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.
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.”
Let’s face it. I’m an “artistic type” through and through; I love the arts. Fortunately, I’m in good company. So many of our Lenbrook residents share a passion for the arts, frequenting the theater, symphony and museum at The Woodruff Arts Center. I’m very excited that we will celebrate art and life together in a very special way at The Woodruff coming up on Sept. 10.

Maya Angelou said once: "I've learned that people will forget what you said; people will forget what you did; but, people will never forget how you made them feel." My intern experience at Lenbrook has been fascinating. Most of all, Lenbrook made me feel like I had another home.
My husband Larry and I moved into Lenbrook this spring, and we are amazed at how fast Lenbrook has become “our home.” I’ve always been about “finding the best fit” because I have spent 30+ years helping high school students find their best college fit.
