It takes a village” We want to take the opportunity to thank Marie B, Susan B, Saint Vil and all of the caregivers in the “Berkshire” wing for their kindness, patience and compassion while caring for our moon.
We would like to thank the “behind the scenes” off-staff like “Scotty” in Admissions who made it possible. Raven and Linda who have helped us dot all of the “i’s” and cross all of the “t’s”.
We would like to thank Robin, Niki, and Jackie in the activities area for their support and help in the celebrating of Mom’s birthday.
Special thanks to “energizer bunny” Jennifer Epstein, in Social Services who keeps going.

I spent about 3 months in this facility with a shattered knee joint. Never did I encounter anyone who was not caring, pleasant and competent. I had serious complications following knee surgery and they brought me back from being in serious pain, and unable to even sit up on a gurney – to walking bipedal with a wheeled walker at discharge. After discharge, and subsequent home care and out-patient care – I am now walking normally and healthy.
The facility is kosher as are the meals – but they were nutritious and tasted quite well. Overall, I would equate it to a cruise, without the ship; they will give you as much as you can eat and I actually gained weight along with considerable strength through daily physical and occupational therapy. I learned something about another culture, and thoroughly enjoyed the recovery experience, despite the restrictions of a kosher diet to a non-kosher individual. Visitors were allowed to bring me pizza and cheeseburgers.
It is not an acute facility, but my healing process needed a less strenuous recovery anyway. I received 2-3 hours of therapy each day, including Saturday and Sunday to the limits of my safe endurance. One of the better features is that they assigned me one individual, who worked with me primarily, except on his 2 days of per week. Robert and Bernie were big men, capable of catching me if I fell, and they saved me every time I faltered. Even the aide, who bathed me when I was immobilized, was there to save me one time when I slipped in the shower. Further, I would emphasize that the Occupational Therapy “is a key part of successful recovery”. The strength training accelerates one’s metabolism and the healing process.
My devoted wife was with me constantly following my accident and they did everything to accommodate her.

Here I go again, my third stay at Regents Park. A hip replacement and fracture of that bone has brought me back for rehab.
Why Regents Park again? Because two previous stays for others rehabs gave me the ability to walk properly and drive my car. The Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy departments are the most dedicated to those who wish to succeed. The staff is constantly encouraging each individual – and always with a smile. Each patient is heartened to keep at it toward recovery!
I encourage anyone seeking rehab for minor or major health problems to consider Regents Park. I was able, once again, to walk and drive, and I am thankful to the staff for helping me attain my goal, for the third time!

On May 6th 2013 I entered Regents Park as a patient. The care I received in general was very good. However, I was most impressed with the Occupational and Physical Therapy I received. The entire staff was pleasant and helpful, but I have special thanks for Jennifer and Daniella, who were kind, considerate, and firm.

Angels DO exist and they are working at Regents Park in Boca Raton. My mom has been there 3 times now and the care she receives and the loving way the staff goes about performing their duties is unsurpassed. Thank you Regents Park Angels for all that you do for all of our loved ones!
