Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 07, 2015
Studies have shown that most baby boomers would prefer to age in the comfort of home. However, as care needs increase, a 24/7 care environment may be necessary. Regency Home Care owner Erich Schuetz wanted to provide seniors with a private home-like alternative to nursing home care, a concept that has been gaining popularity in Europe, but has not been available in the Atlanta area. After careful planning and development, Schuetz opened Residences by Regency.
Residences by Regency are single family homes adapted to serve as residential care homes. The residences offer seniors in the metro Atlanta area a home-like environment where they reside with three other seniors and receive round-the-clock care and assistance from qualified nurses and caregivers. Regency is the first in Atlanta to offer this senior living alternative.
Unlike daily life in a nursing home with strict, structured meal times and activities, at Residences by Regency, seniors maintain independence and set their own schedules. For example, some residents enjoy starting their morning early, while others choose to sleep in. Meals can be made communally in the state-of-the-art home kitchen, or residents can have make their own individualized meals whenever they feel hungry. All residents are encouraged to maintain the authentic rhythm of their lives within the community.
According to owner Erich Schuetz, the community aspect of Residences by Regency encourages social connectedness, something extremely important for older adults who might otherwise feel isolated. “Over the years, Regency Home Care has been able to help hundreds of seniors age in the comfort of home, but we’ve also recognized that for some seniors traditional home care simply isn’t enough,” says Schuetz. “Residences by Regency was created to provide the extra support and supervision to ensure the aging process is filled with dignity and respect.”
