You're Never To Old To Find The Free Road

For adults, finding a new hobby or rediscovering your love for an old hobby means finding a new love in life. Maybe you have only dreamed of riding a motorcycle before being too caught up in life to make it happen.

You can start riding a motorcycle at any age, and the Holbrook team, having senior living communities in Acworth and across the Southeast, is here to support your passions.

The Truth About Owning Dogs

Our four-legged companions are by our side day in day out, leading many to study the health benefits of owning a dog. One common conception about dog ownership we hear often is—dog owners tend to live longer. Is that true?

Who of us doesn’t remember the rush of excitement when cruising down a new, undiscovered bike path?

However, no one said that biking had to remain in our childhood. In fact, thanks to the excellent exercise factor, biking is making a great comeback for many active adults.
