Overall Rating 3.3 / 5.0 ★★★★★

There is no way I can say enough nice things about the folks at Bentley. The facility is lovely, but it is the staff that make Bentley the unique place it is. They are professional, experienced, and (best of all) genuinely kind. My 92-year-old mother lived ther during the last year of her life (she moved from a very new, very expensive, and pretty atrocious facility just outside of Athens where she most decidedly was not thriving), and the care she received in Bentley's Memory Care wing was absolutely first-rate. This summer she went into hospice and passed away at Bentley, and then too the whole staff and administration made a wrenching time far less difficult than it would have been had it not been for the staff's and administration's professionalism as well as their kindness and care. (Executive director Cindy Archer and Memory Care wing nurse Cathy, in particular, went *far* above and beyond what their jobs required; their compassion and generosity of spirit was truly humbling and overwhelming.) Suffice it to say that I recommend Bentley, with enthusiasm and deep gratitude, to anyone who loves their parents and wants them to receive exceptional care.

My Father is a resident of Rose Lane, the memory care unit of Bentley Assisted Living in Jefferson, Ga. I have been so pleased with the tender care and loving concern shown to him. When he arrived at Bentley, he had declined significantly from complications resulting from a broken shoulder. The combination of physical issues along with his dementia had resulted in an inability to feed himself, extreme transfer issues, and a loss of sparkle in his personality. I had resigned myself to the fact that he probably would be wheelchair bound for the rest of his life. But the caregivers have gone above and beyond what we imagined in helping him to regain some mobility on his walker. It is a wonderful sight to see him walking from his room to the dining area. They have helped him to relearn how to feed himself with assistance, and his warm personality and smile have returned. I find comfort in leaving my dad in the capable hands of kind caregivers who so clearly love him. Several even took time to read some from a booklet he had written years ago called "Things I Remember." They said they wanted to know him better so they could talk about things that had been important to him in earlier years. That meant so much to our family. His room is spacious and bright with an area across from it where the residents gather to watch TV from a giant screen, listen to music, or enjoy the large fish tank with colorful fish. We learned when my dad moved in that the management was in the process of adding many touches to Rose Lane to remind residents of the "hometown nostalgia" they grew up with. Many additional touches have been added since we arrived including lots of Norman Rockwell pictures, classic movie posters, and wall signs from the era of their early life. This type of attention to detail means a lot to our family and adds to a positive environment. Finding the right place to care for a loved one is difficult, but I can whole-heartedly recommend Bentley Assisted Living in Jefferson. David Settle

If you are looking for an assisted living for your loved one - this place is one that you have to check out. Both my mother and my uncle have been blessed to be residents at Bentley Assisted Living at Northminster, and we couldn't be happier. The variety of programs available to them both has been fantastic, it feels like a cruise ship that you don't have to leave port! The food that Nelson creates is wonderful, and even the Brain Healthy Cuisine with a southern flair is something that I enjoy when I visit (not to mention it has helped regulate my mom's blood pressure without medication). Amazing care, friendly staff that truly make you feel like family - this is an amazing place - if I could give 10 stars I would!

My Grandmother has been at Bentley Assisted Living for 4 months. I cannot say enough positive things about this experience. All of the staff-from administrative to medical to housekeeping have been nothing short of excellent. The staff are always so engaged with the residents and the residents are happy. If we have had any needs or concerns, they have been immediately addressed and resolved. My Grandmother resides on Rose Lane-the Memory Care unit. It is a locked unit and I feel secure that she is well-cared for and safe. The food is excellent, and the residents seem to really enjoy the southern-style cooking. The staff makes sure to make the residents feel special. On birthdays, they sing and I've witnessed them make special ice cream sundaes and even bring in balloons. The activity staff is great and does a great job of helping the residents participate in crafts, and also polish their nails when they want. The on site hair salon is nice, and does a wonderful job. I visited quite a few different facilities prior to placing my Grandmother here, and the rooms at Bentley are spacious. If you are interested in Assisted Living, I highly recommend Bentley. We have NO complaints!

I spoke to someone on the phone and they were so rude and hateful. There is no way my loved ones will live here!
