They only hire certified nursing assistants that are licensed and trained to complete a variety of home care services designed to improve the health and well-being of you or your loved one.

Whether you need support once a week or every day, their certified nursing assistants can provide you relief and comfort knowing your loved one is in good hands

DePalma's Italian Cafe

In 1988 three young college students met in Athens and discussed the most pressing issue of the day – where to find truly great pizza? After much consideration the engineer said, “let’s build it”, the biologist said, “with the right ingredients”, the artist said “and make it look good” – and DePalma’s Athens was born! Over the decades the kernel of our endeavor was expanded until it encompassed the fuller concept that currently exists. With three locations, thousands of friends and family and millions fed over the years DePalma’s Italian Café stands today, still evolving and growing organically – the rarest of the rare, a truly multi-generational restaurant, a living breathing part of the community.

Grindhouse Killer Burgers

Grindhouse Killer Burgers served its first customer in 2009, inside the Sweet Auburn Curb Market in downtown Atlanta. The concept was created by by Alex Brounstein, an Emory graduate and former real estate attorney, who had been working to jump start the revitalization of Atlanta's historic indoor public market. Situated among seafood, meat and produce vendors, Grindhouse quickly became known as the place to get some of the best burgers in one of the most unique and fun atmospheres in the city. In its first year in business, Grindhouse immediately began receiving "Best in Atlanta" awards from local publications such as Creative Loafing and Atlanta Magazine, for its hamburgers, veggie burgers and homemade brisket chili. Customers lined up for their fresh ground burger fix, and stuck around for the campy B-movies and Kung Fu flicks projecting on the subway tile walls. In 2013, Grindhouse added its first brand new, ground up location in the Five Points area of Athens, with a rooftop sports bar and patio. In close proximity to the campus athletic fields and venues, Grindhouse Athens has become the go-to destination for pre and post game festivities as well.
