Why Memory Care With Regency
Retirement Village of Birmingham?

PATHWAYS INTENTIONAL
MEMORY CARE

Pathways Intentional Memory Care is our program at Regency, and through it we focus on creating a positive environment and community for memory care residents. Drawing on non-drug therapies such as pet and music therapy, as well as iN2L– an engagement technology that incorporates user-friendly software and interactive games, we work to help preserve memory skills through intentional activities. Though there is no current cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s, we can manage the symptoms through these techniques and create a happy, comfortable, and safe environment for our Memory Care residents in the process.

ENCOURAGING
ACTIVITY

Remaining active brings joy and excitement to the lives of our residents. Designing programs for our residents to achieve a stimulating lifestyle is important to us. Memory Care programs are intentionally crafted to encourage new, happy memories, and movement. Our residents are full of life, and we seek to celebrate life with them everyday.

IN2L PERSON-CENTERED
ENGAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY

An integral part of our Memory Care program, iN2L Person-Centered Engagement Technology applies easy-to-use, stimulating software for recreation, social connection, and memory engagement for our residents who benefit from it. Interactive games and Google Earth-guided tours of their childhood homes create an expanded world from the comfort of their own neighborhoods. iN2L also seeks to foster more interactive communication with family, friends, and caregivers. Together we can develop a personalized account for your loved one, filled with their favorite activities to bolster their memory care success.

PET THERAPY

Pet Therapy is another helpful component of our memory care program, and shows great promise as a beneficial therapy for residents battling memory loss. While interacting with trained companion animals, opportunities are created for memory care patients to develop meaningful connections. The act of caring for and nurturing a pet evokes rich memories, while also helping to reduce anxiety and depression. This simple exchange of love and care often works to calm our residents by creating enjoyable distractions teeming with hugs and smiles.

MUSIC THERAPY

Regency takes pride in our Music Therapy programs, yet another helpful facet of our memory care efforts. Music therapy can stimulate memories through the use of songs residents recognize and enjoy. The results are truly inspiring! Like flipping a switch, the use of music has an immediate impact on activating the cognitive process. We find that music therapy often results in dancing, smiles, happiness, and the kind of life enrichment our loved ones deserve and benefit from.

Quality Memory Care results in fewer hospital visits,
improved appetite, and an overall higher quality of life.

What Makes Regency
So Special?

CUSTOMIZED CARE

It’s important to us that our residents feel encouraged and supported, so we work diligently to provide continuous, individualized care as they navigate their days here at Regency. We specialize in Memory Care with the most Specialty Care Assisted Living licenses in North Alabama for individuals with all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, and we create a tailored approach with which to address the unique needs of each individual in our care. Every person is different, and we believe that should drive our efforts to serve them well.

FAMILY ATMOSPHERE

Our communities seek to create feelings of home, safety, cleanliness, and comfort, and we understand how that positively impacts our residents, especially those in the memory care program. Consistency, kindness, and reassurance are vital to the success of memory care efforts, and that is what you and your loved one can expect at Regency. We understand that the little things can make the biggest difference.

SAFETY AND CARE

The safety of our residents paramount at Regency. As such, medication reminders administered by nurses and trained caregivers keep your loved ones healthy and reduce the risk of negative drug interactions. Also, chronic conditions such as diabetes or Parkinson’s are monitored and factored into personalized nutrition and exercise programs. Our safety-optimized facility provides an ideal environment for those with mobility issues, as well. We work to ensure that each resident’s needs are fully met, and, of course, that Regency feels like home.

CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENT

Our Christian values drive everything we do here at Regency. Love, service, patience, and respect for others are core components of our mission as caregivers and as human beings. Our community aims to provide compassionate care for mind, body, and soul, because we know this to be our greatest purpose in Christ. In short, our faith has helped us create an atmosphere of love at Regency, and we seek to share that with you and yours.

SMALLER PROVIDER

Being a small provider of senior care allows us to offer what many others facilities cannot– personalized care. We’re proud to be fully-engrained community members, offering our residents authentic experiences, and always remaining true to our word.

DINING

Senior dining matters at Regency. We know great meals are important for many reasons, nutritional and otherwise. That’s why we ensure that our residents can enjoy three delicious and well-balanced meals daily in our community dining room. Each meal is made from scratch, with fresh ingredients daily by our culinary team, and residents are able to select from a variety of dining options at each meal.

Good food gives our bodies energy, and also can help control weight, but eating well may also help to prevent some diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even some cancers. We also believe that mealtime is meant to be enjoyable, and we always make that a priority here.

INTENTIONAL CARE

We work to make meaningful connections with our residents, intentionally seeking out opportunities to get to know them on a personal level. This is a critical component of providing the best care possible. We work to find out all about their favorite things, learning about their families and unique lives, and we use personal items and mementos of the past to help stimulate meaningful memories.

Family & Community

FAMILY EVENTS

Welcoming our residents’ family members into our Regency Birmingham community as much as possible is an important aspect of our monthly event calendar, dietary program, and all major holidays.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, much of that activity has been put on hold. With the health and safety of our residents being our #1 concern, we also understand engagement and visitation with friends and family is more important now than ever before. We continue to stay on top of local policy, CDC guidelines, and industry protocols to give our residents every opportunity to engage with their loved ones while remaining healthy both mentally and physically. We are hopeful that we may return to our normal family-centered events soon.

VISITATION
Traditionally, visiting hours are unlimited, and the front lobby is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Guests visiting after hours can ring the front doorbell to obtain entrance into the community.

While the coronavirus pandemic has affected the way we approach visitors, we’re happy to help arrange visits with family and friends in coherence with the guidelines for retirement communities set forth by the local health department to keep everyone safe and healthy during this time.

Monthly Newsletters

Communication is key! Sharing what we’ve been up to and our upcoming events and activities is a top priority, and critical to ensuring our residents and families have every opportunity to participate! As such, we produce a newsletter each month with a print edition featuring some classic word games and community news for our residents, as well as a digital newsletter which is sent to family via email.
