The Best of Both Worlds

At Park Place, we tailor your care plan to provide assistance that fits your specific needs. You’ll be offered a wide variety of activities and social opportunities that are customized to your interests and abilities. And while you’re enjoying our dining and life-enriching programs, you’ll also get just the right assistance you’re looking for.

It’s the best of both worlds—independence with assistance. So contact us today and see the freedom that comes with Assisted Living at Park Place.


What is Assisted Living at Park Place?

Although people sometimes confuse assisted living with a nursing home, they are distinctly different. Communities like Park Place Health & Wellness Center offer private studio apartments, plenty of common areas within the Small House for visiting, life-enriching activities, dining programs, and much more. For many seniors, Assisted Living is the best of both worlds, providing them with a home-like experience that leaves them free of a private home's upkeep, yet independent and still part of a community.

Assisted Living Room

What is a Small House?

A Small House structure is designed like a home, not an institution. In our Assisted Living Small House, 30 private rooms surround gracious living areas and a common kitchen. The smaller space means the walking distance from bedroom to living room is short enough for most people to navigate without assistance, giving them greater independence.

Flexible Programming

Such increased independence leads to greater flexibility with programming. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Your schedule is formed around the natural rhythms of your daily life. Do you go to bed early or stay up late? Are you a morning person or need a nap during the day? Is a snack before bed a normal part of your routine? The Small House culture recognizes and allows room for different patterns. Your freedom is as important as your security.

Five Reasons to Choose Assisted Living at Park Place

For many seniors, getting a little assistance can lead to greater independence. Here are six reasons why, at Park Place, a little “Assisted” can mean a lot more “Living.”

1. Help with Everyday Tasks

Our compassionate staff is here to help with daily activities while maintaining your independence. People choose Assisted Living when they need help with daily activities like getting dressed, bathing, managing their medications, making meals, doing laundry, or other tasks. Staff are available around the clock to help people maintain as much independence as possible. Even if you don’t need that kind of help every day, Assisted Living gives people peace of mind. It’s nice to know help is there when you do need it.

2. Safe Living Environment

The Assisted Living program at Park Place of St. John offers a secure environment with a 24-hour emergency response system. So if your loved one sometimes forgets to take their medication, or would benefit from the safety and security of staff available 24 hours, our Assisted LIving services provides just the help your loved one needs — in the graceful and dignified setting they deserve.

3. Healthy Meals

Imagine getting the opportunity to experience delicious meals three times a day! Our talented staff focus on preparing meals that are sure to delight tastebuds and promote health. Meals can be catered to any dietary restrictions as well—we are here to give you the mealtime experience you deserve.

4. Home Maintenance

The days of shoveling snow, paying for costly home repairs, and general home upkeep are no longer a worry. Residents at Park Place don’t miss the maintenance that owning a home requires, and appreciate the fact that any problem they have can be solved with a simple phone call. They love having housekeeping taken care of so that they can focus on the joys of life!

5. Socialization

Assisted Living opens opportunities for new friendships, new experiences, and new opportunities for socialization. Knowing your family member is being well cared for and having their social needs fulfilled, you can look forward to spending quality time visiting with your loved one, having the peace of mind that comes with Assisted Living.
