“It is so easy to sell and promote something you believe in! What I love most about Senior Living is that you get to immediately see the positive effect you can have on the life of a senior and their families. We should have made this move years ago is something I never grow tired of hearing from new residents that decide to make an Atlas community their home. It is very important that we always continue to strive for that sort of affirmation in what we do. It never feels like work to care for our residents but a privileged. “ ~ Greg Crutcher

“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. “ ~Christopher McCandless
