I visited this facility
I visited Governor's Glen. I think it’s a very nice facility and probably where I’ll put my mom. The rooms were pretty nice, a pretty decent size, and everything was clean. The community was comfortable and nice. The staff showed me where the dining room was located and how some of the residents were out in the area where they watch TV, so everything was in order.

Governor's Glen was very nice. The place was beautiful. If all goes well, this would probably be my first choice because I liked the facility. They had exercises and quite a bit of activities for the patients, and I thought that was very nice because that is what my sister needs. I liked the way it was setup. It was clean.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother is in Governors Glen. It has a safe, secure and healthy atmosphere. It is clean and well kept. The staff is professional. They always resolve any issue that I have. Their dining room is adequate. However, they can improve on their communication with the family. I am recommending them to others.

The staff was vey professional. The center was extremely clean. The food was very tasteful and well put together by a chef. I didn't see too much going on it was a Sunday so many were in Bible Study. Others were watching television and doing karaoke.

Welcome to Governor’s Glen Assisted Living
The Atlanta assisted living community, Governor’s Glen, offers adult daycare, short-term respite care, and long-term assisted living for the elderly suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other cognitive impairments. A daycare participant may come for any 8 hour period during the day to allow his or her at-home caregiver to attend to other things, such as work or running errands. Daycare participants receive the same attention and high level of care as the long-term residents and respite care visitors receive. Everyone is encouraged to participate in a variety of social activities like exercise classes and special entertainment events. Pet and music therapy, among other techniques to encourage residents and visitors to engage with the community, are utilized as well.
