Questions about The Georgian Lakeside
What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?
Our Memory Care communities are designed to empower residents to make their own living choices. Our approach is to educate families on new and productive patterns of communication with their loved one who is living with memory loss. Our entire team is NIDE (National Institute of Dementia Education) certified or scheduled to be trained. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. This allows us to interact with our residents as unique people rather than objects in need of care.
Describe the overall population of assisted living residents at The Georgian Lakeside. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?
When most people see gray hair, they see frailty and disability with low speeds and high needs. At Thrive, we see wisdom. We see laughter. We see ability. We see growth. We see potential. We see opportunity. These divergent views from tradition have created a community filled with older adults living purposeful, engaged lives. Because it’s about seizing the day, every day. It’s about finding a passion that percolates you so much that you can’t wait to get out of bed each morning to get started. At Thrive, residents engage in events and activities (whether it’s having coffee in the library or dancing) they’ve always loved, along with new friends they’ve made who love them as much as they do. The Average age of our residents is 79.

No one day is the same here and our goal is to reach all corners of the community.

We offer three (3) chef-prepared meals daily/gourmet dining experience. Our meals can be customized to dietary preferences and restrictions. “At mealtimes, residents gather around the table and enjoy cuisine that can only be described in one word. Mmm.” It all starts with the desire for quality coinciding with consistency. We have the most passionate team seeking ways on how to enhance their food quality, maintain creativity, meet nutritional standards, and employ menus that are tailored to the residents.
What safety features or security measures does The Georgian Lakeside offer to assisted living residents?
Safety is so important. We educate and train our team members, residents, and guests to first think of how to live their best life. At The Georgian Lakeside we work together to support people in making choices that move them closer to feeling the joys of life. We call this process of decision making SafetyThird. It’s a unique model that focused on the human experience. Locked doors from 9pm-8am, supplemented with constant surveillance at the front desk. Additionally, we implement accushield to have visibility on all approved guests for our residents.

We’ve spent the last decade carefully selecting team members who share our in our vision: a future society that will stand in awe and admiration of all older adults. People who see their mission as more than just a caretaker, but as a difference maker in the lives of those who live with us. Assisted Living daytime is 1:9; nighttime is 1:12. Memory Care daytime is 1:6 and nighttime 1:9.
If The Georgian Lakeside accepts dogs or cats, what indoor/outdoor areas can they enjoy?
Our attention to detail extends to our sense of space and we take great pride in our thoughtful, intentional design. So much so, that we not only have we created beautiful, purposefully-designed environments for you, but we have welcoming spaces for your pets, aka fur-babies, too. They would be able to enjoy the front foyer, the garden, and the back patio the ranges from one side of the community to the other that outlooks the lake.
What ongoing senior care training does the staff receive?
We don’t focus on giving great care. The focus is too low of a bar to shoot for. We focus on building meaningful relationships with our residents. We. Have found great care to be a by-product of great relationships. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Our leaders believe that if we love our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well. We have systems in place that assure residents are both free to explore their environment and maintain the dignity they deserve. We use both technology and team member observation to assure residents this freedom while keeping them protected.
How many staffers are on duty in the daytime and overnight?
We believe that the highest standards will provide residents and family with worry-free confidence in the overall resident experience. Knowing the needed help and team members are available when scheduled or requested needs arise is part of the overall “experience.” Staffing requirements vary by state licensing requirements and other considerations, such as size of the community and services offered. During the daytime we have 21 team members and at night we have 8.
What safety features or security measures does The Georgian Lakeside provide to protect residents who wander?
Our attention to detail extends to wandering residents as well. These residents are generally provided with greater supervision and security and we have team members and other caregivers that are accustomed to the impulsivity and reduced safety awareness that people with changing cognitive abilities may exhibit. The team members are trained to respectfully and humanely redirect the resident to the appropriate activity or location.
What programs or activities does The Georgian Lakeside offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?
Senior living doesn’t have to be sedentary. It should be full of activities and interactions that enrich, stimulate, and inspire older adults, with team members cheering them on every step of the way. That’s Thrive. Music and Dancing are HUGE here. We've got the care team to bring out the best moves in your loved ones. Additionally, we love gardening, coloring, arts & crafts, and more!
Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?
Our RN Completes all assessments. Residents health and cognitive functioning are evaluated prior to move in and periodically based on resident need, physician orders, and regulatory requirements. At a minimum, these assessments may be done quarterly and when changes in resident condition necessitate an evaluation.

About The Georgian Lakeside
Located in Roswell, the Georgian Lakeside is built on the foundation that Elders deserve to do their best living right now. Here, boredom has been banished, and replaced with opportunities to learn, mentor, engage and reminisce with new friends.
We have two living options under one roof- Assisted Living is ideal for residents who value their independence, but may need assistance with daily activities. Our community team members are raving fans of encouraging independence with assistance readily accessible at all times of day.
Memory Care is for our Elders who are living with some form of memory loss. Every member of The Georgian Lakeside team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. The education allows us to interact with our memory care residents as unique individuals rather than objects in need of care. Residents are engaged with the goal of helping them recapture moments of memories and the recognition of loved ones.
What Makes Us Special
Our team members (employees) come to work each day to build long lasting friendships with our Elders. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields.Get Costs
