City Officials: New Senior Living Community a "Jewel" and Provides Boost for City of Elmhurst
Park Place Celebrates Grand Opening, Welcomes Residents to Life Care Community
“Park Place is a wonderful addition to the City of Elmhurst,” says Elmhurst Mayor Peter DiCianni. “It represents a significant investment in senior living, provides a positive impact, and adds another jewel to our community.”
Park Place is situated on 12.5 acres and includes 173 maintenance-
“It’s been amazing to see the number of people step forward and say, ‘This is what the city needed, and Park Place is exactly the lifestyle I want for my retirement,’”
The community offers an array of lifestyle options and levels of care that’s unmatched within the confines of the city. The development has already created nearly 100 jobs and also enabled many longtime Elmhurst residents to stay in the city instead of moving away from the place they call home. Many of the residents, who have chosen to live at Park Place, will also be at the grand opening ceremony.
“It’s a milestone day for our organization,”
“Older adults in the area have been wanting something different, something fulfilling, a community with flexibility and lifestyle options they can’t find anywhere else,” Engelsman says. “And given the changing times, we’ve made it a top priority to provide seniors with a sense of security — they want to know that everything they’ve worked hard to attain in life is protected.”
The majority of new residents consider the lifestyle at Park Place to be the biggest appeal. Residents have easy access to a variety of nearby shopping, dining and entertainment options. But the activities, social life and lifelong learning opportunities on campus are also a big draw for residents.
Park Place of Elmhurst offers restaurant-style dining options, a fitness center with an indoor pool, creative studio, media room, club room and ample underground parking. A variety of continuing education programs are available through nearby colleges. The community also offers intergenerational programs through a partnership with neighboring Timothy Christian School.
Residents value the health services and support designed for their specific needs and interests. The Life Care component at Park Place is a benefit that provides for predictable health care expenses through on-site care at discounted costs to residents. The continuum of care on campus includes assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing, if needed in the future.
Photo/video opportunities are available at the grand opening celebrations, as well as interviews with residents and community staff. Park Place of Elmhurst is located at 1050 South Euclid Ave., Elmhurst, Ill. For more information, visit www.ParkPlaceElmhurst.com or call (630) 333-4343.
