In 1969, Emil Fish, founder and president of Regency Park Senior Living, together with his father, decided to open their first senior residence. "It was a big move for us," says Mr. Fish, looking back on the decision, "but my father and I believed - and I still maintain - that combining compassionate care and first-class service is the formula for success in this industry."
The formula succeeded indeed, and Regency Park continued to grow. "Although we had many opportunities to expand, we consciously decided that rather than being the biggest, we wanted to be the best - in Pasadena," says Richard Kale, executive vice president.
Fittingly, The Fair Oaks by Regency Park, the company's newest independent and assisted living community, has been named the Best in Senior Living year after year in numerous citywide polls. Regency Park Oak Knoll, the first Regency Park assisted living community, consistently receives some of the highest resident and family satisfaction results in the country, while Regency Park Astoria offers the most affordable high-quality care and service options in Pasadena.
For Regency Park Senior Living, the journey continues, with the same goal now as when the company began: superior service delivered by a devoted staff and an experienced management team. "And for 2016," Mr. Fish adds, "we are committed to setting an even higher standard of excellence by consistently exceeding the expectations of our residents and their family members."
