Description of Athens Place
Nestled at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains in the historic small town of Athens, Brookdale Athens (formerly Wellington Place of Athens) is a stately assisted living community serving Tennessee seniors who need a little extra help with the daily chores of life. Our community also welcomes seniors challenged by Alzheimer's and dementia.
Brookdale Athens is owned and operated by Brookdale, a company dedicated to providing retirement options for seniors since 1978. With vision, commitment and a keen sense of detail, we have become the nation's leading senior living community provider.
Chef-prepared meals are served three times a day in our restaurant-style dining room by trained wait staff. Menus are varied and there is no assigned seating. A private dining room is available, and our chefs will cater for parties and functions, even preparing a resident's own recipe upon request.
Residents have their choice of studio or one-bedroom apartments that come furnished with carpeting, kitchenette, individual temperature controls, basic cable service and private bathrooms featuring step-in showers with safety bars and non-slip flooring. Small pets are also welcome to reside in our apartments.
Here at Brookdale Athens, we believe in maximum independence. Our trained staff know when to assist and when to step back. Nursing staff are on-call 24 hours a day to oversee medication administration and monitor the health status of residents.
For the convenience of our residents, our housekeeping staff will regularly clean all apartments, change bed linens and even launder clothing items. Our transportation staff are on hand to drop off and pick up residents from appointments, shopping and errands.
Our goal at Brookdale Athens is to provide the right level of support for each of our seniors, while encouraging them to remain as independent as possible.
