our care services at Morningside of Athens
Assisted living residents are those who do not need skilled nursing care, but may need assistance with some aspects of daily life. This can include personal care such as dressing and grooming, monitoring of health, safety, and overall well-being, coordination of outside health care providers, assistance with medication, companionship, and more.
Our assisted living residents at Morningside of Athens live in their own private apartment within our community so that they have the support and services they need, while continuing to be as independent and active as possible.
Our Healthy Generation Program is our commitment to caring for the whole person. It is what makes the Morningside approach to senior assisted living different. The goal of Healthy Generation is to teach residents about a whole person approach to a balanced lifestyle. It focuses on five important areas of health and lifestyle for each resident:
Healthy Generation includes:
- Daily planned programs and special events - The Healthy Generation Balanced Calendar includes a monthly theme and programs that focus on each of the five areas of good health. Some of our core programs include fall prevention, hydration education and exercise.
- Wellness programs individually tailored to residents with chronic conditions - Our goal for chronic conditions such as arthritis, dementia, diabetes and hypertension is to minimize the effects of the condition, enhance daily living and prevent complications. Working with the resident, the family and the physician, a resident's wellness plan of action is tailored to her or his individual needs.
Morningside of Athens also offers short-term stays for seniors who need care after a hospital stay, or when family members travel out of town or simply need a short respite break from the stresses of caregiving.
Short-term stays can vary from a week to months. Short-term guests enjoy housekeeping services, dining, community activities, transportation and other amenities, as well as coordination of any necessary medical care and help with daily living activities.
