“My friend is getting excellent care in this community. The staff is very nice and caring. the community has an open kitchen for the residents to eat at any time the meals are excellent and she likes the flexibility. They allow her to have her dog with her. The community is always very clean and maintained. We would recommend this great community to other families for great care and value”

-Verified Resident, via A Place for Mom about the Parkway Senior Living

“From leadership to line staff, the amount of passion, caring and respect shown for our residents is exciting. This group of associates show true teamwork and care for each other as well. Staff and leaders following policy can be discouraging. Example, cell phone use. You can’t have a front desk person openly using their cell phone and then expect other line staff to follow policy. Leaders not being present with their staff. Pros – Friendly open environment”

“We chose The Parkway Senior Living for my aunt. We toured it twice. The location is close to where I live. It is brand new, and everything is brand new and beautiful. The kitchen is restaurant style, so you can have like eight or 10 choices for every single meal. It’s a very nice facility. The staff is very professional and the rooms are bigger than any other assisted living we’ve seen. This is a high quality, very ritzy place. They have a movie theater. They have activities for nine or ten hours of the day. Everything is clean, freshly painted, and smells good. It’s insanely nice.”

-Sarah, via Caring.com about the Parkway Senior Living

“My parents were original residents in independent living and have now moved to assisted living. The care partners & rest of the staff are all caring and professional and the facilities are beautiful. We feel my parents are as safe and as well cared for as possible.”

“This is an amazing place. My husband’s grandfather moved there last weekend. His apartment is large, nice and once they moved his furniture in. He felt like home and less confused. He was getting medications on time and eating three good meals. It was hard for him to give up his home but within days he loved his new home”
