Reviews of Dougherty Ferry Assisted Living and Memory Care
- Happy Community
The staff here is fantastic. This was the friendliest community I have ever been in. Everyone seemed very happy! I could not move my mom in as she needed higher care, but I would have in a heartbeat.

The staff initiated friendly and helpful interactions on a daily basis to make sure that the care of their residents is evident through their actions and attitude.
