“This place is different,” said new resident John to his son and daughter in law. After hearing about the remarkable care at Regina Health Center (RHC), John’s family brought him here from another health care facility. His daughter-in-law told us that John was not overly social but in his first week at RHC, he had opened up his heart to the other residents. She said, “We were grateful for RHC’s ‘buddy system.’” She was referring to the other residents who lovingly encouraged him to dine and attend other activities with them. John’s illness took him, but the family felt at peace knowing that his last days were spent surrounded by the love and friendship of his new caregivers and friends.
