Owner Dianne Byrd celebrated the opening of her new business, 
Lucille’s Resting Nest last month alongside her family and friends with a Chamber ribbon cutting. Lucille’s Resting Nest is an in home elderly care facility located at 3888 Saddlecreek Drive in Douglasville.

Dianne began caring for her brother and parents in July, 2008 when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and the doctors suggested she be placed in an assisted living facility. At that time, Dianne’s parents had been married for 64 years, and separating them was not an option. Her brother suffered from diabetes, COPD and obesity, and spent his last few months in a local nursing home. While at the facility, when Dianne would visit with him, she would spend most all visitation time in the director of nursing's office, dissatisfied with the lack of and quality of care he received, leaving him begging her to take him home. Dianne made the decision to take the steps needed to care for her mother in their home and her mother passed away last February, peacefully at home with her loved ones by her side, knowing she was loved and properly cared for.

Wanting to utilize the home she already had prepared to care for those in need, she pursued having a personal care home, naming the facility Lucille’s Resting Nest in memory of her mother.

Their services include daily meals and snacks, housekeeping, laundry services, medication reminders, discreet and dignified personal assistance as needed, all provided by their 24 hour access staff. They will monitor personal hygiene and grooming. Each bedroom has a telephone, sharing the house line with other residents as well as cable TV with large flat screen TVs. For entertainment purposes, Dianne provides a computer with internet access for resident use, puzzles, card games, board games, magazines and other activities. They do not provide transportation to residents for medical appointments but we will assist residents in arrangement of transportation .But most importantly, Lucille’s Resting Nest provides love and care for your 
loved one as you would care for them.
