Believe it or not, the average adult spends 1,400 hours a year hunched over a Smartphone. This constant "forward or anterior head position" (also known as humpback posture) often leads to unexpected problems. The most prevalent disorder is “Text Neck." I'd like to share some tips for avoiding Text Neck and several relief exercises that are quick and easy to do.

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.

Keeping residents connected is always an important issue for Lenbrook but during pandemic-related restrictions, it became even more vital. One of the ways connections were sustained was through technology called K4 Community. Initially, K4 debuted at Lenbrook in 2019 and provided basic functionality and access to dining menus and events. Fortunately, the updated version came out during 2020 and the resident response was tremendous. More residents started using the app and found it an excellent way to manage all the exciting events and information at Lenbrook.

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.
