Park Place of St. John St. John, Indiana
The Park Place of St. John community offers a range of senior living options from short term rehab and skilled nursing to independent living. Brought to reality by an organization tracing its roots back over six decades, Providence Life Services has developed the community to provide an ever-expanding base of services to a growing and thriving area.
The recently completed Phase II of the independent living building added 54 apartments with a mix of single and two bedroom arrangements on three floors. About half of these units have direct access to the outdoors with welcoming patios and generous landscaping on the first floor, and composite wood balconies on the second and third floor overlooking the landscape below. Each apartment includes walk-in closets, in-unit laundry, and provides the opportunity to entertain friends and family at their own leisure with full service kitchens adjacent to the living room. Large windows provide ample natural lighting and views to the exterior. Each floor has a centrally located multi-purpose gathering room usable for community events, private parties or to relax and get to know the neighbors. A well lit and accessorized corridor connection to the existing Independent Living facility invites residents to join other community events or to enjoy provided dining services. With a separate covered entry and welcoming lobby separate from the existing facility, residents can come and go just as they would have at their own homes through the front door.
Phase II compliments the Phase I ‘Small House’ skilled nursing concept. With two 1-story, 10 bed cottages sitting on either side of the larger 2-story, 30 bed cottage the facility provides a more intimate and home like setting where residents receive focused care without the traditional institutional surroundings. Each private resident room has ample space for any assisted bathing needs the resident may have. Mimicking the feel of a traditional home each floor features a centrally located family room, living room, dining room, and kitchen to draw residents into activities and events for all. With access to a porch on each floor and a patio garden at the exterior it truly feels like home.
