A new senior care center will be making it’s way to Thomson-McDuffie County.
“We’re trying our best to get it done,” Glenn Sawyer, owner of At Home Senior Living, said.
Sawyer, said there are multiple wings going into this senior care center. The first wing is the assisted living wing, and will have 32 rooms, and the second wing, for the Alzheimer’s patients, will have 16 rooms. The building in total will be roughly 37,000 square feet, according to Sawyer.
Sawyer said they will have an activities director at the center, but they have not yet announced who that person will be. The executive director is Shanna Dupree. Sawyer said once the center is fully staffed there should be roughly 35 to 40 employees.
According to Sawyer, one of their goals is to help the patients live out the rest of their lives.
“We hope to make it the best years of the rest of their lives,” Sawyer said.
Sawyer said they will operate under the state, and their anticipated date to open will be January 1, 2022, once they get all of the certification needed. The home office is located in Cochran, with another At Home Senior Living center being located in Jesup. The center in Jesup has 48 rooms, according to Sawyer.
Sawyer has no plans of stopping when it comes to moving his At Home Senior Living centers to new towns, especially small towns.
“I plan to do these, and I have other locations I want to go to,” Sawyer said. “I feel like small town America has been left behind.”
