Happy National Activities Professional Week!


January 25, 2024
At Hickory Creek of Athens, Ashlye and her dynamic Activities Team redefine the meaning of joy and engagement for our residents. Their creativity knows no bounds! Behind the scenes, these dedicated individuals contribute to more than just games and crafts. From resident shopping to outings, and Secret Santa events to holiday dinners, the team ensures a seamless and joyful experience, making sure everyone is included. Even residents who prefer one-on-one activities receive that personalized attention.

Activities are the heartbeat of our facility, keeping residents active, happy, and involved. We love witnessing our residents thrive thanks to our incredible Activities Team at Hickory Creek!



Ashlye, Activities Director (29 years):
