A New Year, A New Addition – Parkside Community
This is truly a living center with empowered Elders and employee care partners driving the rhythm of daily life. They are home to 33 Elders each with their own personalized suite, complete with a living area and kitchenette. Walking around the home, you will see people getting together for spontaneous activities and games, chatting by the fireplace or taking trips to town.
Relationship building is important within the home and with the larger community beyond their doors. When new Elders comes to Parkside Community, they are greeted with open arms and invited to a “welcome tea,” where they receive a welcome basket filled with items to make them feel right at home. The Elders here enjoy giving back to the community. When they learned of a young girl that was undergoing cancer treatment, they held a fundraiser to help her family with medical expenses. Parkside Community has big dreams for the future, and if you come by for a visit, you can see why the Elders are having so much fun!
