  • Summer Fitness

    Summer Fitness

    According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U. S. An inactive lifestyle is a top risk factor for heart disease which means regular exercise can help lower the risk. The benefits of regular exercise include strengthening the heart, lowering blood pressure, improving muscle tone, and reducing body fat to reach a healthy weight. Most people need at least 30 minutes of exercise per day to receive health benefits. If 30 minutes of time is too difficult, divide the activity into three 10-minute sessions instead. In addition to providing fitness equipment at work, VIP also makes sure to include a variety of fitness activities as part of the Off-Site Day Habilitation (OSDH) program. Summer is the perfect time to go outside as there are so many activities from which to choose. Three of the more popular OSDH fitness events include swimming, going to the gym, and visiting local parks. Read More

About Regency

Regency Management provides housing facilities, programs and services specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities. Our purpose is to meet their physical, social, and psychological needs, and to promote their health, security, and happiness. Regency apartments enable adults with disabilities the ability to enjoy the independence of having a home of their own, located near family and friends. The charges for such facilities and services to be predicated upon the provision, maintenance, and operation thereof on a not-for-profit basis.100_1432_web

It is a supported living program which provides support to primarily independent persons with the help of case management and home living skills. The goal is to promote their independence and self-reliance; therefore, staff members are present at the facility on a planned basis to offer assistance and support.

Support staff are available to assist with cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and personal hygiene. Depending on the personal needs of the individual, some staff members also teach skills in cooking, nutrition, and money management.

In addition, residents are encouraged to create friendships by participating in community activities, both in and out of the residence. Staff members plan monthly activities in the community room for the residents, such as game nights, arts and crafts, exercise activities, reading groups, and movie nights.

Residents are allowed to furnish and decorate their apartments, making their homes more comfortable, functional, and personal.

If you or a family member are interested in moving to a semi-independent housing facility, contact us! We can also assist you in navigating the necessary paperwork required by DMH or other state requirements.
