The Care At Residences By Regency Long Term
Each Residence has only three residents and keeps a Caregiver in the home at all times under the supervision of our Director of Care, a Registered Nurse with over 20 years of nursing experience. The care ratio of 1:3, in a custom modified 3-bedroom home is far better than the average nursing home. Our Caregivers are deeply engaged in our residents’ day-to-day living, giving us the insight needed to tailor personal care to their changing needs. Our Director of Care is your loved one’s personal nurse. She will know your loved one intimately, communicate with you, coordinate with physicians, and advocate for their best interests at all times.
Not only can we provide assistance with Activities of Daily Living, we are also able to meet the needs of residents who require:
- Ostomy care
- Feeding tubes
- Catheter care
- Minor wound care
- Medication administration
- Diabetic care including injections
- Pureed food and/or other special dietary requirements
- Others based on individualized needs and assessment
Because we have only three residents and a 1:3 care ratio, we are able to customize activities to the needs and desires of our residents. These are some of the activities provided throughout the week, customized to the needs of the residents:
- Range of motion exercises
- Dementia centered care and activities
- Customized, resident-centered activities to stimulate both mind and body
- Resident-created meal plans
We are capable of utilizing mechanical lifts and other adaptive devices for residents who are non-ambulatory.
Residences by Regency Long-Term Care homes are strategically designed to allow residents to age in place. From personal care up to and including skilled nursing and hospice services, the environment is designed to enable our residents to receive the care they need in the community. Our residents will not have to move to a nursing home as their level of care/assistance rises; rather, the necessary supportive services can be coordinated and brought in to enable residents to remain at their Residence and to age in place.
