Community Offers More than Meets the Eye


Grandparents Playing Baseball With Grandchildren In Park

The baseball season has a renewed respect in Kansas City. Following last year’s Forever October series, the American League championship, and subsequent run at the World Series, the Kansas City Royals continue to gain a heightened regard within the city and the American league. As a result of last year’s winning season, there are a whole new legion of proud baseball fans tuning in throughout the bi-state area and beyond, ready and eager to share in the ups and unfortunate downs of rooting for the hometown baseball team.

A Growing Sense of Community

The excitement surrounding the Kansas City Royals also continues to morph into an ever-expanding element of hometown pride. As evidence of this, take a moment to scan the crowd at the next home Royals game. Amidst the many KC Royals jerseys you’ll also see shirts in every shade of blue such as the Charlie Hustle I (heart) KC shirts and many other variations showcasing KC hometown pride. It’s exciting to finally have a hometown winning team, but the renewed levels of appreciation and pride in the area where we live might be even more beneficial to its residents than a winning team. The success of our hometown boys in blue is largely responsible for bringing many different groups of people together to celebrate America’s pastime, bringing with them a common appreciation for all the things great about Kansas City.

Celebrating Commonalities, Embracing Differences

In an increasingly fragmented world of technology and ever-increasing speeds, an appreciation of the elements of community become even more important. Amidst the evolving changes, it’s critical to have a group or place where you feel you are part of something larger and there is a feeling of commonality. This not only provides a level of comfort but it can also invoke the feelings of being part of an extended family. This support system is particularly important when life becomes difficult and what used to be effective no longer works the same way.

A Community Approach to Memory Care Living

At SeniorCare Homes, we believe in instilling a similar element of community in assisted living for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and dementia. This centers on an intimate and small-scale approach. Each of the SeniorCare Memory Homes is located in a residential community and features the same warm elements you would look for in your own home, with the addition of critical safety elements and one-on-one nursing and specialist care. These elements help to minimize confusion resulting when an individual can no longer adequately care for themselves and requires full-time assistance. We believe this community approach is a kinder and gentler alternative to overcrowded and antiseptic care facilities.
