I had intense pain from 4 fractured ribs and 2 CNA's and a man from housekeeping figured out which mattress to get me! THAT is how my experience at Regency Jewish Heritage in Somerset began - and it only got better from there. In every department, my experiences have been much more than I ever hoped they would be. The people who helped me, the skills, warmth and commitment to me - all the patient interactions I saw - where what helped me learn more, feel better faster, and feel empowered. I can't imagine care more individualized, programs being more appropriate - I can take this home with me! The food I had here was delicious as well. I have nothing but thanks for the people at Regency Heritage

I enjoyed the friendliness of the Regency Heritage. They have been very caring and considerate and therapy is wonderful. I wasn't thrilled to find ants in the bathroom (which is why I'm giving 4 - 1/2 stars) but they did rectify it.

Took a bit long for staff to come. Didn't care much for the breakfast and eggs. I was very happy with the rehab and with the nurses and aides.

My mom was at Regency for six weeks after she broke her leg. The staff was so kind and very helpful. The food was good and always served warm. I would take my mom back to Regency again if she needs it.

I have been in rehabs as a visitor and thought the residents were treated as low class individuals. However, as a resident at Regency, I felt I was treated as FAMILY. The staff - and I mean ALL the staff, were friendly, caring and helpful. I would recommend Regency to family and friends.,

Regency is welcoming, had beautiful paintings on the hallway, and felt like a family atmosphere. The owners would talk to you and ask what we like. The food was not great because my mother complained about it. Their therapy was nice, and my mother had fun doing it. They would do her hair and nails, and had arts and crafts.

Very happy with the services at Regency Heritage. The nursing care and rehab was very good, they are all Caring and compassionate people. Liza the Nurse Practitioner was exceptional. I was very happy to meet the owner, Mr. Gross and Administrator, Mr. Bengio. I own several hotel businesses and I can see this facility is well run. Overall, I have no complaints, it was a positive experience to be at Regency.

My mom is a resident and the Regency is a huge Blessing. She had a stroke June of 2015 and came out of a different facility. She was unable to care for herself and needed 24/7 care. We have been so impressed with everyone at the Regency. My mom has made so much progress it is amazing. She has had all kinds of rehab/therapy and has made incredible progress. The medical staff is very caring and my mom likes all of them. The Regency has beautiful grounds with places to sit and the interior is very tastefully decorated. The dining room is white tablecloth and served. My mom mostly chooses her meals in her room she is very private but has been a little more adventurous lately. My husband and I have dined with her in the lovely dining room and we were very pleased with our dinner. It was delicious. There are many activities to participate in and concerts/shows to watch. My mom likes to watch sports on her large flat screen tv ( she gets more channels than we do!). The business/clerical employees are very friendly and helpful. We couldn't have made it through the mountain of confusing paperwork without them. The Regency is clean beautiful and staffed with wonderful people. They gave the mom that we thought was lost back to us. We love it and more importantly she loves the Regency. Diane and Joe

My father was here twice for rehab. Everything was fine with one exception. It was easily remedied. The food is terrible. But I guess it is somewhat healthy.
Provider Response

On behalf of Regency Heritage, we always respect and appreciate the consumers ability and choice to post their online review regarding their personal experiences at our facility. In this instance, we appreciate the kind comments from Michael Jr. regarding the excellent nursing care we are continuing to provide his Dad, who is currently a resident at Regency Heritage. We equally appreciate the critique regarding the missing articles of clothing. We have a well deserved and stellar reputation of excellence in all areas of customer care, but we are human and will confirm that several articles of clothing were inadvertently misplaced. We immediately worked with the family to locate the missing articles of clothing and were successful in retrieving all but a few small items. We offered to reimburse the family in full for the remaining few items and/or to pay for suitable clothing replacements of the same value. This is a standing offer to Michael JR. which he is aware of and we appreciate his expressed willingness to accept our offer and look forward to fulfilling our commitment as soon as he is ready.

Very attentive and friendly staff, I feel very confident my friend will receive excellent care. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Provider Response

Diana, Thank you so much for your confidence in us at Regency Heritage, where we offer the very best rehabilitation in Somerset woods! Somerset woods has several rehabilitation centers, but none have the stellar and well earned and deserved reputation we enjoy at Regency Heritage. We deeply appreciate your kind words and we wish you much continued health and happiness!

My Dad was here and we were satisfied with therapy and some of the nurses. A few could have had a better bedside manner, but by and large, the majority were excellent. The main thing is, they got me strong and healthy and back home in time for our daughter's baby shower!

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 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. Ty very much

My Dad was a resident here back in February 2016 and we were pleased with the level of care and the therapy. The food could have been a little better. This is a good place and worthy of consideration.

My social worker was cooperative, gave me great recommendations and made me feel like I had a say in my care. Physical therapy was very good, cooperative and I felt as if I had a good rapport with them. This is my third time here.

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!!

We chose Regency Heritage on Demott Lane, in Somerset NJ, because of proximity and because we had heard wonderful things about their facility. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Our Mother, who is 86 years young, was there to recover and rehab from a hip fracture. She has plenty life left to live and it was important to us all that she regain her prior level of functioning and continue to live as independently as possible. She was at the Regency for about 6.5 weeks under her Medicare benefits. The rehab team was fantastic and the care was very compassionate. She was recently discharged to home with a walker and is slowly getting back to herself. Thanks to Regency!

Our Mother was recently a sub-acute patient at Regency Heritage in Somerset NJ. We couldn't have been more pleased with the exceptional care she was provided by the entire staff of dedicated nurses and therapists. Mom was treated with expert care and compassion. She has now regained vital strength in her arms and legs and is on the road to recovery thanks to this 5 star facility!

My Dad was recently at Regency Heritage. The care he received from the aides was tremendous! Sometimes two aides were required to assist, yet they never uttered a complaint. My communication with the head nurse, Gabrielle, was excellent as well. I highly recommend Regency Heritage.

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 on my road to recovery. The nursing staff was on point; I never had to wait long for anything.

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, dietitians, 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.

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. I was close to a vegetative state and 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 mother, Shirley, spent three months in your care. There were several people on your staff who embraced her and i felt that they deserved acknowledgement. Our initial contact person, Marlene, became our "go to person throughout my mother's stay. Her warmth, thoroughness and ability to listen, gave us great comfort. She sat with me during some difficult moments and gave me support, when i needed it. Michael, in the Physical Therapy Center, truly cares about his patients. He went the extra mile with my mother, when others had given up on her. The nursing staff knew her and looked out for her well being. There were so many people that i truly cannot name them all. They cared for my mother, as well as me: Lisa (Nurse Practitioner), Cathy (Head Nurse), Susan, Alema, Sonal, Thelma, Stella, Olivia, Edward, and Edith. I credit Edith with giving me spirit and courage. Your patients are fortunate to have such caring individuals. There were two aides that my mother has a special relationship with: Candy and Salanta. They treated her with love and respect. When my mother had difficulty eating, they would never give up. Their hearts were unwavering. Salanta's resolute commitment to my mother was as if she were a member of our family. We Knew that when Salanta was working, my mother would always have the love and personal care that she needed. I believe that she was touched by knowing my mother as much as my mother was touched by her. I hope that all your staff receives the recognition they deserve.

I was not really overwhelmed by Regency. I didn’t find them as pleasant. I just found it dark, and it didn’t have that real nice feeling when you walked in. I didn’t believe I was able to talk to someone there that was manageable, and they didn’t call me back in a timely manner.

My mom was in temporary rehab at Regency Nursing and Rehab. She was there for physical therapy and the physical therapists were terrific. They actually had her out of the facility a week earlier than they anticipated due to the progress they made. The management was well orchestrated. There was a presence of the management everyday checking in and making sure that my mother was happy. If we had any concerns, it was dealt with immediately. I would recommend them to others.

The Central New Jersey Jewish Home for the aged was one of several assisted living and live-in facilities that we considered for a family member. It was definitely one of the nicest. My husband and I got a very good feeling from the staff and from the other residents. There are about 250 rooms/beds for long term care, which is what we were considering for an aged family member with Alzheimer's. The facility is located on a very nice property, surrounded by a well-maintained natural landscape that the residents can enjoy. The interior was bright, airy, and cheerful. We were impressed with the range of services they have on-site. It's like a little city unto itself, with a dentist, podiatrist, nutritionist, pharmacy, and even an X-Ray and radiology center if needed. There are many nurses per resident and also non-registered nurses who coordinate activites for the seniors. We found the atmosphere very friendly and more consistent with a residence-home than with a hospital facility, which was comforting. In the end we did not use this facility, however the choice was due to other geographic considerations. In all this was probably the best facility we toured and I have since recommended it to friends whose parents are in need of assisted living or long-term care.
