November 2022

Mark Your Calendar Now!

It was wonderful having so many family members join us for Fall Festival in October. We are looking forward to some wonderful family events ahead in the coming months. Our Family Thanksgiving Lunch will be held on November 17 at 1:00. Cookies with Santa will be on December 5 & 6. Monroe Place and Washington Place will be held on December 5 and Jefferson Place will be held on December 6. This event is exclusively for residents and their loved ones. December 22 from 10:00-12:00 we will be hosting Storytime with Santa which is open for your family as well as the community. We will have stories read by Santa, crafts and cookies. We hope that you will consider joining us in the coming months as we celebrate the holiday seasons together.

Support Group

A Support group led by a Madison Heights staff member meets the third Thursday of each month at 2:00 at the Columbia County Library downstairs near the reference desk.

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 want to reach as many people as possible that need support. Those who invite a friend will be entered for a drawing for a gift card. 

For more information, contact Kelly at 706-364-8710 or

Walk to End Alzheimer's 

Thank you to everyone who donated to The Walk to End Alzheimer's and for those who came out to walk with us. It was amazing to see so many people out supporting this great cause, despite the weather.


A reminder that the family and/or responsible party should be bringing supplies for your loved one as needed. This includes incontinence products, wipes, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, tooth paste and another other grooming/toiletry items. If your loved one is running low, we will make a phone call to let you know.  If you'd like us to be on continuous delivery for these items or have your loved one added to our incontinence program, please speak with Marcus.

Home is Where the Food is

We invite you to share your experiences and your loved one's favorite recipes with our community in our Home is Where the Food is Program.

Recipe sheets will be in the office of each building or you can send the recipe to Kelly.

These residents enjoyed their morning at AR Workshop Evans. If you have not been there, you should definitely stop in for a visit.

A Word with Marcus

I hope this edition of our monthly newsletter finds you well. As we enter the holiday season, the just and common theme is being thankful for what you have. After being in senior living for nearly 15 years, I am thankful that this year isn’t similar to years past and that normalcy has returned. We are happy that families are visiting and without any stern restrictions. We are thankful that we get to host a Thanksgiving meal again and you can enjoy quality time with your loved one. We are thankful that you don’t have to drive in a parade to see your loved one’s smiling face or stare through a window into their room. We should all be thankful that we are on the better side of COVID and as a nation we should be thankful to be around each other and enjoy the company that sometimes we took for granted.

Happy Thanksgiving!

All the best,


Angelika visits us monthly and encourages and works with our residents to create their master pieces.

Clinical Corner with Laurie

Care plans are an important part of working together to make sure that we are providing the best care for your loved one. It allows us the opportunity to show what care and support we are offering to meet your loved one's needs. We want to share with you any changes that we have noticed in your loved one and discuss any concerns that you may have. Care plans are a great way for the medical team to work directly with the family or the POA to make sure that everyone is in agreement on the best care for your loved one. It is important for us to review these with the responsible party quarterly to ensure that the best care is offered to your loved one. If you are overdue on reviewing your care plan, please contact me so we can set up an appointment.

Our ladies had a great time making cupcakes for National Chocolate Cupcake Day. They also enjoyed tasting them and were kind enough to share with the men who were waiting patiently during preparation.

Danny Campo visited us for a concert this month. The residents loved hearing him!

Notes from Kelly

If you have not filled out a My Way form on your loved one during move in please connect with me to get this form. The My Way form helps me plan enrichment opportunities that your loved one will enjoy. 

Please take a moment to check in with your loved one's building to ensure they have an adequate amount of seasonal appropriate clothing that fit their current size. A hat and sunglasses are also helpful for when we are participating in outdoor activities. 

Pam, our hairdresser, visits every Tuesday.  As a reminder, to those who have been taking  advantage of the salon for some time, prices for the salon have changed. To have your loved one added to the salon list or for updated pricing please contact Kely at 706-364-8710 or 

As a reminder, please have your loved one's bills/business mail sent to their POA.  Personal mail will continue being delivered to residents when it is received. 

This year's Fall Festival was a lot of fun! We loved seeing residents and their families have such a fun night. Thank you to everyone who donated candy or attended and participated in this event!
