As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Park Springs, I’d like to share the very personal journey that inspired my family to create this special community––and show you how the lifestyle we have built to give families peace of mind can benefit your family for generations to come.

While I am immensely proud of the award-winning Life Plan Community we have created, what motivates me is something much bigger. From my father, Ed Isakson, who spent his career in residential real estate brokerage, and my mother, Julia, I inherited the calling to help others and to give back to the community. And that where the story of Park Springs begins.

Just like many families today, our family was thrown into turmoil when my aging father suddenly passed away and my mother’s dementia progressed. In just a few short years, my mom was forced to move four times due to her changing condition. And as you may know from your own struggle with a parent or spouse, this was an incredibly difficult period for our family. I began to understand Memory Care through the eyes of an adult child.

Through this painful experience with my own parents, I was determined to develop a community that would offer seniors the opportunity to thrive at every age and every stage…a welcoming neighborhood with beautiful homes, amazing amenities, and a continuum of care so that no family is ever forced to face the traumatic move of an ailing loved one.

Our team sought out the world’s best practices for senior care through extensive research, visiting some 75 communities throughout the country and consulting with top professionals around the globe. Soon, the concept for a ground-breaking new model of senior living was born and our vision began to take shape.

In 2004, we welcomed the first Members to our beautiful 61-acre campus with breathtaking views of iconic Stone Mountain. Here they discovered a vibrant, maintenance-free lifestyle where they could be as active as they liked and live in comfort, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing they have access to a full continuum of care at every stage of life…from Independent Living to Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Skilled Nursing.

Through the years, we’ve learned that the well-being of each Member in our community depends on a supportive environment to prevent the negative effects of social isolation, boredom, and loneliness. And for those Members on a dementia journey, we’ve shown that their lives can be dramatically improved when we provide opportunities for meaningful connection and relationship with others while we honor their individual choices in every aspect of life.

Today, Park Springs is Atlanta’s premiere Life Plan Community where families like yours will find a warm, caring environment and neighbors who share a passion for life and learning together. With rich amenities, over 50+ Member-led clubs and activities, and an onsite Medical Center, we’ve made it easy for neighbors to naturally build friendships, pursue health and wellness, and cultivate new hobbies and interests.

As I reflect back on our history, I know Park Springs exists because of the example that my parents set for all their children. And as I look to the future, I am certain that Park Springs will continue to grow because it has become a close-knit community where we all care about each other – as neighbors, Members, and staff.

Whatever the next chapter for your family holds, we invite you step into the story of Park Springs as we continue to dream, explore, and honor the journey of your loved ones as they age.

Here’s to 20 years of pioneering care and to the limitless possibilities that lie ahead.

In community,
