Schedule a Visit

For the last forty or so years, you have worked very hard to get where you are. Odds are good that you have raised a family, gotten an education, climbed the ladder in the workforce, and given your all to every endeavor you’ve put your mind to. All of that time, sweat, and tears have finally paid off – you’re finally ready to retire! While that sounds well and good, you might be wondering: what can I look forward to from a senior living community in Macomb? Turns out, a lot!

Retirement should be all about your golden years, and you deserve to live it up as much as possible. To learn more about The Parkdale and what we offer our residents, keep reading!

1.) Making New Friends

Do you remember when you went off to college for the first time and you met so many new friends on campus? Our senior living community in Macomb is much the same, only this time around, you don’t have to worry about rushing to class or cramming for final exams! Instead, you get to reap all the benefits of a close knit community, such as making new friends with folks your own age and participating in fun activities. 

Humans are social creatures, meaning that we have to spend time around people and make connections in order to live our happiest and healthiest lives. For many older adults, senior isolation can be a very real concern. Isolation can impact one’s health and well being. However, living and being a part of a senior community can help prevent these things from happening. 

2.) Excellent Amenities 

We are all guilty of putting ourselves on the back burner now and then. Many of us set our own wants and needs aside in order to take care of the people around us. When moving to a retirement community, however, that tune will definitely change! Thanks to our excellent amenities we offer here at The Parkdale, we know that you are going to truly feel like you’re living your best life. 

  • Salon: 

Did you know that we offer a full service salon? Not only that, but it operates on location so you don’t have to travel or worry about transportation. Come by and get your hair cut or a deep conditioning session – you deserve it!

  • Housekeeping and Laundry:

If there is one thing that you should really look forward to in retirement, it is no longer doing chores. The dishes, laundry, dusting – we’re talking about the works here! That is why we offer up weekly housekeeping and laundry services to our residents. You’re here to relax, unwind, and take care of yourself, so you shouldn’t be keeping up on menial tasks such as these.

  • On-Site Theater:

Yes, you read that right: we have a theater on location! This theater has plush and comfortable seating so that you can kick back and relax while watching your favorite movie or TV show. All you need to do is grab a friend and the snacks and you are all set to go!

  • Dining Options:

Food is very important and not just from a nutritional standpoint, either (though that is a good thing!). You deserve to eat delicious food every single day, especially if you have been the primary person responsible for preparing meals for the last forty or so years. That is why we serve three tasty and nutritious meals each and every day to our residents. And once again, the best part of it all is that you won’t have to do the dishes afterwards!

  • Pet Friendly:

We know that your beloved furry friends are a part of your family. That is why our senior living community in Macomb is pet friendly, meaning that your critter can come along with you when you move. Animals are often therapeutic and add so much enrichment to our lives, and making the transition to senior living shouldn’t mean leaving them behind!

3.) Recreation and Activities

Part of retiring is making time for the things that bring you joy. This includes pastimes, such as golf or photography, or even learning a new skill or hobby, such as crocheting or racquetball. There is no right or wrong way to enjoy your newly acquired free time! As long as you’re having fun and the activity sparks joy, then you know you’re in the right place. 

Here at The Parkdale, we are proud to offer our residents a community calendar that highlights fun things to do. Participate in a weekly game night, go for a walk around our grounds, or join in on a sewing circle. You are bound to have fun and enjoy your time here at our senior living community in Macomb!

4.) Safety and Security

Everyone has a different reason behind making the transition to a senior living community. However, more often than not, one of those reasons is due to safety and security. For many seniors, this could include something like a health concern. Or, it could revolve around needing memory care services due to a recent Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis. Whatever prompts you to become a resident of our community, we want everyone to feel safe and welcome.

Moving to a community such as The Parkdale has many benefits, including the fact that you aren’t alone. Of course you can make new friends, but there are also highly trained staff available 24/7 to help with your needs. Medical emergencies can happen at any time, and it’s very important to have the right people at your side.
