Heritage

Atherton Place is named for our founder, the late Dr. Lucious Atherton. A retired pharmacist, Dr. Atherton was a member of the WellStar Health System board when he proposed creating a residential community to serve seniors in Cobb County, Marietta and beyond. WellStar Atherton Place opened in 1988 and has become a leader in senior living.

Atherton Place is a member of LeadingAge Georgia, the association for not-for-profit and other mission-driven organizations dedicated to providing quality housing, healthcare and services for Georgia seniors.

The Atherton community is known for activity and engagement. Residents welcome the opportunity to exchange household duties and yard work for a fun and relaxing lifestyle in the company of lovely neighbors. We offer a variety of beautifully appointed apartments and levels of assistance. Life at Atherton Place is easy, secure, delicious and convenient.
