Although it may not seem like spring given our recent wintery temperatures, Parc Communities’ Corporate Wellness Director, Angela Butler-Hackett, is already planning more outdoor health and wellness activities for Parc residents as the weather gets warmer.
Beginning April 16th, water aerobics will resume at Parc at Duluth. The heated pool will be nice and warm for residents to enjoy their exercise classes. Compared to land exercises, water aerobics is particularly useful in reducing stress on joints and muscles, decreasing risks of injury and muscle soreness. Residents with arthritic joints or those recovering from an injury often find water aerobics very therapeutic.

People use the term “assisted living” quite often, but many may be using it incorrectly. Add “licensed personal care” to the mix and things begin to get downright confusing. Parc Communities is here to help establish the difference between these two senior living terms to make it easier to understand when you or your parent(s) are looking to make the transition into a senior living community. People who need reliable assistance with activities of daily living (ADL’s) can find supportive care with our licensed personal care community.
Although assisted living and personal care facilities are similar in the state regulations they must meet, Parc Communities’ standard for licensed personal care stands out from the rest. For instance, theaverage staffing ratio for assisted living is one staff member for every 15 residents, whereas at Parc, weare able to provide more personalized care with one experienced professional for every 12 residents. Parc Communities also offers a more intimate atmosphere as we serve 25 or fewer residents at once, while assisted living must serve a minimum of 25 residents, allowing us to provide exceptional personal care and attention.
So let’s make this simple. Assisted living communities can help you take care of all your personal services. A licensed personal care community such as Parc Communities offers all-inclusive licensed care and assistance in an active and engaging environment. With licensed nurses and caregivers available 24/7, residents are free to enjoy the hospitality of the Parc lifestyle knowing that all their needs will be met.
