Atherton Place is named after the late Dr. Lucious Atherton, a retired pharmacist who, while on the health system board of directors, had the idea of creating an independent and assisted living senior community in Marietta and Cobb County. WellStar Atherton Place opened in 1988 and has since become one of the state leaders in senior living. In fact, Atherton Place's assisted living services have been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Atherton Place is also a member of the Georgia Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, state chapter of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

And the residents? They're a lively, active, intellectually curious bunch. They've come to Atherton Place because they're not ready to stop living – just cooking, cleaning, and worrying.
