Gardner’s House is a place for cancer survivors and their families to go for respite and help. It is the only organization of its kind in the City of Hartford and surrounding cities and towns.
Gardner’s House offers a comprehensive and holistic environment for cancer patients and their families. It is a place to help the patient and family members relieve stress, and for the family to get advice on how to handle their desperate situation, to recover and return to a full and normal life. We recognize that the body heals better in an environment of caring and support and that a united family is essential. We are an advocate for those needing help with basic needs, providing accurate information and social and emotional support in a private setting.
We offer referrals to local and state agencies that have the resources to assist financially and socially. We also help fill the void that is left by the disease by offering a home away from home, a meeting place for support groups to share experiences with others in the same situation, a place of peace and quiet, a place to heal body, soul and mind. By eliminating the hospital and hospice atmosphere, we can offer an optimistic environment for healing and recuperation in our wellness center.
