Senior Living: Why Not Monarch House?
From Monarch House Assisted Living
Are you or a loved one considering moving to an assisted living community in the near future?
Then why not Monarch House in Newnan.
Even during the pandemic, the unique construction of Monarch House and its features allowed their residents to really never stop living the ‘senior life!’
Here’s an Open Letter from the owner of Monarch House Assisted Living …
Monarch House has been coping with the COVID-19 virus by not only protecting our residents but also maintaining an active social program specifically aimed at keeping our seniors connected with each other and their families.
With only 41 resident suites and over 25,000 sq.ft. of community space, it was that huge area of community space which allowed our residents to continue with the variety of daily activities during the pandemic allowing for social engagement that is so vital to the health of our Monarch House family. Our residents were able to use the many features of that community space – a 1950s vintage drug store diner, an intimate bar lounge, a salon, a library and rooftop patio gardens that surround a huge Solarium where residents nurture flowers, herbs & seasonal vegetables.
Even with the COVID restrictions, our small family of seniors has continued to live life to the fullest … in fact we never stopped. Our residents enjoyed ice cream socials, daily exercise classes set to music, pinball, skeeball, billards, daily matinee and evening movies in our theater with its huge screen, entertainers including singing groups, magic shows, art projects directed by local creative artists and literary readings by none other than author T.M. Brown. All of this has been an enormous benefit in keeping our residents engaged and it shows.
And here it is in mid-May and family members are again welcome to spend time with their parents & grandparents in a safe environment that restores these vital connections.
I am so very thankful that we have an outstanding staff of caregivers that have huge hearts and give loving attention to each and every one of our residents. Our Activities Director Dez Ross has boundless energy with a heart that is bursting with love for all of our seniors. Kaci Fowler is our resident nurse that attends to the individual health care needs of everyone. And overseeing all of this is our Executive Director Andy Brown. I jokingly like to say that I must be a genius to have brought Andy on in this important position. Andy always gives extra attention to the welfare of our residents and staff, and it shows.
Thanks to all of you for your dedication to our Monarch House family!
But, don’t take my word for any of this. Check out some of our family testimonials.
“We rest easy knowing that Dad is in such a clean, cheerful environment where his safety and well-being always comes first. Monarch House has given us our lives back and has given Dad (Ray) an opportunity to flourish among folks his age. Thanks Monarch House.” – Jenny Baker
“While attempting to balance physical health and safety with emotional health was not easy during these unprecedented times, the Monarch House did just that! Thank you for providing my Mother (Lottie) with a healthier more fulfilling life in a family-like atmosphere.” – Tammy Worsham
“Thank you to the Monarch House administration and staff for making the very best of the virus crisis we’ve all lived through the past 14 months. You have done a great job following government guidelines, while at the same time remembering our family members are human beings with individual needs. All the extra activities to keep the residents engaged helped to keep them healthy and happy. Posting on FaceBook helped me feel in touch almost daily. The rooftop lounge, greenhouse and garden really helped Mom (Carolyn) not feel so restricted. We love and appreciate you, every day!” – Diane and our extended family
Monarch House is located at 299 Bullsboro Drive in Newnan, just west of Ashley Park.
