As one of the guests noted, enjoying the hors d’oeuvres in the dining hall during Lake Park of Madison’s Open House, many nursing homes aren’t the hospital-like places they used to be, with the smell of antiseptic permeating everything. Instead, places like Lake Park are warmer, more cheerful and more inviting, geared toward whole-patient wellbeing. The more cheerful environment includes Parker the Therapy Dog, a specially trained animal who also lives there, roaming the halls and giving as much love as he get from the residents. The open house event invited members of the community to come in and look around a bit, with refreshments for all and door prize drawings for a few lucky winners. Deejay Will Alphonso, of Big W Art and Entertainment, provided the music.
