It’s our pleasure to introduce you to another of our award-winning communities, The Meridian at Westwood. Located in Ft. Walton Beach Florida, this luxurious senior living community is one of the true jewels of the Pacifica Senior Living family. They are an award winning community and proudly earned a Caring.com Top Rated of 2020 Award, which adds to many others bestowed upon them over the last couple of years, including the Best in Senior Living 2020 award, SeniorAdvisor.com Best of Senior Living Award in 2019, and the ORA Elite 1% Award in 2019, just to name a few.
These awards speak to the excellent service delivery they seek to achieve daily as they serve their residents and strive to exceed their expectations. This is further reflected in their staff commitment to their roles; this year alone they worked tirelessly to get the community ready for a Grand Reopening to celebrate a beautiful exterior renovation, to making sure all residents were well cared for during the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, to even weathering a recent hurricane. They met all of those challenges with dedication and commitment, proving over and over why they are worthy of the awards they’ve been granted the last few years.
We are so proud of not just the staff of The Meridian at Westwood for dealing with such extraordinary circumstances with the same professional care and aplomb you’d expect under the best of circumstances, but our residents as well. It truly is the people that call The Meridian at Westwood home that makes it such a wonderful place to call home. Considering the many veterans, retired professionals, artists and interesting individuals who call the Meridian at Westwood home it’s no wonder this community holds a special place in the hearts of so many.
We proudly invite you to join us in celebrating one of the finest communities in the Pacifica Senior Living family as we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff and residents of The Meridian at Westwood who have come together to make it an award-winning community for yet another year. Thank you for setting an example of excellence and service that we can all strive to emulate.
When you participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s you are part of a mission and team that spreads across the country. Just like everything else in the world at this time, The Walk to End Alzheimer’s may look a little different, but it will go on with the same commitment to ending Alzheimer’s that we’ve always had and always will have. But, with the changes to the world in mind, The Walk to End Alzheimer’s this year will be a mobile walk where participants will join via computer or tablet. The event will still consist of the opening ceremony, speakers, sponsor spotlights, promise garden ceremony, countdown to step off, and of course, the walk itself.
In the last two years, the Pacifica family has raised over $83,000 for this, and we are looking to beat our high water mark of $45,500 raised in 2019, so, we encourage you to walk wherever you are—home, work, neighborhood, park—wherever your favorite venue may be. Walk with your team. There is even a walk app so you can experience all the mission moments as you walk. Each Pacifica Senior Living community will be participating in their own unique way that works for that individual community. To start a walk team, join a walk team, donate, find out date of your local walk, or even just find out location of the promise garden, visit the Walk to End Alzheimer's offical page. If you would like to donate to your local Pacifica Senior Living Walk to End Alzheimer’s team, please reach out to your closest Pacifica Senior Living community and join us in raising money for this worthy cause.
Though we don't have pictures from this year's walk, see the good our Pacifica family has helped to do in 2019 with our participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer's. We're so proud of every resident, staff member, caregiver, family member, friend, even dogs, who walked with us to help find an end to this horrible disease.
