Frequently Asked Questions

What types of senior living options are found at Arbor Terrace Athens?

We understand that the process of finding the right senior living option for your situation can feel overwhelming. That is why at Arbor Terrace Athens, we provide assisted living, a Bridges neighborhood, and an Evergreen neighborhood.

Our assisted living option is perfect for seniors enjoying retirement who need a little extra daily assistance. The Bridges neighborhood is a one-of-a-kind program designed for seniors in the early stage of cognitive decline. Our Evergreen neighborhood is designed for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia who need extra care on a day-to-day basis for their cognitive health.

It can be difficult to find the right option depending on the type of care you need. Contact us today at Arbor Terrace to get more information about what each of our programs provides!

What amenities does Arbor Terrace Athens offer?

An important aspect of finding the right senior living option for your lifestyle is finding the right amenities. At Arbor Terrace, our programs provide all of the services and amenities seniors need to enjoy their retirement.

We provide luxurious dining, concierge services, fitness programs, laundry services, housekeeping, and transportation. Our schedule is also packed with activities and events, and seniors can enjoy our outdoor spaces, beauty salon, and spa.

What is the cost of memory care in Georgia?

The cost of senior living and memory care in Georgia varies based on the community and the care needed. To learn more about the cost of care, speak with one of our trusted senior living advisors or check out our cost calculator.

What’s the difference between a nursing home in Athens, GA, and Arbor Terrace?

If you have started to require additional assistance with everyday tasks, you may be considering moving into a nursing home or an Arbor Terrace Athens community. Georgia nursing homes provide a very clinical atmosphere where seniors can get 24/7 care from medical professionals and caregivers.

Residents often have to share rooms and don’t have much privacy or control over their schedules. This is very different from an Arbor Terrace community, where each resident resides in their own apartment. Our residents have control over their schedules and can enjoy a variety of events, activities, and programs around the community.

Arbor Terrace communities provide a more home-like environment that encourages socialization and enrichment. It allows seniors to enjoy their retirement even as their care needs progress.

How much does senior living cost in Athens, GA?

If you are ready to make the transition into a senior living community in Athens, GA, you may need to create a budget. It can be difficult to do this since the costs will vary depending on the community you join, your care needs, and other care factors.

What is the Bridges neighborhood at Arbor Terrace Athens?

If you have Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, you may be looking for a senior living option that provides cognitive care. At Arbor Terrace Athens, our Bridges neighborhood is a one-of-a-kind program that is designed specifically for seniors with mild cognitive impairment.

The Bridges neighborhood assists seniors as they are going through the early stages of cognitive decline. Our caregivers and medical professionals are specially trained, and our community has been designed to help slow the progression of these symptoms.

How are memory care services different from assisted living services in Athens, GA?

Seniors who are considering senior living options in Athens, GA, will need to understand how these communities differ from each other. Two very common options are memory care and assisted living communities, but they provide very different things.

An assisted living community is designed primarily for seniors who are enjoying retirement but require a little additional assistance. They may need help having access to three meals a day or may need assistance with transportation or housekeeping.

On the other hand, memory care is specifically designed for seniors with cognitive decline, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. They usually require far more extensive daily care that includes a safer living environment, personal care, and cognitive activities.

For more information on whether memory care or assisted living services are the right option for you, contact us today at Arbor Terrace Athens.

How is assisted living different from at-home care in Athens, GA?

Seniors who require some daily assistance with everyday tasks may not know what senior living option is the right fit for their situation. Two options that are often compared are assisted living communities and at-home care.

At-home care is when seniors age in place in their homes, and a caregiver visits them to provide daily assistance. This is a good option for seniors who do not have many care needs, but it can become very pricey the more care you require.

An assisted living community caters to seniors enjoying retirement who need very minimal daily assistance. These communities provide things like transportation, housekeeping, laundry services, events and activities, and dining options.

Why live at Arbor Terrace Athens instead of living at home?

Remaining at home is a very tempting option for many seniors, but it isn’t always ideal. Aging at home comes with a variety of expenses, along with the cost of receiving additional care from a caregiver. For instance, not only do you have to pay for caregiving services, you have to pay rent or mortgage, utility, and grocery bills.

When you move into an Arbor Terrace Athens community, your expenses are condensed into one monthly bill. This bill will not fluctuate as much as your expenses at home would, giving you more financial security.

An Arbor Terrace community also provides daily socialization that you wouldn’t get at home. We provide high-quality dining services and different communities that can provide additional care as your caregiving needs change.
