional and compassionate care, in an ambience of excellence.

We will create happy homes for successfully ageing senior citizens, where their dignity is upheld.

We hope to provide “person-centred” care, in a safe environment that supports our client’s social, physical and health needs.

We guarantee respite and peace of mind for relatives geographically distant from their elderly loved ones.

We promote the use of evidence-based principles and a respect for the heritage, culture and traditions of each of our residents.
