Leroy and I would like to thank Sterling Estates for helping to make Christmas for us this year. Our plans were for us and our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to celebrate this year in Tennessee. As you know, I injured my back, making it hard to travel 3 hours in a car with the brace I have to wear.

Our kids, made all the food and brought it here. We had a beautiful Christmas tree in the family room in the Stratford building. There were 22 of us, I might add not all could make it. Everyone enjoyed the Christmas village belonging to Hank and Barb.

We moved here September 1st and enjoyed meeting all the people who reside here. Most of us cannot believe how friendly and helpful all the staff and owners are to us. We highly recommend this Senior Community place to anyone interested in making such a change in their lives.

I have lived at Sterling Estates of West Cobb for only a short time, but never have I met a more caring community. The ones I have met consider their role here as not just a job but also a calling. To help others seems to be one of the pre-requisites to working here.

They are all eager to make our residence here a happy and fulfilling one. They have a Wellness Center with all kinds of activities to appeal to anyone, from water aerobics to exercise classes for all abilities. Our excellent Wellness Director offers individual as well as group sessions to fit every need, and we have volunteers who offer Tai Chi and Yoga, with other offerings in the works.

Our wonderful Activities Director is always looking for ways to offer activities our residents might enjoy. We have cards, games, puzzles, Spanish lessons, healthy eating classes, shopping trips, drawing and painting, movies, Bible study and church offerings, Happy Hour with refreshments and often with music by different groups who come to entertain us, book clubs, needlework groups, outings of many different kinds, and for ones who want to use more technology, we have Tech Talk and TED Talks. You name it; she will try to provide it.

We have a large screen for group viewing and Wi-Fi throughout the complex, which enable us to use our mobile phones, laptops and other technology. We have two dining rooms, marvelous chefs who work to give us the best food available for our meals.

I was the first resident to move in here and I am very glad I did. I saw it; I liked it, and thanks to the wonderful people here, I am happy to remain here.

I am so proud of my Daddy! At 87 years old he has decided Parkinson’s isn’t going to compromise his mobility, balance or quality of life. After moving into the spectacular Sterling Estates of West Cobb in August, he has attended exercise class 6 mornings a week in addition to Tai Chi, water aerobics, personal training and physical therapy. Thanks to Christy Kelley, Executive Director and the phenomenal staff there, he is now a rock star!!

This place is wonderful. It took us months to make a decision about moving our mother. The staff at Sterling was wonderful. They were very patient with us and never said anything negative about the other options we were reviewing. Mother has been there almost a month and it has been great. My sister and I were stressing over the fact that we had to visit mother every day to make sure she was OK and to take care of daily essentials like bathing, dressing and medication management.

Now, we visit Mom and it's actually a visit and not a chore. We get to enjoy her again because the Sterling staff takes such wonderful care of her. She has an efficiency apartment and it's just great. Patrick, the chef, oversees preparation of three wonderful meals a day and the choices are the same that you would see at any fine restaurant. The administrative staff, the maintenance staff, the nursing staff and the caregivers are wonderful and know exactly what it takes to be effective. They seem to want to be there and they really get to know the residents.

I would definitely recommend Sterling to anyone who has parents who need extra care. Love the place and love the staff.

Here's the really important thing...we know it wasn't all about the sale. Even though Mother has now moved in, the staff treat her and us like we're part of their family. Everyone is friendly and takes the time to stop and chat and let us know how our mom has been doing. We don't feel like we're alone in our efforts to make sure she loves her home. We know the people at Sterling really care about her.

Everyone has to deal with the different stages of life and ours is leaning toward less complication and more relaxation. We visited many senior living communities in the metropolitan Atlanta area and found a few that we were interested in and finally chose Sterling Estates in West Cobb. Sterling West met all of our needs and desires. We especially like the location, shopping areas located in the vicinity and making new friends. The executives at Sterling Estates West that we have come to know and work with could not be more pleasant and accommodating. Thank you Pete, Marshall, Steve, Bryan, Ray, Mike and Deana and Christine for all of your help, suggestions, cooperation, kindness and your hospitality and consideration in our transition toward our new beginning at Sterling Estates. You all have a way of making everyone feel special. We anticipate a smooth move into our new and beautiful home with wonderful people!

"There are many clinical terms to describe where I was with my role as a member of the sandwich generation: anxious, overwhelmed, fatigued, and stuck. Life is a process of deciding when to hold on, and when to let go; I was avoiding making a necessary decision. It was time to find a new home for my parents. Again.

A funny and welcomed thing happened: I met new people who listened, cared, and had ideas I didn't dare dream were possible. The team at Sterling Estates is building a unique senior neighborhood in West Cobb that will provide a new and enriching life for my parents. I am filled with hope, compassion, and joy.

Best of all, I had some wonderfully poignant moments with Mother and Dad. We had some important conversations...and I truly laughed for the first time in months."

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. We were lucky enough to have one of the first tours of the model home. We are really impressed with the quality of the construction, finishes 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.

Sterling Estates is an environment that provides activities to keep people involved both mentally and physically. Here you find yourself connected to a community of people who will care for one another and share concerns with those around them. I have found that the staff is friendly and very well trained. They provide for the needs of people regarding dietary, mobility, strength and enthusiasm. Here we see that Independent and Assisted Living are to be valued and enjoyed, not feared. We live side by side and appreciate each other just as we would our brothers and sisters. This is a community of people living together as a family. How do I know this? I LIVE HERE!

Sterling Estates has been a Godsend. My mom who is 91 fell in January and broke her hip. After surgery and rehab, mom was not able to return home. I looked at all of the senior facilities in East Cobb and knew immediately Sterling Estates was the right fit. Other facilities had no formal exercise room nor heated swimming pool much less a dedicated staff member who CARES about every resident’s health and encourages them to exercise. My mom hadn’t been in a swimsuit since she was 20 years old. Now she’s in the pool twice a week and getting stronger from week to week. From the kitchen staff who always prepare delicious food and offer variety to their menu to the nursing staff and care givers to the management team and owners, Sterling Estates offers the best senior care in East Cobb. Mom is in a safe loving environment with lots of good friends. They have become her second family! Thank you, Sterling Estates for the peace of mind you have given me.

I came to Sterling Estates with the hope of reestablishing an independent lifestyle. When I arrived I could not walk for more than five minutes. Suffering from a heart condition had greatly limited what I could do. I truly felt trapped. I wanted to feel better. I wanted to be the person I once was. I met with the Sterling Estate staff and a wellness plan was custom made for me. It included exercise and diet. I began personal training with gentle resistance three days a week, as well as, closely monitored water therapy two days a week. I set what seemed like a lofty goal of running up the large hill on the front of the property. I am proud to say on August 1, 2013, less than a year later, I ran up that hill! Sterling Estates has more than changed my life. I have reached goals I never thought possible.

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.

We visited a large number of communities before deciding to place my dad at Sterling Estates. The people and the facility are far above anything else in the East Cobb area. From our first visit, the staff there demonstrated that they valued my dad – and all of us – as members of a community that they are serious about making a welcoming, safe place.

My mom moved to sterling estates 2 years ago. From the moment she moved in there my sisters and I knew this was an excellent home for Mom. The staff is professional, the place is beautiful. Everyone is treated like family. Seniors have as much independence as want with the opportunity for assistance at a moments notice. My sisters and I have great peace of mind knowing mom is living at sterling!

Having lived in East Cobb for 36 years, and as a Realtor, it is great to have this superb community available to offer to older clients. Many like the idea of downsizing and yet, want to be able to have full service ammenities and an active lifestyle. Sterling Estates provides the perfect option for older Parents for example, who want to live close to their grown children yet have their own “home”. This family-friendly neighborhood, encourages wellness and exercise and being as active as you are able to be. I have a former client who lives there now and she just loves it. Her circle of friends there and support system made her feel welcome immediately. I have eaten there a number of times and tableside service with delicious choices, always provided. We are lucky to have this Senior Living community here in East Cobb.

My wife and I have been residents of Sterling Estates for about two years. We live in one of their new and well maintained cottages which is like living in your old home, with plenty of space, security, and all the convenieces that go with an outstanding senior living facility. However, we go down to the main building for mind games, swimming, and exercise classes. We eat lunch and dinner, which is healthy and variable, most week days in the main building. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we eat out or cook in. To go out is very easy, since there are many and various eating establishments as well as stores in the immediate area. The staff is outstanding, courteous, helpfull and caring of the needs of all those residing at Sterling. I would like to inform one and all that you dont have to be in your nineties or feeble to take advantage of all the pluses that Sterling has to offer. Remember you are not getting any younger!!!!

My husband and I moved to Sterling Estates over two years ago when they were partially completed. With uniquely designed floor plans and a vast array of amenities we decided a cottage suited our needs the best. We are both involved in water aerobics twice a week, weekly lunch outings, games, crafts, happy hour, and just a few mentioned- we stay busy! We select our daily menus which include: healthy choices, creative food, homemade soups and desserts with all meals. Location also influenced our move as we had lived in Cobb County for over 30 years. Best decision we could make in our “Golden Years” at Sterling Estates.

After the death of my husband and a series of accidents my three sons and I looked for a place in Georgia for me that would help me recover. Sterling Estates was our choice, and I was on my way to recovery. The wellness program is the place for me. I always enjoyed exercise and competed in many sports. I am doing well and making progress everyday with the help of an excellent staff. The care team and the staff has become family to me. This is a wonderful place, and I smile each day because I am here.

Very impressed with the Wellness Center at Sterling Estates. They get residents out of their rooms and get them moving either in the workout room or in the therapeutic pool. Lots of energy and a happy atmosphere at Sterling Estates.

My mother is an original member of the Sterling Community. When we moved her here from out of state we were relieved to find a superb Senior Living Community close to our home. All facilities are first rate and the staff is caring and attentive. Dining, recreational and wellness activities, coupled with the establishment of good friends has made her experience and ours very positive. In particular, a heated pool, well equipped fitness center, physical therapy and massages have been critical to combat physical and mobility declines. These were real differentiators over other facilities we considered.

The staff is very nice at Sterling Estates. A lady, I think named Sharon, is the director and is very good. I had lunch there. My daughter also lives right near there, which is a good thing. It’s all nice, and the facilities are good. They had swimming pool and activities like dancing and movies. It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s good as new, and it’s good looking.

Unfortunately, my stay at Sterling was only a temporary one. I was there until I could sell my previous home and purchase a new one. I was welcomed, literally, with open arms from the owners, management, and all staff. It is a perfectly beautiful and safe place, which has the feeling of one big family. Everyone goes above and beyond when accommodating residents there. I was one of the independents, but saw first-hand the loving care and attention shown to assisted living residents as well. The companions do a wonderful job in all areas and are utmost professionals. I simply cannot speak highly enough of Sterling Estates, and would recommend it to anyone in need of a facility of this nature.
