Why Memory Care With Regency
Retirement Village of Morristown?
Pathways Intentional Memory Care is our program at Regency through which 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 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 residents in the process.
Keeping active brings joy and excitement into the lives of our residents, and that’s why designing programs to encourage this kind of lifestyle is important to us. Memory Care programs are intentionally crafted to encourage new, happy memories, as well as movement. Our residents are full of life, and we seek to celebrate that with them everyday.
Pet Therapy is another promising facet of our memory care program, and serves to benefit the residents battling the effects of memory loss in many ways. Interacting with trained companion animals helps memory care patients develop meaningful connections. The act of caring for and nurturing a pet draws to the surface 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 cuddles.
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 the flip of a switch, the use of music has an instantaneous 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. Also, the benefits are undeniable.
Quality Memory Care results in fewer hospital visits,
improved appetite, and an overall higher quality of life.

Dining matters at Regency. We know that great meals are important for many reasons, nutritional and otherwise. That’s why we ensure that our residents can enjoy three, tasty and well-balanced meals each day in our dining room. Every meal is made with fresh ingredients from scratch daily by our culinary team, and residents are able to choose from a variety of dining options at each meal time.
Good food gives our bodies energy and can help control weight, but eating well may also help prevent diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even certain cancers. We also believe that mealtime is meant to be enjoyable, and we make that a priority at Regency.

We take time to find out about their favorite things, their families, and their lives, and we use personal items and mementos of the past to decorate their living spaces to encourage meaningful memories stimulation.

Family & Community
Welcoming our residents’ family members into our Regency Morristown 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 main 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 traditional, family-centered events soon.
In general, 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 accordance with the guidelines for assisted living communities set forth by the local health department to keep everyone safe and healthy during this time.
Communication is critical, and sharing what we’ve been up to and our upcoming events is a major priority, and important to ensure our residents and families have every opportunity to participate! As such, we create 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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in myriad ways, and our staff at Regency has worked to follow CDC guidelines and safety measures to keep our residents as healthy as possible during this time. Regency and the assisted living staff members within our community are completely committed to caring for families and residents with effective communication as updates are made, and with protocols in place that allow for safe visitation.
Our community has hosted multiple vaccination clinics for our staff and residents, and will continue to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to all residents who wish to receive it.
