Independent Living

Parkwood Place is an independent living community of apartment-homes in a quaint, wooded setting.

Parkwood Place

The facility is owned and operated by Hugh Chatham Health, and its location on Johnson Ridge Road near the hospital’s main entrance makes it convenient for residents’ healthcare providers.

Retirement living should be affordable. For that reason, Parkwood Place does not require entrance fees. Residents pay a monthly rent that includes, among other things, meals, utilities (except telephone), and weekly housekeeping. Before entry, a security deposit of one month’s rent is required, which is held in escrow and is refundable.

Amenities and Affiliations

Parkwood Place apartment homes are all under one roof and connected by a single hallway. Multiple common areas (dayrooms) along this hallway provide extended space for relaxation and recreation.

Other communal areas include:

  • Front lobby
  • Dining Room
  • Library
  • TV/Movie Area
  • Beauty/Barbershop
  • Laundry rooms
