Image for Celebrating 35 Years, Expanding for 35 More!

I joined Lenbrook in 2009, just as the community wrapped up a major expansion that doubled our size and marked 25 years of service. Here we are today, celebrating our 35th anniversary and getting ready to embark on another expansion – one that will enable us to continue to offer Atlanta’s best opportunity to live life to its fullest for both current and future residents. 

Celebrating Achievements in Style

Image for Lenbrook Celebrates 35 Years

On a splendid fall afternoon in September, more than 300 Lenbrook residents and associates celebrated the 35th Anniversary of Lenbrook, Atlanta’s premier Life Plan Community in Buckhead, with an elegant and fun party. The lively event highlighted both the best of the past 35 years at Lenbrook as well as the community’s newest addition: The Club, a comfortable setting for coffee and pastries during the day that turns into a cocktail and wine lounge in the evenings where Lenbrook residents can gather around happy hour and after dinner.

We all know that ‘selfies,’ photographic self-portraits, are a fun way to capture a moment in time, tell a story and share it. While “selfies” are especially popular with younger people, portrait photography is a remarkable way to catch a glimpse of a smile, glance or feeling -- if just for an instant -- and reveal the inner self of the portrait’s subject at a specific instance in their life.

Image for Residents Unlock Treasure Chest of Life Experience for Associates and Interns

With more than 500 residents living at Lenbrook, there are a lot of life experiences available to learn from. That’s what Lenbrook’s Training and Development Specialist, Tammy Washington, hopes to share with the community’s associates and interns. “Can you imagine all that knowledge and understanding about life that’s within these walls?” asked Washington. “We’re hoping to unlock that vast treasure chest and offer the most incredible learning experiences.”

We are thrilled that Lenbrook and our community’s top quality dining options were spotlighted by renowned reporter Jill Vejnoska of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in her recent Sunday Living feature in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Upscale Dining Options Key to Happiness at Senior Living Communities.”

Image for  What Makes You You?
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you," wrote Dr. Seuss in his 1959 book, Happy Birthday to You! Wise words then and now, words which our chaplain, Robbye Jarrell, often likes to reframe and pose as a question to our residents: "What makes you you?" I like this question because it invites us to reflect on our past, look ahead to our future and get to know one another.
