Yesterday, we had the privilege of attending the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new, state-of-the-art assisted living facility, The Homestead. Located on Mississippi's Gulf Coast in D'Iberville, The Homestead is a newly-built, luxurious 40 bed assisted living facility. We are absolutely thrilled for our good friends at Generations Healthcare as they celebrate the opening of this beautiful facility - we know that so many incredible members of the coastal community will be proud to call The Homestead their home. Many congratulations to our friends Avonna Cain, President of Generations, and Jennifer Cain, Vice President of Generations.
Generations Healthcare has been operating nursing facilities since 1968, and Mid South is proud to offer comprehensive therapy services to all three of their facilities: Azalea Gardens Nursing Center in Wiggins; Greenbriar Nursing Center and The Homestead, which share a campus in D'Iberville. Greenbriar Nursing Center and The Homestead are conveniently located in D'Iberville, less than a mile from The Promenade.
The Homestead truly creates a home for residents - everything they need is under one roof! Residents will enjoy a variety of in-house services including physical, occupational, and speech therapy, hair and beauty services, and general healthcare services provided by a local physician. Because The Homestead is a relatively small assisted living facility, activities are highly customizable and readily available. Many common areas, indoor and outdoor, allow for games, hobbies, and crafting, and residents also have access to the beautiful theatre, complete with a popcorn machine.
Dining at The Homestead is exquisite. Residents have a variety of always-available options as well as access to The Bistro for meals. Coffee is always available, and the facility also hosts a cocktail hour. The Homestead's Chef Jeff Horgan makes dining on campus a delight!
The Homestead is truly a comfortable, relaxing environment, decorated thoughtfully with crisp whites, coastal blues, and tall, spacious ceilings. The hallways of the facility are named after local streets, and the walls are decorated with framed local postcards. The living quarters are roomy with plenty of space for your personal belongings. The common areas are cozy, and the outdoor areas are beautifully landscaped and maintained. Residents will enjoy a small garden outside the therapy department where President & CEO of Mid South Rehab, Steven Cole, helped Mrs. Avonna Cain plant the Meyer lemon tree Mid South brought as a welcome gift.
We are proud to offer an in-house, comprehensive therapy program at The Homestead. From fall prevention to chronic pain, our team is fully prepared to help residents feel their best. Director of Rehab, Anne Gomila, OTR/L, has a well-rounded background in occupational therapy, and she leads a team dedicated to helping residents live comfortably and safely on their own. The therapy team at The Homestead also includes Katie Allement, CCC-SLP; Anna Satcher, COTA; Kathleen Boone, PTA; Kelsi Weaver, DPT; and Deborah Mathis, office manager.
