When Greenville resident Olide Bucci was considering moving into an assisted living facility, she had more concerns and anxieties than she would ever tell anyone – the greatest of which was simply giving up her home with all of its memories.
She chose Kempton of Greenville because it was local and close to everything familiar. Within a week or so of moving in, Bucci not only felt at home, she knew she didn’t want to be anywhere else.
“Relocation like this always has concerns, especially for seniors, because all of us have different wants and needs,” Bucci said. “But here, I was able to relax in ways I hadn’t expected, and the residents and staff at Kempton were always here to help with the transition.”
Designed specifically for senior adults needing assisted living, memory care and respite services, Kempton of Greenville has striven for 24 years to give residents the best lives possible by focusing not only on the quality of its services but on the people needing them.
“We have some new faces and some who have been with our community for years,” said Casey Adkins, director of sales and marketing. “But any time residents and family members come in, we want them to feel like they are at home.”
Part of this atmosphere includes what is known as engaged living, which means residents are encouraged to maintain an active lifestyle with assistance only as needed. To this end, weekly and daily activities include live music, card games, arts and crafts classes, outings to favorite places, exercise groups and restaurant-style dining, all of which allows residents to continue enjoying the life to which they were accustomed, with the individual support they need to thrive.
“We have something here for everyone,” Adkins said. “Our exclusive INSPIRE program focuses on whole-person wellness and is designed to incorporate activities and events that enhance the social, spiritual, intellectual and physical well-being of each resident we serve.”
Of course, if you need assistance with any kind of daily living activities, the Kempton staff is always on hand. All staff members are employed directly by Kempton – no agencies or auxiliary help is used.
“Our special team is 100% resident focused,” Adkins said.
This is one reason why longtime residents Gary and Donna Cain have stayed at Kempton.
“We’re all family here,” Gary Cain said. “We have activities that help us with our motor skills and someone to help us in other ways when we need it. We feel blessed to call Kempton home.”
Under the umbrella of Liberty Senior Living of Wilmington, North Carolina, Kempton is one of 18 senior communities in five Southern states.
If you are experiencing fear or anxiety about leaving your home for a new community, you can attain peace of mind and keep the feeling of home by choosing Kempton of Greenville.
“We pride ourselves on providing seniors with a happier and healthier lifestyle,” Adkins said. “Our goal is to make our Kempton residents feel right at home.”
