When my husband and I moved to the Athens area, we needed a retirement living facility for my dad. Magnolia Estates was recommended to us by friends whose mother had previously been a resident. We toured the facility and were very impressed with the facility and the staff. We chose Magnolia Estates and have not one regret! My dad’s needs were more than met with care, respect and attentiveness. My dad grew to love several of the staff who cared for him and developed meaningful friendships with them and several of the residents. Magnolia Estates is lovely, clean, well maintained and the kitchen staff makes wonderful meals!! Every April they host a family day and provide the best smoked chicken and several sides. Family members bring a covered dish and have a wonderful day celebrating together. A Christmas party is also planned for immediate family members with singing, Santa Clause giving a present to each resident and festive food. Great memories were made at Magnolia Estates - which dad referred to as “home”.
