The Madison Village celebrates its 25th anniversary

MADISON – The atmosphere was one of celebration. Smiles, handshakes and hugs were frequent during the 25th anniversary party for The Madison Village, 6016 Wall Triana.

“We have grown from just the one building to now six. We have 90 apartments total, and we have a longstanding relationship in the community,” Kristy Bryant, Executive Director of The Madison Village, said.

Individuals in the main building (or residents) have assisted-living support, which includes three meals each day. “We check in on them at minimum every two hours. We help with any daily living needs,” Bryant said.

The Madison Village also has standalone apartments for people who are suited for independent living. “We have five buildings for independent living, with 12 units in each complex,” Bryant said. “All (of these units are) located on one level. We have one- and two-bedroom units.”

When the community was first opened, “we started with the assisted-living (option), and, a few years later, we added our first cottage with 12 apartments. Then, over time we have added the other buildings. The last building opened about 19 months ago in independent living,” Bryant said.

In addition to Bryant as Executive Director, The Madison Village’s staff includes Andrea Rogers as Activities Director; Mary Beth Watson, Community Development Director; and Tori Harbison, Health and Wellness Director.

The Madison Village is licensed through the State of Alabama.

The anniversary party on April 16 attracted more than 300 people. Staff members from Madison Chamber of Commerce and City of Madison Mayor’s Office attended the event. “We had charcutier boards, live entertainment, along with awards for employees and residents,” Bryant said.

Michelle Eppling, Executive Director of Madison Chamber of Commerce, gave opening comments.

Several individuals with Community Health Systems Inc. spoke: Doug Warren, President and CEO; Chip Globetti, Vice President, Northern Division; and Dr. Dan Scarbrough, Founder, Chairman of the Board; and Bryant.

Deserving employees and residents received awards. Lucy Turner, who serves as ‘Mayor,’ was recognized as “Longest Resident” with 14 years of residency. In the employee service awards, Andrea Rogers has worked at The Madison Village for 21 years; Alison McIlnay, 24 years; and recent retiree Rhonda Tucker, 25 years.

“Everyone had a wonderful time,” Andrea Rogers said. Rogers was happy with the turnout and the upbeat spirit of people who attended. Bryant said that the ‘villagers’ have been very excited in anticipation of the party.

Helping with the festivities were Pop-Up Parties by Jessica, ballon displays; Publix, cake; Nick Fox, music; Emily Anderson, photography; and The Madison Village Assisted Living crew, catering.

“I have been here for five years and served in a couple of different roles. I’m excited to see where we grow from here,” Bryant said.
