MOULTRIE, Ga. (May 26, 2015) – Legacy Village at Park Regency of Moultrie is thrilled to announce its state certification as a licensed Assisted Living Facility, which permits an expanded offering of medical assistance at the 51-bed assisted living facility in Moultrie, Ga.

In order to attain this top-level licensing designation, Legacy Village at Park Regency underwent an extremely arduous and extensive licensing process. New standards created by the State of Georgia in 2011 allow for a more advanced level of care as a licensed Assisted Living Facility, where certified medication aides can administer medication and assist with self-preservation, or a person’s ability to move to safety in the event of an emergency.

This designation was issued by the Georgia Department of Community Health, Healthcare Facility Regulation Division, on March 13, 2015. Previously, Legacy Village at Park Regency was designated a Licensed Personal Care Home.

“As a licensed assisted living facility, Legacy Village at Park Regency can offer a more affordable alternative to skilled nursing, but with a much broader range of medical assistance than is available at a typical Personal Care Home,” said Jennifer McLendon,Legacy Village at Park Regency’s executive director.

“By addressing this need in senior services, Legacy Village aims to provide a better balance between freedom of living and attentive care. Our licensed nursing staff can provide 24-hour medication assistance, check insulin levels for diabetics, assist residents who have lost mobility, and perform a number of other medical services. This translates to greater peace of mind for seniors who suffer from chronic or serious illnesses,” McLendon said.

“We’re proud to be one of the few facilities with this new license and designation in south Georgia that offers this specialized level of care to seniors of ‘America’s Greatest Generation’,” said Bryan Cook, senior vice president of Legacy Senior Services, the parent company for Legacy Village of Park Regency.

“Our new state certification opens the door for more Colquitt County seniors to gracefully ‘age in place,’ that is, remain longer in a home-like setting within the community they have come to love, even as their medical needs may increase over time,” said Cook.
