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. 

What An Eye Opener – I Dare You!

Last month I had a son of a senior mom come in for a tour.  When he returned for a 2nd tour,  I told him how sorry I was that his mom’s health had turned so quickly.  He said, “I wouldn’t have known how much help she really needed if she hadn’t stayed with us for a week.  What an eye opener! ”   This happened to me too.  

I took mom on a road trip to see family…What an eye opener!  Do you know what else happened?  I had my head in the sand about mom’s age and health.  I kept her at 60 when she was actually 80.  Not on purpose, it’s just something that happens.  Fortunately she had a friend that helped wake me up. 

Some adult children of aging parents may be very in-tune with your mom and/or dad’s needs.  You might see:

  • the yard work is getting to be too much,
  • the one who is doing most of the care giving is getting tired, (loved one)
  • the mail is piling up,
  • cooking, gardening or socializing is less or
  • the bills haven’t been paid or have been double paid.  

But, for some of us, we need to be with them for a longer period of time to really GET IT. 

When I began looking for a nice place for mom to be, a safe, welcoming place inclusive of all levels of living, I was told that I was doing the right thing by looking now – BEFORE something happened.  You see, when something does happen to cause a more urgent need, your choices of a community and/or location go down, because they may be filled and have waiting lists. 

Have mom/dad come stay with you for a week, or you stay with them – start preparing!
