Image for Why Amenities Are More Than Just Beautiful

A resident recently commented to me, "I've been here eight years and Lenbrook looks just as beautiful today as it did my first day here." It made me smile as I headed into a budget meeting where we would be talking about the very thing that engenders a "WOW" impression when you first walk in our doors: appealing amenities. The real WOW, I’ve learned however, comes when amenities are enduring – when you are able to keep them fresh and relevant year after year.

I grew up sailing in and around the waters of St. Petersburg, Fla. Camping outdoors also became a favorite hobby of mine, one that my son now enjoys. To this day, I prefer to run and bike outdoors no matter what the weather may bring. Turns out, humans have an inherent inclination to affiliate with nature. It's a phenomenon called "biophilia," which is “a love of nature.” And today’s science confirms nature is inherently good for both our physical and mental wellbeing.

The new expansion, Kingsboro at Lenbrook, has created quite a lot of interest since we’ve announced the project in late 2018. So much so, that we’ve reached our first goal of priority deposits earlier than expected. Our next step is to meet with priority depositors throughout the spring of 2019 that will allow the people who have already expressed interest to select their floor plan, unit, and place a 10% down payment on their particular residence.

A year ago, I would not have said this, but what I tell my friends and family now about moving to Lenbrook is: “This is just so right for us!”

It was very hard for me to move from our Sea Island home of 18 years. Reid, my husband of more than 60 years and I left our whole life behind: our bright and airy home, our friends, our church, our doctors. I felt that I had to start all over again, rebuilding our life. I must say that I had to dip into a reservoir of strength and courage to make the move.

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.

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.”

Last summer I moved to Lenbrook primarily because I wanted to help make things easier for my children when and if I need additional care. But now that I'm here, I often wonder why I didn't make the move sooner! Atlanta's been my home since 1956, so in addition to my new friends at Lenbrook, I have all of my "old" friends and outside activities too. I have to keep a calendar to blend my Lenbrook life and my "outside life."

"Shining star" employees -- or associates as we call our employees here at Lenbrook -- stand out by their nature and tend to receive frequent recognition. But what about associates who work behind the scenes, or in less visible positions and provide invaluable momentum to the team and the organization as a whole? That's the delicate but critical balance we've aimed to achieve with our new associate recognition program. 

It takes the efforts of every individual to make a successful team and hence a successful organization. This is especially true at Lenbrook.
