Enjoy this winning dish from the Meridian at Stone Creek. Recently we launched our First Annual company-wide Culinary Competition where we searched for the very best meals from our talented chefs, food service directors and culinary team members. Out of all our entries, and nearly 100 different properties, the resounding winner was Chef Ryan McPherson from the Meridian at Stone Creek with his entree of Maple Glazed Chicken.
Chef Jamie has been an integral part of the Pacifica Senior Living community for decades, and has inspired countless other staff members, residents and family members during his time with us. His passion, dedication, and heart make him a true standout within our community, and a joy to be around. The Culinary team and staff at The Park Lane wanted to honor Chef Jaime for his continued work and leadership.
He continues to be a shining light in our community, and a wonderful mentor and friend to so many.
We asked the team at The Park Lane to share a little bit about Chef Jaime, and the impact he has had on them and their community. This is what they had to say:
Our Employee Spotlight this month is the wonderful Lori, of West Park Senior Living.
Lori is a caring and thoughtful part of the Pacifica team, who goes above and beyond in her communities. She strives to make a difference each day for her residents and team members, building a culture of care, acceptance and compassion for all. She has been with us for six years, and worked her way up in the company, becoming a huge asset to the Pacifica team.
We are always so proud of the incredible and meaningful work our Pacifica team provides each and every day. They go beyond the day to day to truly invoke a sense of family and care. That love and caring has never been more real than between resident Carol W. and Velma P. from Pacifica Senior Living Palm Springs.
Velma has been a caregiver for over 17 years, and has recently joined the Pacifica family. At our Palm Spring community, Velma was assisting in the dining hall one evening when she heard some commotion. She scanned around the room and spotted one of the residents, Carol, who had a look of fear and panic on her face.
Velma knew right away that something was very wrong, and Carol was in trouble.
This month, we want to celebrate the amazing Carline from Pacifica Senior Living Rancho Penasquitos. Carline is a wonderful asset to both her team and the Pacifica family as a whole. Over the years she has worked her way up in the company, and become an integral part of her communities.
Carline is a hard working, dedicated, and compassionate Executive Director who knows the value of determination and teamwork. We asked her a few questions about her experience, why she loves working for Pacifica, and what advice she might give to others.
At Pacifica Senior Living Peoria, building a true family-like community is key for both residents and staff. The Peoria team is a caring and committed group that ensures residents feel respected and welcome at all times. The whole team works together to make Pacifica Senior Living Peoria the shining example that it is.
For 5 years now, Donna M. has been an integral member of our Pacifica Senior Living Family. While her home community is Pacifica Senior Living Ocala in Florida, as one of our Senior Business Office managers she often travels other places to help train and support other Business Office Managers. She loves doing this and is thrilled when she can empower others to do their best and grow successfully in their roles.
Nestled in a beautiful, serene area with spectacular views of the water, The Park Lane is a community worthy of being a part of the prestigious Monterey Bay area. With luxurious amenities, carefully manicured grounds, and just a short drive from famed Monterey attractions, this is a community that has it all.
In addition to the opulent interior and grounds, the daily offerings are equally impressive. Chef-prepared meals, carefully planned activities, and top-notch care provided by dedicated, well-trained staff further add to the appeal of this respected senior living destination.
The community offers Independent and Assisted Living along with Memory Care, all with access to the outstanding amenities, services, and modern floor plans that make The Park Lane a luxurious, resort-style residence. Residents may choose from spacious studios to one- and two-bedroom apartments, all with private patios or balconies, easy-access showers, and well-appointed kitchens, designed to help each individual feel at home from the day they walk through the doors.
With all of those positive attributes, it’s no surprise that their lovely building and dedicated staff have landed them The Best in Senior Living award again in 2020 by Caring.com along with the SeniorAdvisor.com Best of 2020 award. These accolades celebrating their ability to serve seniors in a manner that exceeds expectations are of vital importance to staff, families, and residents. They take great pleasure in showcasing the collective effort expended to cultivate and maintain the best-possible home for everyone who desires to make The Park Lane their retirement haven.
We 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 Park Lane 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.
Congratulations to The Park Lane!
