At Danberry at Inverness, we want you to start enjoying your new lifestyle right away, and that means helping make your move smoother than you ever thought possible. It starts with a complimentary home visit by Move-In Coordinator Chandy Bishop. During this visit, you can point out which furniture you wish to bring to your new residence so that Chandy can take measurements. She then will discuss with you the best placement of furnishings in your new residence, both to maximize space and to carry over the warm feelings of home.

Chandy will also call the moving company of your choice and coordinate the details when they arrive with your precious belongings. She also can handle moving details such as transferring your phone number and change of address for your mail. Our goal is to make the entire moving process a positive experience—we are here to help every step of the way.

To set up a home visit or just ask a question, please call Chandy at 205-443-9532 or email her at chandy@danberryatinverness.com. You can be confident you’ve made the right choice in Danberry at Inverness—we are here for you!

Customized activities are designed to promote physical and emotional well-being, prolong daily functioning, and maintain a sense of purpose and satisfaction. These may include gardening, cooking, movies and reminiscing, as well as arts-oriented activities such as singing, listening to music, and working with rhythm. Memory boxes and scrapbooks are used as well. The goal is always, whenever possible, to incorporate aspects of each individual’s life story.
