There’s No Place Like Home - Laurel Grove Retirement Community

Jan 23, 2014

Stephen York has come full circle.  Growing up in Wisconsin, he moved the Atlanta area in the mid 90s.  His parents opened a memory care community here, and he was working with seniors at an early age.  After earning a degree from Georgia State University's Robinson College of Business, he did what most college grads do...he took the first job he could find!  After two years doing that, Stephen decided to circle back to his roots working with seniors.  This time around, Stephen did a good deal of research to find a company that held to the same standards and values he had learned from his parents.  What Stephen found was Holiday Retirement, a company committed to a carefree, independent lifestyle for seniors.  One of the hallmarks of Holiday properties is the live-in managers at each property.

Laurel Grove is a 125-unit Holiday property located in Lawrenceville, Georgia.  One of Laurel Grove's more colorful residents is Leonard Joffe, a return guest to Eugeria! Radio!  Leonard is a transplanted Long Islander via South Florida.  He moved here to be closer to his son after his wife passed away.  After five years of living alone, Leonard decided to move to a more social environment, and is absolutely delighted to be a Laurel Grove resident.  Wylene Ivie is the Laurel Grove rookie, having moved in just over three months ago.  A Georgia native of 83 years, Wylene also decided she wanted to live in an environment that was more social.  More importantly, Wylene was looking for a porch, and Laurel Grove has a great porch!  She is already part of Laurel Grove's Ambassador program - a real social butterfly!
