ATLANTA–Lenbrook, Atlanta’s premier intown community for engaged senior living for more than 35 years, recently promoted Nettie Thrash, R.N., to Vice President of Health Services, and also appointed Deon’ta Hampton as Director of Enrichment for the 487-resident community.
Thrash joined Lenbrook in 2003 as a PRN nurse and became full time after more than 25 years with Atlanta’s Grady Health System.
In her new role Thrash will lead all areas of Lenbrook’s full continuum of health services for Lenbrook’s residents, which include The Clinic, short-term rehabilitation services, Assisted Living Suites, Lenbrook’s Medicare-certified skilled nursing center, and Menders by Lenbrook home health services.
In addition to her Registered Nursing degree from Excelsior College and Licensed Practical Nursing degree from Atlanta Technical College, Thrash pursued and completed the Gerontology Certification program at Kennesaw State University. Most recently she earned certification in the Stephen Ministry Program, which she says honed her listening skills and has helped make her a more effective caregiver.
As Director of Enrichment, Hampton will continue Lenbrook’s rich tradition of providing opportunities that positively impact the lives of residents every day.
Hampton will oversee the robust enrichment initiatives that Lenbrook offers its residents including activities and programs that enhance physical, intellectual, social, spiritual, vocational, emotional and environmental health. Enrichment activities include onsite classes and clubs, comprehensive fitness center and wellness activities, non-denominational spiritual programs, volunteer groups, cultural and recreational outings, and learning opportunities, just to name a few.
Previous to joining Lenbrook, Hampton held a number of leadership positions with YMCA branches in Metro Atlanta and Central Florida, as well as the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.
Lenbrook is the first and only Life Plan Community in Atlanta to achieve international accreditation by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). Founded in 1983, this not-for-profit senior living community in the heart of Buckhead enables its residents to enjoy the gifts of independence, good health and personal fulfillment through engaging programs and services. Its award-winning facilities also offer the security and convenience of excellent on-site, Medicare-certified skilled nursing services.
