Does Presbyterian Homes accept only Presbyterians?

Persons of all faiths are accepted and served through an ecumenical spiritual program.

Is Presbyterian Homes of Georgia a non-profit organization?

Yes, Presbyterian Homes of Georgia was founded in 1949 and is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation.

Is Presbyterian Homes of Georgia part of the Presbyterian Church?

No, but for more than 60 years, we have been in a covenant agreement with the five Presbyteries in Georgia (PCUSA), which allows us to collect the Mother's Day Offering in Presbyterian churches. This offering helps support the more than $4 million in benevolent nursing care and other services that we render each year to our most vulnerable residents.

How many Presbyterian Homes are there in Georgia?

There are four. We have two continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs): Presbyterian Home and Retirement Community in Quitman, and Presbyterian Village in Austell. Two are affordable senior living apartment communities, Philips Tower in Decatur and Calvin Court in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood. Together, the four Presbyterian Homes communities serve more than 1,000 residents. A fifth CCRC is in development for the Athens/Oconee area.

What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?

This type of senior living community provides a continuum of care from independent living to assisted living to skilled nursing care. A CCRC offers comprehensive services to meet residents' needs today and in the future, enabling residents to remain at the same community as they age.

Is Presbyterian Homes of Georgia part of a national organization?

Many states have a Presbyterian Homes organization. Each operates as a separate entity to best meet the needs of residents in that particular state. However, the Presbyterian Association of Homes and Services for the Aging is a national organization whose members are affiliated and who work together to share best practices. Presbyterian Homes of Georgia also is a member of the Aging Services of Georgia and the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

How does Presbyterian Homes earn its excellent reputation for quality care?

For more than 60 years, Presbyterian Homes consistently has gone above and beyond the required numbers of nursing hours and other state regulations to ensure that each and every resident receives the highest quality of care possible.
