5/2/2013 – Today, we hosted an absolutely magnificent Centenarian event at Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation in Hazlet NJ. (View the photos below.. but you’ll have to read through this first 😉
The event was organized by our very own Corporate Director of Marketing, Mrs. Marie Barnes.
Marie is beloved by the Regency family for her exceptional compassion and for her meticulous and precise dedication which she brings to her work. This was most apparent in today’s beautiful event.
Regency Park had the privilege of hosting the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, who all expressed their appreciation for our exceptional program.
We had numerous centenarians (all of whom looked younger than their respective ages!) from our facility, as well as from Bayshore Healthcare Nursing and Rehab and other rehab facilities in the Hazlet/Holmdel area.
The scrumptious repast was masterfully prepared by our Chef, Aaron Anderson and we had live entertainment with music and song.
The centenarians felt so special sitting all bedecked in their custom made sashes and tasteful fresh rose lapels. Truly, this was a well deserved moment for them to shine surrounded by their grateful and loving families.
Our Regency staff and department heads were also on hand to welcome everyone to our home and to make everyone feel comfortable.
Our Administrator, Mr. Joseph Bernfeld, gave an emotional address, where he proclaimed that today’s unique event is more than just a “birthday to honor a milestone, it is also a celebration of life itself!”
Truer words were never spoken!
The event was capped off with a special dessert in the form of a HUGE custom made birthday cake for our centenarians (wasn’t just pretty, but actually quite delicious too)!
I am so proud of our staff and the entire Regency family.
Regency Nursing is truly a place where the “quality of care comes to life!”
