The idea and vision for Palm Cove began in 1999 and developed through many years with Mark and Berta Jordan, who worked with their parents as they became Elders in need of specialized help with living their lives to their full potential. Berta's parents both aged with memory care needs, with her father's last years spent in a memory care institution, and her mother going through the long goodbye at her wonderful sister's home. Mark's parents both had heart failure issues as they aged, his father dying quickly from a heart atack, and his mother spending many weeks in and out of hospitals and rehab centers and choosing to spend her last days at home.
Through the lessons learned by these and other personal experiances, the Jordans believed there must be a better way to age, and a better way to follow the Biblical admonishion to honor our Elders.
Palm Cove is intended to fulfil the vision of creating a better place to age, where Elders are honored and respected.
