Seeing a loved one age can be hard. As a parent or loved one gets older, the amount of care and support they need increases. Often, once routine chores will become difficult for them, and they may need help both in the house and in the yard. You may need to assist them in running errands, and they may have no one to talk to except family members. And as they age, there is a heightened risk for dangerous accidents—especially if they’re also forgetful. This is when living alone is no longer a good idea, and it’s time to consider assisted living.
Atlanta has numerous assisted living communities. But not all of these communities will live up to your expectations. When evaluating a community, you want to be sure that staff are experienced, kind and professional and that they will give your loved one ample individual attention. You want to know that other residents are happy there and that residents socialize and have fun together. And most of all, you want to be sure that your loved one will get the absolute best care possible. In a good assisted living community, seniors thrive.
That’s the sort of assisted living environment we’ve created at Dogwood Forest.
The Dogwood Forest Difference
We believe that a senior’s living environment makes a crucial difference in their health. Living environment affects stress level, energy level, mood, and whether daily tasks are easy or hard. And all of these factors are key in both how happy a person is, and their overall health. That’s why we’ve designed our communities from the ground up to be the ideal environment for seniors.
The difference at Dogwood Forest is obvious as soon as you walk in the door. You’ll see that seniors are happy and having fun together, while staff are friendly and make time for each resident. You may notice that each room is easy to move around, designed for those with mobility limits. The furniture is chosen to be easy on those with arthritis, while every detail from the color of the décor to the ingredients in the meals reflects the latest evidence in improving outcomes for seniors.
Highlights of our communities include:
- Personalized care for every resident
- Delicious chef-prepared meals with heart-healthy and brain-healthy ingredients
- Memory care available for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia
- Physical therapy and speech therapy available where needed
- An ongoing lineup of fun activities including fitness, spiritual, social and learning programs
- A professional nurse on staff at each community
