The Regent Court Lifestyle
The Regent Court Lifestyle
At Regent Court®, residents have an opportunity to contribute to our family. Our residents make the memory care at Regent Court the distinctive and empowering place that it is. Treating people well – with respect, trust, care, and good humor – is tantamount to our memory care approach
A place of vibrancy and life, Regent Court promotes meaning and joy in the lives of our residents, their families, and our Corvallis team. Seniors inspire, motivate, and guide us. As we work to create an empowering culture for our residents, we are building a dignified future for anyone who will ever live with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and related conditions.
A responsive and adaptive community, we invite suggestions from residents, families, and team members that help make Regent Court a more enriching environment. Continually striving for excellence, we keep Regent Court a caring community where our values of kindness and dignity can flourish.
Your Lifestyle Your Way
At Regent Court, we believe that elderhood is the crescendo of a lifetime. By creating an environment that supports person-centered, resident-directed care, where we encourage each person to be their very best self. Take a look at our Life Enrichment Programs for an introduction to the exciting life-affirming opportunities we offer.
With traditional health care models, care plans establish a patient’s identity in terms of their deficits and the assistance needed––defining care in terms of diagnosis or disease. Our Growth and Wellness Plans use well-being as our frame of reference, and each resident’s goals are tailored to their individual strengths, preferences, and growth opportunities. Our culture of caring partners with residents to deliver health outcomes beyond what you can read on a medical chart.
We advocate for a shift from institutional models of care to person-directed practices that adapt to individual needs. To foster the well-being of each of our residents, we take a holistic look at their unique strengths, goals, and opportunities, building an approach tailored to their needs.
Regent Court Programs
Encore Communities, including Regent Court, believe in the power of community and family connections, growth opportunities, cognitive exercise, and the healing power of multi-sensory stimulation. Our programs are designed with these goals in mind.
Best Friends Approach
What people experiencing memory loss need most of all is someone dedicated to helping them feel safe, secure, and valued—at all stages of the disease.
That is why Encore Communities has adopted the Best Friends™ approach and is earning the designation Best Friends™ Environment in all of our communities.
This person-centered care model is grounded in the understanding that relationships are supremely important in dementia care and should reflect the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, humor. The approach promotes the dignity and individual rights of people with memory loss through knowing the history and preferences of each person, communicating skillfully, and providing a supportive environment and meaningful engagement.
Music Makes Memories
We are thrilled with the positive results of our Music Makes Memories project. Our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory. Beloved music often calms chaotic brain activity and enables the listener to focus on the present moment and regain a connection to others. In our Music Makes Memory programming, we provide headphones and an MP3 player downloading playlists individualized for each person. Residents with anxiety and depression are less agitated and appear calmer, as the music transports them to a happier place in their minds. Watch the video below. Oliver Sacks, M.D., noted neurologist and best-selling author of Musicophilia, shares the story of Henry, a gentleman who had been in a long-term care center for years, and had virtually become non-verbal… until he became a participant in an iPod project. See the amazing outcomes! View Henry’s Reaction.
