Overall a good experience, great place for loved ones and would recommend

Their communication has been really good, we think they went beyond making the residents feel comfortable. They assist in anyway possible especially during the pandemic. They made our loved ones transition very nice, it was awesome and we are very appreciative

March 8, 2021

Kathryn, thank you for sharing your feedback on your experience. We know that communication out to families is very important and we're heartened to hear you feel that aspect has been top notch. It is also gratifying to read the team has gone above and beyond to ease your loved one's transition to the community. We appreciate that you've mentioned our COVID precautions, as we are dedicated to both the health and happiness of our residents -- and are thankful when families take the time to give a shout out to the team for all their hard work this year.

so friendly and accommodating

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 love the stafff and the residents here are to die for. Not only have I visited this community in Athens, Ga I have also visited one of their sister companies as well. They both are great places for wonderful residents to live and enjoy wonderful food, fun and so much more.

Only a brief stay, but they did a wonderful job

Our loved one was unfortunately only here for a very brief time, but I think they did a great job overall. They were very very accommodating, and worked amazingly well with a hospice service to make sure that his last days were comfortable.

Great Place!

Morningside of Athens is a wonderful place. It is a smaller facility with 40 suites. It is a lot more cheery than other places I visited (not so hospital like or dark and gloomy). The director Teresa is fabulous and did everything in her power to make things acceptable for my mother. I would highly recommend this facility to someone.

Mom's Stay

They were great for what my mom needed. She was never happy anywhere but the Morningside crew did their best. The facilities were very nice and clean. They offered many activities (which mom would not do) and the meals looked appetizing!! It was very convenient for us and we were able to visit all hours of the day. They tried to help mom feel good and they made sure she was up and dressed daily. We appreciate all they did!

Looked very nice

We toured this location when we were looking into options for our loved one. Everything here looked very good, it was a well kept, clean facility, and the staff were all very friendly and professional. This was originally our first choice, and I even had a deposit down, but in a last round of searching we found one just as nice that was much more convenient for family members to get to. We love the place we found, but I think they would have done just as good a job here!

This facility was very nice...

This facility was very nice. It is in excellent condition, and the residents appear well cared for. They do have an opening, and are in our price range. They will hold the space for a deposit fee.
