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!

Making Every Day A Great Day at Meridian at Westwood

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 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, 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.
