Located on the campus of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, the Garrison Center is an example of collaboration between an established, renowned university and long standing senior-care Corporation. As many as 120 residents can benefit from this fully functional state-of-the-art long-term care center, where 60 beds are dedicated to traditional nursing care and 60 beds provide services to those with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.
