Testimonials

This is the place to be!   We have everything!  The BEST location for shopping, groceries and medical needs.  We have the BEST location, the BEST Staff,(they are so outstanding), the BEST design, the BEST food and the service is excellent!  I love the activities because there is such a variety.  I have missed my friends, but have made many new friends here.  Whatever you want, it’s here.  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 – 10 year resident

I love it here.  I feel secure, I don’t have to cut grass or shovel and if a light goes out, someone helps me. If I have a plumbing problem all I do is call reception and they let the maintenance department know.  I remember being stuck in my home.  I had two days to get the snow shoveled or I was fined.  Getting someone to help was so difficult.  They’ve made my life so easy and enjoyable.  With the residents and employees here, it’s like living in a wonderful neighborhood.

I like the activities they provide and we have close access to grocery stores and shopping; whatever I need.
- Marilyn – 1.5 year resident

Give yourself some time to adjust and soon, you’ll find yourself feeling a part of this larger family with many nice people.  Just remember, to have a friend, you must be a friend.

How Are You Doing In This Emotional Time?

When families come to see us at the Regent, they are looking for a safe and social community for themselves or their loved ones.  They are in the place of:

  • preparing for the distant future;
  • preparing for the near future;
  • a quick and dramatic life change or;
  • in a panic not knowing where to turn.

No matter where they are, there are a lot of emotions.  This past weekend I had a good cry over the loss of my mother four years ago. We all understand and acknowledge the emotions around losing someone, but what about the feelings of moving from your home and seeing your health and safety decline?  There are many losses in this part of life. 

Whenever I am sitting with a family and they are telling me why they have come to tour the Regent, I always stop and ask, “How are you doing?”  EVERYONE is affected emotionally from a son/daughter seeing their parents changing or a mom/dad who has lived in their home for
20 – 50 years.  No matter what it is, there are always a lot of feelings involved.

Last week a mom came in with her son.  As they were leaving I looked at the mom and acknowledged how difficult it was to be approaching this big change and leaving her home.  There was a look of gratitude and relief on her face that her emotions were understood.   

This is a very difficult time for all sons, daughters, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and friends.  Know that here at the Regent, we understand and know that you’re not alone.
