Sterling Estates is lovely. That’s where I would go in a heartbeat, but it's expensive. My husband needs special care, and that runs the fee up. It’s very nice and fairly new. Everything is clean and updated. The people are very friendly. They had an open house with a lot of people and had refreshments and nice tour. The community is very nicely landscaped with flowers and green grass.

My father-in-law is at Sterling now. He has some mutual friends there. They allow small pets. The room that he got there is very comparable in size with the one from the other facility. It was a little bit of a different layout, but large enough for him to have a sofa, a recliner, and a little TV area, which is important to him. They have a pool, something the other facility did not have. He has enjoyed that. There are some exercises in the water and even just walking around in the pool. There is also some camaraderie at the pool -- people talking to each other -- and they have organized activities there as well. They have on-site physical therapy.

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!

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.

My thoughts on The Sterling Estates Marietta, Georgia FACILITY The architecture of this new residence has the feel and appearance of a grand home. The public areas are decorated and furnished just like home.. The terrace and porches Provide a comfortable place to sun and view the wonderful landscaping. The wellness Center (gym and pool) and activities center are first class. There are apartment accommodations to satisfy one’s different needs. ACTIVITES The activities really keep us going, from bingo, brain games, arts and crafts to restaurant outings and shopping trips. The wellness program offers us group exercise programs in the gym and the pool as well as individual sessions. STAFF The companion care givers are a great help to me and all others. Each companion knows every resident by name and is familiar with their individual needs.. They are cheerful and warm. Their quality of care is the hallmark of this residence. The management staff works very hard to keep us all alive and living. Their many programs keep us active and moving. They know the way to ones heart is through their stomach so they set a fine table. Having never lived in a senior community before my wife and I were surprised at the genuine level of attention that comes from the staff here.

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.

Sterling Estates has been a God send. 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 new 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.

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.

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 their 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.

Sterling Estates of East Cobb was smaller and on a 10-acre campus. We liked the independent living. The facilities were gorgeous and very nice, and the people were very nice. The residents all looked pretty happy.

My Wife and I are 35 year residents of East Cobb. Having been a residential Realtor in the Atlanta area for 11 years, I have a number of older clients and friends who are our Parent's age. A number of these clients/friends have wanted to downsize but yet want the security of an active adult community. The staff and environment at Sterling Estates is just amazing! They focus on being as active as you can be. With a strong emphasis on wellness, this family-friendly environment, provides a beautiful setting, delicious meals and state of the art ammenities. There are always lots of activities going on there. I would doubt there is anything else in the state of Georgia, perhaps the Southeast which can touch this stellar place. Having had a Grandmother in an older adult setting in South Carolina, Sterling Estates is in the forefront of any such communities I have ever visited. A former client is a resident here now and has been for over a year now. It's great to visit the folks here as they are always upbeat, anxious to help and clearly welcome visitors. We are so fortunate to have this community in our area as Parents age and want to live near their children yet have their own home. Sterling Estates is just a perfect spot for those situations.
