  • This is a very large personal care home-not an assisted living facility.

    This facility IS NOT an assisted living facility but they will say they provide assisted living. Make sure you are educated in the difference between a personal care home (which is what they are and put themselves out to be) and an assisted living facility, at least in Georgia, so your expectations are realistic. The difference significantly impacts the required staff qualifications and accountability. The following website can provide good, unbiased information that might help guide you in making the right decision. It is important you know what you are getting for your money and your loved one.

    My father was living at this facility for about 8 months. The people in the Memory Care side are truly amazing. They know and love each of these individuals like their own family members. In addition to taking care of all of their needs each day, they take an extra interest in their extended family, offering fun activities each day/week for families to attend. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone.

  • Rude Staff!!

    I was not impressed with the staff who gave my loved one and I tour of this community. They were not professional and I just had such an awkward feeling throughout the entire visit. It was very uncomfortable and I would not want my loved one to be cared for by them. The over all facility did not have a warm feeling to it and felt nothing like a home.
