I recently found out about an assisted living facility in Atlanta called DogwoodForest.com. Now, I’m not about to put my mom in an assisted living facility or anything – as she says, she’s still a “spring chicken,” so no need – but I found out about this company through my job and I gotta say I like their style.
They are one of the only facilities using something called Simple C, a non drug alternative to helping make seniors lives happier. For example, if you have alzhimers, instead of treating you with a bunch of drugs, the staff at this unique community actually create scrap books, scan them and show them to you because science apparently shows it increases brain activity.
Dogwood forest also uses their residents favorite music and other unique behavioral tools to make seniors lives happier. Gotta say, if I did plan to have parents in an assisted living facility, or if I ever decided to retire in an assisted living community, this would definitely be the type I’d go for… (and maybe my mom would even dig it)!
Note: the term Nursing Home seems to have a bad stigma, so I left that alone, but I guess you could consider Dogwood Forest a nursing home with happy residents and staff.
Wow! This is such a nice post! I really appreciate the great help of an assisted living.. Thank you!
Assisted living refers to institutions that provide special care for the Sick while giving them as much freedom as the facility allows. Sick people need a lot of attention, especially when it comes to their day-to-day activities. Unfortunately, not all Sick people have someone to take care of them at home and even if they have kids, some of them are too busy to attend to their aging parents.
