Adult Day of Dunwoody opens to offer services to Seniors.

Adult Day of Dunwoody is a medical- model adult day health services center which supports the daily living needs of adults so they can live in their homes and communities for as long as possible. The center is open from 8:00am to 5:30 pm and provides meals, clinical care from a registered nurse, physical, speech, and occupational therapy, daily exercise, and socialization for its’ participants. “It’s not sitting services,” jokes Georgia Gunter, Adult Day of Dunwoody’s Executive Director, “Basically it’s a social club, but with supervision and excellent medical care.” In addition, Adult Day of Dunwoody is significantly more affordable than assisted living or home care alternatives costing between $60-$80/day. “We want to keep people living with their families and in their communities for as long as possible,” says Leanne Hymes, Adult Day’s Director of Development and Physical Therapy, “I tell people honestly, without lying, that I’d send a family member here.” 

One in 3 seniors over the age of 65 will take a devastating fall this year. In honor of Fall Prevention Month, Adult Day of Dunwoody will be sponsoring a Fall Prevention Event at their center on Wednesday, October 21 from 10:30am-2: 30pm. They will have complimentary fall, vision, and hearing screenings along with flu shots, memory tests and medication checks. The event is open to the public and the community is encouraged to attend. For more information about the event or the Dunwoody Adult Day Center, please visit or contact Jodi Firestone at 678-362-6190.
