Park Springs Couple Celebrates 60th Anniversary

A couple recently celebrated its 60th anniversary at the beginning of September. They said they are happy to be beginning the newest chapter of their life at the Atlanta continuing care retirement community.

Atlanta, GA, September 26, 2009 --( For James and Caroline Gammell, Park Springs is a perfect fit. The continuing care community which is designed for seniors ages 62 and older, not only provides them with an expansive array of the finest services and amenities available for active adults in the Southeast, it also provides the Gammell’s with the wellness and social environment that they sought.

The couple, which recently celebrated its 60th anniversary at the beginning of September, made the move to Park Springs just one month ago. James said the couple is happy to be beginning the newest chapter of their life at the Atlanta continuing care retirement community in Stone Mountain.

“I am well satisfied and well pleased about the move,” said Gammell, who had spent the last 50 years with his wife at Oak Grove Acres, a subdivision just a short 15 minute drive from their current residence. “The people here are so friendly. For our 60th Wedding Anniversary we had a big blowout downstairs in the party room. We had something like 18 or 19 people here. Everyone at Park Springs was very accommodating.”

While Mr. Gammell has just started to enjoy many of the amenities Park Springs has to offer, including a 50,000-square-foot clubhouse with a library, art studio, woodworking room, bridge room, ballroom, bank, business center, market, beauty salon and barber shop, it is the fact that his wife who suffers from dementia, can also enjoy them as well.

“We have a lady that comes in twice a week and takes my wife to swimming and other activities,” said Gammell. “It is nice to know that she is being taken care of.”

In addition to Park Springs’ amenities and services it offers to its members, the retirement community also provides a wide variety of dining options, abundant activities, travel, learning and on-site health care should the need arise. Seniors enjoy living in the Atlanta continuing care retirement community that allows them to concentrate on enjoying life and not worry about medical dilemmas.

Beyond the beautiful buildings and opportunities for personal and social growth lies a deep sense of community. Members use Park Spring’s offerings as a starting point to create a satisfying, secure and fun way of life truly unique in the Southeast.
