ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The Benton House of Alpharetta held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 2.

A new assisted living care center has 55 apartments that shed any preconceived notions of homes for the elderly, said Jessica Carroll-Miller, the spokeswoman for Benton House, 762 North Main Street in Alpharetta.

The one-story layout helps make everything convenient for residents, Carroll-Miller said.

“Guests will have five dining opportunities throughout the day, so that they get to choose when they want to eat rather than them having to work by a schedule we give to them,” Carroll-Miller said. “Guests are also provided with a nurse within the facility and are provided with transportation to any sort of medical appointment they have.”

The facility includes a spa, exercise room and an outdoor garden.

Also at the ribbon-cutting ceremony was Kyle Diekman, a partner on the project.

Diekman has 25 years of experience in senior housing and said Benton House will provide a quality living and lifestyle.

“We don’t want them to feel as if they’re taking a step backwards,” Diekman said. “It’s a smaller community to give everyone a more personal feel.”

The facility also offers memory care services, providing residents with Alzheimer’s additional specialized care.

Reservations are being accepted for the facility. Visit www.bentonhouse.com for more information or call 678-319-3000.
