At Silver Comet Village, our assisted living neighborhood provides each client with a separate living unit that includes a lockable door and private bathroom. The resident can receive assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, grooming, and mobility), as well as help with medication. Daily meals, transportation, and weekly housekeeping and laundry are included in the price. Additional services may be arranged with third-party providers, subject to any related policy of the assisted living community and state regulations.

Silver Comet Village will have on-site therapy services available to the residents whose physicians recommend physical, occupational or speech therapy.

No. Assisted living communities in Georgia are defined and regulated differently than nursing homes, although some of the same services are provided. For example, both assisted living neighborhoods and nursing homes can assist with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and mobility. However, nursing homes can deliver skilled nursing services, while a resident in an assisted living community must directly arrange with an outside agency or individual to receive these types of health care services.

While Memory Support is a secure neighborhood, the approach to care and service is very different. All staff engaged in our Memory Support neighborhood have specialized training and a passion for supporting those living with dementia. Both routine and flexibility are critical components of creating a fluid environment where we, as staff, adapt to resident needs, instead of asking residents to adjust to staff schedules.

No. States have different definitions of assisted living and various regulations.
