Asbury Place operates two Methodist retirement communities in Maryville and Kingsport that have been serving the residents of Knoxville since 1956. These locations currently provide care and support for more than 600 local senior citizens and focus on the physical, mental and emotional well being of each individual resident. Seniors with limited resources may be able to pay for care at these communities through the Asbury Circle of Care financial aid program.
The Asbury Methodist campuses at Maryville and Kingsport both offer a variety of living options for active, independent seniors, including apartments, townhomes, cottages and villas. Seniors can cook and clean for themselves, or enjoy on-site restaurant-style dining and professional housekeeping services. Community residents are also able to enjoy picturesque walking trails and luxurious amenities such as a spa and fitness center.
Assisted living apartments allow seniors to receive full-time care while maintaining their independence. Asbury Maryville and the Kingsport Steadman Hill Campus offer private assisted living accommodations that are designed with comfort in mind, including amenities such as cable television, 24/7 security and an emergency response system. Depending on the health needs of the patient, assisted living staff are able to help out with daily living activities and accommodate special dietary requirements.
The Village Court at Asbury Kingsport and The Village at Maryville focus on meeting the needs of memory impaired individuals, including Alzheimer’s survivors and other dementia patients. Treatment focuses on communication and behavioral management skills to improve the quality of life for memory impaired seniors.
Asbury Place Kingsport and Maryville both operate a Transitional Unit for Rehabilitation and Nursing, where a team of specialists help patients to recover from health conditions through physical and occupational therapy. This transitional care is temporary, lasting just weeks to months, and ensures that seniors recover smoothly under the full-time supervision of a skilled nursing staff before returning home.
In addition to transitional care, Asbury campuses also offer licensed, long-term nursing care for patients with complex health needs. Trained staff are on-hand at all hours of the day to monitor patients, administering individualized treatment plans to ensure that senior residents are kept safe, happy, and comfortable.
Asbury at Home is an in-home care program that provides assistance to seniors who live alone or with their families. Home health workers are able to help out elderly patients and their caretakers with household chores, errands, and even pet care. Seniors with limited mobility can also get help with activities such as bathing, grooming and dressing. Perhaps most importantly, care workers provide daily social interaction and companionship for isolated individuals.
Local Methodist churches also offer services that allow seniors to get out and socialize. The Concord United Methodist Church Primetimers program is geared towards getting church members over the age of 55 involved and engaged within their community. Seniors can enjoy weekly classes, monthly get-togethers and regularly scheduled outings.
