Our mom lived in the independent living homes at Parkview. She had a beautiful home located on a peaceful tree lined street with a patio and garden space. Parkview Homes provided exceptional service and were flexible and helpful during our mom's move and her time there. Our mom didn't want to leave the home she once shared with our Dad in Lake Summerset, but she could no longer manage living there alone. When moving into Parkview, she wasn't excited. She did not want to make the change, but, with our constant encouragement and nudging (for years), she knew it was time. What she didn't expect was how much she would like living there. She enjoyed the ease of living at Parkview; appreciated the service and many amenities at an affordable price; she felt safe, secure, and taken care of, especially with the wellness check-in calls and nurse visits; and she quickly made wonderful friends in the neighborhood and with the Parkview team members by simply sitting on the front benches or at social gatherings. The residents and staff are extremely supportive and become one big family. She told us we were right to encourage her to move there. She said she only wished she would have done it many years earlier. It was music to our ears! So if you're like us, adult children trying to help a parent transition into a retirement community, or like our mom, a senior who doesn't want to make the change, we encourage you to take the leap of faith and give Parkview a try. Parkview exceeded our expectations. We loved it for our mom, and our mom loved living at Parkview!
Maureen and Neil, Thank you so much for the kind words about Parkview and our staff. It was a joy and a pleasure to have your mom live here at Parkview. It was so much fun and so rewarding to watch her take to Parkview like a "fish to water" in making friends, decorating her beautiful apartment to her taste (with some help from Neil she told me), enjoying her flowers and taking part in the activities and outings! She was always a ray of sunshine!

My mother was fortunate to live in her Parkview condo (independent living) for over 10 years. Due to medical issues, she moved into the Assisted Living section this past summer. We can’t say enough good things about the people that work at Parkview. They have made my mom’s transition go so smoothly and welcoming. Chris Kempel, Deb Gitz, Lark Musser, the caring nursing staff, the therapy staff, the laundry and housekeeping staff, and the wonderful kitchen staff who provide the gourmet meals have all played a big part in my mom’s health and happiness. My mom is more active and involved in activities now than when she was in her condo! Thank you Parkview!

I visited this facility
The lady at Parkview Home of Freeport was very professional. She knew her stuff and explained everything in great deal. The home was very nice but because it's been added on to so many times, it became a little confusing getting around in the community. They had a nice range of activities, like card games, a workshop for the men to tinker in, scrapbooking, and a lot of things like that. They had a bus that takes them for rides and dinner out once or twice a week, and I was happy with that. They had a skilled nursing attached right to it.

My mother has been a resident for approximately 11 yrs and she is very satisfied with Parkview Home. She started out in one of the duplex units and eventually moved into an Independent Living unit in the main building. The staff is very professional and friendly. They especially have been very helpful with her special interests in plants and landscaping.
She likes the menu choices in the dining room and they accommodate with any special requests. She likes to eat very healthy foods and she is very satisfied.
We think it is an excellent and well run facility at a reasonable price.
Thank you John for your kind words. It is a pleasure to have your mother as a resident here at Parkview. She is a joy and an inspiration to us all!

I am/was a resident of this facility
A great place to live, nice condos etc, friendly staff and residents in all different types of residences. I’ve lived in my condo but also spent time in the Health Center and got excellent care and delicious food. Lots of activities on and off campus.
