2023 Reflection on Word of the Year: Intentional

Category: Senior Living

Author: Belinda Brown, Executive Director

As we wrap up 2023, we reflect on months past and what lies ahead with our community’s journey. If you recall, our Personal and Professional Development Coach, Michael “Buck” Buckley. Challenged us to pick a “Word of the Year” in January 2023.

Buck asked us to look inward and consider what we need more of or what might improve our lives. The time has come to revisit our Word of the Year for 2023. To explore its impact on The Parkway Senior Living. Whether you’ve been an active member or are just joining us, this retrospective journey invites us all to celebrate the past year.

Our community Word of the Year for 2023 was ‘intentional.’ We achieved many successes throughout the year, living in line with our word and improving the community. 

The Parkway spent a lot of time focusing on the reasons behind decisions being made and sharing those with stakeholders. By intentionally representing changes, The Parkway successfully implemented key initiatives such as The Archer scheduling tool and The Arrow App powered by Cubigo. It hosted more fun events like The Holiday Tree Lighting. 

In every decision The Parkway team made, we were sure to include the reasoning behind the decision. The leadership team’s intentionality also led to them incorporating more fun into our daily routines.

The Parkway did a great job of living out the chosen word. We thought about, explained, and aligned every decision with our overarching goal of ensuring the happiness of employees and residents and fostering a team-oriented environment. The Parkway looks forward to much more fun in 2024 with all our staff, residents, family, and friends! 

As we bid farewell to 2023, we will carry forward the essence of our Word of the Year into 2024. The successes and strides of our community, the embodiment of our chosen word in our collective actions, are not just markers in time but a testament to the strength of this community.

I look forward to catching our 2024 Word of the Year blog soon!
