Our son was a resident at Regency Park in Hazlet for several years before his recent passing. We will always be grateful to the staff at Regency Park for being there for John. They were not just staff/residents, but truly became his friends and family
I was at the Regency Park in Hazlet and chose them after looking at Arnold Walter nursing home and a few other places. The care was first rate at the Regency. My Dr. at Regency was Dr. Saraswaat and he was extremely professional and had a great bedside manner. Staff was gracious and accommodating.
Regency Park is like a well run hotel - WITH REHAB.
I was at this facility for two weeks for the purpose of getting IV antibiotics & respiratory therapy after a very bad case of bacterial pneumonia. The nurses on 3 west were great. Angela, Dorothy and Karen - the night nurse, stand out for me. They were always available and nothing was ever a problem. Also, Nicole was really helpful. I also cannot say enough about Svetlana in physical therapy! She helped me with my diaphragm muscles to be able to breathe more freely and get to the core of my breathing/asthma issues. She is definitely in the right profession!
I would also like to give a huge thank you to Mary Beth, she was a tremendous help with communicating with our insurance company. She gave great advice and recognized that I needed breathing treatments. Her door was always open and she was easy to talk to. Great problem solver!
Esther was always the first smiling face that I saw in the morning - she was also very helpful.
Our Father was a patient at Regency and passed away this past April. Now that the dust has settled I wanted to post this online review to tell everyone what a wonderful place Regency is. It was a very difficult time and it was your their facility that made it bearable. When I say the facility I mean the people. The first day we got there dad was transferred from Jersey Shore by ambulette. I came from work and my sister followed the ambulette. I sat in the parking lot waiting and crying. Dee, from the kitchen came out, saw me and asked what was wrong. I just explained through the tears that dad was sick and I was so worried about putting him in a nursing facility. She promised me the whole staff was wonderful and I would not be disappointed. She gave me a big hug before she walked off and mentioned if I needed anything special from the kitchen to ask for her. I saw her many times over the weeks dad was there and she would smile and say, "was I right?" Was she ever! It's hard to describe my gratitude for the kindness of the staff. I must mention some names because it was only because of them I was able to get through the day at work knowing he was in good hands. I must acknowledge Doris, Elena, Melvin, Nelson, Jamie, Emma and two people whose names I've forgotten, one was the social worker and the other was the occupational therapist. Every one of them were kind, responsive, cheerful, patient and capable. If I had a concern, Doris addressed it....If I told Elena I thought dad was in pain, she was there within a minute or two....if he wanted juice, Nelson would bring 2.....and if dad wanted a shave Melvin would take care of it. Understand also that dad had a roommate who never had a visitor in all the time I was there. The staff was amazing with him too. It was comforting to know that people are kind and solicitous when no one is watching. The regency park staff is phenomenal and I don't know how my family would've managed without their support and compassion.
On behalf of the Dassinger/Cusick families we would like to thank you for taking such great care of our dad Martin Dassinger. Judah when we first approached you regarding admitting our dad into Regency you knew we were apprehensive. We were not sure if putting our dad in a nursing home was the right decision or not; after all who would take better care of our dad than us. Well you proved us wrong, within days of dad being admitted everyone on staff knew dad by name and would greet him with a smile. He was never alone. Dad was admitted at first to the 4th floor and all the staff there was amazing they were always smiling and patient with dad Emerson on the 4th floor was especially friendly to dad.
After some time dad continued to deteriorate and needed to be moved to the third floor where he was now confined to his wheel chair. While on the third floor dad became a little harder to handle and would get cranky, but dad was always treated with the same smiles and respect. I don't know the names of every one that helped take of dad but a few are Theresa, Debbie Donna, and Nelson. I am sorry for anyone whose name I missed but that doesn't mean we thank you any less. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for taking care of dad. Martin was a good man, a loving and devoted husband and father. He would work 6 days a week when we were little so mom could stay at home with us. He was coach of little league baseball for our brothers team, and a veteran of the Korean conflict.
We had heard horror stories from friends about other nursing homes. Sending dad to Regency was definitely the best decision we could have made. It was like living at a fancy hotel complete with entertainment weekly. I have witnessed first hand some of the special events that went on at Regency like the picnics which I was always invited to partake in, the outside entertainers who were brought in to sing to the residents, the on site barber. For every thing you all did for dad we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, God bless you all
My Dad, was admitted to Regency Nursing Center this past August as a full time resident. At first he was apprehensive about this huge transition in his life. But after a short period of time, as h got to know the staff and the residents, he became at ease with his new environment and saw that this was the place he wanted to live.
Whenever I ask my Dad if he is happy here, he quickly says yes. I cannot ask for a better place for him to be, than at Regency Park. Their inclusion of family members at all occasions is deeply appreciated and makes us feel welcome whenever we visit.
All the employees are wonderful and we commend them all for their caring, patience and understanding.
Regency has met our expectations far and beyond the stigma usually associated with nursing homes.
We are happy and grateful (and we now sleep at night again, knowing my Dad is in good hands).
