About Us 01

“It is rewarding to know you are well taken care of by the administration, nurses and waitstaff.” — Monell N.

What is Assisted Living?

About Us

Our staff works hard to make everyone feel right at home. No wonder most residents of The Parke come as a result of a referral. People feel comfortable referring their friends and family because of the exceptional care they experience while here.


 

The Owners

Our owners aren’t fond of the spotlight, but we can tell you this: The Parke was built by, and is still owned by, life-long Tulsans who saw a need for safe, comfortable assisted living in the Tulsa area. They take an active role in the maintenance and appearance of the building, and can often be seen in the dining room for a meal or at one of The Parke’s many social events.

Jazz Rodriguez, RN

Director of Nursing
I was born here in Tulsa, but have also lived in Albuquerque, NM and also Carlsbad, NM. I moved back to Tulsa my freshman year of high school. I started working as a CNA/CMA in assisted living 8 years ago which is when I fell in love with seniors and caring for them quickly became a passion of mine. I decided to continue my education in order to serve seniors more. I graduated nursing school in 2016 and began working as an RN in at Hillcrest South then returned to assisted living as the Director of Nursing. I have been a nurse in Assisted living for 3 years and absolutely love it.

I have one son, Emery, who is 9 years old. I enjoy spending time with my family, being a full time soccer mom, reading, or watching/playing sports. I also love arts/crafts and cake decorating. I am very excited to join The Parke Team and get to know all of the residents here.
