Vintage Park was the host of the monthly coffee on April 12th. Close to 20 people attended, including KS Senator Pat Apple.
Shonna Looney, Director, took did a wonderful job sharing her facility with us. Vintage Park boasts a very homelike atmosphere, with tasteful decor and an exceptional staff.
She explained that Vintage Park is an assisted care facility, not a nursing home. The difference is that the residents of Vintage Park must be physically able to assist in their daily needs.
There are 33 apartments in the facility, each with it's own private bathroom and kitchenette. Currently, 35 people call Vintage Park home. Several couples live there together.
Residents can bring along their own furnishings and belongings. Several even keep their cars on the premises. Meals are a social time and take place in the dining room. Individuals can come and go as they please, and simply sign out upon leaving. Family and visitors are encouraged.
There is a beautiful court yard, spa complete with a whirlpool bath and new paint and decor (thanks to Shonna!), family style living and dining rooms, a full service kitchen, daily activities and weekly shopping trips.
There is currently a waiting list and the amount of time varies. Sometimes when potential residents are notified, they are not ready to move in yet, so there name remains on the waiting list while the next person is contacted.
Since it's opening in 2003, Vintage Park has integrated itself well with our community. They sponsor several community activities each year including the annual Easter Egg Hunt and the 4th of July BBQ. They also partner with local schools, take residents to the Senior Center for activities, and attend a once-a-month church luncheon, in town.
