Constructed in 2011 within 58 acres of beautiful wooded surroundings, The Laurels of Athens is a 111-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility with 99 private rooms with private bathrooms, and an additional 12 apartment-style private rehabilitation suites. We are located within two miles of the local hospital and the heart of Athens, and offer easy access to U.S. Route 33.
The Laurels of Athens welcomes both short-term and extended-stay guests. Our short-term rehabilitation programs include physical, occupational and speech therapy and are designed to help our guests move from hospital to home as quickly as possible. Our therapy staff works closely with guests' personal physicians to design customized rehab care plans. Guests participate in rehabilitation within our state-of-the-art rehab gym, featuring 2,000 sq. ft. of space. When you graduate from your inpatient stay, you can continue to receive rehab from your our therapists through our outpatient or home care program.
We also offer our extended-stay guests the most extensive medical care available outside of a hospital setting. We also recognize that a good quality of life must include activity and meaningful relationships as well as good health, so we offer a full schedule of activities, events, and holiday celebrations that often include guests' families. Many of these activities will take place in our expansive activity room, with more than enough room for friends and family. During free time, guests are invited to enjoy our enormous courtyard or relax in one of the many guest lounges located throughout the facility.
Underlying all we do for our guests is our guiding philosophy, The Laurel Way of Caring. This special way of thinking, reflected by every member of our carefully selected staff, ensures that every guest will be offered respect, dignity, companionship, and compassion every day.
