A Story of a Saved Life at Pacifica Palm Springs

May 10, 2022 3:32:45 PM / by Pacifica Senior Living posted in Employee Spotlight

1 Comment

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.

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. Thank you for setting an example of excellence and service that we can all strive to emulate.
