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.

Our daughter who lives on the other side of the lake is the reason we came from Nebraska. We decided it was time to retire in an organized way in a community with healthcare’s. All levels of care. From our first visit we were very impressed with the people we met, the area itself, everyone was friendly and accepting. I was immediately impressed with the layout – it’s a beautiful setting. You can be as private or sociable as you want. The activities that are planned are high caliber; well planned and suited to the clientele….clientele oriented or friendly.

Some activities appeal to us and another didn’t but that was 1 out of all in the last year.

Food service flexibility, we don’t have to sign up for any specific meal or hours, there are a lot of choices. We prefer the noon meal. We don’t really have to leave the community for anything with all the services provided, transportation when we don’t drive, we can get to Dr.’s appts. The setting is near all of the shopping right off of Cty Rd 42. Religious services accommodate many denominations. The physical grounds are very beautiful and we like to explore around the lake. Our daughter walks there frequently. 

I’ll Move When I Sell My House

In about 40% of my tours I hear, “”I’ll move when I sell my house”” or “”I have 50 years of stuff to go through before I can move.””  For most of us, leaving our house will never happen until something happens to either of our loved ones.

So many times I’ve heard:

  • Dad had a heart attack and can no longer live by himself; we didn’t know there were waiting lists. 
  • Mom is getting so depressed living alone; I wish she would go to a nice community and make some friends.
  • Dad said he would move to a safe place. That was 2 years ago, he lives alone and his health has really gone down.
  • I can’t take care of my wife anymore, my health has gotten worse but she won’t move.  Who will take care of her when I’m gone?

The house becomes the excuse because it means so much to us.  It’s a big part of our life and moving to a new place is uncomfortable and just plain scary.  I cannot take those feelings away, nor would I try, but I can suggest things to keep in YOUR control!

- Moving in a crisis situation lessens your choices because of waiting lists.   

- Make the decision before an incident makes it for you. 

- Moving when you feel better allows for a much easier transition.

- If you can afford it, moving to a senior community before you sell the house eliminates tremendous STRESS, keeping you healthier and stronger!  

Still not sure?  You are welcome to try us out.  It’s a 30-day notice with no long lease.  Stay with us for a month or for the winter and give yourself time to see how you like it.  Take the worry away from your loved ones if only for a short time.
