Alto Senior Living of Buckhead
Studios, 1-Bedroom Apartments
Assisted Living, Memory Care
Southern charm and luxury accommodations make Alto Senior Living of Buckhead feel more like a spa vacation than an assisted living facility. A hair and nail salon ensures residents are pampered daily, and the on-site movie theater allows seniors to catch their favorite films without leaving the grounds. There's also weekly excursions, jewelry making and painting and a scrapbook club. Ideal for individuals 65 and over who want to live healthy and active lives while receiving occasional help, this luxury community provides an on-site physical therapy room to help seniors get over surgery or an injury quickly and a sensory room that engages memory care and dementia patients, so they can explore and interact with their surroundings in a safe environment.
What Residents are Saying:
Reviewers love the dedication the staff has here. One noted, "I can't say enough wonderful things about Alto Senior Living. My father was there in memory care just a short time, but the staff became like family and took amazing care of him. The community, which is privately owned and newly renovated."
