Life Enrichment Center
Peachtree Christian Health plans to open their newly renovated and expanded facility in early 2019. This Life Enrichment Center is being designed to support caregivers by providing services that meet the diverse health needs and requirements of their disabled and aging loved ones. The LEC provides a safe environment to participate in meaningful activities and social interactions, enjoy spa-like bathing and personal care services, and improve health and wellness through therapeutic programs. We offer both full and part-time day programs, as well as overnight respite care services.
We understand that life is often unpredictable, especially when faced with the unique challenges of aging and disabilities. So we work to provide programs that enrich the lives of all our participants, caregivers and families. Each of our programs is designed to develop the behaviors needed to thrive throughout all of life’s circumstances. We incorporate throughout our day the ‘CHERISH NOW’ principles which encourage 10 attitudes that have been proven to promote health and wellness and improve quality of life no matter what life throws in our way. We invite you and your loved one to join us for a free trial visit and experience the difference that happens when you are able to “CHERISH NOW”.
The 10 “CHERISH NOW” behaviors we encourage include:
- Creativity – come enjoy old hobbies and seek new activities
- Hope – let us help you stay positive and brighten your outlook
- Expression – improve your communication and express your emotions
- Readiness – we will help you plan for the future and practice time management
- Integration – here you are an important member of the community and involved with others. We remind you of your purpose and help you keep things in perspective.
- Socialization – we help you develop and maintain strong, positive relationships through on-site visits and remote communication tools with the community and your family.
- Health – our wellness programs encourage healthy choices for your physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being.
- Narration – you have an important story to tell; let us hear and help you develop your story and find meaning in all your experiences.
- Openness – we strive to take deep breaths and live in the moment by practicing mindfulness and gratefulness.
- Whole-heartedness – we respect all backgrounds and cultures and want to help all our participants embrace their individualism by strengthening their core set of values.
Adult Day and Respite Care Services
At Peachtree Christian Health, we understand that individuals with health limitations want to live life to its fullest potential. Our day program provides caregivers a safe place for their loved ones with physical, health, and mental challenges to spend the day participating in meaningful and therapeutic activities. We are able to care for diverse health needs and can accommodate individuals whether they need a little help or are dependent on assistance for all activities of daily living. Our program fees are based on 5 levels of care which is determined during a free trial visit.
We anticipate our day program to include both full and part time enrollment depending on your needs, Monday through Friday. We will also offer ancillary services to assist caregivers with personal care services that include:
- Hair Stylist
Caregivers often need to have some personal time to travel and to take care of themselves. Our respite care service provides them the peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in a safe environment being cared for by loving health professionals. We anticipate having both private and semi-private rooms. Each respite guest has their own space for privacy and where their belongings can be secure. During the day our respite guests join our day program participants for activities and social events. Evening activities include games and quiet time for our guests to both have fun and relax. Our respite care services are offered every day, 365 days a year.
Heart2Heart Program and New Beginnings
As a non-profit organization, Peachtree Christian Health relies on generous charitable gifts from benefactors to subsidize our Heart2Heart Program and New Beginnings, which help to provide safe, engaging, and reliable adult services focused on keeping families together.
Heart2Heart Amenities – Donations to the Heart2Heart program help us ensure that participants are allowed to spend every minute they are with us surrounded by love. Gifts to Heart2Heart can provide for special amenities, such as spa services, manicures/pedicures, special occasion celebrations, and other items needed to allow our day and respite participants to feel like they are at home.
Heart2Heart Veteran’s Salute – We are grateful for our Veterans and their families who have often sacrificed so much — especially those who have served in wars and conflicts. Your Heart2Heart gifts permit us to honor and thank each veteran who becomes a participant in our Life Enrichment Center. With a Patriotic Pinning Ceremony that includes the ceremonial presentation of a pin, certificate, and keepsake quilt, Heart2Heart gifts allow us to salute your veteran.
Heart2Heart Veterans Victory Garden – Peachtree Christian Health participates in the national “We Honor Veterans” program to honor all veterans who become participants at our Life Enrichment Center. Heart2Heart gifts will provide funding to maintain the Veterans Victory Garden and pay tribute to the countless number of veterans who have served our country. Garden Pavers on this serene area of our grounds provide honorary and memorial opportunities to pay tribute to those who have served.
Heart2Heart Wish Fulfillment – Participants at the Life Enrichment Center often have unrealized life-long wishes due to their physical and health limitations. Gifts to the Heart2Heart program allow us to identify suitable “wishes” and when appropriate, fulfill desires such as communicating with a distanced loved one, a virtual reality experience, or even a visit from a favorite sports figure.
New Beginnings – Gifts to Peachtree Christian Health can support the specialized program, New Beginnings, which provides outreach, support, and advanced-care planning assistance to the community. New Beginnings partners with local organizations and groups to help provide caregivers and their loved ones the resources they need to understand, plan, and thrive throughout whatever their health circumstances might include.
The mission of Peachtree Christian Health, A Life Enrichment Center, is to support caregivers by providing a place of loving, compassionate care for their disabled and aging loved ones, that offers safe, engaging, and reliable adult services focused on keeping families together. While 2018 will be a year of renovation and construction, we anticipate opening our new and exciting adult day and respite care facility in early 2019.
