What is aging in place?

Aging in place is the ideal way to grow older.

Enjoy the comforts of home without having to leave due to unforeseen circumstances. Many folks tend to age out of their current home. Don’t get stuck in a pickle when your care needs change. When you age in place at The Lodge at Stephens Lake, you’ll already be in the right place.

Aging in place allows for financial stability, peace of mind and higher quality of life.

What are the reasons for not being able to age in place?

Safety concerns: If the home has multiple levels, the risk for falls statistically increases. Other areas of the house may need to be modified to become accessible. The Lodge at Stephens Lake is accessible for every lifestyle and includes ADA-compliant floor plans.

Socialization concerns: Living independently can leave room for senior isolation and loneliness, which can lead to future health problems. The activity calendar in our community offers endless ways to stay as social as you wish.

Medical concerns: Most people will require care following an injury or procedure that’s not available at home. Later stages of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia will also require round-the-clock assistance. With so many levels of care available, we will meet your needs should they change.

Cost: Even if you have paid off your home, the cost of constant utility bills, property taxes and general upkeep can mount up, becoming a hassle. Forget about all of these financial chores at The Lodge at Stephens Lake.

There are some common misconceptions and questions about senior living communities where you can age in place. Let’s take a look at a few:

“ I won’t receive the attention I deserve.

Not true. Unlike many facilities, The Lodge at Stephens Lake’s caregivers and nurses aren’t overburdened. Every resident receives an assessment and is given a personalized care plan upon moving in. These plans can be dynamic as your needs change. We’ll always know what you need and when you need it.

“I can’t afford assisted living.”

Jasper happens to be one of the more affordable places in Georgia for senior living. Expect to save hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on your care needs, than what you would find in Atlanta, Alpharetta or Gainesville.

“Is independent/assisted living a fancy word for nursing homes?”

No, there are many differences. Nursing homes tend to be more like medical facilities. Their residents have chronic conditions that require skilled nursing treatment or are people who are unable to take care of themselves independently. Residents at The Lodge at Stephens Lake are active and independent at their own pace.

“Are senior living communities clean?”

Absolutely. In addition, our community is brand new. You can be the first resident of your new independent living cottage, assisted living apartment or memory care studio. Our team includes expert janitorial professionals who provide weekly housekeeping services and daily community cleaning.

“Will I have access to proper medical care in Jasper, GA?”

Jasper embodies the small-town feel of friendliness and southern hospitality. Despite being a small community, we are home to world-class care. One of the top 100 hospitals in America, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, is less than five minutes away from our community.
