Caregiving with Love

Altrus is a residential service provider to the aged and developmentally disabled in GA

Altrus provides group and family model personal care homes throughout Georgia.  In addition Altrus is also a CARF accredited DD Host Home provider.  Since 1989, Altrus has remained committed to helping Georgians delay or avert more costly nursing home and institutional placements. Through Georgia’s Medicaid waiver programs, low income Georgians are provided with the opportunity to receive quality personal care home and host home placement.  All services are monitored by Registered Nurses.  All homes are licensed and regulated by the State of Georgia Healthcare Facility Regulation Division.

Our community-based services provide Georgians of all ages with the opportunity to receive quality care in an assisted living home environment. We serve in assisted living group model and assisted living family model home settings. This allows people to remain in the community longer and results in a better quality of life.
