    Quiet, safe place to live with lovely facility and grounds. One can choose to be as active as you want; daily activities in groups or by yourself. Organized outings are regularly offered. My apartment includes a full kitchen with stacked washer and dryer, full-size stove, and refrigerator. Helpful and engaged staff; very friendly. Proximity card access to magnetically locked doors. All doors locked during the day, except main entrances; they lock at 9:00 PM. I've really enjoyed living here the past three years.

    For the past eight years I have been visiting with residents and working along side of staff members in a volunteer capacity at Vernon Woods. I am always amazed at the different activities that the residents are offered and the high level of care they are given. The staff members know their residents' interests and abilities and provide each of them with appropriate challenges and level of involvement. Besides visiting on my own, the members of the West Georgia Community Interact Club also make scheduled visits. These high school students love to interact with the residents and look forward to their visits. The culinary component of Vernon Woods is a major draw for this community. The dinning rooms are well decorated and the food is expertly prepared and artfully presented. Residents are also given choices that meet any of their dietary requirements/preferences. Vernon Woods is a pleasant, upbeat caring adult community staffed with individuals who demonstrate creativity and sensitivity.

    My parents sold their home and moved to Vernon Woods a few months ago.It has been the best move. Everyone there is friendly and always willing to help in any way. Jeffery ,the chef cooks up wonderful and tasty meals.We can't wait for our time to eat with our parents. My sister and I don't worry about them as much now because we know there is always someone around. We wish they had moved sooner.

    My Mother and Father-In-Law call this awesome peaceful community their home. They have many friends and neighbors they enjoy spending time together sharing mealtimes, and playing games like Bingo, Farkle, Rummkub, Use Your Noodle, Bridge, Brain Busters, Lunch and Learn, Board Game Club Outings and Arts and Crafts activities. There are Movie Nights in the Movie Theatre, and Libraries for reading. There are special events and parties for every holiday throughout the year and families are invited and encouraged to join in. There are many special musical performances, stories and songs, and school groups come to perform their various talents and Cuddle Buddies where pets are brought in to "cuddle" with the residents. There are scenic trips, outings, shopping trips and even a yearly vacation trip that is thoroughly enjoyed. The talented chef provides incredibly tasty and healthy meals everyday and you are served by the best servers of any fine dinning experience. The pristine property has beautiful landscaping, walking trails, a pond with a fountain that is the home for fish, turtles, ducks and geese and a putting green nearby. Vernon Woods provides many exercise and wellness activities including Balance Classes, Yoga, Tai Chi, and Blood Pressure checks. There is an onsite Beautician, Massage Therapy, Podiatry Services, and Seamstress when needed. On Sundays they have an in-house Worship Service and throughout each month there are Bible Studies, Prayer Time, and Inspirational Speakers. There are Transportation Services for Doctor appointments, Churches, Grocery Shopping, and so much more. Pets are welcome. My Mother has a dachshund this loves belly rubs and many of her neighbors have sweet pets too. The outstanding leadership and entire staff of dedicated and hardworking people are more like family than employees! They are at all times respectful, kind, thoughtful, dependable, helpful, and compassionate. They have 24-Hour Staff and emergency response system. My family members have collectively lived at Vernon Woods for over 10 years and have been extremely pleased with everything! It has been a wonderful and exceptional living experience from day one. Vernon Woods offers Independent Living and Personal Care at it's finest! It's A Place Called Home!

    It is an exceptional senior living community with extraordinary staff who care for the residents. Vernon Woods always has great activities and events throughout the calendar. It is led by an exceptional leader in executive director Susan Burdick. Also, the food is outstanding which I consider a huge asset for any community.

    Mother has been at Vernon Woods assisted living for a little over three months now. She wasn’t very happy with me at first when I told her she was moving there. Now she tells me all the time that Vernon Woods is a good place to be. She enjoys being with other people her age, participates in the activities and especially enjoys the jigsaw puzzles. The staff are friendly and have become part of our family. They are always there to help in any way needed. Mother’s apartment is ideal for her. It has plenty of room and storage. The facility overall is beautiful inside and out. I am so thankful that LaGrange has Vernon Woods. I can relax and enjoy life knowing that Mother is happy.

    As the Promotions and Marketing Director for Downtown LaGrange Development Authority, I have had the pleasure of interacting with the Vernon Woods staff and residents over the past several years. The staff has invited me to be a guest speaker to update the residents of the latest downtown news and upcoming events. We have also partnered with Vernon Woods staff to honor their veteran community at Downtown LaGrange's Red, White & Blue Friday event for the past two years. This involves Vernon Woods staff transporting the residents to Sweetland Amphitheatre and providing them with refreshments while they enjoy our annual patriotic band program. The staff also gives back to the community each year by providing free and fabulous face painting for children prior to the LaGrange's annual Christmas parade. Through the interactions I have had with the staff, I have found them to be extremely professional and deeply caring about enhancing the quality of life for their residents. I have personally observed that the residents seem to be happy and well respected by the staff.

    I have been employed with Vernon Woods since its inception, and I could not imagine being employed anywhere else. It is challenging but also fun and rewarding to serve seniors with such a fine group of coworkers. I can go home each and every day knowing that I did something good for another that made a difference in their life, and that makes my heart glad.
