About Governor's Glen Memory Care Assisted Living

Governor's Glen opened in 1999 as an exclusive Alzheimer's/memory impaired assisted living community. Its founder and owner, Dr. Paul A. Colon, was a caregiver for his mother, Millie Michaels, who passed away from Alzheimer's Disease in 1997. Becoming an ALFA certified developer, he used his experience and knowledge to help design an assisted living residence that looks and feels like a home, not a hospital or hotel. Dr. Colon learned through his experience with his mother that socialization is the key to survival for a person with Alzheimer's. His mother was staying at home receiving 24-hour care when she fell and broke her hip in 1993. She was almost non-verbal and had lost much weight prior to her fall. But with a stay at a rehab facility, receiving social stimulation, she began showing signs of cognitive improvement. Dr. Colon was inspired to build a place for his mom, a place where residents would be loved and cared for and safe. His mother passed away before the dream could be realized for her, but her picture hangs over the fireplace in the parlor at Governor's Glen, with a plaque inscribed: "Dedicated to the memory of Millie Michaels and all those who have endured the challenges of memory impairment." Though she succumbed to Alzheimer's Disease, her legacy lives on today.

"I sometimes can't believe that all this has happened to all of us but I know none of it could have happened without you. I had no support from my siblings and when I had doubts My adviser was there. She was the best life coach I could have asked for."

Lisa D., Found Assisted Living in Atlanta, GA

"I just wanted to say had it not been for A Place for Mom I never would have found the community I had. It was such a nice, clean place and they took very good care of my mother.  You all were my last hope and literally saved my mother's life and relieved much of the stress I had been bearing."

Marilyn T., Found Assisted Living in Decatur , GA
