Testimonials

I feel safe, I feel free of responsibility, I am relieved of a lot of worries and the staff are all warm and caring people.  There are so many opportunities to engage socially as much as I want to.  If I were still living in my home I would be cooped up.  I made my own choice to move here and my sister is with me.  I’ve made friends and you provide a large range of spiritual, wellness and social activities.  I feel REVITALIZED, have nutritional balanced meals and it’s a happy place to be.  It was a good move.
- Geraldine – 4 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

Transportation Information

The Regent offers a variety of outings during the week for the residents.  A typical weekly schedule is as follows (Please note there may be some changes to this schedule due to special events, holidays, etc):

Mondays: Grocery Shopping

Tuesday/Wednesdays: Convenience Store – Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, etc.

Thursdays: Van About Town Day – You decide within a 20 mile round trip

In addition, during the month additional special outings are scheduled, including plays, sporting events, special dining, church services, etc.  Please watch your activities calendar for these events and sign up quickly, since they do have a tendency to fill up.  We ask that you sign up for weekly and special outings in the activity sign up book located in the Mezzanine on second floor.  Availability for outings is limited. Sign up is on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

Typical weekly scheduled events will occur even if only one resident is signed up for the outing.  All special outings will require a minimum number of residents to sign up for that event to take place.  Because the transportation expense and outing costs will vary per event, please see the sign-up sheet in the Mezzanine for the minimum number of attendees required.  Also, please note that for the safety of the residents, if the temperature or wind chill drops below 0 degrees or the temperature or heat index is over 100 degrees, the outings planned for that day will be cancelled.   

In addition, you can arrange for your own transportation by calling any of the transportation companies listed on the Transportation Resources page by clicking here or by contacting our Social Worker to discuss transportation options.
