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.

Martha Randolph Tells Her Friends: 
“This is the only senior living community you want to move to!”

As she was getting ready for choir practice at her beloved Peachtree Presbyterian Church, Martha Randolph heard a slam coming from the shower. Her husband, Robert Lee Randolph, Jr., had suffered a heart attack and had collapsed, So she jumped in, helped him onto the shower mat, and immediately pulled the medical emergency cord to alert Lenbrook’s security and healthcare staff.

I start nearly every afternoon with a nice long bike ride. My favorite local trails are along the Chattahoochee River and the Roswell-Alpharetta Greenway. This has been part of my routine for years and moving to the new Kingsboro at Lenbrook expansion didn’t change that at all. You might say that my move to Lenbrook was a short one – I lived just a couple of blocks away on Wieuca Road in the same house for 55 years.

I am delighted to share some of my recent experiences with Lenbrook’s Health Care heroes who took care of me when I needed medical care and rehabilitation recently. This on-campus care for a period of six weeks, as well as the past two and a half years that include the time of the global pandemic, have certainly confirmed what a good decision it has been for me to move to Lenbrook, and what a blessing it is to live here.

Four years ago when my wife Mary Ann and I moved to Lenbrook, little did I know that my medical background and work for the CDC would provide a valuable perspective to our new community. While I’m not an infectious disease doctor, I spent 30 years with the CDC as the Director of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities. Currently, I’m a faculty member at Emory University and I welcome the opportunity to assist with our community’s preparedness and response to the COVID-19 threat.

As I begin my tenure as Chairman of the Board of Directors at Lenbrook, I'm actively thinking about how to ensure Lenbrook continues to serve its residents well over the next 50 years.  50 years ago this summer, man landed on the moon, using less technology than we now have in our smartphones.  What will the world look like in 50 years, and how can we make sure that Lenbrook continues to thrive in that world?  My older daughter attends Westminster School, and last fall in the parent/teacher conference, the Dean of the middle school said that they are trying to prepare students for jobs that
