Fort Collins, Colo. (May 10, 2023)— Parkwood Estates, a Holiday by Atria independent living community, has kicked off a new $2 million renovation project for capital upgrades in design and amenities. The upgrades are designed to transform the community’s appearance and function, all geared toward fostering the social connections that help older adults live life to the fullest. The upgrades are expected to be completed this summer.
When originally built, the layout for Holiday Parkwood Estates focused on community spaces to offer residents an enriching and engaging social life. Improvements for these social spaces are the focus of this renovation as even more older adults are seeking an active lifestyle during retirement. Residents will have more reasons to gather and enjoy the many benefits of a social community to their physical, cognitive, and emotional wellbeing.
One of the focuses of the renovation is to create an expanded fitness room to meet the needs of seniors working to maintain an active lifestyle as they age. The game lounge, living room with library, atrium, dining room and salon will also receive extensive renovations. Other improvements include added A/V capabilities in all common areas, exterior enhancements, and energy-efficient lighting.
“For us, this will feel like an ‘extreme makeover’ to create new and enhanced ways for our residents to stay active, build new friendships and enjoy what inspires them,” said Joseph Koch, General Manager at Holiday Parkwood Estates. “We know that living in a vibrant, social community like ours can translate to greater well-being in older adults.”
Holiday by Atria communities like Parkwood Estates are guided by Atria’s established Quality Enhancement standards which includes high benchmarks for community operations including culinary and maintenance. “We are serious about investing in the quality of services we provide our residents,” said Sean Purser, Atria’s Chief Quality Officer. “We developed our quality program years ago and use it to make sure we do everything the right way.”
