Why Memory Care With Regency
Retirement Village of Tuscaloosa?

PATHWAYS INTENTIONAL
MEMORY CARE

Pathways Intentional Memory Care is our program at Regency, and its primary goal is to create 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 activities with intention. Though there is no known cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s, we can effectively manage the symptoms through these techniques, creating a happy, comfortable, and safe environment for our Memory Care residents in the process.

ENCOURAGING
ACTIVITY

Living active lifestyles brings joy and excitement to our residents at Regency. 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 this beautiful life with them every single day.

IN2L PERSON-CENTERED
ENGAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY

An integral part of our Memory Care program, iN2L Person-Centered Engagement Technology applies user-friendly, stimulating software for recreation, social connection, and memory engagement for our residents. Interactive games and Google Earth-guided tours of their childhood homes help to create an expanded world from the comfort of their own homes. iN2L also seeks to bolster 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 aid in their memory care success.

PET THERAPY

Pet Therapy is another component of our memory care program, and shows great promise as a beneficial therapy for residents battling the effects of memory loss. While interacting with trained companion animals, an opportunity is created for memory care patients to develop meaningful connections. The act of caring for and nurturing a pet can evoke rich memories, but it can also help to reduce anxiety and depression. This simple exchange of love and affection often works to calm our residents by creating enjoyable distractions teeming with cuddles and smiles.

MUSIC THERAPY

Regency takes pride in our Music Therapy programs, yet another integral facet of our memory care efforts. Music therapy can stimulate memories using 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 greatly benefit from.

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

DINING

Dining matters! At Regency, we understand that 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 dining room. Each meal is made with fresh ingredients from scratch 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 know that mealtime is meant to be enjoyable, and we always make that a priority here.

INTENTIONAL CARE

We intentionally seek out opportunities to get to know our residents on a personal level, making meaningful connections. This is an important step in providing the best care possible. We put in the time to find out all about their favorite things, their families, and unique lives. We also use personal items and mementos of the past to decorate their entryways and living spaces to help stimulate meaningful memories.

Family & Community

FAMILY EVENTS
Welcoming our residents’ family members into our Regency Tuscasloosa 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 work to to stay abreast 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’ll be able to return to our regular, family-centered events soon.

VISITATION
Visiting hours are traditionally 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 everything! Sharing what we’ve been up to and our upcoming events and activities is a high priority, and instrumental in ensuring our residents and families have every opportunity to participate! For this reason, we put together 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.
