When a senior moves from their home to Regency Retirement Village in Morristown TN, the transition may be inspire moments of anxiety, but rarely for those who first tour our community and see the high quality of life that our residents experience once they move in and get settled.
Yes, living in our own home feels good, but there are many perks to Independent Retirement Living in a shared community when compared to the stress and headaches of staying on top of home maintenance and feeling safe and secure alone. Why worry ourselves with these things when someone else is available to step in and take care of our needs.
At Regency, we cook for our Independent Living residents, do their housekeeping weekly, and provide activities and transportation if needed. Assisted Living residents require a bit more interaction as we help them with the activities of daily life such as bathing, dressing and supervision of medications.
Living here is not only carefree (which could potentially be boring), but also fun for those who make new friends and dig in to participate. Our regular activities include Bingo, bible study, FUNtastic Friday, Scrabble, Yoga, manicures, tea parties, sing-alongs, card games, live entertainment, painting and crafts, educational programs, and outings to places like Olive Garden.
When visiting Regency, you’ll see that we also offer the peace of mind that comes from living, at long last, in a place that is truly secure, removing the fear of falling with no caregiver around to help us for hours or days or a violent home invasion that no one ever wants to experience first-hand. Our precious possessions and access to the outside world still remain when we move to Regency – we simply enjoy a higher quality of life when we embrace this change and allow others to help us.
Today, there are millions of seniors living in unsafe or unhealthy situations, yet others live alone and are just fine. We aren’t here to scare anyone into thinking they need to move. We don’t have to. Life here sells itself. We do, however, work to clear up misconceptions. Unlike a nursing home type of setting that aging persons might fear, assisted living preserves a senior’s autonomy and control over their day-to-day lives. It’s constant care while maintaining comfort and privacy. Until you see it with your own eyes, you may imagine living in an overcrowded, institutionalized type of community. That isn’t Regency.
The first step is to call (423) 581-7075 to schedule a free consultation and tour of our Morristown, TN Retirement home. We sit down with seniors and their families to listen to their concerns and answer their questions. We know uprooting is a big step, but our caring staff is here to help achieve a future in which the next years are the best years.
