Description of Tennyson Assisted Living
Tennyson Assisted Living is the ideal retirement community - located blocks from Warner Park (home of the Madison Mallards) and around the corner from Northside Town Center, which offers restaurants, banking, shopping, beauty/barber shop and day spa. The community is complete with walks, outdoor patios, and gardening opportunities. Tennyson Assisted Living offers a peaceful setting located in a warm and friendly neighborhood.
Tennyson Assisted Living is a state registered Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) and state licensed Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) offering assisted living services. The community provides both one and two-bedroom spacious apartments with full kitchens, personal bathrooms with walk-in showers and cozy studio apartments with personal full bath and walk-in showers. Apartments are bright and airy with lovely views. Common areas include large dining & social room for meals, parties and entertainment, a bistro hosting weekly Happy Hour, beauty/barber salon, library with gorgeous fireplace, private dining room for intimate family gatherings, gardens, patios, walkways and lovely lawns and landscaping. Three delicious, gourmet meals are prepared daily and snacks and beverages are available at all times.
Tennyson Assisted Living’s professional staff includes an on-site executive director, a full-time Resident Care Coordinator and on-call Registered Nurse, housekeepers, maintenance staff, life enrichment coordinator, chef, dietary aides, bus driver and trained caregivers available 24-hours per day to assist residents with personal needs such as medication administration and monitoring, bathing, dressing, ambulation and assistance with other activities of daily living.
Tennyson Assisted Living maintains an active social calendar offering opportunities such as games, cards, crafts, educational discussions and classes, baking club, outings, entertainment and spiritual enrichment. The community will soon have a comfortable bus with wheelchair lift, available Monday through Friday, to provide transportation to and from medical appointments (within a 20-mile radius), shopping, banking and social outings.
Residents of Tennyson Assisted Living live in apartments with private baths, are served three home-cooked meals daily, enjoy the convenience of housekeeping and linen service, and participate in daily social and recreational activities while receiving assistance with personal care and medications.
Both ambulatory and non-ambulatory residents are welcome. Professional staff are on duty around the clock, and a registered nurse (RN) is on call 24/7. Safety and security are further enhanced by an Emergency Call System (ECS) in each apartment that allows residents to press a button and summon a staff member. Residents suffering from any form of dementia do not receive an ECS button but do enjoy scheduled visits from our staff....some each hour, others more frequently.
We do not believe in a regimented, one-size-fits-all approach. Uniquely, Tennyson Assisted Living offers personalized care that is solely based on individual needs. Residents and their families discretely choose the level of care that meets their unique situations.
