This is a skilled nursing facility located in Tucker, Ga., less than three miles from Dekalb Medical Center. At their LivingCenter, they understand how important it is to return home as quickly and safely as possible after a surgery or hospital stay. For this reason, they offer short-term care in addition to our compassionate, quality long-term care. Their other services include physical, speech and occupational therapy and wound care, all of which are offered six days a week. Residents and patients also enjoy a variety of activities, including social clubs and group outings.
They are proud of their patient rehabilitation services. They offer Geriatric Enhanced Modalities (GEM), powered by Aegis Therapies. This therapy uses ultrasound, diathermy and electrical stimulation for a variety of treatments including stroke recovery, continence management, joint replacement therapy, wound care and osteoarthritis. These patients enjoy better mobility, less pain, faster recovery, greater joint flexibility, earlier discharge from therapy and an enhanced quality of life.
This facility also offers Aegis' Freedom Through Functionality (FTF) program. Having the freedom and independence to do for themselves is essential for seniors to enjoy a full and active lifestyle. To fill this need, this program uses Nautilus , for a unique specially modified machine-based strength-building program for older adults. This program of strength building is a highly effective way to increase an older person's mobility, independence and alleviate their risk of falling. Potential benefits of FTF include improved quality of life, improved body composition, increased muscle strength, enhanced functional capacity and enhanced joint flexibility.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Golden Livingcenter Briarwood website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
