A.G. Rhodes currently operates 3 nursing homes in Cobb, Fulton, and DeKalb, providing long- and short-term care, therapy and rehabilitation services to 1,100 underinsured and underserved metro Atlanta seniors each year. More than half of its residents are estimated to have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

On Friday, June 14, the Marietta location will open its new skilled nursing and memory care community, a “household-model” building designed for 72 residents living with dementia, plus renovation of its existing building with 58 residents. Both buildings will feature private rooms; the new community will feature a community kitchen and dining room, living room, sunroom, gardens, and rehab gym.

This community is a change from the traditional hospital-like design of most long-term care nursing communities. The Wylie Road location is designed to be a model that other nursing homes can use to convert double rooms to private rooms, improve a person-centered model of care and prepare for potential infectious disease outbreaks.
