Kensington Park Senior Living blends joyful residents and passionate families with an experienced team on one campus that feels like home. The community’s strong spirit to serve is reflected through their group of selfless volunteers.
Millie Savage, a resident, spends her Wednesdays serving lunch in Memory Care to honor her late husband, Albert. “I do it for the joy it brings to my heart,” she says. Millie’s son Joe, his wife, Patty Savage, and her sister, Karen Pecoraro, whose mom is a resident, bartend at happy hours across campus. They wanted to make a difference in residents’ lives but quickly realized the experience was making a difference in their own.
Betsy Davis was inspired by her father, a lifelong volunteer. Following in his footsteps, she wanted to give back to others. She fulfills purpose for residents as they engage in her photography class and celebrate their many ribbons won at the Montgomery County Fair. Sandy Mayer gardens with residents to honor her late mom, Laura. She says it has been therapeutic to give residents comfort and see them smile.
Allen Farrar dedicates his Sundays to laughing over comics with residents in memory of his late wife. He says, “I feel the presence of Helen when I am there. My service is its own reward.” Finally, every home needs a pet. Carson the dog has been spreading companionship and kisses since he was a puppy.
Kensington Park is fortunate to have volunteers help carry out their mission to “love and care for your family as we do our own.” They offer compassionate care in many environments: independent living, assisted living and three levels of memory care.
