An apartment on the grounds of Annandale Village has been transformed into the Assessment of Functional Living Skills™ Lab, an exciting new facility that allows staff and consultants to see firsthand how they can best support the Villagers’ independence. Not a laboratory in the scientific sense, this is a natural environment where Villagers can demonstrate their ability to handle hundreds of daily skills, ranging from preparing meals and doing laundry to telling time and socializing with peers to play computer and board games.
My daughter, Kara, is 34 and has lived at Annandale Village since August, 2013. She has Rett Syndrome, a rare, neurodevelopmental disorder that affects girls. She is non verbal, has no self help skills, and gradually lost her ability to walk during her teen years. She now spends her days sitting, either in her wheel chair or her recliner at the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing.

Nearly a third of the nation’s nursing homes are getting lower scores on the government’s five-star quality scale, a reflection of tougher standards for ratings used by nearly 1.5 million consumers to assess care at more than 15,000 facilities. Yet, Annandale Village’s D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing was once again awarded the highly coveted 5-Star Rating. As a result, U.S. News & World Report recently named the Center as the highest rated nursing home in the state of Georgia for the fifth consecutive year, and in the top 1% of all nursing homes in the United States.
