Our Culture

Budd Terrace is a skilled nursing center where generations of seniors receive expert care and assistance. The on-site certified geriatric medical management team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, activity coordinators, and a resident chaplain highly and specifically trained in meeting the needs of the aging population. The Emory Healthcare geriatrics program was the only geriatrics program in Georgia, ranked among the nation’s top 50 in a recent US News & World Report. The facility offers two primary levels of care: Long-term care and Post-acute care

A. G. Rhodes is a not-for-profit Nursing Home on the Wesley Woods campus. The facility offers traditional nursing home service and rehabilitation for geriatric residents. The staff consists of an attending physician, nurses and pharmacists, physical therapists, resident chaplain, social services and activity coordinators. There are 150 residents on four floors. In 2014, A.G. Rhodes began offering horticultural therapy and music therapy within its rehabilitation and therapy department.

The mission: A. G. Rhodes "provides expert and compassionate rehabilitation therapy and residential care to those in our community who are temporarily or permanently unable to care for themselves." Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods is a leading hospital for adult and geriatric psychiatric care in Atlanta and the Southeast. The hospital has 40 inpatient beds, inpatient and outpatient electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and a Transition Out-patient Program to provide therapeutic support after hospitalization. The interdisciplinary care team consists of physicians, nurses, licensed social workers and licensed professional counselors, and a staff chaplain working together to provide a patient and family-centered environment that is focused on our patients' unique needs.

The goals of in-patient units include diagnostic assessment (mood and psychotic disorders), initial treatment, and crisis stabilization allowing the patient to transition safely from inpatient care back to the community. The Residents offers worship services, grief counseling, consultation with families, and individual spiritual care services. Resident Chaplains participate on committees (e.g., ethics) in their assigned areas. In addition, residents provide spiritual care to the staff. Because of the length of stay, individuals in A. G. Rhodes, Budd Terrace, and the Towers are referred to as residents.
