Regency House Assisted Living in Hixson, TN

Regency House is great and is the place my Mom calls her home. This facility is run like a finely tuned machine, and the staff is always friendly and attentive to their residents. Recently my Mom broke her hip and was in a rehab facility, and with her Dementia, she was declining due to the different surroundings. The staff at Regency visited her several times and saw the same thing then jumped through hoops to get her back home, so they could care for her and get oversee her rehab. My Mom is doing much better now as a result, and that's just one example of Kimberly, Sharon and the rest of the staff going the extra mile. THANKS to all at Regency House for taking such good care of my Mom. My family and I couldn't be happier!

Morning Pointe of Hixson

Everything is good for my mom as a resident of the community, she tells me she is fine. The staff are very nice and do a good job for the residents. The meals are good for the most part with a small issue that they were open to resolve. Activities are available for her participation when she is ready. It has still been a transition for her. Based on our experience, I would recommend them.
