5716981The individual apartments at Regency Retirement Village in Jackson are designed to maintain privacy and dignity for those who are unable to live alone at home. There’s no shame in needing a helping hand with the activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing and supervision of medication. There are actually many perks to transitioning from a private residence to a community like Regency.

When choosing where to live, seniors may fear an institutional environment and prefer a place like Regency where the focus is on making the setting homelike. A tour of our community quickly reveals to a potential new resident that he or she will be surrounded by caregivers who want to know their concerns and will answer their questions.

Apprehension about transitioning from home to our retirement village fades once the senior has a chance to speak with existing residents and get a sense of what life is like here.

Our Assisted Living residents are stimulated with a variety of activities such as group exercise, social hours, bible study, Bingo and other games, Zumba chair fitness, auction time, musical performances, visits from Majik the Therapy Dog, movie matinees, manicures by Donna, movies, arts and crafts, and more.

Unlike seniors based at home, getting a ride to the doctor or to go shopping does not mean imposing on a family caregiver or risking getting behind the wheel. Regency takes our residents on scheduled outings as part of our mission to serve our residents and families while engaging in relationships, respecting individuality and valuing contributions of those who evolve our care every day.

Moving in with us means discarding many of the unpleasant tasks that we spend decades doing on our own like home maintenance, cooking and housecleaning. The apartments at Regency can be decorated with the comforts of home so relocating does not necessarily mean parting with valued belongings.

Seniors also gain the important benefit of safety, both in terms of having someone nearby to help mobility and requiring outsiders to sign in at the reception credenza so we know who is visiting. This safeguard adds a level of security that seniors just can’t match while living alone.

At the same time, outings for shopping, sightseeing and medical appointments are always possible when transportation is arranged in advance with the receptionist. With the new friendships our residents make after arriving, fun is never too far away.

A move to a senior living community could be just to ticket to a better quality of life for a senior and his/her family. Call (731) 661-9888 to set up a free consultation and tour of Regency Retirement Village Jackson.
