The Sanctuary At Northstar
The Sanctuary at NorthStar, located at 3250 Quick Water Landing in Kennesaw,
Ga., is a beautifully designed luxury personal care community. Warm earth tones
and soft patterns, finely crafted furnishings and abundant landscaped grounds
create an environment that surrounds you with comfort and elegance. Even in the
smallest details - linens, crystal, and silver - you will find The Sanctuary to
be a welcoming and caring place to call home.
The Sanctuary at Northstar is a gracious assisted living community in
Kennesaw. It is located directly across from Northstar Church off Blue Springs
Rd., just blocks from Highway 41.
Within this hilltop setting,
seniors find assisted living and Alzheimer's care that provides families with
unsurpassed peace of mind. In both the assisted living and the Alzheimer's and
Dementia program, there are achievement-oriented activities for each unique
individual. Believing that Alzheimer's and other memory disorders are diseases
of the mind, not the spirit, they strive to inspire and stimulate that spirit
every day with activities and excursions that touch all the senses.
