Suddenly having a loved one need full-time care plunges you into a world where you're a novice, learning for the first time of all the choices, providers, payers, complications, pitfalls, and confusion of growing old in America. There is no handbook. It's little bits of knowledge you glean from friends, other people in a doctor's waiting room, caregivers, online searches, and AARP magazine. You piece together a plan: not knowing what all is available to you, what to avoid, what's a waste of time, what's going to be the best random choice you'll make, or what is going to happen next in terms of health decline or improvement. You make the best decisions you can, based on basically no knowledge/experience in a chaotic, complicated environment.Choosing Delmar for my mother was the best decision we made - luckily, fortunately, unknowingly.It comes down to, "What will her daily life be like? How will she be cared for, when I can't be there?" No online views of attractive facilities or happy residents can tell you that. It's a leap of faith, entrusting your parent to strangers.So I'm going to use this space to answer the kind of questions *we* had - in terms of what we found *at Delmar* , not the other nearby Smyrna/Atlanta places. For those, I can't help you - knowing teveryone gives the same standard info online, on the phone, in person.Every day I visit my mother, so I think I have a good handle on how they perform.**What care can she get?**This is a little complicated. Because I actually didn't know what kind of care she needed. Or how to determine that. I just knew that she could not live with us and he longer; her daily level of need was too great for me to manage.I was struggling to keep her showered, dressed, fed, taken to doctors, care with medicines & for wounds, much less entertained, loved, and cognizant of what's going on. A full-time job it had become. Even when I'd hire a "sitter" once in a while, I was using that free time to sleep or rest.Delmar helped me understand that they could do the care parts, so I could spend my time with her in other ways. She went into Assisted Living. (I had been so afraid she'd need Nursing Home care - which is a big jump from living on the same farm for 86 years, to basically a room. Though that's what she had, at our house for the past 6 months.)It was A LOT of "assisted" - and has grown to be a lot more, in the past 3 years. They did all the things I had been doing for her. She was still quite ambulatory, but had macular degeneration so her sight was about nil, and was very hard of hearing, so even with aids in, required yelling and patience. They offered MUCH assistance that we did not need. (But have since then needed):- Giving medicines- Getting her to the dining room for meals- Introduce her to other residents- Take her downstairs (for events, beauty shop, appointments) and take her back up- Do her personal laundry and also linens- Explain what is going on- Clean her apartmentEventually:- Give showers- Make her bed- Help her find clothes/dress- Remind her of dentures & hearing aids- Change diapers/help her remember- Walk her to bathroom in the middle of the night- Bring meals / snacks to her roomAnd more.WITH A LOVING ATTITUDE, too. My mother is frustrating. But I've never seen a CNA or dining worker or maintenance person treat her with anything but kindness. Sure, there's the fact that I'm THERE and it could be otherwise when I'm not. But TRUST my mother would tell me!**How can I know things?"Delmar has been INCREDIBLY helpful in sharing what is available, outside of their own care - both free services and paid.They turned me on to how to get VA benefits, which halved her rent for us. Plus Medicare-covered podiatry services and flu shots. (Eventually, Covid.) And HOME HEALTH services to augment what Delmar does. Like, bringing in physical therapy, counseling talk-therapy, nursing visits.**Can we afford it?**It seemed SO expensive to us. But the other, less-great places around Atlanta were expensive, too.We didn't know how we'd swing it. But we DID know she couldn't live alone, nor could she live with us and get the care she needs.CONTINUED at mydelmaryelpreview.blogs…
Moving my 92 year old mother from her friends and her home for 60 years was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But the staff and residents at Delmar Gardens have made the transition so much easier for us. From the moment I walked in the door I knew this was the Assisted Living Facility for her. The big pink and purple flowers on the carpet, the cool light fixtures, the neon green and fuchsia furniture, and the pastel walls make the place look more like a trendy resort than a senior living facility. There is a "happy" feeling when you walk in the door. My mother has done so well and I'm so thankful for the caring staff that gives her so much attention and provides so much to make her lifestyle comfortable and enjoyable.
My parents were in assisted living at DG for five months. Some of the caregivers are very good and others are awful -- that has been very hit or miss. Promised services like laundry and housekeeping were not delivered without we registered complaints about it not being done. Promised assistance with ADLs didn't happen. My Dad needed assistance bathing and bath day was missed many times because "we're shorthanded today" was the explanation. The phone is not answered consistently nights and weekends (rolls to a message machine if receptionist is on break or running an errand). Delmar was quick to suggest we hire our own sitters and a third party agency to look in on our parents, so we wound up paying more than double the monthly fee with payments to others to do much of what Delmar was supposed to do. The facility badly needs refreshing. The carpets are visibly filthy. I don't recommend it if a senior needs a lot of assistance with ADLs. But this isn't a one star or no star review. Medication management was generally handled well. If a senior is still pretty independent, they do a good job with activities, entertainment, and food service.
My mother spent four years at Delmar in the recent past. Every year the quality of care diminished. Her last few months before she died, they SAID she fell from the bed and broke some bones but truth is she couldn't roll over to fall. The nurse said to me, "maybe she'll stay put now". A CNA told me she was mad at other CNA personnel because of what they had done to her. RUN AWAY. What you see is not what you get. You get nothing!!!
Finding the right place for your loved one is a mind boggling, emotionally taxing, sometimes feeling of hopelessness until after examining all the data and making all the phone calls you finally make contact with caring, knowledgeable, professional and compassionate people like Danielle Wells and Melissa Jones of Delmar Gardens of Smyrna who make you feel like family and you know without a doubt that this is it!! My mother is 90 and had repeatedly expressed her fear of going to a nursing home but she now tells everyone that at Delmar Gardens she believes she is in heaven.... everyone is wonderful!!

Having to make a decision for rehabilitation services for an older loved one is a very difficult choice - especially in the midst of a pandemic. Choosing Delmar Gardens for my father's care was the RIGHT choice. I initially based my decision to pursue Delmar Gardens because of other reviews, and they have been positive and accurate. I recommend Delmar Gardens as a place to trust for elder care.
The Del Mar staff in the assisted living section were very caring and went above and beyond for my dad, I could tell they had true affection for him. The front desk staff is always smiling and works to resolve any question or request quickly. They put on events that are engaging for residents and visitors - I'd love to go back to the car show next year. When we had an issue, management was on top of it working with us to resolve things. I would not hesitate to recommend Del Mar.
