Join Regency Today In A Moment Of Remembrance

Hi Friends!

Happy Memorial Day.

I’m grateful for the great feedback we have already received on Facebook and elsewhere, regarding the poignant and powerful Memorial Day message from our President, sent out right before the weekend (if you did not receive the email, find it here).

Now we’d like to know, where will you be at 3pm today and what will you be doing?

Why do I ask?

Well, the National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute.

Here is how this special moment evolved:

On Memorial Day, 1997 Taps” was played at 3:00 PM on many radio and television stations across the Nation as Americans paused to remember the men and women who have lost their lives in service to our country.  In 2000, then-president Bill Clinton signed the `National Moment of Remembrance Act,” which designates 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day each year as the National Moment of Remembrance to remember and honor the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.

There are various organizations who participate in this moment of silence: all Major League Baseball games halt, Amtrak train whistles sound across the country, and hundreds of other nationwide participants remind Americans to pause for the Memorial Day National Moment of Remembrance – some of which include:

  • Greyhound
  • Empire State Building
  • National Grocers Association
  • Statue of Liberty
  • Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
  • NASCAR
  • NASA
  • Liberty Bell

So, today at 3:00 PM take a minute to remember America’s fallen and their families. During this Moment, 200 Amtrak trains will blast their whistles, approximately 500,000 Major League Baseball fans are joined in silence, and countless other participants make a vow to remember

Will you help us honor their call?

Message From Regency President & Founder, David Gross

Dear Regency Family and Friends,

9/11/2001

I’m sure you knew exactly where you were at 8:46 am.

Everything changed after that.

We saw with pristine clarity, the face of evil and those who wish to destroy our way of life and our freedoms.

We witnessed true bravery and the unassailable spirit of everyday Americans and heroes in uniform who put their lives on the line when it mattered most.

Evil needs to be vanquished and eradicated wherever it exists.

Each of us has the ability to do our own share in our sphere of influence to expel the forces of darkness and light the candle of freedom.

Every smile, every gesture of kindness towards someone you care about, serves to further the cause of hope.

Tomorrow at Regency Nursing Centers in New Jersey, we remember our fallen heroes, and we salute our brave men and women in uniform who fight still, so that we may enjoy our freedoms.

We embrace them with our thoughts and prayers and with our everlasting gratitude.

“Let Freedom Ring!!”

Warm Regards,

David Gross, L.N.H.A.

Message From Regency Founder, Mr. David Gross

On Tuesday, November 11th, the Regency Family will join the entire nation in honoring and celebrating our precious War Veterans.

Veteran’s Day is a time to recognize, appreciate and honor all our brave men and women of the Armed Forces, whose blood was shed in their ultimate acts of self sacrifice so that we may enjoy our freedom and liberties in this great Country of ours.

America’s surviving war veterans must be guarded and treasured as living heroes of the highest caliber.

I am proud that at Regency Nursing Centers we host many War Vets, who call Regency their home and are thriving in health and happiness under our expert care and devotion.

I join all of our dedicated staff in honoring and saluting you for your dedicated service to our Country.

I further reaffirm my commitment to spare no effort or expense in providing you with the singular care and compassion which has become the ‘Regency Hallmark of Excellence.’

Regency Nursing Centers Celebrates 25 Years!

Message from the Regency Founder and President

Mr. David Gross; Founder and President
Mr. David Gross; Founder and President

Dear Friends,

As we transition into 2014, I am proud to inform you of an important milestone for the Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers!

This year marks our 25th Anniversary!

25 Years of Excellence!
25 Years of Excellence!

During the past quarter century, Regency has experienced exponential growth and success. What began as a single facility in Hazlet has grown into four World Class skilled nursing facilities and an adult day medical center.

We have shared many great memories together. We have grown together. We have overcome challenges and have never wavered in our deep and abiding commitment to our patients and families.

We have spared no expense in tackling evolving technologies and initiatives for growth which have consequently placed us at the forefront of our industry.

Indeed, Regency Nursing Centers has earned its place as a leader and model of excellence in the world of Senior Healthcare.

Our core philosophy and guiding principles continue to be the same as they were from the very beginning.

They are:

  •  Our uncompromising commitment to excellence
  •  Our pursuit of the most talented, dedicated and compassionate staff.

I am proud to say that here at Regency, your words, actions and thoughtfulness place resident dignity and care on display each and every day. I see it in the way you treat residents like your own family, whether they are receiving post-acute care, sub-acute care, short-term rehab or long-term care.

Your professionalism, kindness and compassion, has consistently earned us the highest 5-Star ratings for excellence from all sectors, including The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, Gannet World News and USA Today.

In fact, Valerie Fisher, District Manager from the Social Security Administration, recently said this about Regency: “Your personalized care and homelike atmosphere for your residents serves as a model in patient care.” This is high praise coming from someone who evaluates numerous skilled nursing facilities throughout the state.

At Regency we truly are the place “Where caring comes to life!” and with this continued mandate and mindset, we will surely share in another 25 years of achievements.

Finally, I want to say thank you to the wonderful Regency staff for your constant love, kindness and compassion towards everyone in our care. Regency would not be Regency without all of you!

Warm Regards,

David Gross L.N.H.A.

Regency Nursing Launches a New Blog!!

On behalf of our beloved Founder and President, we are excited to report the launch of a (second) BRAND NEW REGENCY BLOG to all of you faithful readers and followers!!

The new blog will be structured differently than our blog right here at www.njnursing.com.

For one thing, our new blog is hosted right on our corporate Regency Website!

Whereas on this blog we post compelling newsworthy items, but also engage in awesome, light and funny ‘Regency banter’, the new blog will be more of an informational venue and industry resource.

Of course, we invite you to continue following us in both places

Check out our new blog at www.RegencyNursing.com/blog

I extend a personal thank you to MDU and also to the awesome and brilliant Tzvi Gross, for his help.

Hey Tzvi, as a token of my appreciation, please allow everyone else to get a kick out of your picture below!!!

Our beloved Regency President and Founder, Mr. Gross, asked me to share this message with all of you.

Dear Friends,

I have always been proud of our ability to provide exceptional customer service and care. These are two hallmarks that make Regency truly special and are areas where we really shine.

Our focus on customer satisfaction is why select staff received special training provided by Disney, which ultimately resulted in all staff becoming certified by the I Care Network. This program is based on three “I principles” – Initiate, Interact and Inspire.

Previously, I talked to you about Initiate and Interact. Today, I would like to spend a few moments on Inspire.

To inspire someone is to fill them with revitalizing energy and emotion. At Regency, we use every opportunity to inspire by creating…

  • Memorable Experiences
  • Lifelong Relationships
  • Teamwork, Pride and Trust
  • Personal and Professional Growth

I was recently asked what inspires me. There are so many things that it’s hard to list them all! One thing I know for sure is that I draw inspiration from the staff at each of the buildings. You all work hard every day to embody the Regency philosophies of I Care and “Where Caring Comes to Life!” Your work your love and your care are seen every day by me, the residents and their families. I know this for a fact because in a recent satisfaction survey, 100% of families rated both the overall quality of care, as well as the overall facility operations as “Excellent/Good”….now that’s inspiring!

We were also honored to host one of the truly most inspiring events – the (world record) gathering of Centenarians. To have 40 people over the age of 100 and their families in one room was remarkable. The wisdom, history and love felt in the room, touched the hearts of all that attended and made for a really memorable experience.

I’d like to express my personal appreciation for the dedication to the I Care program by each and every member of the Regency family. I know you will continue to live up to the Regency gold standard of going above and beyond in providing care.

Sincerely,

David Gross, L.N.H.A.

Regency Nursing Centers Sets Possible World Record!

Mr. David Gross - Regency Founder and President
Mr. David Gross – Regency Founder and President

Flashes popped and smart phones bobbed up and down for position. Small children pushed their way past taller adults to get a better view. Gasps of admiration escaped from wide-eyed spectators as “You Make Me Feel So Young” played in the background.

On Sunday, May 19, Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehab Center, celebrated an event of epic proportions. 40 men and women, all of them centenarians, gathered together in the magnificent auditorium at Regency to rejoice in life itself!

They came from all across New Jersey and were treated to a spectacular program, with music, delicious food and great cheer, all courtesy of Regency Heritage.

Collectively, these heroic individuals represent a jaw dropping 4000 cumulative years of life’s experiences. It was simply amazing to be in the room and to witness this historic gathering!

I believe we were able to achieve a new world record for the books, since the last documented gathering of this nature was in the UK in 2009 and featured 29 centenarians.

Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Regency, Marie Barnes, worked tirelessly to put together this wonderful event and her efforts were well rewarded.

Regency Founder and President, Mr. David Gross, expressed his gratitude for hosting this event and for continuing to blaze a trail of excellence in healthcare. Indeed, Regency has become the standard by which others measure themselves.

We were also written up in the New Jersey Star Ledger!

Check it out.
