Welcome to Park Centre!

Park Centre is a trusted name to residents of Newton and surrounding communities. We are humbled to be serving the children of some of our first residents, and to have their children say, ‘I know I’ll move here one day.’ Our team works hard to continue to earn that trust, and to continue to cultivate a real family of residents and team members. People say they feel that family atmosphere as soon as they walk in the door.

The WesleyLife Promise

We make a promise to our residents: if they deplete their financial resources through no fault of their own, they will never be asked to leave their homes with us, or experience a reduction in the degree of care they receive.

Assistance from the Good Samaritan Fund at Park Centre can make a world of difference to a resident in need.

Contribute to the Good Samaritan Fund

Park Centre is an active, engaged community of older adults whose interests vary as much as their backgrounds. Opportunities to connect, learn something new or practice beloved pastimes abound here on our campus.

Pair our hospitality with our insistence on fresh ingredients and making the healthy choice the delicious choice, and the culinary options in our communities are sure to become your dining options of choice.

James Hoevertsz Director of Culinary Excellence

What’s special on tonight’s menu? Everything!

Care to Step Into Town?

Neighbors who become friends. Friends who become family. That’s the way the residents of Park Centre describe their community. Here, overlooking beautiful Sunset Park, we treasure the connections formed over years of building a foundation in the vibrant community of Newton.

"How much does it cost?"

We offer both entry-fee and lease models to suit your financial preferences. If you choose a lease model, you’ll simply pay a monthly rental fee for your apartment. Our entry-fee model requires a down payment, which lowers your monthly fee. Choose the best fit for you!
