  • Parkway Village has a great staff, lots of good food, plenty of fun activities, and comfortable living. I am so glad I moved here while I am still young enough to enjoy the freedom and security that Parkway Village offers.

  • Lee B., son
    Before our father came to the Shell Center, his health condition was rapidly deteriorating. . . Over the past four years his condition stabilized, all of his needs are met on a daily basis, and we know he feels safe and cared for. We are very pleased with the care that the Shell Center has given our father.

  • Parkway Village nursing care
    Meeting with the administrator, the director of nursing (a nurse practitioner), and one of the two registered nurses on staff; observing a practical nurse making her rounds; and watching the certified nursing aides caring for their patients in a surprisingly immaculate environment were enough to give me a sense of relief that our journey for skilled care had ended. We had come home.

  • Independent living at Parkway Village
    With so many decisions to make in retirement living, it can seem overwhelming, but moving to Parkway Village was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have so many wonderful friends and neighbors and now that I don't have to worry about keeping up my home, it has given me so much more time to do the things I really enjoy.
    Mary E., resident
  • Resident happy with continuing care
    I chose to come here only two months after losing my husband. I needed the security of feeling safe while being alone for the first time in my life. Learning home and yard maintenance were provided gave me peace. Most important, though, is having so many caring, gracious, and fun people to mingle with. That was therapeutic and helped me through the grieving process. Parkway Village continues to meet physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs in my life!

  • Parkway resident tells about living at Parkway Village
    Moving to Parkway Village more than 15 years ago was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I no longer have responsibilities that home ownership requires. I, along with my family, am so very thankful that I am living my retirement years in such a wonderful and secure place as Parkway. Parkway Village is the place to retire!
