SUWANEE -- Autumn Leaves of Sugarloaf, a 26,000-square-foot memory care community which will serve residents living with Alzheimer's and dementia, broke ground June 26 in Suwanee.
"We are thrilled to bring high quality memory care to the greater Atlanta area," said Chad Anderson, president of Constant Care Family Management in a recent release. "Our 12 years of expertise in Alzheimer's and dementia care will allow us to enrich the lives of our residents and provide peace of mind to their families."
The $10 million center will have specialized training for all employees, use the most current medical research to help patients and create life enrichment programs. Clients will also have a chef in-house to prepare meals and work with doctors, a nutritionist and a dietician to create the menus.
"For our staff, this is not a job, it is a labor of love," Anderson said. "We are truly passionate about helping our residents and we consider them to be a part of our family. We try to create a community that feels like home."
Autumn Leaves has other locations in Texas, Illinois and Oklahoma. The community at 1455 Satellite Blvd. is expected to open in early 2013. For more information, visit www.autumnleavesliving.com.
