June 2018
Dear Family Members and Responsible Parties,

Over the last four years, I have been fortunate enough to be the Executive Director at Madison Heights as we opened the first stand-alone memory care community in the greater CSRA. The team at Madison Heights has achieved so much during this time through dedicated associates that work tirelessly with our family members to provide the compassionate and loving care that our residents deserve.

On June 4 th , I will assume the role of Vice President of Operations for our parent company Atlas Senior Living and Christen Willcox will assume the role of Executive Director. I have full confidence that Christen, and the entire staff will remain committed to the tradition of being the area’s premiere memory care community as we strive to live out our mission and vision statements every day.

It is our plan to make this transition as smooth as possible for our residents, their families and our staff in the coming weeks. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.

All the best,
Marcus Covar

Support Group
A support group led by a Madison Heights staff member meets the third Thursday of each month at 2:00 at the Alzheimer's Association. If this date or time is not convenient for you contact Beth at the Alzheimer's Association at (706) 860-4599 for information on additional support groups.

All family members or caregivers of someone with a dementia diagnosis are welcome to attend. Don't forget to invite others who you think would benefit from additional support.
We had so much fun at Reed Creek!

We would appreciate your help in making sure that all important documents and bills are being sent to the responsible party, and not Madison Heights.

Families Helping Families
We want to take the time to thank our Madison Heights families that have referred other families to us! You are such a great source of information to others in need of finding a caring home for their loved ones; as you know what it is like to be in their shoes. As a loved one, you know the feeling of trying to determine which way to turn and are there to guide your friends or family as they begin this endeavor.
 
We have learned that your kindness does not end with referring families; but also extends to helping others who are new to the Madison Heights family. We have seen you allow others to call you to talk; to let them know they are not alone as you have also walked this path. This is very meaningful to the families as well as the staff at Madison Heights.
 
Thank you for your kindness as we are all in this together as one big happy family!
We are ready for the royal wedding with our home made fascinators!
