    Dogwood Gardens Senior Living is located in Eastman, a small town in the heart of middle Georgia. We are a small, locally owned community with a caring, well-trained staff in a home-like environment. Staff includes certified nurse assistants and others with certification from the Alzheimer's Association. Dodge County Hospital and most of our physicians, dentists and pharmacies are located less than 1/2 mile away. Other shopping is convenient. Our residents make our home special. They are as active as they want to be and enjoy our many different activities. Although we have a garden, each resident has their own private patio where they can have flowers, plants, furniture, bird feeders, etc. and make it their own private get-a-way. We encourage residents to bring their own furniture to make their room like home. We are very family oriented and invite family members to join us for meals, birthday parties and holiday celebrations. We invite you to come visit. We say "When you can't stay at home alone, make yourself at home with us."
