Aging Gracefully in Atlanta: Wesley Woods Senior Living

By Elisha Neubauer

Choosing the right senior community for yourself or a loved one can be daunting. Are you picking the right one? Is it safe? What about the staff? While perusing local retirement and senior communities, you'll want to look for several notable features: a gentle, caring staff, efficient security, a hygienic environment, and engaging activities. Wesley Woods Senior Living aims to provide all that and more for their residents.

"I feel that we excel in each space- I'm saying this from a position of humility," states Kevin Queen, Marketing Director for two of Wesley Woods' locations. "We have a very low turnover and I think it's because we do a good job in those key areas- we've made them operational priorities."

Wesley Woods offers a wide range of services to ensure its residents have the best living quality available. These services include licensed personal care (assisted living), skilled nursing services, home care services, and residential retirement living. In addition to these, they also provide transportation to meet their residents' needs.

"It's a really big deal to our residents that we offer transportation," says Queen. "As our residents age and find themselves unable to drive we provide a solution for them to still get around without having to move and disrupt their life/lifestyle. We have 3 days of "in-town" traveling- grocery stores/shopping, doctor/dentist visits."

Wesley Woods partners with the local grocery stores to have extra staff on hand to assist with loading and purchasing. "The local doctors/dentists also work with us to make sure we can drop off and pick up our residents within regularly scheduled stops during business hours," explains Queen.

To ensure their residents are never bored, Wesley Woods gets creative. "Every Friday we take an out of town trip," Queen tells us. "Our residents call this their field trip and they love it. We take them to the zoo, different malls, new restaurants, etc. It's a resident favorite!"

Knowing how to give residents quality of life is what has kept Wesley Woods in good standing in Atlanta. "There is a fine line when providing assistance in an "Independent-living" facility," says Queen. "Our staff does an excellent job of being supportive and patient with our residents while at the same time encouraging independence. We're here to help our residents age in place while continuing to focus on quality of life."

Wesley Woods has 10 locations in Georgia. Feel free to check out these locations on their website. Three of them are already below:
