Regency Park Nursing Administrator – A Lesson in Compassion

It is a privilege to be able to spotlight Mr. Joseph Bernfeld, who is the Administrator at Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation in Hazlet NJ. In case you don’t know what he looks like, here is a photo of him with myself, my wife and children and our corporate administrator at a recent Regency event!

Since I work in the Admissions Office, I often get to tour our building with families from the community.

Invariably, we will bump into Joseph walking the halls greeting our residents and their families. When he isn’t busy looking after the successful running of our beautiful facility, he is meeting with families to offer advice and guidance.

The analogy I often use to describe the impact of his visible presence in our building is to compare and contrast with the fabled ‘Wizard of Oz’.

Here you have the all mighty and powerful Wizard who pulls all the strings, albeit in the background behind a curtain of secrecy and seclusion. We never see him or interact with him directly until the very end of the story.

This is similarly true for most nursing home administrators. You never see them or hear from them until there is a problem. They hide behind a veiled façade and there is no accountability.

Not so, with Joseph Bernfeld.

Our Administrator is a visible and reassuring presence in our building. He is available and accessible to anyone and for anything. This endearing quality is the reason he is so successful in the managing of our building, our staff, our residents and their families.

To contact Joseph Bernfeld, please call 732-264-5800
