Georgia Living Senior Home Care celebrates ribbon cutting

On Thursday, Georgia Living Senior Home Care held a ribbon cutting to celebrate a new service to the community, which will allow senior citizens to receive help without fully moving into assisted living.

The ribbon cutting was held at the home care’s new office, which is right next door to its sister company, Poplar Creek Senior Care.

“We are excited to cut a ribbon for this beautiful new office space we built to support the growing business that we have in LaGrange and Troup County,” said Per Holtze, the chief operating officer for Georgia Living Senior Home Care. “This is actually a regional hub for about a 10-county region, so this is a big investment for us … This is about our seniors. This is about the people that we take care of — the mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers of this community and in the surrounding communities.”

Holtze said that Georgia Living hopes to maintain its industry-leading standards with the new service, and he credited the positive reputation that Poplar Creek has as a reason for Georgia Living Senior Home Care’s quick acceptance into the community, a sentiment echoed by chamber members.

“We know Poplar Creek has a wonderful reputation, and we are so excited to have Georgia Living Senior Home here in the same vicinity,” said Leslie Traylor, director of member engagement for the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce.

Holtze also shared some of the services that will be offered.

“We provide anything from four-hours a week, transportation to doctor’s appointments to around the clock, 24-hour care,” Holtze said. “So, we build strong relationships with our clients, which are special to us and hopefully special to all of your family members as well.”

Representatives from Poplar Creek Senior Care attended the ribbon cutting and shared their excitement for the new service headquartered next door to their facility.

“We are excited,” said Patrick Crews, the chairman of the Troup County Board of Commissioners and executive director at Poplar Creek. “We enjoy being a part of this community.”

Members of the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce likewise thanked the company for investing in the community.

“This is a wonderful asset for our community to have you all here, and we are very appreciative of that,” said Marlene Rhodes, the chairman of the board for the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce.
