Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are some primary differences between Senior Living and a Nursing Home?
A: A senior living center like Tranquility of Cartersville is for adults who do not need 24/7 skilled nursing care, but who may need some assistance with daily activities such as grooming, dressing, medications, and monitoring of general health... while being supported by trained staff members who ensure our residents receive nutritious meals & snacks, laundry and housekeeping services, and social activities. Age does not reduce the basic human desire for dignity, respect, and independence... and we encourage our residents to remain active and live as independently as possible. Personal emergency notification systems and access to staff 24/7 give our residents peace of mind.
