The name of the nursing home was Starcrest.
Now it is Avalon-Starcrest.
The number is the same... 770-253-1475.

My husband was working there as a CNA when
they filmed the movie.
The stars were 'nice' but not overly friendly.
They curtailed the visiting hours during filming.

The house they used for most of the 'home scenes'
for 'Twanda', (not Jessica Tandy's house),
was in Senoia. The owner's dtr is a member of my
Coweta website. Anyway, hope you find what you're
looking for, but if they have passed away since 1997,
look on the www.times-herald.com for the newspaper.
