March 2014

Update March, 2014:
A few months after building their website, I received an offer for a part-time job here and am quite happy to have accepted it. I may now personally affirm that everything in their presentation is true.

Duncan Community Residence provides a safe, family atmosphere that suits varied levels of independent assisted living. Many residents have been here more than a dozen years. Several have jobs locally and all have ample opportunity to get out for movies, local sports and events at the Simmons Center.

All needed medications are monitored by state-certified staff assuring safety and accuracy. 3 hot meals are served in a well-lit dining room and the entire facility is kept clean by dedicated housekeeping staff.

I am impressed at how often someone from the community shows up unannounced with a gift of food or some needed supply. As a non-profit, the giving nature of others here in Duncan and Stephens County works to keep their doors open.

To sum it up I am adding a comment here left after a recent inspection.

Facility’s Strengths
Long established community residence that is an important part of the Duncan community. Helpful and friendly staff & residents. Tenured & compassionate staff who also have a great sense of humor. A place to call home for twenty-four residents with a great support family.
