Regency House Assisted Living Community in Hixson, TN
Veritas undertakes the renovation of the Regency House Assisted Living Community in Hixson, TN. Veritas assumed operational oversight of the Regency House, a 48 unit/54 bed assisted living facility, as part of a lease agreement with the Nationwide Health Properties (NHP), LLC (the owner of the property). NHP had committed at that time to update the building in order to ensure competitiveness with the new properties that were scheduled to be built in the market. Due to the acquisition of NHP by Ventas, Inc. the renovation program fell off of NHP’s priority list. Veritas has picked the project back up and is independently funding the needed renovations to ensure the great residents of that community live in surroundings that are not only comfortable and upgraded, but therapeutic as well. Chris Landers, President and CEO for Veritas stated that the focus is on activities and choices. The intent of the renovations is to introduce mental, emotional and physical stimulation throughout the community. The first area of renovation replaced an outdated common area that basically served as a TV room and gathering area with a full scale game room. In concert with this phase of the renovation, the community also added a full service beauty and barber salon. Landers stated the next phase of the renovation will focus on the computer library and workout room and hopes the entire community renovation to be completed by December.
