Recent reviews of Independent Living in Derby, KS
The Regent in Wichita, KS

My father moved in to the Regent just a couple of months ago and most amazing part has been the staff. They have been absolutely wonderful. None more so than [name removed]- the resident ‘tech help’. My father’s phone began acting up shortly after he moved in. A true nightmare when your loved one lives 1,500 miles away. A month of research and even a trip to the Verizon Store accomplished nothing. But one visit from [name removed] and she spotted the problem and had it fixed in no time. That saved us the money and headache of buying a new phone and setting it up. She’s now my hero.

Comfort and Love Wichita

Even though Comfort and Love community (just like many others) is really expensive, we are very happy with the genuine care our loved one has been receiving. Most of the care givers there are absolutely wonderful - one of the care givers for our loved one even went out of her way and used her own money to buy a small Valentines Day gift, and helped our loved one make a card for his wife. The facility itself is really nice and clean. Based on our experience we would recommend this community to other families.

KMH in Wichita, KS

We absolutely love the KMH community, from the staff it has just been a wonderful positive experience. We have had no drawbacks or complaints whatsoever. The staff members seem very happy and content - they do not put on a show and for that it makes the biggest difference. If the staff are happy and well cared for then the residents will be happy and well cared for. They are very friendly and informative. The community is very clean, there are no fowl odors and friendly and family are welcomed to come and visit at any time. They have great activities there, the staff take our loved one down for her meals where she sits with a group of people for some socialization. The cost is excellent for all the services that are provided.
