Assisted Living

Traditions of Athens provides a high quality, home-like environment for older adults who require some level of assistance. Every resident at Traditions finds a unique mix of security, independence, privacy, companionship, and physical and social well-being.

The Traditions Difference is demonstrated by the relationships we build and maintain with our residents, their families, our staff and the local community.

The assisted living community at Traditions of Athens supports residents’ interests with a calendar filled with a variety of programs. Our highly-qualified care team provides the extra care our residents need by monitoring their health care in conjunction with their physician and helping them perform daily tasks.

Families will find peace of mind by knowing that their family members are well taken care of and enjoying life.

Anna Bates, Marketing Director

Anna is passionate about building relationships with older adults and their families as she guides them in making the transition into  productive and healthy lifestyles. She currently lives in Madison with her husband and two daughters. She enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, painting, and serving on the student ministry team at her church.
