The Best Choice for Senior Living in Birmingham

Here at Regency Retirement Village, we have made it our mission to provide the best assisted living communities for seniors that we possibly can. We don’t want to be a community that is just a place for people to come when they need help with their day to day living needs, we want to build a community, a place that is truly a home for all of our residents. For us, there is no greater honor than to have the trust of our residents and their families. We take great pride in being able to provide high quality services to our residents and we believe that it is a privilege to be entrusted with caring for each and every person that calls Regency Retirement Village home. In this month’s blog post, we wanted to talk about some of the components that we believe are central to our mission of providing the best assisted living care possible.

Compassionate Care

Compassionate care must be at the heart of any assisted living community that hopes to better the lives of their residents and provide them with a living space that feels like a home. It is not enough to simply have staff working at an assisted living community. The people who work every day at Regency Retirement Village have a true calling to help the residents that entrust them with their care. Our staff take the time to get to know each resident, building a relationship based on friendship and common interests as opposed to a worker-customer relationship. Every member of our staff has been selected because they show a true commitment to making the lives of our residents as fulfilling as possible. Whether you look at our culinary staff who take the time to prepare delicious meals for our residents or our on staff nurses who make sure that our residents are as healthy as possible, you will find individuals who give their all every single day. This commitment by our staff to put everything they have into the happiness of our residents has gone a long way in making us the premier choice for assisted living in Birmingham.

Amazing Amenities

When it comes to choosing the right assisted living community for yourself or for a loved one, it is important to consider the amenities that the community offers. Across the board, most senior living communities offer basic amenities such as furnished or unfurnished rooms, dietary plans, and nursing services, but we here at Regency Retirement Village feel that offering even more perks to our residents is key in making sure that they are as happy and healthy as possible while under our care. To achieve this goal, some of our amenities include:

•Prompt, courteous maintenance staff
•Secure entry
•24-hour emergency response system
•Paid utilities (except telephone)
•Transportation to appointments, events and errands
•Chef prepared meals
•Outdoor recreation areas
•Beauty and barber shop
•Smoke free building
•Residents’ council
•Daily social activities and events
•Assistance scheduling appointments
•Monitoring of general health and well being

By offering as much as we can to our residents, we go the extra mile in making sure that their time spent with us is convenient and relaxing as possible. No one should feel like they don’t have what they need in their own home and at Regency Retirement Village, we strive to build a home for all who live here.

Memory Care

Regency Senior living in Birmingham is proud to offer the Pathways program, providing additional Memory Care assistance to residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory related disorders. Our trained and experienced staff will create a care plan specific to each need of your loved one and provide an environment in which they will feel comfortable and thrive. This program offers a variety of day-to-day activities that are designed to keep seniors active and engaged with a focus on encouraging each individual to construct a positive environment and community.

Fabulous Residents

In our opinion, the thing that truly makes an assisted living community feel like a community are the residents who call Regency Retirement Village home. With residents from all walks of life and a multitude of unique backgrounds, knowledge, and skills, we feel that the people who call Regency Retirement Village home are what truly makes are communities feel like communities. When you choose Regency Retirement Village for yourself or a loved one, you are choosing an active and engaging community with plenty of people ready to welcome new residents with open arms. Being able to offer an inviting community goes a long way in helping new residents adapt to their new surroundings and engage socially with their fellow neighbors.

Adventurous Activities

In addition to making sure that our community offers everything that our residents could ever need, we put a lot of effort into making sure that multiple outings are planned each week, allowing our residents to get out into the community. Whether it is a trip to Lake Purdy for a pontoon boat ride, a picnic on the grounds, or a shopping trip at the local supermarket, all of our residents are encouraged to participate in the activities that have been planned by Regency Retirement Village staff. We take a lot of time to make sure that activities are planned well in advance so residents have time to sign up and, more importantly, we do our best to make sure that our activities are varied and interest specific. We highly encourage our residents to suggest outings that they would like to see happen and to give us feedback on past outings so that we can continually improve our activities calendar.

Regular Entertainment

Making sure that plenty of outings are planned is pivotal to happy residents, however, we also understand that in-house entertainment is just as important! For this reason, we plan multiple indoor activities every week to give residents a chance to have some fun, socialize, and see some excellent entertainment. Whether it is a crafting session or magic show, a movie night or a live musical guest, our staff works to make sure that entertainment and gatherings are never in short supply at Regency Retirement Village. As with all of our activities, we encourage our residents to provide feedback and let us know of any activities that they are interested in making happen.
