“The threads woven into the fabric of our lives create a beautiful tapestry.”

— Marilyn S. Bateman

About Walden


We chose the name “Tapestry” because it embodies our mission and our story. No organization or person can realize their full potential alone. The richest life consists of many threads woven together to create a dynamic tapestry — an ever-changing vignette made richer by the people in our lives.

Tapestry of Tallahassee’s story interweaves tradition, innovation, technology and service to help residents feel purposeful, valued, respected, dignified and empowered. The threads are the Tapestry nurses and caregivers, community doctors, therapists, community partners, families and most importantly… you.

Our philosophy of person-centered care impacts everything we do. We understand that every resident is an individual and believe that you are in the best position to direct your own care. We understand that our residents are ultimately in charge; we are only helpers and guides along your journey.

Tapestry Senior Housing Management, LLC is comprised of a management team with experience in all facets of senior housing, including ownership, management and marketing of assisted living and memory care facilities.
