Somerby of Alpharetta is the best!!.
My Mom moved to Somerby two years ago and has loved it. When she first moved there, she lived in the Independent Living area and her needing Assisted Living was the last thing on our minds. Because of some medical issues, she needed to move to the Assisted Living area about a year after she moved in. The transition was wonderful and so easy on my Mom. The staff in both areas are highly qualified, very caring, very responsible, very thorough and very loving. My Mother loves it there and us, her family, feel so comfortable with the care she receives and the environment that she lives in. The restaurant and the food is nicely prepared and there are lots of choices. There are so many activities including day trips, performers, arts and crafts, discussions, and even just a nice tv room where residents can sit with each other and watch tv together. Somerby has surpassed our expectations 100 times over.
Not only is Somerby a wonderful community for many reasons, but so nice to know that if your family member needs to make the change from Independent Living to Assisted Living or even to Memory Care, they can stay in the community and make an easy transition.
5 Star Quality retirement/assisted living residence.
Think of all the wonderful characteristics you would like a retirement/assisted living home to have and that is Somerby of Alpharetta. Each time I visit my mom I am struck by how caring. compassionate and loving the entire staff is. The facility is beautiful - airy and cheerful. The dining room is lovely and the choice of food on the menu is wide. Meals are tasty and residents have many choices. There are activities galore with options for all. Thought is put into having options for many interests - cultural, social, physical, academic, outings, etc. Staff members also are very attentive to the physical/medical needs of residents. Recently a staff member noticed that my mom had a slight wheezing condition. They immediately followed up on it. Due to their promptness, she received immediate care and she avoided pneumonia.
You can list all the superlatives you can think of and they all would describe Somerby! If you or a loved one is lucky enough to live at Somerby of Alpharetta, you can consider yourself blessed.
A few years ago my wife and I began to have some serious health issues. We lived in a mountain community many miles from our primary medical caregivers and our children. Our children urged us to find a retirement community closer to them and to good medical care. We looked at a half-dozen or more prospects and said, "We''ll wait." (Somerby of Alpharetta did not yet exist at that time.)
In Early 2009 our doctors told my wife she should stop driving. She broke her hip soon afterwards. During almost daily commutes to her doctors in Atlanta and her rehab facility in Marietta, I realized that my own ability to drive had deteriorated to the point that it was no longer safe for us or for others. We decided that it was time to get serious about making a change. We looked again at several options that might have sufficed, but each of them involved compromises in lifestyle that were not comfortable for us. We discovered Somerby of Alpharetta, received a brochure and were invited for lunch and a tour. We said' "This is the one."
We called our son to ask for his help with a contract. He had been unaware of our recent committment to make such a move. He said, "why don't you look around some more? You may find a place you like better." I quoted Will Rogers: "Even if you are on the right track, if you just stand there, you'll get run over." He laughed and helped us review the contract. We moved to Someby within a month.
We have now lived at Somerby of Alpharetta for two years. The staff here is competent and caring. We have adequate assistance with our present needs and on-site facilities and staff for anticipated increases in our needs for years to come. Somerby provides rich programs for maintaining our physical, intellectual and social well-being. We have many new interesting and loving neighbors and friends. The quality of nearby shopping, cultural and medical resources available in the Alpharetta area would be hard to beat. We would make the same choice again.
