THE BEST PEOPLE TO TRUST YOUR LOVED ONE WITH

What a difficult decision to make when you have to find a safe place for a loved one to live when they can no longer live alone or in their familiar home.

My closest friend suggested the Benton House to me because her mother-in-law lived in one of their facilities and she highly recommended them. I was looking for a safe, clean, well-run facility for my husband and there was a Benton House just several miles from my home. So, I went to check it out. My first impressions were very favorable. It neither looked nor smelled institutional. The general areas were all very pretty, well decorated, clean and comfortable. It was just like a large family home. The individual rooms were well designed and the cleaning services left nothing to be complained about. And it never smells like an institution. Their grounds and garden areas are very pretty and well maintained. The staff are, to a person, GREAT. Always so helpful and never too busy to respond to any request I may have for assistance of any kind. The staff is truly what makes this facility extraordinary. Every person employed at the Benton House in Covington is truly awesome, kind, and helpful!
such kindness and respect. I would highly recommend the Benton House to any family.

Benton House of Covington is AMAZING! Our entire family visited several facilities before deciding on Benton House....we all agreed this was definitely the right place for our Mother, and we were right. Each and every person working here has been wonderful to our mama! She has blossomed since being here and says she loves her new room. She is so much happier here and very well taken care of. She has nothing but wonderful things to say about everyone, but she really raves about Tanisha. Even when any of us visits each and every staff member speaks and has a smile. From the director to the nurses, assistants and even the people in the kitchen each one listens to the residents and seems to genuinely care for them. Thank you Benton House of Covington for such a wonderful and kind environment!!!

When my father was discharged from the hospital, the assumption was that his condition could not improve. What the doctors did not know was that he has a strong mind and spirit, a spirit that he would draw on to overcome his health problems. We chose assisted living with hospice care. The directors and staff have been wonderful in giving him the extra help he needed while maintaining his dignity. They immediately respond as necessity arises and will stop and talk with us about any new developments or concerns. He appreciates his independence and the staff encourages him to make his own decisions, while ensuring that he takes his meds regularly and maintains healthy habits. Our directors are worthy examples for the staff and residents, exhibiting a cheerful outlook and positive can-do attitude, and treating each resident as though he or she is the only one they are caring for. I appreciate the personal interest they have shown me as we chat or discuss more serious issues.I would like to recognize a few of the staff members who have cared for my father during the past ten months. They have had a direct impact on his progression from being bedridden upon his release from the hospital to walking around as a healthier, fiercely independent man. Debi offers my father more than medications. She sweeps into the room every day greeting him with a big smile and "Hi, Charlie" and he laughs (she is the only one he likes calling him Charlie). Often he wants to know the name of the meds he is taking and what they are for. Debi is knowledgeable and inspires confidence. She is so supportive and the two of them have bonded on more intellectual subjects. She has suggested herbal tea to help his breathing - in fact, I believe he would do anything for her! Darlene was one of the first to take my father under her wing. She was new to the staff, but she couldn't do enough to help. One might have thought he was her own father. Such a small person with so much energy; she reminds me of the energizer bunny!Ronnie was there when my father first arrived. He picked my father up in many ways. His happy attitude is infectious. I believe Ronnie satisfies my father's need for "maleness"; that is to say, Ronnie can fix the TV or the bed, pick my father up when he falls, and do all those "male" jobs. He does much more of course. Ronnie is my father's "Man."These are just three of many without whom my father would probably not be with us today. Thank you so very much.

I can't say enough positive things about the people who work at Benton House from the admin staff to the nursing care staff to the independent living and memory care staff. There is an attitude of care and concern that permeates the whole organization. I specifically want to give an extra shout out to the memory care staff: under the most demanding and involved situations,they manage to perform daily with care,concern,and respect for those in their care. When your loved one is confused as to her situation and where she is exactly,yet she tells you she's " happy where she lives",you know many people have worked hard to make this happen. I can't imagine my loved one being anywhere but Benton House.

We took our mom there for a few days while we went to a out of town wedding. I can hardly express my complete satisfaction with the Benton House & it's staff. From the moment we spoke with the people in the office the week before mom arrived, to those that actually cared for her. My apprehensive mom fit right in to the community, and said, to my surprise, when we came to pick her to go home "I like it here...I made a friend". I would, wholeheartedly, recommend The Benton House of Covington for you love one!

There is not enough space here to mention each individual that works at this Benton House but I can assure you that from the Director (who is amazing) to the cleaning staff, they are very nice, kind, extremely helpful and personable people. If I have questions or concerns about anything involving my husband's care or well-being the Director and Asst. Director always listen to my concerns and offer helpful insight and suggestions for handling issues pertaining to my loved one -- THEY HELP ME UNDERSTAND DEAL WITH THE ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH MY HUSBAND'S MEMORY LOSS AND ACTIONS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE CHANGES HE IS IS GOING THROUGH. It is so obvious that they care about their charges and the quality of care and quality of life that their residents receive in their facility. They are awesome and just downright kind good people. The facility is ALWAYS clean. The meals are ALWAYS good (per my husband - who was at one time a top chef in some of Atlanta's finest restaurants). The BH does a great job of providing interesting and enjoyable activities for the residents who are mobile. Every staff member from the Director to the housekeepers are patient and caring -- just really nice people! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY AS A GREAT SUBSTITUTE HOME FOR YOUR LOVED ONES.

A very positive experience. They helped in every way and with great patience to deal with a complex situation with a number of twists and turns. Mom was able to return home recently, but we liked Benton House so much we still go back to visit.
