Resident Spotlight: Frank Robinson

November 16, 2022 Lifestyle

Three years ago, Frank Robinson made the decision to join the community at Parkland Saint John. He was looking for carefree living where he didn’t have to worry about preparing his own meals or doing laundry and cleaning. When his daughter Judy discovered Parkland’s Assisted Living option, Frank was introduced to the perfect option that allowed him to remain independent in his own private suite, with added comforts and peace of mind.

Frank (pictured left) enjoys dining with friends and the delicious meals prepared by the in-house chef. He also appreciates having more time to spend doing his favourite hobbies. Frank takes part in daily exercise classes, goes on regular recreation outings, and loves to take part in art classes. When he’s not participating in various Harmony Wellness activities, Frank can often be found enjoying life. “If it’s a nice day I’ll sit out, and if not, I usually read or talk with friends,” says Frank.

When asked what it’s been like for her now that her dad lives at Parkland, Judy says “The staff make all the difference. They’re always willing to help in any way possible. Whenever I visit, everyone is very friendly, and they know my dad, which means so much to me. Having him at Parkland has lifted a big worry off my shoulders,” explains Judy. For Frank, he sees Parkland as a vibrant community where he can do more of what he loves, where the team members are compassionate, and where everyone knows his name.
