What Does Assisted Living at Parker House Offer?
Parker House Assisted Living at Quincy Village is an innovative “small house” concept and the first licensed Assisted Living location in the area. Each of the three residential-style homes serves 16 residents and promotes independence and meaningful living enabling seniors to “age in place.” That means if additional care is needed, Assisted Living regulations permit most of those services to be provided on-site.
This concept empowers staff to focus on helping residents feel at home. Large dining tables, for example, are important so staff and residents can share family-style meals and chat about their day. Residents have fewer life disruptions from not having to move from location to location for health services. Assisted Living at Parker House promotes a feeling of being at home with consistent, familiar staff, family and friends, which has been proven to increase feelings of self-esteem, satisfaction and security.
Parker House was designed for 16 residents who will be encouraged to personalize their suite, including bringing their own furnishings and belongings. There is a residential home design with a front hall, living room, dining room, kitchen, and den with short walking distances from bedrooms to living areas. Parker House features a secure courtyard and a comfortable living room with a fireplace to encourage socialization — both indoors and out. The private suites are similar to a studio apartment in the sense that the resident will have a private bedroom with their own kitchenette and bathroom.
