Hearthstone Memory Supportbody-services

Choosing Hearthstone for your loved one means choosing a personalized approach to memory support. We are here to help with long-term care, short-term care, or day-care opportunities. Hearthstone is safe, secure and home-like, providing state-of-the-art design and leading-edge care methods. All of which means peace of mind for the entire family.

A New Approach to Care

Modeled after the Montessori concept of self-directed activities, Hearthstone meets the special needs of those with memory loss by using a person-centered care approach.

Residents are encouraged and supported in their established routines. Each day's schedule is personalized, so residents choose when to rise, dine, prepare for the day, and retire. From working jigsaw puzzles to joining in a sing-along to going safely for a walk, residents can select their day's activities. We'll even keep your loved one's favorite ice cream in the freezer.

Hearthstone residents also benefit from an innovative technology called SimpleC. SimpleC is a multimedia device programmed with the resident's favorite music, photographs and even the familiar voices of loved ones. The device is attached to a flat screen monitor set up in the resident's room. With SimpleC technology, our staff can support the resident with highly personalized therapy which effectively addresses the challenges of memory loss.

A Place to Flourish

Hearthstone features a cutting-edge design from the internationally renowned firm of Perkins Eastman Architects. Every detail, including memory-cued decorating and furnishings, helps residents maintain self-sufficiency. Even the floor textures and wall colors prompt residents toward greater independence in daily living.

A lovely two-story structure with 40 private apartments and four suites, Hearthstone also offers many common areas. Residents come together in the home-like, open country kitchens; meal times and selections are of their own choosing. Common living areas draw residents to engage with one another. Accessible, secure outdoor courtyards add a natural experience. We also offer field trips, giving our residents a chance to explore and be a part of the larger community.

Commitment to Excellence

Our carefully selected staff members receive ongoing, advanced training. Our team understands how to live in the moment with each resident and provide seamless service and support. Our unique approach earned a Georgia Best Practices award for resident-centered care.* Together, we make each day the best it can be for each of our residents.

The Right Level of Care For Your Needs

If skilled nursing care becomes necessary for your loved one, the Presbyterian Village Morris Health Center is adjacent to Hearthstone and offers special care for persons with advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The close proximity ensures a smooth transition.

*Georgia's Best Practices is a voluntary participation program by the state Department of Human Resources for more than 1,700 personal care homes and assisted-living communities.
