We almost signed up with Regency Oaks. It was a very homey type place, and there was not a nursing home feeling to it. The apartments were pretty spacious and nice. The grounds were beautiful. The location is in a good place. The salesperson that we dealt with was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We had some friends that belong there. They signed up and bought into there. We knew them, and they recommended it very highly. All of the above was OK. They had a skilled nursing facility, but they didn't have any memory care or assisted living type. They just had independent living and skilled nursing. They have nursing staff available, so if you need somebody for assisted living, you can have them come in. They don't have a separate facility for assisted living. The staff they bring in as you need them; they're readily available. It's assisted living, but it's on an as-needed basis kind of thing.
They had a lot to offer. They had a pool. They had a tavern, and they had a woodworking shop. They had lots of stuff available to do with libraries, groups, and a workout room. It was really a great facility, but just without the memory care. The kind of help that they were offering, I could do here and what I'd be giving up was free meals, the amenities and so forth. Like my friends, they don't need all of that. When I went to their apartments, it was a great setup. It really was a very nice place. They have the staff, the whole facility, and all the stuff that was there, but they didn't have everything that I was looking for.
Thank you J.P. for your detailed comments. I am glad your friends like Regency Oaks and that you generally find our community appealing.
I did want to correct one item as it relates to Assisted Living. We do have a separate Assisted Living Facility. It has 26 rooms. For those that can, and want to extend their time in our Independent apartments, they can hire in-home care via our Innovative Home Services group. This can range for help with medication, dressing, bathing, etc. to prolong the resident's time there before transitioning to Assisted Living.
Many of our residents in Assisted Living or our Skilled Nursing Facility have some level of dementia as a part of their overall diagnosis. We are able to treat those residents with great care. Once their disease progresses to where a locked facility is necessary, we do not currently have that level of care available, but can transfer you to one of our other sister communities in our immediate area. Thia is our next planned expansion, however, we don't have the exact dates of that at this time.
Again, thank you for your thoughtful comments and please let me know of any questions and how we can be of assistance to you.
