What We Give to Our Residents-Through the Holidays and Beyond

Thursday, December 12, 2019


The holidays are an exciting time. A time of celebration and tradition, the holiday season is full of gatherings and good times with friends and family. It’s a season of wonder, and a season of giving, and at Parkwood Heights, we’re proud of all we give our residents.

First, let’s take a look at all the holiday events here at Parkwood. December 6th, we kick off the holiday season with a concert by Parkwood Height’s very own Hand Bell Choir. December 13th, the fun continues as residents invite friends and family to come ring in the holidays with us at our Holiday Open House. Just two days later, on December 15th, Calvary Chapel Church will present a holiday concert in our Skyline room, full of holiday hymns and carols.

Of course, there’s far more to life at Parkwood Heights than fun holiday events. Everyday life here is a gift in and of itself. The social calendar is always full of fun activities, and there are trips and activities for those who want to be on the go. For our outdoorsy residents, we’ve got hiking and walking trails, a pond and gardens. If you’re one who prefers indoor activities, we’ve got a library and an arts and crafts studio for you to enjoy. We offer self-improvement opportunities through our educational classes, and friendly competition in the form of bocce, billiards, and horseshoes. There’s a lounge as well as a community center, a hair salon and barbershop, and a therapeutic spa, and when you’re in the mood to hang out with other residents, we’ve got dancing and theme parties, along with bingo. We also have a wellness center, game room, fitness center, conference room, and we offer our residents with scheduled medical transportation.

We offer our residents the gift of independence. We’ve got a variety of housing options, all designed to let you live independently while enjoying the benefits of our community. Our Patio Homes are custom built for people over 50 and offer the opportunity to live in a vibrant, active community, with access to our community center. Our Villa Homes are single-story homes with ample storage, a garage, and a huge front porch, along with access to some of our services. Our Independent/Enriched apartments are spacious and well-appointed, and provide full services for active seniors.

We give the gift of freedom, too. Living independently shouldn’t mean that you’re burdened by the responsibilities of homeownership. At Parkwood Heights, we provide lawn maintenance and snow removal, so our residents can live their lives without having to handle taxing yard work.

The food here is a gift as well. At Parkwood Heights, our residents enjoy delicious, chef-prepared meals, served in our comfortable Fireside Dining Room. Our restaurant-style meals are prepared onsite by our masterful chefs and served by our trained wait staff. Friends and family are welcome in the Fireside Dining Room, which is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but we also offer catering for special events and a private dining room for entertaining.

We also give our residents the gift of giving back to the community. Our residents participate in many different endeavors, from knitting hats and scarves for the homeless shelter, mentoring middle school students, and organizing food drives for the local food pantry. We even produce a Parkwood Heights Calendar to raise money for the Town of Macedon Ambulance. The residents of Parkwood Heights had a great time providing ideas and props, as well as posing for the photos. We have a great group of people here, and life is enjoyable, whether we’re doing something for others or just having a good time together.

During the holidays and all year long, Parkwood Heights is a great place to live. Parkwood Heights is a lovely community in which to spend your retirement participating in interesting activities or just relaxing, located just minutes from Victor, Fairport, Farmington, and Canandaigua. A picturesque, 122-acre senior living campus, it’s a great place to enjoy your time with friends and family.
