Mount Alverna Monument


A Beautiful And Lasting Memorial

Honoring 142 Residents Who Passed During The Pandemic

Mount Alverna Village is a senior facility located in Parma, Ohio. The Franciscan-based community consists of independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing facilities.

Like all similar Ohio senior properties, the buildings were ordered closed to family and visitors during the height of the pandemic period. From March 15, 2020 to March 31, 2021, Mount Alverna discharged over 328 residents, of which 142 passed from a host of ailments including  cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and the Covid-19 virus.

“This beautiful monument took over a year of planning,” said Executive Director Patrick Welsh. “It is dedicated to the 142 residents whom our Lord called home.”
