At GHA, we offer numerous classes and activities to
families, in addition we enable disabled and elderly
residents to remain living independently and/or to age in
place. These include nutritional and health classes;
exercise groups; medical, hearing and prescription meds
screenings; defensive driving; financial literacy as well as
classes about issues such as identity fraud, etc.
We have computer labs for
resident use and offer computer classes with one on one
computer tutors. These are also used for job search and
resume building as well as email access and to use as a
medium for contacting family members.
We partner with various Home
Health Care agencies and churches to provide assistance to
our residents with household duties and yard work. We host
family activities in partnership with the Georgetown Church
of Christ, the First Baptist Church of Georgetown,
Celebration Church and annually partner with the Boys and
Girls Club as well as the Stonehaven Senior Center to
celebrate holidays, new resident dinners, Neighborhood night
out events and other activities.
It is very exciting to me
that our residents have more advantages than offered at any
other rental units in Georgetown.
