A Premier Living Experience
“My Mother at the age of 93 decided to move from AL to GA to be closer to more family. We visited four different senior living communities and were disappointed with what we were seeing. Then we had our tour at SCV and it was so beautiful and the people were so friendly. We had one more visit scheduled after touring SCV, but Mother said, “cancel the other tour this is where I want to live.” SCV is such a friendly place to live where the residents become more like family than friends. My Mother is having such fun at SCV and is about to celebrate her 96th birthday!!”
“My mom enjoys the community at SCV. Bingo, group exercise and meals with her friends are what makes her look forward to each day. Shawna is a rock star; she engages with the residents and treats them with dignity and respect and shows genuine concern for their wellbeing.”
“My father loves his balcony with a beautiful view of the Silver Comet Trail and watch the bicycles. The staff is professional and caring. Our family is happy we found Silver Comet Village.”
“As I walked toward the doors, they opened as if they were waiting to envelop and welcomer me into the next phase of my continuing growth and life. I felt safe. I felt happy. What a beautiful place for me to now call home- my new forever home. It is full of caring people, both staff and residents. They care about me, and they show love and passion for my life today and into tomorrow.”
“Management and staff are very caring about the residents and their needs.”
I think Silver Comet Village is about three years new. It’s very nice and clean. The staff was overly informative and nice. Everybody that was there was nice. It seemed like they were more of a family. They have so much going on. The facility is big, nice, and clean, and it’s accommodating. I did not tour the assisted living, but the independent area is nice. Parking is accommodating for the building. They have four floors and one- and two-bedroom apartments. It’s very nice, and I just fell in love with the staff. I felt like I was moving in, and that’s just how they approached me once I entered the doors. It was my first visit, and I was so impressed with that community. I met two staff, and one of them spent so much time with me. It wasn’t a quick interview or a quick tour. I was there for two hours, and she was so patient. I looked at the menu, I saw the dining area, but I didn’t get the chance to meet the chef. I came about an hour after lunch, so I didn’t get the chance to be there during the meal. The facility is beautiful. It’s so warm and so friendly. Even the guests were friendly. I’ve been looking for a place now for over a year, and I have never attended a tour where I saw activity going on. But, with me being involved in senior communities for the last 10 years, that was the most active participant activity that I’ve ever seen. Even in the senior community where I am, participants normally don’t do more than four or five at each activity, but they had a full house yesterday for that. That impressed me yesterday, the participation in the activities that they had going. I was there for two activities. They had a performance of someone to entertain, and he was singing. And the second one was bingo, and both of them was full house participant to me from what I’ve seen. It’s just a beautiful facility.
When looking for a place for senior independent living, you will not find one better than Silver Comet Village. The staff is extremely professional and patient. They are very available and prompt with responses. They are knowledgeable about all of the options available. There were no hidden surprises or fees. There are a wide variety of daily activities that are all optional. The facilities have lots of common areas for residents to spread out and socialize. The units themselves are very modern and clean. It is like being on vacation all the time.
They schedule moving day so that there are not multiple people moving in on the same day. The benefit of this attention to detail makes the elevators and wagons available for the use of the new resident.
My father was very anxious about the change in lifestyle. The staff and residents have made him feel very welcome. Everyone is friendly. The management is also willing to listen to concerns in an effort to provide the best living experience they can for their residents. We are very happy we found Silver Comet Village.
SCV has been an amazing home for my Mother. The staff goes over and beyond taking care of the residents. The residents are so friendly and truly care for one another. SCV is more than just a place to live, it’s a building that houses a family.
Silver Commit Village is a hidden gem 💎. The pictures online were very beautiful ❤️. So when I called and received the information I rushed up there to secure my mom’s new apartment. We love the Silver Commit access. The community is in a perfect location with beautiful apartment views. Everything is in style and up to date. The staff get to know you and look out for you immediately. The residents do exactly the same. Everyone looks out for everyone. I love the activities and the schedule for my mom to keep busy with her new friends. My mom was very nervous to go at first but she immediately liked it and was eager to get to know everyone. You want quality for the price there is not a better place! I did a very thorough search and jumped on joining Silver Commit Village immediately. Ginger was a dream come true for my family. She helped us more than anyone else offered to at the other communities I went to. She was personable and took extra time to make sure we were satisfied. I had felt like other communities were interested in securing my mom’s paycheck instead of helping my mom have a happy independent life. Gerald gave my mom an excellent tour and showed my mom how everything operated. He also helped us through out the day while we moved her in. Gus was very attentive to all the residents and was very committed to his job. Hattie immediately befriended me and my mom and was already looking out for her before she arrived! The residents made sure I didn’t have to wait long to speak with someone and even came to check on us as we moved in. You can’t fake things like this. It feels like a family. I called my mom today because I was missing her but she was busy with her new friends and would call me later ☺️. It’s hard to choose life choices for aging parents. The relief I felt after only just a few exchanges with the people involved at this community is great. Don’t skip this one! My mom was previously at a similar community a few years back that my mom thrived at! But we are so happy to have found an even better solution for her. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it but I was thanks to Ginger! I can’t wait to see how my mom grows with everything Silver Commit Village offers. My family and I look forward to coming every Saturday to visit with our kids and enjoy the outdoors area with the huge grill and fireplace options! We are ready!! Thanks so much for caring about the best interest of the residents and there families. It is rare these days.
Silver Comet Village is a wonderful place. I was looking for a place for my mother. I walked in and met Mary Jasper. She made me feel welcomed. She gave me a tour of the building and the apartments that were available. She was knowledgeable and personable. The nurse on staff Shirley was also a great influence on my decision to choose SCV My mom has been there a few weeks now. She loves it and they love her. When I visit the entire staff is welcoming. Thank you Mary for making a difficult decision to place my mother an easy and pleasant experience.
