Frequently Asked Questions

The Board of Directors voted at the August board meeting the following:  

  • Meals on Wheels and package deliveries are to be left in the front entry way.
  • Daily cleaning of table tops, counters, hand rails and door knobs using a sanitizer.
  • Any persons entering the facility must wear a mask and perform hand hygiene with sanitizer available upon entry.
  • Suspending outside groups to utilize the community room. 
  • Coffee time is resuming to M-W-F mornings and Birthday Parties as they occur, in the community room. Social distancing will be practiced as best that it can.

Residents are made aware of of these guidelines through the current proclamation displayed on a bulletin board in the hallway and by a memorandum distributed by the manager.

Since this is an independent living facility, residents have a choice of how much isolation, socialization and compliance they choose to do, being considerate of others and the keeping the communal environment in mind.

The board meets the last Tuesday of the month and at each board meeting discussion will take place concerning the current re-opening guidelines and data before voting on changes in our current policy.

Regency is an apartment style community exclusively for people age 55 and over. It is also a non-profit corporation (501c3) under Iowa state law.  A person must meet three criteria to qualify for Regency ownership:

  1. Be at least age 55 
  2. Qualify financially
  3. Be an “independent” senior

A five-person Board of Directors chosen by the Members. Three resident Directors and two local community members serve and are chosen at an annual meeting.  A Manager and staff carry out the Board’s policies.

Regency is an owner occupied community with prices based on square footage. Those who purchase, own a membership with voting rights in the non-profit corporation. Ownership gives one a membership certificate of title, the apartment of their choice, an elegant and lovely community room for socials and personal use, and free laundry amenities.

Some utilities are included (water, sewer).  Since everyone’s usage is different, our Members have currently voted to pay their own personal gas and electric. Just another way our Members can choose to control their own costs, without subsidizing the expenses of others. Computer & Internet access is FREE! 

Laundry facilities are included and free.

Below are optional for additional fees:

  • Garages:  Attached ($45/mo) or detached ($40/mo)
  • Telephone: Landline or Cell
  • Cable Television: A Mediacom Cable TV 90 channel package is available for $37/mo., with additional packages of your choice, such as extra sports, movies, etc.

You and your personal physicians continue to handle your health decisions.  Regency welcomes all “in home” care and service providers that you or your physicians choose, such as Homeward, At Home Care, Home Instead, Hospice, and others. 

Residents can plan and organize activities independently. There is coffee in the community room for visiting and birthdays and holidays are typically celebrated with pot lucks or other activities. During the winter months, the manager may schedule a program or entertainment to help with the winter “blahs” and give residents something to look forward to.
