What is the Sterling Difference?
When you're touring senior living communities in the East Cobb marketplace, please pay close attention to the differences between Sterling Estates and the other properties. These differences are important to a senior's happiness and wellbeing. As owners, when we designed and built Sterling Estates, we did so knowing that our friends and family members would live here. So, as you compare us to others, please ask yourself if our features and advantages will make you or your parents happier too.
Larger Acreage - Neighborhood
We're located on 10 acres, which is on average four times larger than the competitors. With more green space, this allows us to have more sidewalks, porches, and plenty of parking as well as a lush courtyard and raised garden beds. It is important for us to know our residents are not next to a busy road in a commercial area. Because we're situated on more acreage and surrounded by residential homes, our community has a neighborhood feel and calming atmosphere to safely continue an active, independent lifestyle.
On-site Wellness Center
We feel strongly that the physical features of our community and the services we offer to our residents are what really set us apart. We designed the 5,000 square foot Sterling Way Wellness Center to not only keep our residents as independent as possible but also provide a hub of socialization for them. Sterling Way wellness includes an indoor heated salt water therapeutic pool, workout machines and equipment designed for seniors, Biodex balance program, chair aerobics, Dakim brain fitness and a host of other programs. We would love to share our case studies with you.
Award Winning Food
All senior communities will tell you how great their food is, but only Sterling Estates culinary team can boast about winning Taste of East Cobb restaurant competition two out of last three years (2018 & 2016) against some of the finest restaurants in East Cobb!
Couples Stay Together
We care too much about family to ever break one up. At Sterling Estates of East Cobb, if one spouse needs Assisted Living services and the other doesn't, they can continue to live together.
Emotional Support - Chaplin
We know that our senior years can prove to be challenging when experiencing life changes. As such, we have a full-time Chaplain on staff to offer comfort, counseling, friendship and a listening ear.
Dementia can be a component of aging. We believe that seniors who are independent or need assisted services blend well, including those who may have early onset memory issues. For those who need more individual attention we have our Legacy Program located in the 1,700 square foot Legacy Activity Center. Our Legacy Program utilizes the "I'm Still Here" philosophy of engagement with our residents which includes meaningful activities, reducing agitation and improving mental stimulation, which can all help delay any further decline.
Local Ownership & Management
As owners who have lived in Cobb County collectively for over 125 years, we are "hands-on" at the community level as well as deeply rooted in the local area. We are personally invested in our residents' happiness and wellbeing.
