The most recent addition to the Regency family, Regency Heritage is centrally located in Somerset, New Jersey, on the beautiful 59-acre Oscar and Ella Wilf Campus for Senior Living. Regency Heritage is committed to bringing advanced levels of skilled nursing care, rehabilitation and quality of life to all those we serve, in an environment that embraces Jewish values and traditions.
A recent multi-million dollar renovation project has transformed Regency Heritage into one of the area’s most elegant and luxurious senior residences. A generous 265-bed capacity addresses both the community’s long- and short-term care needs. Spacious, elegantly appointed rooms, cheery public areas and gracious dining facilities help create an atmosphere of comfort, companionship and community.
Long-term residents benefit from the highest quality, round-the-clock nursing care as well as comprehensive clinical support and personal care services. They also enjoy sumptuous dining, with Glatt kosher menu choices prepared under the supervision of a certified nutritionist. There is also a robust program of recreational and social activities designed to complement a wide range of lifestyles, interests and preferences.
For patients and residents in need of rehabilitation and specialized services, our award-winning Regency Rehab ™ staff utilizes the latest therapies and treatment modalities. Together with our dedicated, state-of-the-art equipped facilities, they work to ensure optimum recovery and the return to the highest degree of independence and quality of life possible.
Regency Heritage is convenient to major highways and easily accessible by both private and public transportation. Five of New Jersey’s finest hospitals are also located right in our area: St. Peter’s Medical Center, Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Center, Princeton Medical Center, Somerset Medical Center and JFK Hospital.
We are also extremely excited to introduce our new cutting edge technology in Healthcare which we will be rolling out in July 2016 at all Regency Nursing and Post-Acute Rehabilitation Centers!
Allow us to introduce MD Live Care! They are a physician based group that provide telemedicine during evening hours, weekends and holidays. They utilize cutting edge video communication technology and digital diagnostic equipment(s) which allows their physicians to interact, evaluate, diagnose and triage our patients at their bedside without leaving the facility.
They are a group of board certified physicians with 10+ years of experience in both hospital and Sub-Acute/Post-Acute care settings and are highly qualified to treat medically complex patients. MD Live Care's main goal is to help Regency Nursing and Post-Acute Rehabilitation Centers by treating our medically ill patients at their bedside. They will provide additional support and guidance to nurses as they care for our patients. They will work hand in hand with our primary care physicians and communicate with our patients and their family members to provide updates and follow-ups regarding care provided.
As an additional courtesy for our residents to enhance the quality of care, Regency will incur all service charges from MD Live Care, as they will not bill our patient's insurance. This initiative is yet another illustration of Regency's commitment to pushing the envelope in Healthcare technologies and advancements and to spare no expense in caring for our residents.
