SLIDELL, LA – (8/4/2014) – Schonberg & Associates has officially announced its recent acquirement of the Camellia Gardens Retirement Community, and the new ownership is looking forward to continuing and building upon the establishment’s current reputation of excellence in assisted living and memory care under the name Park Provence, starting with a $1 million dollar renovation to ensure the absolute highest level of comfort and care for residents.

Located at 1925 Possum Hollow Rd. in Slidell, Park Provence is a state-of-the-art assisted living and memory care community that provides highly personalized, unparalleled care to seniors in need of special assistance. Tucked away on 20 acres of beautiful woodlands, this scenic community includes a tranquil lake surrounded by a walking path, as well as 82 luxury live-in suites that offer 15 different floor plans for residents to choose from.

Park Provence is owned and operated by Schonberg & Associates, owner and operator of Vista Shores in New Orleans, Ashton Manor in Luling, and other exceptional communities throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina. Schonberg & Associates recently developed Beau Provence, the highly anticipated and only memory care exclusive community in the greater New Orleans area, which is set to open September 1st. Owner and managing partner David Schonberg founded Schonberg &Associates in 2001 because of his deep-seated belief that every senior has the right to unsurpassed, individualized care that allows them to thrive and maintain an optimum quality of life, purpose, and health. He looks forward to continuing that tradition at Park Provence, stating that “Schonberg &Associates expertise and vision is at the forefront of our industry, and we are committed to redefining the standard of excellence in both the assisted living and memory care category.”

Park Provence employs an experienced and caring team of experts that includes a memory care manager, an activities coordinator, and highly involved Executive Director Susan Pappalardo. Susan is thrilled to be an integral part of Schonberg & Associates’ new community, noting that “the overwhelming success of Schonberg’s other communities is a strong testament to David’s superior program model and expertise, and I am very excited to see Park Provence become a part of that. I look forward to helping this community reach even greater levels of excellence!”
