As the Atlanta Metro Area’s premier memory impairment assisted living community, our staff is completely dedicated to improving life for all of our assisted living residents, respite care visitors, and adult daycare participants. Every senior in our various programs at Governor’s Glen receives their own private or semi-private room and their own bathroom. While our permanent residents must provide their own furnishings, our respite care visitors and adult daycare participants will have their furniture provided. Regardless of whether a senior at Governor’s Glen is receiving full time care, short term respite care, or participating in our unique adult daycare program, they are provided three meals and two snacks. Our staff chef can also make any necessary accommodations for special dietary considerations.
Cognitive Impairment Care
Additionally, our accommodating, friendly staff is trained to work with seniors who have different levels of cognitive impairment due to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or other memory disorders. With a licensed nurse on staff, a board certified psychiatrist on call, monthly wellness checks, and routine access to doctors, specialists, dentists, and on site physical therapy sessions, Governor’s Glen offers high quality medical care to all of our program participants. Our staff also provides housekeeping , laundry and daily medication management for all of our memory impaired seniors.
An Active Senior Citizen Community

> Barber and beauty salon
> Entertainment area
> Gas log fireplaces
> Bathrooms with motion sensor lighting
> Secured entrances and exits
