Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

Blog

As Part of Regency’s philanthropic efforts, we partner yearly with The Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (www.thecije.org) to host a Golf and Tennis Championship Fundraiser.

Every year, Regency distributes a gift to all of the participants in the event.

At This year’s event, Regency distributed a “Pebble Smart Watch” for Iphone and Android users.

Though I didn’t actually see the watch, I’m told it is very fancy and popular.

I did receive a booklet and a photo. Take a look!

Regency Grande Shines At NJ Health Fair!

Written by

Our Beloved Admission Director at Regency Grande in Dover NJ, Carla Holton, just shared this story with me!

 

Hi Judah. 

 

"Just wanted  to share a cute story  about our cute little teddy bears.   I attended a health fair at one of our adult community’s , Fox Hills  in Rockaway , N.J. on  June 26th.  As you can see in the photo’s I took along several of our teddy bears.   The community there love them for their grandchildren , self etc.    One gentlemen happen to come by and took a teddy bear.  I said oh is that for your grandchild. He and his wife said no and explained that he had just had surgery with a defibrillator inserted and that he was going to use this teddy bear  under his seat belt to protect it from getting damaged in case of and accident.  HE said it was the perfect size.  It actually looks like a hug.     So not only is our bear there to comfort it is there to protect.  I though that was such a great idea."

These are exciting times at our magnificent Regency Heritage Postacute Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, in Somerset NJ!

In addition to our expansive outdoor grounds, which includes parks, waterfalls, gazebos and a private reflection pool, we are now in the midst of constructing a beautiful new patio right outside our Levin wing!!

The patio will offer our residents on this wing a wonderful oasis right nearby, without them having to travel across our sprawling grounds to access our other outdoor spaces and common areas.

Everyone is enthused about this and we can't wait until it is completed.

It will be beautiful!!!

Here is the "before" picture where you will note the construction already in progress.

Stay tuned for the "after" picture!!

Leadership The Regency Way!

Written by

I met a family yesterday for a tour of Regency Park in Hazlet, NJ.

They live in the area and are seeking long term care for their loved one.

They were attracted to us after they conducted an online search for nursing homes in Monmouth County and read our many fantastic reviews online.

In fact, they were surprised that with the plethora of published 5-star testimonials to our credit, that we don't hang signs all over the building pointing people to our reviews online.

They rightfully pointed out that we are singular in this regard from amongst our competitors. Indeed, we continue to set the standards in leadership for our industry.

Their point is actually a very good one, with excellent merit and one which we have considered before (and perhaps at some point we will do something like this).

For now, I simply countered with a great quote (one of my favorites) from the great leader of Britain, the late Margaret Thatcher, who said the following:

 

 

Our tour was a success, and they did mention to me that one of their family members is actually joining in the famous "Running of the Bulls" taking place this week in Spain!

 

I promised them I'd blog it, so Alain, if you're reading this, GOOD LUCK and please stay away from the sharp pointy protrusions on the bull's head; I hear being gored is no picnic!

 

Revelers hold up traditional red neckties during the launch of the "Chupinazo" rocket, to celebrate the official opening of the 2015 San Fermin fiestas in Pamplona, Spain, Monday, July 6, 2015. Revelers from around the world turned out here to kick off the festival with a messy party in the Pamplona town square, one day before the first of eight days of the running of the bulls.

www.SeniorAdvisor.com Promotes Regency On Twitter!

Written by

Our friends at SeniorAdvisor.com promoted us on Twitter this morning vis a vis an article I wrote for them recently.

We deeply appreciate it!

Photo snapshot below:

 

Regency loves healthcare related technology!!

Living healthier is what we are all about.

 

That's why I get a 'kick' out of this nifty little gadget just out on the market.

 

 

In a bid to improve their lifestyles an increasing number of people are turning to sensor-toting wearables, but your environment can be just as important as your body. CubeSensors are sensor-packed devices which monitor external factors and give advice to improve your relaxation, productivity or, in conjunction with a Jawbone or Fitbit tracker, sleep quality. Never missing the chance to sleep in the name of work, we recently spent some quality time with the little cubes.

The wireless CubeSensors themselves are stylish and unobtrusive little cubes which can be deployed in most rooms without worrying about disrupting the decor. Once in place they use an array of sensors to monitor aspects of the environment including air quality, temperature, humidity, temperature, noise, light and pressure. Feedback is given based on what you want to do in that room, either with a shake-prompted glowing light, or in more detail via a web app.

In the box you'll find a micro USB power adapter, a base unit which connects to your router via ethernet cable, along with the CubeSensors and micro USB charging cables (the CubeSensors can last a month on a single charge). CubeSensors come in bundles of two, four or six depending on the number of rooms, and what you want to monitor. We were using the smaller pack for the review, and this meant quite a bit of moving them around around the house over the month-long test to use them in bedrooms, the living room and an office. If you want to monitor a number of rooms simultaneously, we'd advise opting for the bigger packs.

Hospice Care Information and Education

Written by

 

 

 

What is Hospice?

 

Hospice as a strictly clinical designation means the patient has been given 6 months (or less) to live.

However, beyond purely clinical terms, none of us can predict the inevitability of any future outcome. Therefore, at Regency Nursing Centers of New Jersey, we place a special focus on the power of choice and the preservation of life and the quality of life in every possible way.

Hospice care is designed to be palliative – this means that its chief objective is to alleviate pain and provide comfort and serenity at the end of life.

Every life is unique and special; the end of life can be a time of profound awareness and contentment, or a time of intense fear and sadness. Sometimes, it is a combination of both.

The job of any hospice provider is to prepare and nurture the patient with ultimate love and dedication at this crucial time.

The actual care, involves a robust and interdisciplinary approach, including the promise of confidential comfort, care compassion and counseling.

You see, Hospice is not “a place,” but a philosophy of care.

This care may be provided in several different settings, depending upon the will of the patient:

In-home Care: Many patients desire to live at home and be cared for at home during their final months of life.

In-patient Care: If pain and symptoms cannot be managed at home, a patient may be admitted to an approved contracted nursing facility.

 

The ‘Heart’ of Hospice Care

At its very core, Hospice is about respecting a person’s right of self determination. Every individual has a right to choose how they would like to spend the last chapter of their life.

The role of the hospice provider is to help honor that choice by providing the requisite care to both the patient and the family, including:

The right to have their specific needs considered on an individual basis.

The right to maintain their dignity and sense of autonomy.

The right to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

The right to actively participate in decision making and care planning.

The right to remain in the location of their own choosing.

 

Post-Life Care and Services

 

Everyone experiences the loss of a loved one differently. Grieving is a process that can take time, and it is the job of the Hospice provider to navigate these vicissitudes together with the family.

The first step of the healing process is adjusting to the new reality. A good Hospice provider will have a specialized ‘Bereavement Program’ which places emphasis on proving comfort and guidance during this challenging time.

In some instances, counseling begins prior to the end of life and while the hospice patient still has the ability to participate. Other times, the grieving family simply needs a shoulder to cry on and help with saying a proper goodbye. In many instances, families require help with resolving unfinished business and conflicting emotions.

First and foremost, the hospice provider should offer trained and sympathetic listeners.

There are at least several factors that can influence a person’s response to bereavement:

His or her relationship with the deceased.

The supporting role of the family in the care of the patient.

Reaction to any previous loss and their remembrance of that event.

The length of the illness.

The particular disposition of the individual and their emotional expression.

Overall health and particular lifestyle

At Regency Nursing Centers, we also encourage family members to avail themselves fully of our bereavement support and counseling during all phases of grief.

In the final analysis, it is always important to remember that hospice care starts before death but doesn’t end with death.

Instead, families need the emotional support to cope with grief in order to properly heal.
