From Norm's first day at Central Parke the whole family has felt welcome. Because staff are well trained and understand dementia his care has been respectful and calm. Staff call us all by name and greet Norm which pleases him and he reaches out to say hi to folks as he passes them. Norm has been in 5 other facilities in the past year that failed to meet his needs and ours. Central Parke understands the disease and the staff works as a team to assure quality of life. His room is inviting, comfortable, and homey. The food is balanced and well presented. Norm often has seconds and delights in the varied desserts, though ice cream remains his favorite. The wide, interesting halls and courtyard make wandering in his wheelchair good for him and us. The surprise 57th Anniversary Party with private dinner, balloons, roses for me, and music was a special treat we both were able to enjoy. When I, as his care guardian, have questions and suggestions my emails are generally responded to quickly and our family is able to partner with the staff to meet the needs of a strong minded, particular, former GE Engineer. We give thanks daily for the Central Parke Community.
