My mom and dad came to Ashely Glen from another assisted living facility experience. Leaving their home of many years was a difficult choice to make, but my mother’s Alzheimer’s necessitated more care and attention than my father could provide on his own ~ not from a lack of wanting and loving devotion. We made that transition from totally independent to a need for moderate caregiving and found that what was offered during the “sales pitch” and initial introduction to the facility was not at all what became the reality of living at that facility. After a period of over a year, our family knew we needed to make a change and began the search from Marietta to Carrollton to Peachtree City to find another assisted living facility that would fit our needs and desires. That is when we found Ashley Glen and we are so very glad we did!
The loving care, concern and support that we perceived during our interviews is exactly what our reality was from the time mom and dad moved in. The interaction with the staff, both administratively and the caregivers, from the very beginning was one of building and lasting relationships. The friendliness, care and concern were beyond that of just a job description, it is what the staff of Ashley Glen are all about. They took the responsibilities of day to day living off our shoulders as the family and meet those needs as they came. Communicating with us in various ways of all that was going on, changes that were occurring and sharing with us the memories being made at Ashley Glen as mom and dad participated in the activities and programs that were offered regularly as well as the ongoing assisted living care throughout each day. From big things like medication changes and suggested need for the doctor’s attention to the small details such as providing dad with handwritten televised football schedules on a weekly basis so he could follow his favorite teams during the fall football season, their needs were met. One of the most important aspects of living at Ashley Glen is the respect that is given to our parents and the encouragement to our family. There is a peace of mind that is not found in every assisted living facility, believe me! We experienced the difference of “night and day” and are so thankful to have found Ashley Glen for our parents and know what a blessing they are!
