More than 200 individuals recently attended the fourth annual A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab Living Well Luncheon at the Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead. A.G. Rhodes is one of Atlanta’s oldest nonprofits and operates three nursing homes in metro Atlanta. The luncheon is an annual event hosted by the A.G. Rhodes board of advisors, which is dedicated to providing a high-quality standard of care for Atlanta-area seniors. Proceeds from the event will be used to transform a patio space at A.G. Rhodes’ Wesley Woods home into a horticultural therapy garden specifically designed for people living with dementia. The guest speaker was Dr. John Zeisel, an internationally known expert on dementia care and treatment innovations, and the author of ‘I’m Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer’s Care.’ The event honored Martha M. Pentecost and her late husband, Dr. Mark P. Pentecost Jr., longtime volunteers and supporters of A.G. Rhodes. Mark Pentecost served on the board of trustees for more than 50 years and Martha Pentecost served on the board of managers — now called board of advisors — for 50 years before becoming an honorary member.
