Happy Couple with Food

Whether a person needs help with everyday tasks, somebody to help them with errands and transportation, or needs additional support with mobility, some older adults can benefit from a helping hand.

At Brickmont Assisted Living, we strive to deliver the highest quality assisted living in Georgia. Our specially trained team members help residents each day – providing personalized care that meets each person’s unique needs.

Even though assisted living and care communities can help individuals reclaim their independence and find connection, many are still reluctant to consider them. We want to share how assisted living services can support you or someone you love and provide a safe, engaged, and enhanced quality of life.


Personalized Care: Support When It’s Needed

Assisted living is not meant to be a one-size-fits-all solution. Some people have greater needs than others, and communities recognize that. For some older adults, this might mean extra support with mobility. For others, it might require assistance with daily tasks such as personal hygiene. 

Regardless of the situation, assisted living services can lend support while allowing individuals to remain as independent as possible. Some common tasks that support an older adult include:

  • Transportation and errands
  • Meals
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Physical and mental support
  • Companionship

Brickmont Assisted Living helps older adults in Georgia enjoy safer, more relaxed, and more engaged lives by providing the right support.


Safety & Security: Enjoy Peace of Mind

While many older adults want to remain in their private home, for some, the safer option is moving to an assisted living community. For those in need of extra support, living alone can pose certain dangers:

  • Fall risks
  • Physical obstacles (e.g., stairs)
  • Social isolation
  • Increased risk of loneliness and depression

Assisted living communities provide around-the-clock supervision, which means someone will always be there when they are needed the most. Older adults will never have to worry about being isolated after a fall or not knowing where to turn for help when they need it.

Assisted living provides peace of mind for older adults and their families – and when people feel safer, they also feel free to enjoy the activities and events of daily life.


Freedom & Independence: Maintain Your Lifestyle

Many people assume that assisted living limits a person’s independence, but older adults feel a greater sense of freedom when they know there are trained and experienced professionals available to help them.

Assisted living is exactly that – assistance so you can live the way that you truly desire. For older adults, that means the freedom from stress and worry. It means having the time to do what they really enjoy each day. And it means the independence of getting the help they need when they need it.

At Brickmont Assisted Living, we empower our residents to live purposeful, vibrant lives each day. Our dedicated team is here to support them in accomplishing daily tasks so they never have to worry about doing it on their own. As a result, our residents enjoy greater autonomy and freedom in daily living.


Social Engagement: Build Friendships

For older adults, living alone later in life can have negative consequences. Among them is the danger of social isolation, which recent research indicates can lead to a variety of associated health conditions. 

Choosing to live in an assisted living community opens many opportunities for older adults. At Brickmont Assisted Living, we provide a monthly calendar of events and activities designed to help our residents explore new hobbies, engage with friends, and foster a sense of togetherness.

In doing so, we protect older adults against social isolation, providing them with a warm and inviting environment in which they always feel welcome.


Family Support: You Are Not Alone

Senior living, care options, health changes, and more can be overwhelming to navigate. Assisted living supports older adults by supporting their families as well. Family members have peace of mind knowing that their mother, father, grandparent, etc., is well taken care of by a dedicated team of compassionate caregivers.

Beyond that, assisted living communities become trusted resources for families who have not yet made the transition but want to learn more about how to best support a family member living at home.

At Brickmont Assisted Living, it is our mission to provide a safe and loving environment for older adults. Our communities serve residents with kindness, respect, and compassion – giving older adults the support as well as the freedom they need to continue to thrive.
