    Dining Services Director: Brian Knapp 

    My career path includes 15 years of private country/city clubs, restaurants, and senior living. I’ve had the privilege to work with seniors for over 6 years. As we age, meal time becomes more important in many ways. It’s hard to describe the feeling of positively influencing someone’s day through taste. I’m very passionate about creating a great dining experience for our residents. I feel at home with family when I come to work and love being a part of the Arbor Terrace East Cobb community.

    I joined Arbor Terrace in 2008. My prior experience includes work in a skilled facility and home health care where I cared for residents with catastrophic and complex injuries including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and neurological disorders. Most recently, I have worked in assisted living and memory care communities. Over the years, I have found great satisfaction in caring for the elderly, especially those with dementia. I am honored and blessed to be part of the Arbor family.

    Maintenance Director: Eddie Goodly

    Joined Arbor Terrace in 2014; “I have had the honor of working in maintenance for over twenty years. For the past six years, I’ve had the pleasure to serve in assisted living and memory care communities – this latter part of my career has been the greatest. Some of the most joyous occasions are the simple ones, such as placing a residents TV on the right channel, changing out a light bulb, or replacing a battery in the smoke detector. Seeing the smile on the resident’s face is priceless. I now have a career that allows me to look forward to working every day.”

    Family Stories

    "A pleasure to work with since 2004"

    “It has been our pleasure to work with the various Arbor Terrace facilities of the greater Atlanta area since 2004. Our Arbor partners have shown great enthusiasm for expanding their employees’ knowledge base as well as outreaching to residents and their families. We have found the relationship with Arbor to be quite fruitful: the CHA gains an opportunity to train committed health professionals and to interact directly in a friendly setting with the aging community, while the Arbor staff benefits from high-quality education delivered from university-based, top ranked geriatricians and gerontologists. The Emory Center for Health in Aging is committed to promoting healthy aging and to providing quality education to community members in our region. Our strong partnership with the Arbor Terrace facilities in the Atlanta area has afforded us many valuable opportunities to help fulfill this commitment.”

    - Director, Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology
