Happy Holidays from A.G. Rhodes!
December 2022

Thank You for a Great GAgives Day!

Thanks to the generosity of our caring community, GAgives on Giving Tuesday was a success with almost $2,200 raised! You provided much-needed support for Seeds for Seniors, the Horticultural Therapy program that brings the joy and therapeutic benefits of gardening to our residents. These funds will provide supplies and services for program participants. Thank you for helping us provide the gift of nature to our homes!
A.G. Rhodes Resident and Former Delta Flight Attendant Gets Special Surprise

Marilyn Washington is a resident at A.G. Rhodes Atlanta and was recently surprised with a visit from TaleGate, a storytelling group that's traveling across the country to collect and share unique stories from older adults. In addition to Ms. Washington's close family and friends, and the residents and staff at A.G. Rhodes, a Delta flight attendant also attended to thank Ms. Washington for her previous service as a flight attendant.
Watch the touching video.
Ms. Washington's TaleGate episode will air in Spring 2023. Follow TaleGate's Instagram Account for updates.
An Artful Partnership

A.G. Rhodes residents had the opportunity to learn about artmaking and explore their artistic talents thanks to a months-long pilot partnership with the High Museum of Art.

Through the unique partnership, residents toured the High Museum, participated in art workshops led by museum instructors that came to A.G. Rhodes, and held art shows at each A.G. Rhodes community to feature favorite pieces they created. 

Employee Spotlight: Olivia Blackburn, RN

“To whom much is given, much is required.”
Olivia Blackburn, the newly promoted Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) at A.G. Rhodes Wesley Woods, quoted this Bible scripture from Luke 12:48 as a guiding principle in her life. Olivia says that even in the most challenging times, she knows she can handle it because her focus is on the residents and employees she serves.
“I love to help and reach as many individuals as I can, whether it’s a resident or employee,” she said. “The care must be provided, and the job has to be done. I feel I have the skills to get it done.”
