01 Sep Mount Vernon Towers Offers Outstanding Personal Care Center – and Peace of Mind
Mount Vernon Towers, the established senior condominium community in the heart of Sandy Springs, one of metro Atlanta’s most desirable and convenient areas near world-class hospitals, major shopping and important traffic arteries, offers a superb in-house Personal Care Center: the Sandy Springs Personal Care Center (PCC), This dedicated care facility with 26 beds is managed by Mrs. Ann Peterson, Director of Wellness, who oversees a staff of 17 employees.
Mount Vernon Towers’ Sandy Springs PCC is an option for post-surgery recovery and respite up to 30 days, both for Mount Vernon Towers’ residents and for people who live outside the retirement community.
Long-term Assisted Living
In addition, the Sandy Springs PCC is an option for long-term assisted living – as long as the PCC residents are deemed appropriate by the primary care physician, are able to assist with activities of daily living (dressing, eating, and mobility) and are able to communicate their needs and wishes. A full admissions protocol is in place.
Services and Therapies
At the Sandy Springs PCC, a dentist, podiatrist, dermatologist and a hearing specialist all visit regularly to provide services to the residents of Sandy Springs PCC as well as the entire Mount Vernon Towers community. Skilled nursing is available from outside healthcare providers. Rehab therapies are available through outside vendors including physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy.
Peace of Mind for Families
Often, when a loved one falls ill, one or more members of the family take on the role of caregiver – but in today’s society, many families live throughout the country, not within easy driving distance from their parent or other relative. Others are forced to juggle their own growing families, full time jobs and other demands with providing the level of care that is needed. In both instances, the caregivers, their families and their loved ones experience lots of stress and pressure.
At Sandy Springs PCC, caretakers find relief and comfort knowing that their loved ones do have quality care, around the clock. “We provide a true peace of mind for all parties involved,” notes Mrs. Peterson, who is on call 24/7.
“At Sandy Springs PCC, we provide a warm nurturing environment with caring, professional caregivers who are vigilant, and who observe and monitor the residents’ conditions and report any changes to me immediately.”
