Nursing Home Reviews for Regency Gardens Post-Acute Rehabilitation and Nursing Center

I visited this facility

I was a rehabilitative patient with 2 Regency facilities (Regency Jewish Heritage in Somerset and Regency Gardens in Wayne, NJ - long story) from December 19 thru February of last year after undergoing hip replacement surgery. I was recently invited back to their faciIity in Somerset NJ for a free and poignant movie screening (under the name Project Witness) sponsored by Regency Heritage in conjunction with the Holocaust remembrance day. I was grateful to receive this follow up communication and invitation from Regency, which prompted me to post my review here. I see some positive reviews and a few negative reviews online and while I cannot talk for others, I can only share my experience in the hopes that it will benefit others. Regency Heritage and Regency Gardens earned my trust and gratitude by putting me on the road to recovery in a relatively short period of time. My physical and occupational therapists were courteous and professional and I was always treated with respect. The facilities were clean and inviting and my Wife and family members received free meals and updates whenever they'd come to visit. Caring for an elderly and compromised patient isn't easy. Regency cared for me, as though I was family.

My niece was a patient at their facility until her death IN august OF 2016. Over the course of 3 years, we had the opportunity to spend weeks at a time at their nursing home. We are grateful for the care she received from their staff. Everyone was so kind and caring. Lisa was a patient, but was treated like family. Regency Gardens has our gratitude.

I didn’t like Regency Gardens. It reminded me of an uninviting hospital, which is not what I’m looking to put my mom in. The staff was very nice, and the rooms were very clean, but I didn’t like the environment.

Provider Response

We take our reputation very seriously at Regency Gardens and duly appreciate and respect the consumers ability to publish their online reviews (positive and/or negative). Indeed, our overwhelmingly positive and qualified consumer reviews online, speaks volumes regarding our commitment to customer satisfaction. Every published review online, affords us the ability to glean valuable information which we consistently use to enhance our programs and re-double our efforts to ensure 100% customer satisfaction, 100% of the time. We understand that items such as personal taste and preference are subjective (by definition) and that what one individual may find appealing is perhaps not the same for the next person. We are very proud of the beauty and aesthetics of our warm and inviting environment at Regency Gardens and we are in fact, a home and a haven for our residents. Our tasteful décor and many amenities are on display right here on this webpage via full color photographs and a virtual video tour.

It is difficult to express my deepest feelings concerning my Jane's four years at Regency Gardens in Wayne. The wonderful caregivers like Carmela, Carol, Mary, Kristen and Nurse Kristen, is unprecedented. I shall continue to sing your praises to anyone needing a second home!

My Father, Joseph M. has been a resident at Regency Gardens in Wayne, NJ for the past few years. We transplanted him from a different facility because Regency was geographically convenient for family visits and it was highly recommended by friends and families who had relatives there. We all agree that we made an excellent choice. We are especially pleased by the meals that are served. The food is always top quality and tailored to the residents needs. Joseph is 94 years old and we are quite pleased with the care and hard work of the staff. Pat N.

Regency Gardens Nursing and Sub-acute Rehabilitation Center is especially accommodating for a husband and wife in the same room and sharing in activities. As a pampered wife, my husband did everything for me. The Regency Gardens continued to take care of my needs when he was not capable. It's very comfortable on the second floor where the nurses are professional, compassionate and understanding; and the aides are always helpful and attentive. There are many activities available to anyone who wishes to participate. It has been a rewarding experience for me!

I seldom write lengthy reviews for anything, but it is deserved in this case. If you were a "Mr. or Mrs. Regency" resident, here is what you might expect during one day at the home. The morning will be brightened by a trained CNA who will help you rise and shine and who will tempt you with the thought of a good, hot breakfast coming soon. You may join others in the dining room or have breakfast in the privacy of your room. After this healthy start, there are several options - a visit with the therapist, perhaps a shower or some group activity from our recreational staff, such as a ring toss, bowling or an exercise class. By then it is nearly lunch time and families are always welcome for those "look forward to" visits. Your dependable aides are also there to assist you, as well as the skilled nurses. The afternoon has several more recreational activities - bingo, a movie and some days, lively musical entertainment. Trivia sessions are for those who enjoy stimulating the mind, while personal creativity is enhanced by those who work on hand crafted projects. The evening meal is a family social event as well as fine nourishment. Some residents chat on for awhile; others head for quiet time in their rooms or a scheduled shower. During the week, there are Catholic, Jewish and Protestant religious services to complete the all-inclusive care of the whole person. When day is done, we are grateful to and for the professional skill and caring of our staff and nurses. They give a different degree of care to residents, knowing and understanding individual needs. That sums up a "day's observation" here at Regency Gardens!

We recently co-hosted a wine event with Regency Gardens to raise money for a worthy charity in our local community in the Wayne/Paterson NJ area. I was very impressed with their staff and commitment.

We appreciated the care provided to our brother, Joseph Mihalik, while he was a resident at your facility. We feel fortunate that he was able to spend his last years where he was so well cared for!

Kristin, Social Services, gave me a warm welcome to Regency Gardens on the day of my admission. Not too long ago, she was actually my student at the Eastern Christian School While I was recuperating, my Wife would come visit me everyday. I thank God for the many acts of kindness and compassion I witnessed at Regency Gardens Subacute Rehab Center in Wayne, NJ

When I got to Regency Gardens after five months sick in the hospital, the only thing i could do was stand up from my wheelchair. When i left, I could walk and go up and downstairs! Now, I can walk without a walker or a cane and just got the OK to drive again. Of course, since I can drive, i came back to thank all of my buddies who make it possible.

Regency Gardens is a fantastic facility. I would recommend it to anyone. They just really care about the patient, and they'll do anything that they can to help them feel comfortable and feel at home. It's nicely kept. I like the idea that they kept the smell down. People were happy there. They have a good selection of food. If you don't like it, they'll offer you something else. My mother-in-law is in a room with three beds and she loves it. You can tell that they were on top of things. If you ask them to come in and clean the rug, they're there immediately. They aim to please. If you ask the nurse and check the patient out, they're there. If you need to have supplements given to your patient, like my mom has osteoporosis and she likes to try old kind of remedy with grape juice and stuff, they give it to her and there's no problem. I have had absolutely no problems with them at all.

The facility is a very clean and well maintained nursing home. The staff is extremely helpful and cooperative and are willing to help volunteers and students when they feel they can help. The activities available at the nursing home are of wide variety and much entertainment is provided for the residents. While there i did not like the aesthetics of the shower bathroom for patients, it seem jail-cell like. Some of the patients were combative but the staff knew exactly how to accommodate to such situations.
