We were impressed with The Parkway; except that we thought the living quarters were a little bit small. However, I have to say they were not furnished, they were empty. And when the rooms are empty they look a little bit smaller than when it's furnished. I mentioned this to the director. He called about a month ago and asked for a follow up. So he said if we'd like to come out there they can arrange to see a furnished apartment. During the tour the staff was very helpful, very friendly, very informative, and she answered all the questions that we asked. We went through the dining area, but we weren’t there during meal time. But it looked very clean and efficient. The tour was very good.

Parkway Senior Living was very nice, but I did not like the way the kitchens were set up in the rooms. That was my biggest problem, and I would not go there because of it. Instead of having a high, normal kitchen counter, they made it very low. I know that what’s most people need, but I did not like the look of it. I felt that the person who showed us around needed more experience. He didn’t offer coffee or a sit-down meal.

Thank you for visiting The Parkway Senior Living. We want to ensure our communities are the best they can be and appreciate your feedback. We apologize your experience did not meet our goal of being a one-of-a-kind tour, including the opportunity to sample our outstanding culinary menu and beverages, and will work diligently to ensure this does not happen in the future. To address the kitchen countertops, while most are of average height, there is a section designed to provide multi-function use so residents may utilize the space as a table or desk. To ensure the safety of our residents, the height of these counters were determined so that residents did not have to use bar stools, which can pose a fall risk. We take the safety of our residents very seriously, and we apologize that any questions that you may have had were not addressed during your visit. We will work with the team to ensure proper training so all visitors’ questions are answered. We would love to welcome you back to the community and join us for lunch or dinner at your convenience. If you have any additional feedback, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 816-228-8866.

We thought The Parkway was very nice. It was clean and attractive, and the people were very friendly. We went into one apartment, and I really liked the size of the bathroom because you could get a wheelchair in there, turn it around easily, and then take it back out. It's very close to where we're living right now, so it would be easier for our daughter to visit and help us. Also, we're familiar with all of the surroundings and where we normally shop; it's all close, so we liked that. We had one meal there, and the food was very good. It looked like they had a lot of activities scheduled, but we didn't get involved with any.

Everybody was very nice at The Parkway Senior Living. It's a new facility, and so everything was very clean and fresh. The thing that was kind of nice was they have a little cafe restaurant that everybody can attend, which is very good for seniors. They also have an exercise room. They also have a big television room for the residents.

My parents were scheduled to move in the first week of July, The Parkway apartments were not completed on time as promised so they were delayed in moving in until August. As we moved them in, the halls were still in the process of being painted, their apartment had lights hanging from the ceiling, their microwave did not work, new drawers needed repaired, and the dining area was not open yet. The Parkway has been a huge disappointment for my parents and family. Their toilet has overflowed, repaired and continues to be a problem. As of tonight, their toilet does not work, They reported it this morning and were told a plumber would be coming to fix it. No plumber showed up, its bedtime and they have been told to go ahead and use the toilet and :"just don't flush it until morning." What kind of customer service is this? There is nursing service available to check on clients, but is very limited on what they offer. There is not 24/7 hour availability and this facility seems like it is more worried about inspectors and upper management coming around to visit the facility then the actual care and satisfaction of the men and women that pay hard earned money for a big disappointment of senior living.

The Parkway is a new state-of-the-art community. Unfortunately with new construction there comes the risk of delays. The delays were unexpected and not something we wanted for our residents or us. During the first move-ins we knew that there were some areas that would not be finished and punch list items remained. This was communicated to all residents so they could decide whether to wait or move-in while these items were still incomplete. Our restaurant was not open the first month but has now been open for quite a while. While not ideal, we offered catered meals until the full operation could be opened. The items mentioned for this specific resident were unacceptable and immediately corrected. To address the other comments, for clarification, we do not offer nursing services in our Independent Living except through third party home health and rehab companies. Some personal care services are available should someone need it. Given this potential need for extended care services, our Memory Care and Assisted Living will be opening in the coming months. We are constantly striving to become the best community and sincerely apologize for the inconveniences during our opening.

Parkway was beautiful when you go in. The entry way, they were painting it. There is a great room there with a fireplace, and that’s really nice. They were all so polite and so mannerly. I understand there is someone there 24/7. We saw the 1-bedroom, and it has a little kitchen, it has plenty of closet space, and the bedroom was a nice size. It also was on ground floor, and it has a little area with a sliding door where you could go out with your little patio thing. It was very handy-equipped which we definitely would need. The bathroom was enormous, which seemed to me like a little bit of wasted space, but I’m sure there were some reason for that.

When they do get of eating facilities in the cafeteria was a really nice set up. White linen type, and you can order anything from the menu from 7AM until 7PM, if you chose to eat there. It wasn’t really, they have certain meal times, but it’s really available anytime. They were having the dining room on the 3rd floor temporarily, and I think they had some problems with rain so they were behind getting in open, and then something flooded and so the kitchen part didn’t get all the equipment in as soon as they thought. The hair salon hadn’t opened yet, but it was very nice.

I like the fact that they were going to have transitional housing available, and it was going to be top of the line technology -- the newest technology -- for my mom. It is a new construction, so we are waiting for another week to move her in because the dining room is not ready. They were very friendly and helpful. It was new construction, so we couldn't see the rooms. We can only see a mock up, but it was going to be very nice. They showed us an example of what they do at another unit. It seems like they have a walking club and outings that they could go to. Maybe they would go to the zoo or to a movie. I haven't really paid close attention, but there was almost something every day. It is within walking distance of quite a few stores and shops. It is very close to a hospital.

From The Parkway Senior Living


Welcome to The Parkway Senior Living

The Parkway is a Blue Springs, MO senior community that offers the full continuum of care, from Independent Living to Assisted Living and Memory Care. The Parkway of Blue Springs is the area’s first Continuum of Care senior living community, focusing on providing a home for life for every senior. Providing a holistic approach to senior housing, Continuum of Care communities allow you to remain in the community you’ve chosen, with the neighbors you know, and the staff you’ve come to trust.

The mission of The Parkway is to address the needs of senior citizens, no matter the level of care needed, in a beautiful and spacious environment that not only feels like home, it is home.

Independent Living

Offering housing for adults 55 and up, Independent Living provides a community with services and amenities for seniors, with limited care assistance offered.

The Parkway Independent Living will feature 76 apartments offering studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes at an affordable price.

Each apartment will feature:
  • A full kitchen
  • Living space with functional table top counters to maximize space
  • Bathroom with walk-in shower and grab bars
  • Plenty of closet space with additional storage areas throughout

The community is an expansion of your home, providing plenty of space to entertain family and guests, or socialize with your neighbors.

  • Theater Room: Enjoy a movie with freshly popped popcorn or impress your friends with your Wii skills.
  • Men’s Lounge: Poker table and a classic feel makes this a perfect space for Friday night poker games.
  • Demonstration Kitchen: Learn a new recipe during a cooking class or engage in a lively book club debate.
  • Fitness Room: The fitness area provides a focus on preventative health and wellbeing. The space will have physician and care offices, dressing rooms, and equipment designed for seniors. We will also have an infinity pool specially designed with your needs in mind.
  • Salon: Why go to the trouble of booking an appointment, driving to the beauty shop and waiting, when you can be pampered at home? A full-service salon with massage room and pedicure station means you get the attention you deserve without the hassle.
  • Multi-Purpose Room: Residents, families or community members can reserve this space for meetings, lectures and group activities.

Assisted Living

Providing licensed care assistance, nursing and a greater level of oversight, Assisted Living also offers a vibrant, social setting for seniors. Assisted Living nearly eliminates all the need to move to a nursing home when care needs increase. At The Parkway, residents only pay for the services that they want or need. This way you avoid the costly expense of tiered services or all-inclusive fees that other communities provide, which force residents and families to pay for services that are not used. All Parkway Assisted Living resident receives regular, thorough wellness visits from our Wellness Director, so no need goes unmet and no unnecessary charges are required.

Memory Care

Memory Care provides a safe, nurturing environment for residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Care and services are specially tailored to the needs of residents with cognitive impediments to encourage independence, wellbeing, and dignity.

Influenced by Alzheimer’s Association training and consulting, The Parkway has developed a neighborhood that is welcoming, comforting and provides the dignity and compassionate care that one suffering from dementia deserves.

Each private apartment is designed for the comfort of cognitively impaired residents, including walk-in showers, height-appropriate fixtures, and locking cabinets to protect residents from harm.

The commons area features an open design throughout which Life Stations are placed to encourage purposeful wandering. Each Life Station is designed to engage residents through memories of rewarding tasks ingrained throughout their life, including an infant nursery for care and nurturing, wardrobe to promote grooming habits and self-worth, and work station for a sense of accomplishment.

A quiet Sitting Room provides a tranquil atmosphere for residents to relax, and the Spa Room provides a soothing whirlpool where residents with physical disabilities or anxieties can bathe and luxuriate.

We also welcome you to give us a call to speak to one of our friendly, dedicated senior living counselors. We are here to help you with your search for the right community, and look forward to assisting you with that endeavor. You will find our team is experts at moving and ways to help you finance your long-term care costs. They are available 7 days a week, including in the evenings, for your convenience.
