At Park Terrace Senior Living, our pedigree as a destination hotel lingers in the air. Grand-kids splashing in the pools. A pianist playing in the lobby. True to our roots as an Embassy Suites, you’ll find an experienced chef in our restaurant and a cocktail waiting for you at our Happy Hour receptions. All the while, our experienced staff takes care of the chores.

Of course, this is more than vacation living — it’s your home. With a comfortable apartment furnished just the way you like and friendly neighbors next door, life goes on as you please. Once you’re settled in, you’ll see there’s a real sense of community that just feels like home. Friends linger over a great meal. Neighbors walk dogs, play cards and catch a baseball game.

While we’re beaming with pride about our refreshing take on senior living in Phoenix, we think you’ll find our practical side especially appealing in retirement. To simplify things, we’ve streamlined your costs into one fee. Like being on a cruise, everything is included — meals, entertainment, and utilities in an affordable month-to-month rent.

    Laura Harries
    Activities Director

    Laura came to Park Terrace with great ideas and lots of experience.  She has previously worked with two other communities and through that has developed what we believe is a perfect combination of personal attention that encourages group involvement.

    When a new resident moves in Laura will meet with them and find out what they love to do, encouraging them to get involved in activities they enjoy.  And she has been known to create an activity if we don’t have one to suit their interests.

    Laura told me she loves to have fun with the seniors and watch them come alive when doing what they enjoy.  She is bringing new life to our activities department and we are so glad to have found her.

    Laura is married to Herb and they have 4 children; Rhoads who is 28, Joshua 26, Romley 22 and her surprise William who is now 10.
