An Enduring Spirit of Love and Care

Culture | Presbyterian Homes of Georgia

Presbyterian Homes of Georgia is a ministry of love. You see it in the confident faces of our residents. You see it in our devoted team, administration and board of trustees. You see it in the giving of time, talent and treasure by thousands of supporters and volunteers. And it’s there in the lasting covenant we share with Presbyterian churches statewide.

Our culture is based on service excellence that puts the needs of our residents first. It’s a living spirit that comes from our dedication to who we are as a Christian ministry. We believe that every human being is valuable, and they’re treated with the compassion and respect they deserve.

Throughout all our senior living communities in Georgia, a fulfilling lifestyle is delivered with a caring heart. Our staff-to-resident ratio is exceptionally high, which feeds into our culture and promotes a better experience for all. Staff and residents become extended family and go above and beyond to make all feel welcome, forge new friendships and look out for one another.

A Message from Our President

Looking back through the lens of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, Presbyterian Homes of Georgia’s 70th Anniversary Year of 2019, was an idyllic year of normalcy.  It was a year of great accomplishment and of transition, as we prepared to say goodbye to our long-serving leader Dr. Frank H. McElroy, Jr. and as I prepared to take over leadership.  2019 was a capstone to Frank’s career guided by his scripture verse:  Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” NKJV.

A month into my tenure as President and CEO, the war against coronavirus hit.  Senior retirement and long-term care facilities have been at the heart of the battle because we serve the portion of the population most vulnerable to the virus.  And, we are still there – fighting every day to keep our residents safe and healthy.  With God’s help, we have had limited exposure and few deaths related to COVID-19.

Proverbs 3:5-6 is more poignant now than ever.  As we go forward, we trust in God to make our path straight.  I pledge to lead, always trusting in Him.
