The Gardens is a premier assisted living community in the Biloxi-Gulfport area of Mississippi.

It’s a community you’ll be proud to call home. Here, you can center yourself and focus on living the good life, and we’ll take care of the rest. We offer world-class personal care for seniors with a small-town feel, and many of the comforts of home. We do everything we can to help maintain senior independence while giving just the amount of care needed. At The Gardens, you can enjoy your favorite activities as hobbies again. Connect with nature in our lush raised gardening beds, and leave the weeding and maintenance behind. Or meet some new friends by joining a card game, or attending movie night. Or participate in a fitness class. We have so many choices! For folks who need a little more assistance, we also lend a hand getting dressed in the morning or sorting out medications. Making life simple and enjoyable again is our pleasure.

Meet Jody Stoddard, Executive Director at The Gardens

As a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Jody realized at a young age that she wanted to spend her life caring for others. Jody obtained a Bachelor’s in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of Southern Mississippi, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from William Carey College. Since 2002, she has worked in a few hospitals out of the area, but found her way back home along the Gulf Coast in various healthcare positions until settling here at The Gardens. When Jody is away from The Gardens family, she is occupied by her two children and husband, Clay. She enjoys the beautiful Gulf of Mexico through sailing, fishing or sitting on the beach at Horne Island.
