Friends Dot Logan and Fred Matthias think that Park Centre really rocks. There are so many cool amenities, like a topnotch fitness program, a cheerful and dependable staff, the availability of an array of knowledgeable speakers and talented entertainers, delicious meals with a great group of fellow residents and guests, and very comfortable apartments in a pretty park-like setting just blocks away from the hub of an active, forward-looking community. They can walk to church, stores, the bank and the library. The hospital and physician clinics are adjacent to our building, and, at age 93, Fred even walks to work at his law office two mornings a week. Fred & Dot regularly bike together around town and on trails throughout Iowa and as far east as New York State and Pennsylvania.
"We enjoy traveling, reading, attending concerts, plays, the opera and family-related activities. Fred plays trombone in Park Centre's orchestra, and we both are members of the vocal quartet. We also have fun competing in Wii bowling tournaments."

"After my husband passed away, I felt isolated and was concerned about being home alone. Now that I'm living at Park Centre, I feel very comfortable and appreciate the friendships I've made. This convenient lifestyle also gives me more time to do the things I want to do, like crocheting and painting. My children are very happy that I'm here and I would recommend Park Centre to anyone."

"We moved to Park Centre seven years ago, and wish we would have done so sooner! The freedom and flexibility Park Centre offers is wonderful, and the availability of on-site medical support and physical therapy offers us peace of mind. The caring staff and close proximity to churches, bank, hospital and library simply can't be beat, and our adult children are so thankful we made this decision."

"Everybody says they are not ready to move yet but at the blink of an eye your life changes. After my wife's stroke I became her primary caregiver and was also trying to maintain our home. Our daughter said if we hadn't moved to Park Centre when we did neither one of us would be here today because of the stress I was enduring. The only word to describe the care that my wife receives in Garden View is "fantastic." I can't say enough good things about the wonderful staff and the care given to my wife in Garden View."
- Bob Kilfoil
"Life in Assisted Living at Park Centre is good. The staff is very congenial and nice. Being here offers great peace of mind to my son who lives in Minnesota as he knows that I am in a place where I can get the individual care and attention I need."
