About Lanier Gardens



The obvious point is the “we care” mission that guides everything we do and offer? Lanier Gardens is a not-for-profit senior living community, which allows us to focus on what we consider to be the most important “bottom line”... helping people age with grace. 


Lanier Gardens offers modestly-priced, one-bedroom rental apartments.  One meal per day and all utilities (except cable and telephone) are included in the monthly service fee.  A number of apartments in Lanier Gardens are reserved for those with low and moderate incomes.  Those who qualify can receive rent and utility assistance from HUD (Housing and Urban Development). Market rate apartments without HUD assistance are also available.


We’re talking about our location. Lanier Gardens is in Athens’ tree-lined Beechwood neighborhood, within walking distance of grocery shopping, restaurants and a movie theater; medical facilities are mere blocks away. In other words, we are in the heart of everything there is to love about Athens.

As a Wesley Woods community, Lanier Gardens sees wellness as more than just physical well-being. Although “feeling your best” and “being your strongest” are critical and we address them head-on with our fitness, therapy and recreational activities. However, our bigger-picture, “mind, body, spirit” approach also means integrated programs and activities directly related to emotional wellness, spiritual wellness and educational wellness.
