What's Going On

Trick Or Treat

National Nursing Home Week

In observance of National Nursing Home Week,  held May 8-14, 2016,AHRC will hold a week-long celebration with the theme  “It’s a Small World, with a Big Heart”. We will celebrate by holding a good old street-style fair which is a great way to create positive interactions between residents, their families, staff and the community. We have several events planned to highlight this fair week starting off with a Mother’s Day Tea, games, booths, food, music, entertainment, animals, raffles and much more.

Psychologically Speaking...

As we grow older, we are faced with many physical, psychological and social changes. These changes can be challenging and lead to problems for an elderly person to cope with.  Depression and loneliness are considered to be two of the major contributing factors that reduce our ability to cope. 
While moving into a long term care facility can lead to negative thoughts, it can also be seen as a positive opportunity for making new friends and developing new interests, which we may not have had time for in our younger years.
What can help?  Socialization promotes increased physical and mental well-being.  It also decreases depression and improves quality of life.  Athens Health and Rehabilitation Center promotes daily activities, one on one visits, support from staff and even socialization between residents. 
Social Services works closely with our nursing and activities staff to promote positive outcomes, quality of life and to meet the daily psychosocial needs of our residents.
