Our Tuscaloosa Memory Care Neighborhood
Making the most of life’s little moments
The Pathways program provides additional Memory Care assistance to residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory-related disorders. Dedicated to working closely with you and your loved ones, our trained and experienced staff will create a care plan specific to each need and provide an environment in which he or she will feel comfortable and thrive.
Our safe and secure environment offers a variety of day-to-day activities designed to keep seniors active and engaged. Our focus is to encourage each individual, their unique personalities, and abilities to construct a positive environment and community, rather than focusing on limitations.
The Pathways Difference.
Quality Memory Care results in fewer hospital visits, improved appetite, and an overall higher quality of life. At Pathways, we treasure the opportunities we’re given to know your loved ones and help them to not only minimize their discomfort and pain, but also experience future moments of happiness, kindness, and laughter in our Memory Care community.
What is Intentional Memory Care?
We intentionally seek out opportunities to get to know our residents on a personal level, making meaningful connections. We know their favorite things, their family, and use personal items or mementos of the past to decorate their entryways and living space. Our Neighborhoods evoke a feeling of home, safety, cleanliness, and comfort. Consistency, kindness, and reassurance is what you and your loved one can expect and rely upon.
A New Experience.
Medication reminders administered by nurses and trained caregivers keep your loved ones healthy and reduce the risk of negative drug interactions. Chronic conditions such as diabetes or Parkinson’s are monitored and factored into personalized nutritional and exercise programs. Our safety optimized environment provides an ideal solution for those with mobility issues.
After a lifetime of working hard and raising families, our loved ones deserve a high quality of life with a relaxed atmosphere.
iN2L Person-Centered Engagement Technology
iN2L Person-Centered Engagement Technology applies easy-to-use, stimulating software for recreation, social connection, and memory engagement. Interactive games and Google Earth guided tours of their childhood homes create an expanded world from the comfort of their Neighborhood. iN2L fosters more interactive communication with family, friends, and caregivers. Together we can develop a personalized account for your loved one, filled with their favorite activities.
Pet Therapy shows great promise as a beneficial therapy. While interacting with trained companion animals, an opportunity is created for meaningful connections to occur. The act of caring for and nurturing a pet evokes rich memories, reducing anxiety and depression. This simple exchange of love and care can calm our residents by creating an enjoyable distraction filled with hugs and smiles.
Regency takes pride in our Music Therapy programs. Music therapy stimulates memories by the use of songs residents know and love. The results are inspiring! Like flipping a switch, the use of music has an immediate impact on activating the cognitive process. Music therapy results: dancing, smiles, happiness, and the kind of life enrichment our loved ones deserve.
Remaining active brings joy and excitement to our residents’ lives. Designing programs for our residents to achieve a stimulating lifestyle is important to us. Memory Care programs are catered to encourage new, happy memories, and movement.

Mary has been more alert, awake and engaged in activities when she is able to hold the cat. The cat is so lifelike, purrs and wiggles. Mary is thrilled as she pets and talks to it. She comes alive.Caregiver
Mrs. Morris really enjoys the cat. She is more alert when the cat is present and she has named him “James.”Caregiver
The memory care TV program used today was a great memory jogger and information introduction. The residents were engaged and seemed to enjoy the interaction with each other and the game.Frankie Brost
