Building A Great Community in Ocala

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. At Ocala, she tries very hard to ensure all of the associates with whom she works feel valued and that they understand their importance to the overall function of the community. She isn’t afraid to jump in to work right alongside them, and she has even been known to break into a dance with them when they are celebrating their success!

On a personal note, to know Donna is to know she is a die-hard Chicago sports fan. She loves the Bears and has even named her dog Wrigley after that famous ballpark! She occasionally brings him to work with her, and all of the residents and staff enjoy his company and even find him therapeutic. She loves the beach and grew up in Scotland and tries to travel back there as much as she is able to see family. However, most important to Donna are her three daughters and three grandsons, who she says, “Are her heart”. She is immensely proud of them and loves to spend time with them whenever she can.

Thank you, Donna, for all you do each day to support our Pacifica employees, enrich the lives of our residents, and further our mission as a company. We hope to have the pleasure of working with you for many more years to come, and we are so proud of all the great work you’ve been doing in our community for years!

Spreading Joy at The Meridian at Westwood

If you ask any employee at The Meridian at Westwood about Jarome, I think they’d all agree that it’s pretty hard to miss him. He is tall in stature, but that isn’t what makes him stand out; it’s his personality. Even with a mask on you can see his megawatt smile, which he gladly shares with everyone he sees. He is always upbeat and positive and people are naturally drawn to him. Residents and staff alike all know Jarome and seem to brighten when he's around.

Additionally, when it comes to work ethic, he’s also hard to miss. Even before COVID-19, which brought its own unique staffing challenges, Jarome was always one of the first people to volunteer if a shift needed to be filled, even when it meant he may work a double or stay through the night. As an Army veteran, he knows what it means to work as part of a team, and to have responsibilities in protecting and caring for others who may not be able to do that themselves, and it is a charge he takes seriously.

Recently, when one of our valued partner vendors wanted to honor some of our front line staff, Jarome’s team nominated him and he can be seen proudly displaying the certificate he was awarded as part of that recognition package. It was easy for the team to nominate him because he truly exemplifies our company Mission and Values and every resident he serves and each employees he works alongside is better for knowing him.

Thank you for all you do Jarome for the Meridian at Westwood family, and keep smiling!

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.

Frances Norberte—Portrait of a Faithful Employee at Pacifica Senior Living Northridge

Mar 2, 2021 2:54:04 PM / by Pacifica Senior Living posted in Pacifica Senior Living, Employee Spotlight, Pacifica Senior Living Northrdige

If you were to look for someone who is kind, patient, and caring you would need not look any further than to our Northridge community and their beloved Memory Care Director, Frances Norberte. She has been a part of our community for 20 years, 9 of which have been with us as a part of the Pacifica Senior Living family. During these years, she has lovingly worked with that very special population of individuals and has been their ultimate champion, supporter, and cheerleader.

Over the years she has worked at Northridge, she has gotten to know each resident she cares for well beyond just the surface details—she learns their likes and dislikes, their social history, and how to help them live purposefully in spite of memory loss. She communicates with their families, keeping them in the loop of what their loved one is doing and ensuring they are always up to date on their care needs.

She is always calm, and has a great smile that her coworkers say is contagious. With so many years in our community she has experienced more than most. She is able to skillfully lead and guide other staff through tough situations and they all agree that one of the best things about working at Northridge is having her a part of their family. Passionate about her residents and with a limitless energy, Frances exemplifies our Pacifica Mission in creating peace of mind for our families and security for our residents.

Even the community dog, Jackson, loves her and likes to visit her in the memory care neighborhood. She has enriched the lives of all who come in contact with her and Northridge is a better community because of her. We are grateful for the opportunity to have such a special person in our midst.

Thank you Frances for 20 years of making a difference and impacting lives.
