I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

3 years ago I found it necessary to find a memory care facility to care for my husband. After 9 years of caring for him my health became an issue. We had been married 53 happy years and it was the hardest decision I had ever made! I visited every facility in my area that I was familiar with, We had just moved back to the Decatur Area after spending 16 happy years in Savannah, Ga. in retirement. I visited many different facilities and was told that I could live with him in one of them. I moved in, The next day, I was told that someone had made a mistake and that I could not live with him. I found another facility. It was a lovely place. The majority of the caregivers were not well trained. After a patient was injured because of neglect, I knew I had to move again! A friend of mine told me about visiting a friend of hers at Northlake Gardens and that she was very impressed with it. I went, I saw, I too was very impressed with it. The Staff made the entrance process easy for me. He has been there 3 years. I feel that he is well taken care of. I love to visit the facility! I go daily. The memory care unit is included in special events and activities. They are taken on field trips and out to eat. The food is outstanding. The many events that they have include family and I am always amazed at how good the food is. The lovely flower garden and fish pond in the center of the home can be seen from his room. I was shocked this pass week when he took my hand and led me to the door that goes to the garden. If I have a problem, I do not hesitate to report it to the proper person in charge. The Executive Director is a former Nurse and very capable. I used to worry about what would happen if I became ill. I can go to be at night and feel that he would be taken care of without me. I thank Northlake Garden for my peace.

My mother has been in the Memory Care wing at Northlake Gardens for 5 years. When the time came to look for a facility, I researched an visited several in the Tucker/ Lilburn area. The only place that felt like "home" was Northlake Gardens. I was greeted warmly by all the staff and Faye gave me a tour that was friendly and was a "drop in". I felt this was important since some facilities gave me only specific times I could come to see the facility. Since moving to this "home" my mother has been taken care of in the most loving and and giving manner. All of the residents are given outings, even those in the Bridge to Rediscovery (memory care). There are family dinners, holiday dinners, activities, music, just about anything you would want to participate in. Making the decision to place a parent in assisted living or memory care is difficult and heart wrenching, and one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. Northlake Garden's staff, from housekeeping, kitchen, facilities, office, caregivers, med-techs to management will treat you and your loved one as Family. I have recommended this facility to 3 of my friends and they have all moved their parent(s) here. I would not want my mother any where else.

Truly a wonderful place. My father has been there for a year and they take great care of him. The staff is warm and always willing to help. They are a great team and their leader, Charles James, is exceptional. I have never had a problem that he was not right on top of immediately. However, there have so rarely been any problems and they are always so minor, I know he runs a smooth ship. The rooms are comfortable, the lounge well appointed, the garden is beautiful, and the social activities are plentiful. I highly recommend that you give them a look.
