Brett Harper once worked as a home health aide, traveling to private residences to assist older adults. A few years ago, one of her favorite clients, Gwen, decided it was time to consider assisted living. Because the two had become close friends, Brett helped Gwen search for options.

One community they visited was Atria Inn at Lakewood. From the moment Gwen and Brett walked through the doors and felt the warm, welcoming atmosphere, they knew they’d found the perfect place – for both of them.

Soon after Gwen moved in, Brett applied for the job she holds today as a resident medication assistant. The two remained good friends until Gwen passed away in 2014.

Never doubt the power of friendship – one special experience can help our Atria family grow exponentially.
