Somerby At St Vincents
Somerby has been a blessing to our family! My mother had lived with us for years and her needs were changing. She wanted to have an independent living environment yet feel there were people close to look out for her. Somerby was recommended to us by our family who lives in Greystone. We felt strongly that we should explore the option. Upon driving on campus we observed a wonderful outward environment! I met with the individual in charge of sharing the information and exploring the opportunities at Somerby . After spending time visiting and exploring the home I realized this was exactly what she needed at this stage of her life.! We found just the right room that would appeal to her. She appreciated the support of medical emergency services and interaction with friends her age. Somerby met these desires for that support. I loved the emphasis on a wellness environment. I knew this would inspire mother to participate at the level she could. Mother has always been a great cook and I saw the importance of the chef in the 5 star dining room which I knew that would appeal to her. Church membership has been important to her all of her life. She has enjoyed being a part of the Somerby church family and getting to know the pastor and his wife. The exercise provisions have met her physical needs when she was physically able to participate. The beauty shop has been an important weekly event for her for many years. This fit right into her needs at this stage. Since mother has been a resident at Somerby we have found the staff to be an important part of the family. Beginning with the administrator, director of activities and other important personalities such as the front desk personnel, maintenance and housekeeping we found a family of those who serve to make a successful environment! We appreciate the love, care and concern that is shown for each resident and their needs. This encouragement carries over to others who live there to befriend other residents. They look out for each other and seek to meet the needs when they can. Somerby has been and still is a blessing to my mother and I am grateful!

Paoletti Donald A MD
My son has been under the care of Dr. Don Paoletti for seven years now. He has absolutely been a God-send...an answer to prayer. He has seen us through the highs and the lows. I have my own issues and have been under the care of many psychiatrists in various settings and Dr. Paolettti is by far the BEST! He is incredibly caring and attentive to both the patient and parent. I knew my son was in good hands at our first visit when Dr. Paoletti addressed my son and talked to him before he acknowledged me. He does this at EVERY visit! This helped my son, who doesn't trust easily, to trust him almost immediately. He truly listens to what we have to say and I never get the feeling that he's checking out mentally or that he's ready to get rid of us. When it comes to course of treatment, including medications, he takes the patient and parent's feelings into consideration when making his decisions, making it feel like it is a collaborative effort. Making appointments is easy, and we never have to wait more than a few minutes when we arrive. He is wonderful about returning important phone calls between visits when necessary. There are not enough words to express the gratitude I have that God sent us to Dr. Paoletti!

The Abbey's at Lakesore
I moved into the Abbey at Lakeshore in January 2013 It is a pleasure living here. It is quiet, people are friendly, the Office and Maintenance Staff is very helpful. Amber the Office Manager is not only professional but such a pleasure to deal with. The Maintenance Staff, friendly, honest and when there is a problem they try their best to fix it asap.It is a nice place to live but it would be a better place if they could update the kitchen cupboards and appliances. It is a bit outdated and old.However, with the Manager Amber and her Maintenance Team they realy do try their best to do their best.

Somerby at St Vincent's 119 is an amazing community. My grandmother lives there and she has blossomed since moving to the retirement community. Before, she lived at home alone and wasnt able to get out much. Now we can hardly ever get her on the phone! She loves the food and her Somerby friends. Most of all she loves the activities. She does everything from tai chi, learning to paint, and dancing. My family is so grateful for the wonderful team at Somerby. They give us comfort in knowing that our family member is well taken care of.

“The community was so warm and friendly. There were certain amenities that fit our needs very well. On the fun side of things, they had everything from a pool table to a movie theater to a workout facility. With all the activities, I do not see how anyone can get bored at this facility! Since my father is an avid fisherman, the stocked pond is a definite plus. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the food was delicious. In all, I would recommend this community to anyone who is looking for a home -- not just a place to live.

•I work with Seniors all over the Alabama area and have the opportunity to visit many senior communities. I am Most impressed with Somerby One Nineteen. The community is not just beautiful, but offers top quality care and activities that would keep anyone entertained. The overall aspect of Somerby is an A+. My experience of twenty five years working with seniors would put this community at the very top of the list and highly recommended for family members.

I was a visitor to this community with a friend who's mother lives there. It was nothing that I expected, and everything I didn't. The building and grounds were beautiful -- I thought I was in a hotel! We had lunch with her mom that was delicious, were greeted by every employee that we came across, and were impressed with how active everyone seemed. I'll be suggesting Somerby to my Mom and Dad when they are ready to retire!

I had lunch with one of my mother's friends at Somerby. The food is fabulous! While leaving the Chateau Dining Room i was greeted by several of the friendly staff members. We stopped by the Football Kickoff party and everyone was having such a good time. I was very impressed with the experience I had in just one afternoon, I can't imagine how much fun it would to live there!

This is the most impressive retirement community I have ever been to. They have everything that my dad needs and wants. The most impressive aspect of Somerby by far is the staff and residents. They are friendly, welcoming and caring. I know he's in good hands.

We've lived here a few months now. We love how close it is to everything e.g. Summit, restaurants, etc. and the complex is beautiful and well kept. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an upscale gated community.
Tips & Advices
A child psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in issues that affect the mental and emotional health of children and teens. Child psychiatrists can provide treatment for children and teenagers who suffer from depression, autism, anxiety disorders, attention disorders, drug addictions, eating disorders, mood disorders, and a wide range of behavioral problems.
Psychiatrists typically ask questions that focus  on the issues that are having a negative effect on your life. In an initial visit with a psychiatrist, you may be asked about symptoms you've experienced, and ways in which you've tried to deal with them. You might be asked about current and past medical conditions, as well asa family health history.
A referral is an authorization from your doctor saying that a certain type of treatment is medically necessary, and it's usually required if you want your insurance company to cover the costs associated with a visit to a psychiatrist. If you don't have insurance, a referral is not required to schedule a psychiatrist visit.
Psychiatrists and psychologists sometimes collaborate, and this typically takes place when working with patients who have serious mental health problems. In cases like this, a psychologist will treat the patient from a behavioral perspective. A psychiatrist will complement this treatment with care that handles issues concerning biology, neurology, and the prescription of drugs.
Many psychiatrists specialize in treating certain conditions. Some psychiatrists focus on substance abuse therapy, and this is the treatment of addiction to substances like alcohol, narcotics, and tobacco. Others specialize in biological psychiatry, which is the treatment of brain chemistry disorders like depression and schizophrenia. Psychiatrists might also specialize in treating elderly patients or children and adolescents.
