Our Members are what motivate us to make a community worth belonging to. Here are a few stories of our Members’ engaging in ways that inspire us.
Inspired by a study shared by Erika, a Parks Springs nurse, the team created Members in Motion (MIM), a physical activity initiative.
Park Springs Households respect matters of the spirit. A spiritual outlook and practice can enrich life, elevate relationships and improve health.
“You just can’t do everything at Park Springs, so you try things and of course there’s no obligation if you want to change. Whatever you choose to do, there’s a great deal of support from other Members.”
“Having looked at several others, I feel Park Springs is just better. It’s physical beauty is one of the things. In that it stands above [the rest]. In addition, the manner in which it’s run, the care that’s given to the people who live here…it just has a lot going for it.”
The Park Springs Household Model makes it possible for Members to benefit from engaging with, and around the pleasure of food and dining.
With the support of her Park Springs care team, Ruth, a lifelong gardener and Member living with dementia, continues to garden, adding purpose and beauty to her days.
“I know that everyone has my back no matter what happens to me, and I think that’s very important. It’s nice to have the health center and fitness center here. I like that.”
Engagement with music has proven benefits for seniors and offers an avenue of expression.
