    Parc Provence is made up of five unique and interconnected households. Each household is designed to provide an intimate and comfortable living environment, which helps ensure each resident receives the best possible care. Households are made up of residents with similar abilities and care requirements. Research shows this model fosters better care and stronger friendships. Our community also includes nine courtyards with lush gardens and spacious walking paths that offer our residents a safe environment that nurtures contact with nature. We believe each of our residents deserves to feel comfortable and at home.
