“There’s really no typical day for us, and that’s the good news,” says Lois Griffin. She and her husband James hit the ground running when they moved to Park Springs in 2010.

The Griffins were living in Athens, GA and accepted an invitation to spend the night at Park Springs to learn about the community. “We were welcomed with open arms,” recalls James.

“I met five people just that evening who had retired from BellSouth, as I had. I thought to myself, ‘Phone company people are pretty smart, so maybe they’re onto something here.'”

Lois and James did a great deal of research before choosing Park Springs. They also relied on the experience they gained as caregivers for close family members.

Park Springs met their needs on many levels – from gourmet dining to a fine library, a primary care physican and onsite health center.

Says Lois, “When we first moved here, some of our friends back home had no idea what a continuing care retirement community was all about. We explained that there’s everything you might want to do, but if you prefer to sit around the house in your PJs and read, that’s fine, too.”

Like many Members, the Griffins have enjoyed a resurgence of social life. “We love getting together with people for dinner. We have a habit of calling several days in advance to find out who might like to join us in the grill or the dining room.”

James is finding it easier than ever to make the twice-weekly golf games he’s always loved. He’s an active member of the Park Springs Golf Association and thoroughly enjoys outings to the Stone Mountain golf course.

At the end of the day (and no two are alike!) Lois says the couple feels secure here – not just a beautiful place to live, but solutions if health challenges arise.

“As caregivers for our mothers and aunt, we saw how difficult it was when decisions had to be made at the last minute. We learned the value of making a plan.”
