Groundbreaking on Newest Phase

August 22, 2018

Senior living community owner and operator Sterling Estates has announced the start of construction of the latest phase in its retirement neighborhood, Sterling Estates of West Cobb.

The company will have a groundbreaking ceremony and reception on Aug. 29 at 9:30 a.m. at 3165 Dallas Highway in Marietta.

The new Stratford II residence will include 29 one- and two-bedroom apartments and a large clubhouse with a unique dining venue, The Club. The clubhouse will have indoor and outdoor seating and a bar for socializing. It will also include areas for art, sculpturing and woodworking as well as a technology/media center.

“Well over half of our residents live independently in their cottage or apartment home and we have provided them a vast array of amenities and services to enjoy with a variety of dining options, a large Sterling Way Wellness center, resident garden, and even a bocce ball court,” said Mike Brown, Sterling Estates managing partner. “Our new Stratford II residence with its clubhouse will provide additional amenities that we believe our residents will utilize and enjoy as they go about their daily lives.”

Sterling Estates new Memory Care Community, The Grande, was designed in consultation with Dr. John Zeisel of the Hearthstone Institute. The single story building with 36 resident suites will have as its cornerstones three specifically placed “engagement centers” as well as a secure central interior therapeutic garden and courtyard.

“The design of the building complements the way we care for our residents utilizing the Hearthstone Institute ‘I’m Still Here’ philosophy of memory care,” Brown said. “We were determined to deliver to greater Atlanta a cutting-edge, evidence-based memory care center and we believe through Dr. Zeisel and his Hearthstone Institute approach we have done that.”

Sterling Estates will be one of only 20 I’m Still Here Centers of Excellence in the country which use this approach to those with cognitive challenges.

The 30-acre retirement community opened in late August 2016 and currently has 180 residents living throughout the neighborhood.

Hero of Havoc

April 26, 2018

The first director of the Office of Strategic Services at the start of World War II was looking for a unique combination of character traits to outfit a new team of combatants during World War II.

“We need Ph.D.s that can win a bar fight.”

Gen. William “Wild Bill” Donovan’s description was apt as he began assembling a force that could outwit and outmuscle the enemy.

In Marietta, Frank A. Gleason fit the bill.

Fresh out of Penn State University with a degree in chemical engineering, Gleason was young, fit and ready to serve his country fighting the Empire of Japan.

On his 24th birthday — Sept. 24, 1944 — he found himself in the plains of southern China as commander of a small band of troops whose mission was to create havoc and hamper the Japanese troops stationed in that country during WWII.

Gleason said that today his unit would be regarded as a “trained band of terrorists.” In carrying out their mission, the men of Gleason’s OSS command blew up more than 100 bridges, wrecked rail lines, destroyed communication systems and caused general destruction for the Japanese Army.

Seventy-four years later, these heroes received their medals. There are fewer than 100 members from the OSS ranks left. Gleason, 97, a resident of Sterling Estates of West Cobb, is among the latest to receive Congressional Gold Medal — the highest civilian honor that can bestowed.

After two years of discussions in Washington, House Speaker Paul Ryan officially presented the medal to the Office of Strategic Services on March 21.

“I got a phone call from the president of the OSS Society, Charlie Pinck, that he was sending me my medal through the mail. I received it a couple weeks ago,” said Gleason. “I am extremely honored and never expected anything like this. I would say it was the icing on the cake for my 30 years of military service in the United States Army.”

Gleason was recruited into the OSS by fellow Penn State University Phi Kappa Psi fraternity brother Charlie Parkin. After being trained at the OSS training camp in the Catoctin Mountains in Maryland, he was sent to England to demolition school.

The OSS was dissolved after World War II, and Gleason returned to the Army’s Corps of Engineers. He served during the Korean War, building anti-aircraft installations in Alaska over fears that the Russians might attack there.

During the Vietnam War, Gleason was in charge of an Army supply installation at Cam Ranh Bay located on an inlet on the South China Sea. His crew sent supplies to 49,000 troops fighting the enemy in the jungles of Vietnam.

“I would spend $82 million a month on supplies to support my troops,” said Gleason.

The OSS, which is the predecessor of the CIA, recruited an interesting mix of members. Julia Child, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg, Western film director John Ford and German born actress and singer Marlene Dietrich all served in the spy agency.

The exploits of the clandestine crew was the topic of Teddy White’s book, “The Mountain Road.” The book later became a movie in 1960 starring Jimmy Stewart who played a character based on Gleason’s OSS service. Gleason served as a technical adviser for the film.

He retired from Army in 1971 as a full colonel.

“Who would ever dream that at 97 years old, I would get a Congressional Gold Medal,” he said. “I am over-awed.”

Durham History Students Are Moved by Resident Stories

December 10, 2017

Durham Middle School history students from Thomas Panter’s eighth grade classes embarked on a project several weeks ago aimed at telling the remarkable stories of Cobb’s seniors.

The volunteer assignment, which won’t be graded, pairs groups of Panter’s advanced students with senior citizens from Sterling Estates, a West Cobb senior living community. Some of the subjects include veterans of World War II and the Korean War, a lifelong teacher’s advocate and a captain of the University of Georgia’s 1953 football team.

They shared their life stories with the students, who are putting together a package called “Our Community Heroes” they will present to the subjects and their families in February.

Panter said the purpose of his project was to give his students the chance to tell some of these moving stories and document local history before it’s too late, but connections they made ended up giving the students a new-found appreciation for the generations before them.

The assignment was well-received by the older Cobb residents, who opened up and built friendships with the youngsters neither group will soon forget.

Other cultures around the world hold their older generations in the highest esteem, Panter told his class Wednesday afternoon, gesturing above his head to drive home his point.

“And for some reason, we don’t. We’ve lost that. And we need them so desperately now. We need their wisdom, especially their humility,” Panter said.

Panter, who is in his 16th year teaching at Durham, said there is a disconnect between America’s seniors and what he refers to as “the selfie generation.”

“Just watching their faces, some of them were in tears,” he said of his students, who ended up spending hours learning everything they could about their new-found friends. “You can see a connection was made between a humble generation and a generation that posts to social media every second of the day.”

The general theme reported back by the students during their progress update Wednesday afternoon was that the older people they spoke to were so humble it was often difficult to get them to open up and speak freely about themselves and what they accomplished.

They wanted to talk about others, the students said. They wanted to highlight the accomplishments of those they knew rather than brag about themselves.

“She never wanted to talk about herself,” Brooke Warner said of Helen Campbell, a 98-year-old Marine veteran who served for two years in WWII. “She was so selfless. She didn’t join the war for herself. She did it for others. She wanted to help everybody else.”

Campbell said Thursday she was delighted to meet the young ladies who interviewed her and get to know them.

She had completed college in San Francisco and was working full time as a fifth grade teacher when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. formally entered the war, she said. She and a friend walked past a series of recruitment flyers one day, and something compelled her to enlist. She served from 1943 until 1945, reaching the rank of sergeant and even met her husband while in the military.

When asked why she chose the Marines instead of another branch of the military, Campbell replied: “Because they’re the best — and also the best looking.”

Students Claire Hintze and Hannah Ferris spoke to Lloyd Menin, an 85-year-old Korean War photographer. They said they were amazed by the quality of his work, which offered behind-the-scenes glimpses into the lives of the American soldiers fighting in Korea.

“Talking to him, it was different than anything I’ve ever done before,” Hintze said. “I’ve always been a very shy person, but being able to talk with someone from another generation — from another world, really — was a very awesome experience to have.”

She said she learned quickly that those raised in Hintze’s generation had vastly different values than the ones held by her and her friends, who she said were often selfobsessed.

“We’re all so focused on what we can do,” she said. “Talking to someone who has lived through all these amazing things was like talking to a piece of history.”

Needle Club Sewn Together for a Cause

June 21, 2017

The Kiwanis Club of Lost Mountain and the Sterling Estates of West Cobb Needle Club got together earlier this spring on a project to make dolls for Cobb Emergency Services. The ladies of the needle club constructed 52 dolls, each with a Kiwanis label, to be used as possible evidence by police and fire personnel when given to children needing comfort. The dolls were presented to the Kiwanis Club in late May. From left are Josephine Lauer, Kathleen O’Shaughnessy, Ruth Buehler, Janet Eveland, Beverly Page and Margie Brown.

  About Sterling Estates

We build with more than bricks and mortar - we build Sterling Estates senior living communities with a commitment to provide the finest lifestyle, services and care for our residents. Our desire to build and operate these communities came out of a need to offer our own family members better lives, and we strive to do the same for you and yours.

Current Sterling Estates are located in East Cobb and West Cobb, with a future development planned in Cumming, Georgia. Each of our communities offers exceptional living accommodations, myriad opportunities for continued happiness, and a warm, friendly environment conducive to making new friends and enjoying family. At each of our communities, we uphold what we feel are life's most important values: service, faith, dependability, and the one special feeling that everyone in the world holds for the members of their families - hope.

Hope is the common thread that, throughout the ages, has inspired people to pursue the best qualities of life. Family and hope--those are the qualities that make a life Sterling.

 

Spring Update

May 5, 2016

Model Cottages Open - Spring 2016 Update from Sterling Estates of West Cobb



 

SIGN UP FOR YOUR PRIVATE MODEL HOME TOUR

We opened our 3 model homes this week, 2 of which are fully furnished. Many of the tours that we have now scheduled are from individuals who have already visited our East Cobb community or we have met with previously in their home or at Gabriel’s. We can still do any of those but more importantly our Leasing Center along with 3 model residences are now open at Sterling Estates of West Cobb! Come see us for a private tour by booking an appointment now online, or calling us at 770-255-7000 to schedule a tour.

 

FIRST VISIT, FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Our very first tour was with Anne & David Strand who decided to lease one of our Dogwood cottages and these were their first impressions:

 

Anne Strand:  “Really impressed with the quality of the construction, finishings and beautiful color schemes.  Sterling has thought of all of the things that are important to seniors - so many things to make a comfortable living environment.”  

 

David Strand:  “We are really looking forward to our move to Sterling Estates.  We currently have a home less than 5 miles away and have seen all the wonderful things about Sterling’s new community and looking forward to our new cottage there."  

 

 

MAINTAINING CONTROL AND INDEPENDENCE

We have learned a lot from you regarding what you are looking for in a Senior community. We have put together an unscientific list of the “Top 10 Reasons to Move”. We believe the attributes of our community will meet and surpass these needs.

 

Our current residents at our sister community, Sterling Estates of East Cobb, provide valuable insight into how we provide that control and independence. Take a look at what many of them have to say here.

 

 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

We have passed the halfway point of our construction schedule. Brasfield & Gorrie, our general contractor, has moved to inside the building and therefore our mid August opening is on track. Please note when you drive by, the maturity and quality of the trees that have been planted. Bryan Sodel, one of our partners, visited several nurseries to find what he wanted for our neighborhood. The large, existing oaks that we saved mixed with our cottage homes are receiving the positive feedback that we had hoped.

 

We encourage you to go to our website here, to look at photos we’ll be posting frequently to give you a feel for what Sterling Estates of West Cobb looks like. We are very proud how our neighborhood is coming together.

 

 

 

 

 

Deposit update

A growing number of our homes/apartments are already reserved so call us for availability 770-255-7000 or email us.  Over the last two months we have received additional deposits with others pending as families continue taking advantage of the financial incentives we are offering to select the residence of their choice now.  ***Please be aware these incentives are available for a limited time only.

 

Christine Miller, our Community Relations Counselor, brings a wealth of industry experience in helping prospective residents and their loved ones through the decision process of how our community and all that we offer can be an ideal lifestyle for them. She can be reached at 404-304-9442 or by email. 


 

In closing, we are excited about the response of those who have visited, and we encourage those who haven't, to come see us soon. All of the partners will be helping out with tours but if you have difficulty scheduling a tour, please feel free to call me directly at 404-822-1030 (c).
