Customer Reviews

Great Supportive Home

My parents have been at Southern Haven for several years now. I have never had to worry about their care or being loved at the facility. After praying for the right place for them, the personal attentiveness they are given is why I chose Southern Haven. My dad passed away in March and the staff could not have been more helpful during that difficult time. If there is any change in their health or any information I should know they are quick to call, text or email to Inform us. Transitioning my parents to an assisted living home was a difficult decision but it was such a blessing to know they were and are in such a caring place. I highly recommend Southern Haven if you are looking for a great staff that truly loves and treats each resident as their own family.

A Safe and Comfortable Home

Southern Haven has been. for the past 2 1/2 years, a safe and comfortable home for my now 93-year-old Mother. The large house has a lovely setting, four large porches, big picture windows, and a nicely decorated interior. The large common areas are arranged to allow for easy, undemanding companionship--very important to my Mom.
Director [name removed] and her staff attend to residents' needs with kindness, treating them with love, respect and patient understanding. They work with my Mom's (and others') hospice/home health team(s) to provide optimum individual care. Each resident's unique personality and stage of life are considered and accommodated with graciousness.
As a frequent visitor to Southern Haven, I appreciate the welcoming atmosphere. With a maximum of 13 residents, it really feels like family!
I am very grateful for this place and "the girls" who care for Mom better than I could at home. When I go out of town to visit my grandchildren, I can do so with confidence that Mom is safe and content.

A great place for mother.

Not only has our family found a place for our mother, we found A WONDER PLACE for her. The staff is not only meeting her needs, but does more than we ever expected. Mother is enjoying her surroundings in such a peaceful country setting. We were lucky to find [name removed] and her staff. It has given us a great piece of mind.

Caring, loving place

We were so lucky to have found this caring, loving place for my aunt to be cared for. [Name removed] the owner is the most compassionate and helpful person. We are truly blessed to work with her in the care of my aunt.
Transitioning a loved one that 90 years old to a whole new environment is tricky at best. [Name removed] has made it so easy for our family.
I wholeheartedly recommend Southern Haven, Dalton, Ga to anyone looking for a nice place to assist with your loved one.

Dear Myra, the way you love and care for your aunt moved me. Knowing the kind people like you support me on the path of serving the elderly. Thank you so much for the review!

Our family is so happy that we were able to find such loving and caring home for our Mother. Southern Haven is definitely the place to bring a loved one and know they are given love and expert care while they are not with family. God was definitely in this decision.

Thank you so much for the review! We are so honored that God has sent us your sweet mom to care for.

A good value in a homelike setting.

It has a pleasant, homelike setting. And a very friendly and helpful staff. It is a very good value. The staff was alert to signs of health issues with my mother. The setting is beautiful with rocking chairs on the front porch and a view of the mountains.

Safe and loving care for elderly parent

Southern Haven took wonderful care of my Mother. The atmosphere was very home-like. Other nursing facilities we looked at had an uncomfortable institutional feel.

We were glad she was there for her final days. The staff was always very caring and friendly. I would recommend Southern Haven to anyone looking for a safe and loving place for a parent who can no longer care for themselves.

We appreciate that you entrusted us to care for your sweet mom. Southern Haven is a wonderful place because of supportive families like you.

So far so good

The staff have been helpful and encourage mom to participate in some of the daily activities they offer. The food is good and they offer a variety of choices. The community is clean and the grounds are well taken care of. I would recommend this community.

Great choice!!!

Having our Mom at South Haven has been a Godsend!
Staff is so nice, considerate and very helpful to my Mom.
We couldn't have picked a better place.
I feel that she is very safe, well taken care of and they are making sure she interacts with others.

A great place! The owner, Sophie is incredible!!

Thanks again for taking care of our Mom!!

Making that all important decision for your Mom

Putting my Mom in assisted living was a big decision for our family. The staff particularly Sophie made it very easy and comforting. I feel very confident that our Mom is very safe, well taken care of and is enjoying interacting with all parties!

Rural Setting

Clean, situated in a rural setting, but close to main highway. My loved one was living in assisted living, and their behavior required a change to a memory care facility. I first started looking at state directories and was overwhelmed by the difficulty in selecting a place. I then went to "A Place for Mom" website, input some information and was immediately called back. I discussed our needs with the advisor and they suggested three places that had vacancies and met my general requirements. Southern Haven was the second facility that I toured and it had the qualities that I was looking for. The director was extremely helpful in getting us relocated and easing the transition.

A great place

The staff of Southern Haven were very caring and loving to my grandfather while he was a resident. He passed away and during his final days they were able to arrange hospice care at the facility and allowed us to stay with him in his room as long as the family wanted. They kept us up-to-date on his status and we could not have asked for better help taking care of him during his final days.

Friendly and Involved

When I volunteered at Southern Haven this summer, I interacted with residents and staff on a weekly basis. It always looked clean and inviting. Residents sit together in their recliners talking or watching tv. When they are not doing that, they are interacting with staff members, often playing games to enhance memory and improve cognitive function. At mealtimes, they are treated to home-cooked food (and based on what I sampled, it's quite good). Staff members encourage residents to do as much on their own as possible, but they help feed or otherwise aid residents who have greater difficulty eating. Based on what I've seen, the staff treat residents like family, and they are always inviting and friendly. Southern Haven is a good second home for family, and I think the small number of residents helps make it a tight-knit community, unlike some of the larger nursing homes.

Home Away From Home!

Southern Haven has taken excellent care of my grandpaw. This place feels more like a home away from home for my grandpaw. We couldn't ask for a better place for him to stay. The staff are courteous, friendly,and very attentive to my grandpaw's needs. To be honest, we couldn't do a better job ourselves. Anyone that is looking for an excellent 2nd home for their loved ones needs to look no further. Your loved one will be treated just like family. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Engaging, Loving Staff!

Southern Haven has been a blessing for our family. They have taken excellent care of my husband's grandfather for two years now. He is healthier now than he has been in years. They keep their residents happy and active. I have total confidence in the staff and know they truly care for the people that live at Southern Haven.

Excellent Care! Family Atmosphere created by workers who go above and beyond.

I brought my mom and dad to Southern Haven January 1st, 2012. It was my mom and dad’s 68thanniversary. Both of my parents, my mom 90, and my dad 89, were suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. My mom was not eating and drastically losing weight! The staff at Southern Haven took my parents in and even hand fed my mother until she begun eating by herself, gaining weight, and even getting up by herself! My father, a veteran Purple Heart receipt from World War II, has also received extraordinary care from Southern Haven’s staff! Southern Haven is not a typical assisted living! It has the love and care of its patients as a real home! The workers are not just paid help at Southern Haven. They are all loving and bring to the residents, as well as my parents, a family-like atmosphere. They also take the level of care far beyond a “just getting by everyday” attitude! I personally highly recommend Southern Haven for personal care Home.

Five Stars!

The friendly and caring staff and their coordination with doctors, pharmacy, family, and residents made my father's move to Southern haven as easy as it could have been. The level of this care has been outstanding an their patience and updates have been appreciated. Southern Haven gets 5 stars in my opinion.

Safe in the Haven of Love

We toured many facilities when we decided to place my mother at Southern Haven Assisted Living facility. We chose Southern Haven because it is a smaller facility ( they only take 13 residents). The atmosphere is more cozy and home like. The place seems very new, and is nestled on a knoll overlooking fields and a small lake. The facility is kept very clean, and the caregivers are kind and loving to all the residents. Southern Haven also is a very safe place for your loved one, since it is a locked facility. I was reluctant to have my mother placed in an assisted care facility, but the caregivers have put my mind at rest, knowing that she is safe with people who love her like she is part of their family.

The perfect place

Southern Haven has been the perfect place for my 98-year-old mother to live. The owner, Sophie, has created a safe, comfortable, and compassionate environment for the residents. Southern Haven does not feel like a facility...it feels like home, with a wonderful family atmosphere. The staff is caring, responsive, and affectionate. They treat the residents with dignity, and safety is of the utmost importance. Communication with the resident's family is prompt when a need arises. I am most grateful to all of the caregivers at Southern Haven for taking such good care of my mom!

Caring and compassionate staff

They've done an excellent job at Southern Haven so far. The entire place just has a very compassionate and very caring atmosphere. The facility itself is well kept and clean, and all of the residents seem to be well cared for. They also do a great job with the food, Mom loves it!

Need to bring most of own furniture. ...

The family and resident can bring their own furniture and decorate their own room.
We do provide the furniture if the family and the resident decide to use ours instead.
