The Phoenix At James Creek Description

At James Creek, the majestic Phoenix rises to provide premier senior living with an attentive staff and excellence in personalized care. Nestled in the picturesque Sugar Hill, Georgia and close to North Fulton, Cumming, Alpharetta and Forsyth areas lies our modern community with opulent amenities combined with a tranquil village atmosphere.

Our remarkable leadership team and expert staff uphold the highest benchmark of excellence in our premier senior living services.

Assisted Living
Assisted living provides support for those needing assistance with their daily tasks. Our assisted living facility is staffed with the most highly qualified individuals, hand-picked for their educational backgrounds, prior experience in senior care and expertise, as well as a deep commitment to providing compassionate service at all times. No matter what you require, we are dedicated to providing personalized aid that is specifically tailored to your individual needs. This could range from assistance with bathing, dressing or grooming and medication management all the way up to full-on personal care services.

Memory Care
The Phoenix at James Creek provides a secure, encouraging environment for those battling Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia to create lasting memories. Residents have the opportunity to make their suites feel like home with personalized decor. A safe courtyard and communal spaces, complete with a demonstration kitchen that allows residents to partake in culinary activities like cooking and baking, foster socialization. Our memory care neighborhood is home to caregivers with exceptional expertise in dementia care, adeptly navigating the joys and challenges of memory loss.

Respite Care
Caring for a spouse or elderly relative can be an emotionally and physically draining task. If a beloved individual has dementia or requires 24/7 care, this rings especially true. Caregiver burnout can be avoided by providing family caregivers with a much-needed break through respite care. Allow us to take the reins of your beloved's care while you use this time for yourself - from tending to personal health, recharging energy reserves and taking vacations, to attending work obligations.

    The Phoenix at James Creek is the best Assisted Living Community that I have visited. We were looking for that special place to call home for my mom and it checked all the boxes and then some! We have been so pleased with my mothers care and she has blossomed making new friends. Even during this difficult time with the Covid-19 virus I know she is safe and healthy. Thank you Phoenix at James Creek for being there for all of us. Our community needs more facilities like yours.
