What are the differences between Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care?
Independent Living is a lifestyle that allows seniors to maintain their current everyday living, while at the same time offering them a sense of community, specialized amenities and tailored services that are designed to keep them active and healthy. Assisted Living affords seniors a greater level of assistance with activities of daily living so that independence and dignity are maintained in a friendly and caring environment. Memory Care is a special neighborhood for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related illnesses. Memory Care offers safety, comfort and appropriate social interaction where each resident is cared for and treated with respect and compassion.
What distinguishes The Parkway Senior Living from other area communities?
The Parkway is a continuum of care community focused on dignity, respect and quality of life where residents can age in place. We also pride ourselves on wellness-minded programs highlighting the importance of social, mental and physical well-being. At The Parkway, each apartment is designed with aging in mind for comfort and safety. Whether a resident of our independent living or our Memory Care, each and every detail of the community, its amenities, and its programs are chosen to provide superior quality and comfort.
What does it cost to live at The Parkway?
We understand that financial obligations are a large part of choosing a senior living community. At The Parkway, each neighborhood offers a variety of customizable options and choices to best suit your budget. There are VA benefits available to certain Veterans and Surviving Spouses to assist in paying for your cost of living. Additionally, a portion of the rent may also be tax-deductible as a medical expense.
