Our family had an in person tour and immediately we were sold - on Friday's they have happy hours and from what we could see of the food and they way it smelled it was fantastic. Great quality meals. The cleanliness of the community also really stood out
Our family had an in person tour with The Parkway and it was amazing, they asked us so many questions about our loved one and really listened to all the concerns we had.
Our tour was great. It did seem more like a sales pitch, so they were not as personable. The facility is very nice, but more expensive.

I think that the memory care workers are better and organized more in memory care as compared to the assisted living. Try to show up and be there as often as you can because I feel that improves the experience as a family member. Its not perfect but its high quality.
We toured this community and it was very nice. I didn't see a lot of interaction with the residents but they did serve us lunch and it was very good.
Visited this place a few months ago.
We chose The Parkway because of the location, we liked that it was a smaller/medium sized population so it was better individualized care and not so overwhelming, and also we liked the layout and size of the studio apartment that he has. I do think that the administrative staff could respond to questions in a little more of a timely manner, but we have had no problem getting a hold of the CNA or everyday staff like that. The meals here are chef prepared and he really enjoys them. I feel like they have a good balance of people who want privacy and people who want to be more out and about and more involved, even during covid. Even though we were restricted, family were still able to come as well so that residents were not isolated. I would definitely recommend to others who are looking.
The Monday through Friday day shift care givers were better than the weekend or night shift care givers. I ended up having to hire a personalized caregiver overnight for my loved one during some medical conditions. Housekeeping and kitchen staff was better than the weekend and evening caregivers. The chefs provided good food. The memory care side activities were not as much fun than for the memory care residents than the other areas of the community. They have a new activities director that was trying to do more with the memory care residents.
Very nice Memory care facility infrastructure, wide halls, clean, well organized, nice outdoor area, rooms are smaller private studio with closet, utilities, cable & internet provided, private bathroom have shower with seat & multiple grab bars for safety of residents, all residents I saw at dinner table area looked like they had good hygiene, all services are not inclusive with monthly fee, I was disappointed this community has charted Bathing & Dressing services are not included in basic monthly fee? No medicare spin down
Parkway senior living has good points: food, and they keep the place pretty clean but lately the bad outweighs the good. They do not have enough staffing, especially at night and weekends. They do not provide their staff with the proper resources to do laundry i.e. stain remover, bounce sheets to get static out of clothes. They also distribute medicine at their convenience rather than when is is actually prescribed by the doctor. For example, protonics is supposed to be given 30 minutes to an hour before eating--they give it with all the other pills during eating as that is easier for the staff. The biggest problem however is not enough staff to care for patients--especially memory care patients at nights and on weekends. This week there were several times that only one person took care of 27 people at night. Often, they only have 2 staff.
[Name removed] gave a well-informed tour. The studio long-term care was a little small in area. Blue Springs is also quite a distance from my family. Will keep The Parkway in mind.
we have started the process for them to evaluate mom tomorrow for possible admission there. It has smaller rooms, but otherwise very comparable with our other choice.
LAnn Squared shape. small common area. small visiting areas around square. Room size like Brighton. no view from rooms.
Everything about The Parkway is the best we have been able to find. The people there are extremely helpful and accommodating, the community is clean, and they have excellent food. They have chefs, so the residents can pretty much eat whatever they wish whenever they'd like. They also have a lot of activities. Each day, there are things going on for the residents, so it seems like a very lively community. The Parkway is really the best place we've seen, and I would absolutely recommend it to other families.
Parkway senior living has its pros and cons. Pros: the food is good. They keep the place clean. Most of the time, they have enough staff to care for the residents. The majority of the caretakers are attentive and seem to really care for the residents. Cons: They do not do a good job with laundry and have ruined clothes. Sometimes at nights and on weekends and holidays, they do not seem to have enough caretakers to take care of residents You can go into the facility and cannot find anyone or often the nurse in in another section taking care of different residents. The communication is not good betweent the staff from shift to shift and sometimes with the administrators.
While looking into various options for my mother we toured this property. From what we seen the apartments were a little smaller than we would like. We also noticed that people were not participating in anything. The staff did offer activities with a card game room and pool area. But you did not see anyone participating. The dining room as well seemed pretty empty. They had open eating hours and you didn’t see many people there that you could mingle with. My mother wants people to talk to and she like to be social with others.
Wonderful tour and beautiful facility. Only two handicap units, no 1 bedroom units. Not able to tour handicap units.
I was impressed when I had my tour and I asked a friend who is a nurse and she was impressed with the staff level of care, they seemed experienced. I am happy with the care they provide for my husband and I think they are doing a great job. They are close to me which is easy for me to get to. They offer activities but he does not participate. I had lunch with him and the spaghetti and meatballs were good. They offer different choices of meals with alternatives if it is needed.
I find communication lacking for family in long distance situations
