The professional staff at Annandale Village takes very seriously the responsibility placed upon us when a family entrusts us with a loved one’s care. Our aim is to make the admissions process as quick and easy as possible, and to provide support and help whenever needed.

Mandy of Annandale VillageAnnandale Village accepts referrals from professional and non-professional sources. While professionals are an important referral source, we welcome family and self-referrals as well.

Our foremost goal in the admissions process is to assure that Annandale Village is a good fit for the applicant, and he or she is a good fit for our program. Often when considering admission, applicants and their families feel a mix of hope and concern. We find that, whenever possible, prospective clients and families who tour our facility are able to address their concerns and feel confident in their understanding of Annandale Village. We strongly encourage interested individuals to call the admissions department to schedule a tour of our campus.

For admissions information, please contact our Director of Admissions, Teresa Clayborn by email or at (770) 945-8381.

The purpose of the assessment interview is to allow our Director of Admissions to determine if the applicant meets Annandale’s basic criteria for admission.  In addition, the interview helps to determine specific programs and services that best meet the needs and desires of the individual to be served.

The campus tour provides an opportunity for the applicant and his or her family to visit Annandale, meet our professional staff, and to address any questions or concerns.  The tour also provides the admissions team an opportunity to meet the potential villager in person, and determine if our initial assessment was accurate.

A completed application and other required documents are required prior to receiving residential, day and respite services.

Completed applications are reviewed by members of our health services, social services, and senior administrative staff.  Once reviewed, the team works to determine admission status and a recommendation for level of care. An application review takes approximately one week once all required documents and application are received.

Once an application has been approved an intake/move in date is scheduled. On the day of intake, a meeting is held to gather all the necessary documents required for the new resident’s file. In addition, a brief orientation is provided for the new resident and their family.

All applicants who meet specific admissions criteria of Annandale at Suwanee, Inc. will be considered for admission.
