Short Term Support Becomes Home

July 30, 2021 A Day in the Life

At Parkland, we are proud to be a resource to seniors and their families. In addition to permanent stays, Parkland offers respite and short term stay options to provide seniors and their loved ones with peace of mind, with the comfort of knowing support is available in times of need.

For Jeanette Belanger, after being hospitalized with COVID-19 for over three months, that peace of mind and support was a top priority.

“After I was sent home from the hospital, I realized I needed some support,” says Jeanette. It was at that time she started looking for a short term housing option that provided respite care.

Parkland on the Glen was top of mind for Jeanette because her sister-in-law has happily lived in the community for over six years. Jeanette says she admired the beautiful building, delicious meals, relaxed, friendly atmosphere and the care they provide.

“I like having safety features here and transportation to doctors and hospitals and all of the social events,” says Jeanette. She moved in June and within a few weeks she made the decision to make Parkland on the Glen her permanent home and encourages anyone thinking about senior living to try it out with a short term stay.

“It was such a good fit for me,” says Jeanette. “With short term stays you can experience daily living by participating each day. And all your chores and health stresses are looked after so you can enjoy things more, relax and have a social life,” says Jeanette.

Perfect for those who need of respite care, selling their home, temporarily displaced or unsure if now is the right time, short term stay residents not only enjoy beautiful, accessible suites, they also have access to Parkland’s signature Harmony Wellness Program, exceptional dining experiences and vibrant community.
