Thank You Regency Jewish Heritage

There are so many people I'd like to thank for my getting healthier and stronger after having bilateral knee replacement. I admit I was nervous going anywhere after leaving the hospital and going to place for rehabilitation. Regency Jewish Heritage gave me the personal touch I needed, while giving me my own room to relax. I was welcomed by EVERYONE in Administration, physical therapy, nurses, assistants, housekeepers, social workers, etc. Everyone made it a priority to listen to my needs while getting stronger.

Would Have Been My First Choice

I loved this community it would have been the perfect fit for my sister. The staff was very nice and friendly. As soon as I walked in I got a much homier feel than others that I had been too. The community had decided my sister would not be a good fit for the community. I don't think they gave my sister a fair chance and they made their decision based on past medical history which doesn't represent her at the current time.

Judah Gutwein

Local Representative

Thanks so much for your candid and valuable feedback and we deeply apologize that it seems we were unable to accommodate your Sister on this occasion. God bless you both.

Old World Values and Compassion at Regency Jewish Heritage

The care that my Mother received at Regency Heritage during her relatively short stay will always be remembered. From the Administrator, all the way to the kitchen personnel, everyone seemed to be there at the right time to lend a helping hand when needed.

We were overwhelmed by their kindness and we commend Regency Jewish Heritage for offering old world values and traditions steeped in true empathy and compassion.

Review of Regency Heritage Nursing And Post Acute Rehabilitation Center Franklin-Township, NJ

My dad was here and we were satisfied with therapy and some of the aides. A few would have had better bedside manner, but by and large, most were excellent. The main thing is, they got me strong, healthy, and back home in time for my granddaughters baby shower!

Naomi Landsberg

Local Representative

Thank you for your review. Nothing makes us happier then assisting a patient of ours in their recovery. Wishing you happiness and health and congratulations on your granddaughter!

Thank You Juda and Regency Heritage Postacute Care Center!

With our elderly loved one who has been in and out of rehab centers over the last 4 years, our experience has been somewhat of a mixed bag, until we found Juda [removed] and the staff at the regency post acute care center in somerset.

We were originally introduced to regency park care center in hazlet, because our loved one was at Bayshore community hospital in holmdel, which is only minutes away from the regency park location.

There we were introduced to Juda who took over and calmed our fears and even helped us with referring us to medicaid consultants. His demeanor and professionalism were unerrring .

We wound up working with Juda on an admission to this sister facility in somerset and also on a medicaid application with application pros in Jackson nj.

Juda and the regency exceeded all of our expectations in terms of quality care and a beautiful location to help us sleep better at night.

No place is a substitute for home, or homecooking, but regency comes closest.

Judah Gutwein

My mother is a resident at this facility. There is one nurse, Kate, who has been taking care of my mom for the last 10 years. This goes to show you that there is virtually no attrition rate at Regency and the caregivers have typically been there for a long time. This is a source of reassurance and comfort to my family, knowing she is in good hands.

Regency Heritage Creates Miracles!

It is probably rare that a business receives compliments instead of complaints. But I feel compelled to comments regarding the excellent care provided to my Sister Phoebe, during her 12 week stay at Regency Heritage in Somerset, for rehabilitation.

My Sister suffered a stroke and was discharged from JFK Rehabilitation Center to Regency.

Prior to her care at Regency, we were concerned about her recovery prospects as a result of her high acuity (she was entirely paralyzed on her left side). We visited 9 local rehab facilities before choosing Regency Heritage in Somerset, mainly because of what appeared to be an excellent program and staff providing physical therapy. In addition, the place just felt right compared to the others.

When she was admitted, we were concerned she would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.

However, Regency's physical therapist, Wayne Johnson, never gave up hope on her and worked day after day to help her and motivate her in her recovery.

My sister can be very stubborn and wasn't the easiest patient and was somewhat resistant in the beginning to participate in her therapy.

But Wayne turned her into a believer with his endless patience and dedication.

In the end, my sister was able to walk out of Regency (without a walker)!!

We are forever grateful to Regency Heritage and their staff for their miracle!!

Judah Gutwein

with all our heart we thank you!!!!

Regency Jewish Heritage

As a retired social worker I can attest to the wonderful atmosphere that exists at Regency Heritage. From the moment we walked in, it was warm and cheery, just like home. The staff helped me with care and kindness. Being in the field for many years, I am attuned to the empathy and compassion of health care workers, and what I observed and personally experienced was above average to the nth degree.

Regency Heritage

From the beautiful facility and grounds, to the amazing staff and caregivers, putting my dad in Regency for his final days, was one of the best decisions we ever made when the staff learned of his passing, several people who had taken care of him were brought to tears, stating that although he had spent only a short time there, he made a lasting impression.

We will forever be grateful.

Naomi Landsberg

Thank you Teresa for the review on the care your loved one received here at Regency Heritage. We appreciate your feedback.

Review of Regency Heritage

I would like this comment to be seen by Regency owner, David Gross. My mom was admitted last May to Regency Heritage under Medicaid. Then in January she inherited what we consider a large amount of money. All parties were notified and we made the transition to private pay very easily. What I really wanted to say to you was that the care is the same, and that is truly a compliment to you and your staff. To know that when my mom had no money her good care was the same as it is now. I do hope you get the jist of what I'm saying and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Review the Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

What can I say, my experience here was awesome! I don't know where I would be physically without the care that I received here. Rodjena and the PT staff were very inspirational in my road to recovery.

Review of Regency Heritage in Somerset

I was recently a patient at the Regency Rehabilitation Center. The following are my observations that may be of interest to you:

All of your staff were courteous and helpful. The physical therapy was outstanding. My therapist Daisy not only did her job, but did it with a sense of humor that made the hard part of therapy so much easier. I would have to thank the staff for the attention they paid to my needs.

Review of the Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Somerset, NJ

I just want to thank you for all the help you gave to me during my stay at Regency. I also want to tell you that your rehab staff was extremely competent and caring when I came in. When I came in, I was close to a vegetative state. It took 3 people just to get me to stand, but with their help and professionalism, I was able to pick myself up and walk the halls with a walker. I have had rehab before, but never like what they gave me. On a scale of 1-10, I rate them a 10.

I would also thank the nursing staff, especially Latisa and Edward. Also, the aides were very helpful.

You can be assured that I will recommend Regency to anyone that needs a great facility!

My sister Judy and I wish to thank the staff at Regency Heritage for the service they provided to our Mother, Edith during her 15 year residency there. So many years, so many shifts, so many departments make it difficult to mention all of the individuals who were especially sensitive and helpful during this time and I don’t want to leave anyone out who should be mentioned. Days, evenings, nighttime, weekends, holidays, I have been to the home and found caring people there to help with that moment’s problem. Directors, assistant directors, supervisors, nurses, therapists, dieticians, aides; even doctors and rabbis, all know my name and who my Mother was and what her special issues were. I didn’t always think so in the heat of the moment, but now as I reflect back, it really has been a “home” for our Mother.

Judah Gutwein

Joel,

Thank you so much for this beautiful review.

We miss Edith!

God bless you and best of luck in all that you do.

From the Office

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.
