Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Center


Those who read my articles and blog know how proud I am of our organization and the respect we command (rightfully so) in the Healthcare community and beyond.

Our Founder and President, Mr. David Gross, is an industry visionary and trailblazer for over 25 years.

He has been invited by elected officials, members of both Houses of Congress and The United States President himself, to attend critical conferences and symposiums in order to share his valuable insight and input regarding Healthcare initiatives and reforms.

I recently blogged here about an event hosted by President Obama at the White House, with Mr. Gross in attendance (he received a personal invitation from the President).

Mr. Gross doesn't talk much about these exceptional occasions, nor does he highlight  his distinctions, recognitions and accomplishments.

So I will!

Just a few weeks ago, noted NJ Congressman, Rep. Bill Pascrelll (Ways and Means Committee, Subcommittee on Health and Committee on The Budget) personally invited Mr. Gross to participate in (and to address) a special Healthcare Advisory Meeting regarding The Afforable Care Act and other pressing Healthcare related issues.

I got my hands on the letter.

See below.

So am I proud?

Yes, extremely.

How Income Trusts / 'Miller Trusts' Work

Written by



Income trusts are created for the specific and expressed purpose of helping the individual qualify for Medicaid under his/her specific State mandated criteria.


This trust is especially helpful and, indeed, vital in states that have a set income limit for qualifying for Medicaid. Sometimes referred to as Qualifying Income Trusts, or “Miller Trusts” (based upon a singular court case with the same name), they are used when a Medicaid applicant has income in excess of the required cap and is therefore not eligible for Medicaid, yet concurrently unable to pay privately for nursing home care.



How the Income Trust Works



With an income trust, a significant portion of the money that comes through the trust goes right back out to pay Medicaid for part of the expenses associated with the plan of care.


It bears mentioning that a qualified income trust doesn’t protect income for the Medicare applicant, however without such an income trust the applicant wouldn’t qualify for Medicaid altogether.


For example, if a Medicaid applicant gets a Social Security check for $2,800 but the income cap is $2,100, the applicant wouldn’t qualify for Medicaid. But if the Social Security check is direct-deposited into an income trust, the applicant will qualify for Medicaid, even though much of the $2,800 will be used to pay the applicant’s portion of cost for long-term care.


It is also important to note that Medicaid includes and incorporates gross income into their eligibility criteria, which includes the Medicare Part B premium (typically deducted from the individual’s Social Security checks.)

Annual Community BBQ At Regency Jewish Heritage!

Written by

From the desk of Marie Barnes, Regency Marketing Director.


Regency Jewish Heritage Post-Acute, Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 380 DeMott Lane, Somerset, NJ, hosted their annual community BBQ on Sunday, August 9th, benefiting the Chai Lights Hadassah.  Community members from the Somerset adult communities attended this fun-filled annual event.


Approximately 100 residents were present.   


Delicious food was served cooked outside on the grill, in addition to summer salads, corn on the cob, providing choices for all tastes, along with delicious desserts.  The attendees chose to sit under umbrellas or bask in the sunshine on the beautiful expansive patio located at the facility.  


During the afternoon, everyone enjoyed the live entertainment of Bobby Brescia.  The entertainer sang, played a variety of music, and everyone got up to dance.  There was line dancing, the slide, the Hora, and couples enjoyed slow dancing.  It is an event that the community looks forward to throughout the year.  


For further information regarding Regency Jewish Heritage, call, 732-873-200, or visit,  


Pictured is a group of ladies enjoying the music, and dancing the Hora, along with "Ken and Barbie", a couple from the Canal Walk community, enjoying some slow dancing.

Nursing Home Compare - A Special Report

Written by

Great info from AARP's website!


Sometimes the need for a nursing home comes unexpectedly. Your parent falls or has a serious medical diagnosis and is being discharged from a hospital, but he or she still requires skilled care.

AARP recommendations for the right questions to ask when choosing a nursing home for a family member- a nurse walks with a patient outside

Asking the right questions is key to choosing the best nursing home for your loved one. — Photo by Mikkel Grabowski/Gallery Stock



Choosing the right home can be difficult. As with any big decision, it pays to do some research.

First, consider the location. It's best for the nursing home to be one that family and friends can visit often. People in nursing homes who have regular visitors usually receive better care.

Also, try to visit a few nursing homes — with your parent and other family members, if possible — so you can make comparisons.


When touring a nursing home, remember to:

  • Observe the activities offered to residents;
  • Taste the food;
  • Visit at least twice;
  • Make one unscheduled stop on the weekend or evening when there may be staffing problems.

Talk to nursing staff to make sure the kind of care your loved one needs is provided. Ask about things such as:

  • Transportation to medical appointments;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Staff with special training for dealing with your parent's condition;
  • Special units, programs or services for special needs, such as dementia.

Our Subacute Rehabilitation unit at Regency Nursing Centers is an inpatient medical and rehabilitation program designed specifically for patients who do not require acute medical care, but who are not yet performing at their prior level of function and may require continued medical management. 

Subacute rehabilitation provides a targeted and outcome-oriented, interdisciplinary approach to help patients achieve maximum independence with all activities of daily living.  Our onsite physicians, nurses and therapists maintain constant and ongoing communication regarding patients' medical status and functional progress and work diligently together with Regency to help our patients achieve their goals.

I’m not even sure how to begin this post…

This new partnership is so outside of the box and so creative, I’m floored myself.
