We’re here to serve our residents towards a better quality of life.

At Parkville Care Center, our recreation department is available six days a week and continually develops new programs based on resident’s suggestions and preferences. Activities are held on and off the units to assure all residents have the opportunity to participate.

The recreation department provides bilingual programming of variety in the morning, afternoon and evening to enhance and improve resident’s physical, mental, emotional, social, and cognitive well-being through a social and leisurely atmosphere.

Programming can be in a small or large group setting, independent, room-based, on the unit lounges, or even out on the patio. The process starts on admission where staff completes an individualized assessment based on resident needs and gathers their likes and dislikes from the resident themselves or family members based on their past, present and future interests and lifestyle.
