“This building is just beautiful and I am so happy with my apartment and how well the building is kept up! The staff here are so friendly and helpful and I have made some wonderful friendships. We have wonderful outings and the DARTS bus is great! My personal favorite though, is the Café with the bottomless cup of coffee! How can you go wrong?”
- Alice Jones, resident
"The best part is that the staff is so outstanding. The food and service are excellent. This is truly family-orientated. It's almost as though I am on a vacation with really no concerns. Thank you Regent for being here for me."
- Dawn Davidson, resident
