The Vivian T. Minor Adult Day Health Center

The Vivian T. Minor Adult Day Health Center delays the effects of Alzheimer’s or dementia and provides an oasis of support for seniors and their families. Adult Day Care provides medical staff for consultations and specialized physical and cognitive exercises. By socializing with their peers during the day, seniors are better able to enjoy quality time with their families at home. Their caregivers are enabled to have productive daily lives with the confidence that their loved ones are receiving high-quality care from a trained, professional, and caring staff.

Impact for 2012

  • 5,500 Meals served in Adult Day Health Center
  • 35+ Caregivers of seniors with Alzheimer’s given respite while loved ones had community support
  • 14 Veterans began Adult Day Health through collaboration with Veterans Administration

As a Fulton County commissioner, it’s my job and my priority to make sure we take care of our senior residents as well as we would take care of our own family. Atlanta and Fulton County have a rich cultural and economic history, and senior citizens are the keepers of that history. Our community is only as good as it treats its seniors. I am proud to say we live in a great community.

—Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, District 6
