Meet Ms. Dorman
It’s not every day that you get to celebrate someone turning 102 years old. So, it was no surprise that the staff at The Atrium at Collegetown had already set the wheels in motion to honor resident Mary Dorman in a special way. When Sarah, her granddaughter, was approached about throwing a birthday party for her grandmother, she initially thought, “Oh my God! This is unreal! There aren’t too many places you can go where people really care for seniors.”
With her family, close friends, and Mercy Housing staff gathered, Ms. Dorman was surrounded by love and laughter as those who know her best shared stories. Georgia State Representative Stacy Evans even issued a proclamation in Ms. Dorman’s honor, which was hand-delivered by Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens.
“I want to thank everybody at Mercy Housing for the birthday party,” Sarah said. “It’s given me peace of mind to know that people here care about her and watch out for her. She’s ‘mama’ and I’m just so thankful for the group of people here.”
We can’t wait to see how she celebrates turning 103!
