Parkwood Seniors Community is a “faith-based” organization. What does this mean?
The “Mennonite” in our name refers to the Mennonite branch of the Christian faith. Parkwood is operated by a group of 22 Mennonite congregations and 1 Brethren-in-Christ congregation from in-and-around the Waterloo Region. So, the religious beliefs of those churches – that is, their “faith base” – is part of who we are as an organization. And those beliefs shape how we approach our work and our care of residents.
The Parkwood Symbol
The heart and two leaves represent the spiritual, physical and mental qualities of the resident. The circle represents the community, home and staff, which provide an environment for nurture and growth.
