Georgia Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Georgia Alzheimer’s care homes take great pride in the overall presentation and services of at their facilities. Southern hospitality is a very real thing, and very evident in Georgia where staff is extremely friendly and caring. You can expect to find pleasant and helpful interactions with dementia trained caregivers on a daily basis that also operate with full transparency and encourage frequent visits with friends and family members of the in-house resident.

The rooms in the facilities (whether semi-private or private) are beautifully furnished and decorated. The buildings are often well-lit and specifically designed for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia known for wandering. Added security around the premise, including the ability for residents to wear security pendants in order to avoid wandering outside the facility grounds, are also offered.

Staff firmly adheres to personal privacy standards and treat residents with the utmost respect and dignity. They understand that while participation in activities and group socialization opportunities help with cognitive stimulation, they also do not force participation when it is clear the resident is not feeling well, or would like to be left temporarily alone.

The food dining experience is often phenomenal at Georgia Alzheimer’s care facilities based on the tasty food of the region. Food preparation and servings, as well as housekeeping chores, can take a substantial workload off what other members of the family were previously handling.

The memory care communities often feature a wide variety of daily activities from engagement for positive cognitive support to personal productivity tasks to leisure games and activities, as well as strengthening exercises for walking and balance.
