It's not just the place, it's the people. Our residents are pleasantly surprised to discover just how quickly Martha Franks becomes home.
Our community fosters an atmosphere of living, not retiring. An environment of continued service and purpose, not idle sitting. Many of our residents are drawn to our community because they have served as pastors, missionaries, or very active church members with a passion to continue in service. Our residents come together, pray together and serve together as God gives new vision and ways to minister throughout the retirement community and in the surrounding community at large.
“We both took care of our parents and are adamant we do not want this for our children. They tell us frequently, it’s the best gift we could give them.”
As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Martha Franks is equipped to support the changing needs of residents without requiring them to relocate. Residents have security and peace of mind in knowing their future needs will be met. Living options include cottages, patio homes, garden apartments, assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing.
The surrounding grounds include a lake with paved walking trails, outside patio areas, lovely prayer garden and numerous azaleas and dogwood trees…there is always something in bloom.
We have church services, morning devotions, and Bible studies that are open to residents and members of the surrounding community to worship and serve together!
Our calendar is filled with events and excursions both on and off campus. Enjoy dinner outings, cultural events and shopping or raise your voice in song with the Martha Franks singers.
Like a small town, Martha Franks has its own library, beauty/barber shop, bistro, gift shop, Chapel, wellness facilities and mail service.
Most popular of all is our lovely southern style dining and delicious meals where the friendships are just as inviting as the menu items.
