Comfort Matters follows five key concepts: comfort care, anticipating resident needs, knowing the person, person-directed care and staff empowerment.

Parkvue is part of the United Church Homes family of senior living communities. It is a full Life Plan Community offering independent and assisted living, short- and long-term skilled nursing and memory care to nearly 200 older adults.
