    Country Place Senior Living to Open New Assisted Living Residences in Hamilton and Winfield

    Looking to fulfill a growing need for specialized senior care in rural areas, Country Place Senior Living is building two new assisted living residences in Alabama, one in Hamilton (690 National Avenue) and one in Winfield (480 Tahoe Road). Seniors in the area in need of assistive services are eagerly anticipating their completion and have started making plans for the transition to the residences.

    “When I began my search for an assisted living community, I was looking for three things: my own private room, a residence with freedoms that would allow me to maintain my dignity, and 24/7 staff available to assist me as needed,” said Ann Mordici, a soon-to-be resident and member of the Country Place Senior Living Founders Club. “Upon discovering Country Place Senior Living, and looking into their other residences that are currently open in Alabama, I came to the conclusion that I had found the right place.”

    Mordici has lived in Hamilton since she was three years old, and she wanted to continue living near the friends she had developed close relationships with over the years. She is eager for the completion of Country Place Senior Living of Hamilton, and is planning on inviting her local friends to the new residence for a tour and lunch once it opens. She thinks they will be impressed by the home cooked meals.

    “I am delighted that Country Place Senior Living recognizes the importance of providing senior care in small towns where specialized care is most certainly needed,” said Mordici. “After suffering a recent injury, I need rehabilitation therapy and help doing various tasks. It will bring me peace of mind to know that I can get quality care right in my own home. I’m tickled at the idea of living in a residence with other people my age. I think it will be similar to living in the college dorm that I enjoyed when I attended Auburn University. The size of the residence will make it easier to meet people too.”

    Mordici is fond of Hamilton because the community is close-knit and peaceful. She likes to spend her days relaxing and enjoying the tranquility of life in the country. She thinks the courtyards at Country Place Senior Living of Hamilton will provide a serene place to relax and admire with company.

    “The staff is easy to connect with, and they have been so helpful,” said Moridici. “They have addressed all my questions and concerns along the way. Making this transition is a new experience for me, and I am excited. I plan on participating in group activities, games, crafts and outings. These activities will be helpful to get better acquainted with my neighbors and stay active. The city of Hamilton is also revitalizing the downtown by adding trees and revamping the buildings. It is a great time to be here.”

    The senior residence will feature 24 suites, where seniors can be independent, form strong relationships with fellow residents and receive care from supportive and highly trained staff members. In addition to providing care to seniors, the residence’s staff members plan to be a resource for families who live in the surrounding area.

    “Our staff is experienced in helping seniors and their families make the transition to an assisted living residence,” said Erica Adams, administrator of Country Place Senior Living of Hamilton. “We are available to answer questions, and we look forward to providing quality care.”

    By joining the Country Place Senior Living founders club, members will enjoy special privileges like priority selection of residential suites, VIP invitation to all community activities, complimentary monthly luncheons, free Seniorcise Classes, and a free move-in coordinator services.
