Description of Manor Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care Ellijay
If you’re worried about a senior parent, you’ll find relief at Manor Lake Ellijay. Care at Manor Lake Ellijay is more than just meals and medications. It includes serving the Body, Mind and Spirit of a senior – because care is physical, emotional, and transcendent.
It begins with an Individualized Care Plan based on need, and continues with a building that’s comfortable and easy for a senior to learn and navigate. The care staff is directed by an LPN who makes sure your loved one receives appropriate and gentle care in a fun environment. We hope you’re excited about having a senior care community in Ellijay focused on the health and well-being of your loved one.
Assisted Living is perfect for seniors who are mostly independent, yet need help managing medications and meals. But there’s much more to Assisted Living than that.
At Manor Lake Ellijay, housekeeping, laundry, and activities are services seniors love. Hot and delicious meals are served three times a day and snacks are available all day.
Caregivers are on duty 24-hours a day, plus the LPN is full-time. Our primary tasks are to carefully manage medications, provide Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) when needed, and to become trusted friends of your loved one and your family.
Perhaps the hardest reality of aging for some seniors and their families is memory loss. There is no training to prepare you to care for a person with cognitive challenges, and there comes a time when love isn’t enough. Manor Lake Ellijay is here for you when it’s that time.
Whether brought on by Dementia or Alzheimer’s, these residents require the special care, understanding and skills of Manor Lake caregivers. They are sensitive to a senior’s moods and know how to interact with and redirect an agitated resident.
Just as in Assisted Living, we provide medication management, housekeeping, laundry, and meals. In addition, there are other measures we take for keeping residents safe and calm. To begin with, access to this area of the community is restricted exclusively to families, visitors, and staff. This prevents disruption and stops residents from wandering out into an unsafe world.
We have a beautiful garden area just for Memory Care residents, so sunshine and fresh air is a few steps away.
Every resident wears a call pendant, so at the push of a button, a familiar face is there to help. A pull chord call system is also in each room.
When you are searching for the right place for your loved one, our team is available to help guide you through this difficult process and answer any questions that may arise.
Manor Lake Ellijay is a comfortable and easy community for seniors to learn and navigate. Because we’re a single-story building, there are no elevators to wait on or confusing hallways. Just one simple level with centrally located common areas.
Inside, the community projects a warm lodge-like feel with a stunning central fireplace in the dining room. The building embraces a central courtyard filled with professionally tended gardens seniors can enjoy as they walk the meandering walkways.
The exterior doors are secured at night allowing access to staff and families with their personal codes. Residents easily unlock their room doors with electronic (RFID) bracelets or fobs and an electronic record is kept of each person accessing the room.
