Wesley Woods of Newnan in Newnan, GA joined the Eden Alternative Registry on January 24, 2019, as our first new Registry Member of the New Year.

Imagine heading south, out of Atlanta, down a busy I-85, and getting off at a massive traffic exit.  Continue down Hwy 20, as it gets more rural and country-like. This might be the very road you travel when visiting Wesley Woods of Newnan.

Opening 21 years ago, their community is comprised of duplex cottages and apartments to meet everyone’s needs, while living at home. When you walk around campus, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with mature trees, walking paths around a lake where people go fishing, a picnic pavilion, and a gazebo. They also have a walking trail leading to a wheelchair accessible labyrinth, where people can walk and meditate.

Inside, you will see people playing cards in the library. The specialty game here is Hand and Foot, which an Elder taught to her peers. Others gather in the 24/7 Bistro for a casual setting and a sense of connectedness. Large windows and light bring the peaceful setting outside to those inside.

Whether you are coming to live or work at Wesley Woods, you will be welcomed with diligence and will become well-known to others around you. They also have two guest rooms for visitors to stay in while connecting with their loved ones.

Relationships are key to the people here, and they love giving as well as receiving care. One example of the many ways they do this is a project to collect clean prescription bottles to send to other countries for use. They are helping ensure healing medication distribution. It is something the people who live there can all do, and they feel a sense of pride in giving back.

Come see for yourself why the folks at Wesley Woods of Newnan say, “The only better thing than living life to the fullest is living it here”.
