When a new team member joins the Parkstone Enhanced Care family, the first person they are greeted by is Quality and Education Advisor Lori Wilton. Her warm personality shines through as she begins showing them the ropes through the orientation process. This is a special time for Lori as she has walked more than a mile in their shoes. You see, Lori has been working at Parkstone since it opened in April 2002.

When she looks back over her time working in the licensed long term care community, the word “family” comes to mind.

“In 2003, when Hurricane Juan hit the Halifax area, I remember all of the Home Office people coming up to help out,” says Lori. “They were making toast, feeding residents, making beds, anything they could do to support us.”

Recreation and Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Kirby has also worked at Parkstone since the community began welcoming residents. She says the team atmosphere has made Parkstone a wonderful place to grow her career and an excellent place for residents to live.

“There’s big spacious private rooms, private washrooms and it’s a bright and inviting building,” says Jennifer. “It’s pleasant and the team members are pleasant.” A celebration to mark the milestone anniversary was held on April 22.
