Parkview was founded in 1914 as a not-for-profit retirement community to meet the needs of seniors. Residents can choose between monthly rentals and lifetime care. There are two lifetime care options that guarantee the resident will not have to leave Parkview, even if their funds are depleted. One plan offers 90% return of unused funds.
Residents can receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy rehabilitation, in cooperation with Genesis Rehabilitation Services, provided here at Parkview. These prescribed therapy services can be billed to Medicare Part B insurance.
Our new 44,000 square foot expansion encompasses 3 floor levels. The ground floor contains 15 private assisted living memory care apartments with a pleasant, secure outdoor wander garden.

"This place is a gem! It feels so much like home. My family was so lucky they had a nice one bedroom apartment for my Mother. I cannot say enough good things about this place."
"I moved into Church Park independent apartments about 8 years ago. I chose Parkview because it came highly recommended by friends due to the good care, the food choices and how we prepare our food. I have health issues and the continuum of care has been wonderful as I have been able to move to the different levels of care as my health changed and I needed more assistance. I moved from independent living to assisted living and am now in skilled care. Restorative therapy and Genesis Rehab services have been wonderful for me. I also appreciate that the administration is very helpful in working to take care of my needs."
"I just love it at Parkview! I live in the independent condos and especially love that I can come in and volunteer to help the activity department with games and events. I am also so pleased with the awesome maintenance crew. If I need something and I call they are right there to take care of it and they are so pleasant and friendly."
I made a very good decision to move into a two bedroom condo at Parkview about two year ago. I so enjoy the planned social events like our monthly neighbor meetings, social hour and of course playing Mexican Train dominoes. No worries about mowing lawn or shoveling sidewalks and when I need additional care, it will be available.
I moved into a Church Park enhanced independent apartment in February 2017. My daughter and son-in-law chose Parkview for me and it has been wonderful to be here. The food is wonderful! I like the variety of choices every day and it is always well-prepared. All the staff is very nice, friendly and cheerful. I have enjoyed every day here. I also appreciate the maintenance staff as they are always right there to fix any problem.
