Persons of all faiths are accepted and served through an ecumenical spiritual program.
Yes, Presbyterian Homes of Georgia was founded in 1949 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
No, but for more than 60 years, we’ve 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 we render each year to our most vulnerable residents.
There are five, with a sixth under development. We have two Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs): Presbyterian Home and Retirement Community in Quitman, and Presbyterian Village in Austell. Three are affordable senior living apartment communities: Philips Tower in Decatur, Calvin Court in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, and Swainsboro Presbyterian Apartments in Emanuel County. Together, the five Presbyterian Homes communities serve more than 1,000 residents. The sixth CCRC is in development for the Athens/Oconee area.
This type of senior living community provides a full continuum of care from Independent Living to Supportive Living, Memory Care and 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.
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.
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.
