Anything But Typical
A Day in the Life at The Grande at
Sterling Estates of West Cobb
There’s no such thing as a “typical” day at The Grande at Sterling Estates of West Cobb.
There aren’t any rigid schedules here. Residents wake when they choose and participate in the activities they choose.
Every day is different, and is filled with rich programming and engagement opportunities created to promote success, enjoyment and confidence.
I’m Still Here® Learning Stations
I’m Still Here® Learning Stations are engaging places where residents have the opportunity to learn new information, revisit previous knowledge, participate in familiar tasks or experience completely new adventures. They’re located throughout The Grande to encourage independent or social engagement.
Each Learning Station is thoughtfully designed to offer topics, tasks and information based on current interests or subjects of study. While some stations emphasize opportunities to learn new information, others – such as making body scrubs and arranging flowers – encourage residents to express their creativity.
The materials at the stations are changed and updated regularly to provide an ever-changing variety of interesting and engaging things to learn and do. There are puzzles, art projects, recipes and more.
In addition to offering individualized learning experiences, Learning Stations also provide residents with an opportunity to teach and share their knowledge with others.
Hearthstone has developed many innovative tools, programs and games to inspire and engage residents. The Grande is proud to offer these enriching opportunities to our residents.
