Orchard at Athens
4.0

All the help is very good at to everyone. They are all kind. Things are not always done on time, but for the most part everyone is very helpful. When my husband was a live, I received very good help with him. There are enough activities to keep us busy. I enjoy living here very much.

The strongest quality that Morningside of Athens has is that they are so friendly and accommodating to the residents that live there. They really think about how things are going to affect them. For example, my dad had a lot of his family come to visit. When they left, someone from Morningside called me planning to do something special for my dad that afternoon, as he was feeling a little low and lonely after they left. So they just do things like that to go the extra mile, think of how things are affecting the residents, and proactively think of ways to make them happy.

I really like them. It's a very good place. For the food, you can order a la carte, and it's good clean food (not processed). For example, you can order a nice piece of salmon, potatoes, veggies. Most of the staff is excellent. The one negative is they don't communicate well between their internal groups, and you just don't know who you need to talk to when you have an issue. I would love to see them put together a roadmap so you can see how everything works. But it's a nice place overall.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks.

Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
