Kensington Park is hosting on-site family visits, at six feet apart, of course. The community offers loving and supportive care in a variety of environments: Independent Living, Assisted Living and 3 levels of Memory Care. Their Promise is “to love and care for residents like we do our own family.”

Kensington Park Senior Living believes deeply in the power of family. “Our team embraces not only residents but their loved ones, too, by inviting them to become an integral part of life on campus,” says Mary Mell, executive director. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, families were welcome onsite 24/7 for complimentary all-day dining and cocktail hours, engaged programming, support groups and holiday celebrations.

When the quarantine began in March, it was difficult to limit family visits to virtual only, but everyone made the most of it. Then in May, the team was thrilled to welcome families back safely for in-person visits outdoors.

It is the community’s spacious eight acres of lush, park-like land that make these visits so successful. Across front porches, in the gardens, along walking paths and at picnic tables, you can find residents and their loved ones spending quality time together once again, while wearing masks and socially distancing.

Resident Mary Jane Conway’s large family is especially tight knit. Her children and grandchildren are grateful for the chance to see mom. “The staff has gone above and beyond to keep residents safe while doing everything in their power to allow as much time as possible for families to visit,” says daughter Nancy Quinn. “Their incredible warmth, kindness and concern for the residents is truly special.”
