Nine beautifully appointed and maintained homes are the centerpiece of the Annandale Village campus. Annandale’s residential services consists of a wide range of options to meet the needs and desires of our residents. Residential options range from cottage settings, to independent on-campus apartments, as well as, assisted living and the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing.
All on-campus residences are designed to allow residents the ability to live as independently as possible, while providing assistance when necessary to create an environment that is comfortable, attractive, familiar and secure. We want our residents, more commonly known as Villagers, to feel like Annandale is a place to call home. We are proud that both the Amy Somers Center for Continued Care and the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing provide residents with an opportunity to age in place, as well as, receive nationally recognized care, often not found for adults with developmental disabilities.
Each residential setting has its own personality and routines, where men and women share in daily life. There is a strong sense of camaraderie in each home, but it does not take away from each person’s own interests and activities. Staff members support residents through a mentoring and coaching approach, giving each person the opportunity to do for themselves as well as supporting one another.
Other services provided through the Residential Program include:
- Health Services

- Wellness & Special Olympics
- Recreational Activities
- Vocational Program and Training
- Community Access Group
- Medication Management

Cottages provide residents the opportunity to live independently while providing necessary supports to assist them in daily activities and tasks. Cottages are occupied by clients who need supervision and prompting. A Residential Service Professional is on duty directly after our Day Program ends at 4:30pm all the way through to the following morning at 8:30am. Clients either have a private or shared bedroom and have access to dormitory style bathrooms.
SEMI INDEPENDENT APARTMENTS
Semi Independent apartments are occupied by clients who do not need as much supervision. A Residential Service Professional is on duty from 4:30pm to midnight, and following midnight security staff monitors apartments. Clients have a private bedroom and jack-and-jill style kitchen and bathroom. The clients that live in this setting are expected to be able to do their own laundry, keep their room clean and wake up independently to get ready for the day.
Independent Apartments allow residents the ability to live in their own apartment, while remaining part of the Annandale community. Clients who live in these apartments need minimal supervision. The apartment has a living/bedroom area, as well as, its own kitchen and bathroom. For residents to meet the HUD subsidized standard, clients have to be making less than $16,000 a year in earnings or benefits. HUD offers up to $523.00 off of Annandale Village’s residential fees.
AMY SOMERS CENTER FOR CONTINUED CARE
The Amy Somers Center for Continued Care provides attentive care for our residents who are experiencing a decrease in independent living skills due to aging and/or characteristics of their disabilities. The Center offers residents assisted living services, semi-private rooms with adjacent baths, and a shared living area. Two Residential Service Professionals provide 24 hour supervision, seven days a week.

The D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing at Annandale Village provides adults facing increasing limitations due to aging or features of their disability nationally recognized care specific to their developmental disability or diagnosis, and is the only nursing home in the state of Georgia whose staff is specifically trained to care for adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.
