Long-Term Care; Making Informed Choices

At Regency Nursing Centers, we are all about empowering consumers to make the right choices.

With world-class skilled nursing and rehab centers in New Jersey, there is no reason to fall into the trap of choosing anything less for your loved one.

Back in 2015, I was interviewed by the good folks at the popular consumer healthcare resource website, www.SeniorAdvisor.com regarding this topic.

SeniorAdvisor.com has always been a great friend of Regency Nursing Centers because of our shared commitment to protecting our seniors. They have a deep and abiding appreciation and respect for the type of care we provide. So when they asked me to write an article on this important topic, I was happy to oblige.

That important article can be found HERE.

Long-Term Care in a Post-pandemic world

The fact is, the world is healing, perhaps a bit slowly, but healing nonetheless.

God willing there will be a vaccine for this pandemic in the not too distant future.

In fact, we are extremely proud at Regency Nursing Centers to be COVID-19 free at our centers!

5-Star rated and COVID-19 FREE is a powerful and winning combination.

It’s why people have continued to entrust us with the long-term care placement for their elderly loved ones for all this time.

It’s also why this important topic deserves a refresh.

How Do You Know When the Time is Right?

The reality is that at some point, even the healthiest and most robust senior will likely require some level of assistance outside the home. If your loved one is experiencing ongoing health difficulties or needs assistance with activities of daily living, take a few moments to answer the questions below. If you can answer yes to any of them, the time has probably come to make a decision concerning long-term care.

  • Has your loved one’s advancing age or a chronic health condition resulted in seriously diminished strength and inability to function independently?
  • Has it become increasingly difficult for family members and friends to provide adequate care without regular professional support?
  • Have escalating clinical needs or changes in behavior rendered the current setting for care inadequate or unsafe?

My Visits To Franciscan Oaks In Denville and Regency Grande In Dover NJ

There are some fantastic healthcare providers in Morris County.

Not too long ago, I had occasion to visit the Franciscan Oaks Skilled Nursing and Short Term Rehab Center located at 19 Pocono Road in Denville NJ.

Just a stones throw from Denville NJ is Dover NJ,  home to the magnificent Regency Grande Post-acute Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center!

I’ve had the privilege of visiting Regency Grande on many an occasion!

What a gorgeous rehab and nursing center!

Regency Grande, Dover, NJ
Regency Grande, Dover, NJ

Regency Grande is located in the historic town of Dover, in New Jersey’s Morris County. Founded in 1722, the picturesque community is actually nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, although it is just 35 miles from Manhattan and approximately the same distance from the Delaware River and the Pennsylvania border. Once a landmark hotel, today the six-story facility has evolved into a wonderful showcase of Regency’s commitment to total patient-centered care and comfortable, home-like living.

Regency Grande’s team of experienced caregivers and support staff provides a variety of long- and short-term healthcare services designed to meet the widely varying and changing needs of our residents and patients, including the elderly, those suffering from prolonged illnesses or disabilities, as well as short-term rehabilitation candidates. Services at the 155-bed facility range from 24-hour skilled nursing to sub-acute care and assistance with basic requirements of daily living in Regency Grande’s gracious assisted living accommodations.

Residents and families alike enjoy the friendly environment, comfortable, cheery rooms, sumptuous dining with choice of meals, beautifully appointed living, dining and recreation areas, as well as a stimulating schedule of activities and entertainment.

Regency Grande is very much a part of the Dover town landscape that, for the past several years, has been undergoing a business and cultural renaissance. Families and residents can step out of our front door and shop for antiques, ride in a paddle boat, visit dozens of boutiques, go to a country-style auction, attend a summer concert, or dine at one of the town’s many fine restaurants.

Easily reached by public bus or rail transportation, or via automobile from major roadways Routes 80, 46 and 10, Regency Grande has emerged as a “grand example” of Regency living!
