We are excited to jump into the second month of the New Year!It is time for our quarterly service plan reviews. Please reach out to our Wellness Director, Olga Flores, at oflores@legacryridgepeachtree.com to set up a meeting.

This month is filled with stimulating and enjoyable activities! We will be exploring Mammoth Cave as a part of our National Parks Program. Keep an eye out on the calendar for any activities with an *NP* next to it for events that are a part of this program.

We are looking forward to a beautiful Valentine’s Day lunch with live entertainment by Noteworthy while we eat. In February we also celebrate National Caregivers Day. We are so incredibly thankful for all our caregivers, as well as the care you give to your family members.

For the second year in a row, we will be hosting a Presidents Day Penny Drive as a Fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Throughout February, you can find three donation jars in the lobby, one for each hall. The hall that raises the most money will be announced at the end of the month. We are blessed to have residents and families who seek ways in which they can help others, it’s part of what makes Legacy Ridge at Peachtree so special.

Mammoth Cave

National Park

The longest know cave system in the World, more than a cave.

Resident of the Month

Joanne Irvine

Joanne Irvine, Resident of the Month February 2024 | Legacy Ridge at Peachtree

Joanne Irvine is our February resident of the month! Joanne was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She moved to Georgia to be closer to her daughter, Stacy. She is so thankful to her daughter for orchestrating her moving arrangements and finding Legacy Ridge to be her new home. Joanne has 4 children and 10 grandchildren who live all over the US including California, Missouri, Colorado, and Georgia. As a child, some of Joanne’s favorite memories include roller skating and celebrating her Irish heritage on St. Patrick’s Day with her father singing My Wild Irish Rose. Joanne worked as an elementary school teacher and to this day still loves to be around children. As a matter of fact, she cherishes being around all people in general…. Well, people and dogs. Her favorite part about Legacy Ridge at Peachtree is the staff. She attests “They are always so patient! They act like you are the only person in the world they are caring for, even though I know they are dealing with so much!”. Joanne’s best piece of advice is simple: “Be kind to people”. We can attest that Joanne practices what she preaches, as she is one of the sweetest women you could come across (we’re starting to think it might be because of her favorite food…chocolate!). We love having her as part of our Legacy Ridge family!

Associate of the Month

Jerome Perrien

Jerome Perrien, Associate of the Month February 2024 | Legacy Ridge at Peachtree

Congratulations to our February employee of the month, Jerome Perrien. Jerome has been a cook with us for about 2 years now and has worked in the food industry for over 20 years. On weekdays Jerome works as the Lead Food Service Manager in the Fayette County School System, overseeing 9 of the county schools. On weekends Jerome joins us here at our home to cook up delicious food for our residents. Jerome began work in the food industry because both his mother and father enjoyed cooking and they used it as an expression of love. He finds cooking to be a relaxing and soothing line of work. Originally from Mississippi, Jerome moved to Georgia with his wife and two kids to be closer to family. In his free time, Jerome enjoys fishing and completing puzzles. One of Jerome’s favorite parts about working here at Legacy Ridge at Peachtree is enjoying our residents’ reactions to his cooking. If you were to walk into our kitchen over the weekend, you would find the calming presence and steadfast smile of this chef, and we are so thankful to have him as a part of our team.
