Under new management! Since management has changed hands, it has become obvious of the change in the atmosphere. The staff is all very welcoming and seem to care for each resident. I am happy to know that many people that I love are being well taken care of!

Brasstown Manor had very nice and spacious one-bedroom apartments, full-sized kitchens with full-sized appliances, nice and large bathrooms, walk-in showers with seats, double closets, very large bedrooms, and a balcony that’s like a little patio area. It was actually the cheapest of everything I’ve looked at, and that’s why I went to visit it. The only thing was it didn’t have handicapped parking close to the entrance, which didn’t make sense to me. They even had washer and dryer hookups in the apartment unit and basically everything I wanted. They offer good transportation service to doctors’ appointments, food, shopping, entertainment, field trips, and things. They had a nice clubhouse, game room, and a good activity schedule. There wasn’t anything there that they didn’t have. The only thing that they didn’t have was a pool. They had a library, a beautiful lobby with TVs, and very comfortable recliners. It’s beautiful. I’m a retired woodshop teacher, and they have absolutely beautiful antiques spread throughout the whole facility.

I visited this facility a few months ago to visit a family member of mine who had recently taken residence there. This facility was and is very welcoming and visitor friendly, the staff made a very welcoming enviorment for mhy family and I. The staff however seemed very rushed, as if they did not have the appropriate amount of time to care for each resident on an individual basis which was worrisome to me. I also noticed that they did not practice universal precautions appropriatly with proper handwashing techniques or glove use. Over all I foun the facility to be very clean and organized, so perhaps the problem is that the employee's have become to comfortable and just need to be re-briefed a to why proper tchnique is so vital in assited living and long term car facilities in controlling the spread of virises and bacteria, these are very important.

The facility is in good condition and well-maintained, but some of the employees working there during the time I was visiting my great aunt were a little brisk. One of the CNAs was rude to my mother when she asked for directions, cutting here off and telling us to stop bothering her. Other than an aide who was also short with us, everyone else was kind and helpful. The rooms are large and have quality furnishings, and my great aunt really enjoyed the activities they had on a daily basis. My great aunt needed full time care and she said that the nurses and doctors actually listened to her. We had moved her to Brasstown Manor after bad experiences with another living facility in Blairsville. This location was much nicer and worked out better for both our family and my great aunt. She lived there until she was hospitalized.

Brasstown Manor is clean and appears to have been designed with the residents' comfort in mind. The decor in the common rooms is beautiful. The staff is friendly and courteous. There appears to be regular activities for the residents, including trips to go shopping. If patients have any concerns, there is a nurse available during the day to speak with or the nurse can be called after hours if necessary. Chatuge Regional Hospital is nearby so emergency care is available within minutes.
Night shift does appear to be a little understaffed, although that may have changed since my visit. While I understand that a full staff isn't necessary when most of the residents are sleeping, I would prefer that there be more than two people to cover the entire facility, including the independent living wing.
