Looking for a place for Mom to retire, so we did the grand tour of the Parkland building today..
Wow. What a place! High dollar marble finishes in all the common areas. Even tile in the circular drive outside.
Open concept kitchen, complete with pizza oven, with full kitchen staff and pasty chef!
Piano Bar with bartender.
20? seat movie theater, spa, exercise facilities (but no pool, wtf?) Indoor driving range!!
Rooms were only average (considering price), nice granite countertops, but not much more than you'd see in the average Sheraton hotel room. They blew their budget on the common areas.
Prices? $3200 for a Studio apt, $4000 (IIRC) for a one bedroom.. Not obscene considering that those prices are all inclusive (3 Restaurant meals a day) and from what I saw, the food, kitchen and staff looks top notch!
Then we get to the various "assisted" levels.Are you sitting?
Enriched care, which is basically that your able to look after yourself with a little help dressing etc, $5500/mth. The next level above that, which is basically full on 24hr nursing "old age home" level, $8500/mth!!
I think if I needed that, my family would likely shoot me first
