Just a short drive from downtown Nashville, Natchez Trace is a breath of fresh Tennessee air. With high ceilings, chandeliers, and warm, honeyed lighting, visitors know from the moment they walk into our country lodge that we’re anything but your typical, senior living arrangement. Providing experienced around-the-clock care and respectful assistance throughout daily activities, every resident in our small, intimate community is guaranteed our most thoughtful and undivided attention.
We like to ask those who say they’re just not quite ready for assisted living, what does ready look like? Actively participating in the newest chapters of one’s own life comes with a boost of confidence and invaluable peace. Whether it means selling your house or condo, coordinating arrangements with family, or decorating your new space, we’re here for you to simplify the process.
The Lodge community provides varying degrees of minimal assistance for seniors throughout their everyday activities. From standby to hands-on support for showers and dressing, nightly checks, and on-call transfer help, our Custom Resident Service Plans are designed to provide care according to each individual’s preferences and concerns. Other services may include support with eating, continence management, medication reminders and supervision, and encouraging socialization.
At Natchez Trace, the Lodge Country House is a unique and secure neighborhood designed just for patients with memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. We keep a small, tightly-knit team of memory care staff and nurses to ensure residents receive care from familiar and friendly faces each and every day.
In order to thrive and live their best lives, individuals with memory loss require a level of stability that only a dependable and unwavering schedule can offer. From Monday through Sunday/seven days a week, our committed staff follows a specialized consistency program exactly as it was developed by the memory care experts. Country House residents also enjoy weekly music therapy, a time where they are able to connect with themselves and their peers through instrument play, therapeutic singing, improvised songwriting, guided movement to music, and much more.
Every Country House resident begins his or her unique journey with family at their side. Our knowledgeable and delightful Marketing Director, Kelly Porter, gets to know the needs of future residents and provides families with valuable information and resources as they decide if The Lodge is where they would like to be.
Once a decision is made, our Director of Nursing performs an assessment to determine each new patient’s care plan and the level of support it includes. A follow-up is conducted 30 days after move in—and unless a change in health calls for care adjustments sooner, regular assessments are continually conducted every 3 months after that.
