My father is in Sterling Estates of East Cobb. They have a great staff, and the facility is better than any I had seen. It's very clean, and they have a good nursing director. The grounds are excellent. They have water aerobics, men's club, outings, and transportation. He loves the food. They have a new chef, and he eats anything. It's the most expensive in the area. That place is definitely catering to upper middle class clientele. Their medical billing needs to be improved.
Sterling Estates is a beautiful, well-maintained facility in a very nice part of town that easy to get to. The caregivers were pleasant, and the rooms were lovely, very clean, and well maintained. There was an art class, and people were using the gym.
Sterling Estates of West Cobb was our favorite. They were very nice, and we liked the facility, especially the beautiful independent living apartments. They're two stories, so they had an apartment on the second level and another on the first level. The one up on the second level with an elevator would be terrific, but the cost was very high. They want $150,000 to buy in, and then you pay $5,650 a month, which is subject to a 3% increase annually, so pretty quickly you're going to pay over $6,000 a month and what you get for that isn’t worth it. You get 30 meals per person and access to their indoor pool and programs. The average age was 79 to 80, and we're about 10 years younger than that, so it wasn't quite right for us. The people were terrific and very nice. The facilities were beautiful.
Shame on you Senior Homes.com! I wrote a review that tells the truth about this facility, and you have chosen not to publish it! So, I am writing another one that is shorter. This facility has an owner that calls residents names and is condescending and disrespectful. The food is substandard. The chef told the residents that he is not allowed to use butter or salt. Another employee told residents that the use of butter is against state law. The room we occupy is only 476 square feet. There is no oven, no dishwasher, a small bar sink, and barely enough room to turn around. According to state law, residents are supposed to be able to form and run a "residents' council" without the presence of management. But ours is run by a staff member who also wrote the bylaws. My husband and I don't dare speak up to make suggestions. Any negative comment is squashed. We have been told by one of the owners that he has asked people who are not "happy" to leave. Our advice is to check out the competition. There are lots of new facilities that are being built.
This community integrates all their residents into the building, so there is no separation. You could be independent living or assisted living and still in the same atmosphere, joining all the other residents. You feel invested with them, in regards to your care. If your health declines, you can stay with them and still have a good quality of life without leaving through moving to their assisted care facility. One thing that makes this building so special is that the actual owners of the community work IN the building and eat with the residents.
Our Homecoming to Sterling Estates Barbara Sikorski My husband and I were now in our 80s. We were starting to see signs that our bodies and minds were getting up in years. Mat fell out of bed, thankfully not damaging his pacemaker. I also had a fall. It was becoming apparent that we needed more help to get by. I visited a local Assisted Living facility and was very depressed by what I saw. People sat staring out the window and the place smelled very bad. This was not the dream I had for my, "golden years." Fortunately, I had an office visit with a physical therapist and she told me about a new senior residence which was under construction in Marietta. I was curious enough to go and take a look. Even though the property was just being developed, a strong feeling came over me that, "this is it." I had not had such a feeling since decades earlier when I had the urge to open my own sandwich shop. The idea of a place dedicated to wellness was just what I wanted to see. Having a heated indoor swimming pool, plus healthy meals, in a beautiful environment, were my hopes for a better future. I met Sharon and Marshall at Sterling Estates and was very pleased with their friendliness and courtesy. I knew that the biggest challenge I faced was to get my husband convinced it was time for us to move. Since he liked the buffalo burgers at Ted's Montana Grill, I suggested that we go for a ride. While we were there, I casually suggested that, “just for fun,” we go take a look at a new retirement place down the street. He was equally impressed. I told him that I was concerned if we could afford something that nice. He told me that since we had been paying into a long-term disability fund for many years, we could. We decided that the least we could do was give it a short-term trial and see if it was a good fit. We moved in August of 2012. It was wonderful to be in a community of caring people who showed deep personal concern for all of our needs. This became especially important as my husband’s health deteriorated. We do not know how we would have managed without a team of experts to help us through the difficult time of concluding his life. I am so blessed today to enjoy the luxury and comfort of pristine surroundings, including a flower-filled courtyard, complete with a fountain and rubber ducks! Additionally, after many years of hoping and wishing, I have finally found a close personal friend with whom I can share activities. Our only regret about Sterling Estates is that we could not have moved here sooner. Since we were some of the first residents to arrive, we have had the benefit of enjoying this wonderful place as much as possible.
