Wichita, Kansas based Legend Senior Living, owned by Timothy Buchanan, along with Foundation Properties, owned by Wichita resident Brian Warren and Philip Brooks, announced today plans to develop and operate Regent Park Senior Health Care, consisting of a 75 apartment Assisted Living and Memory Care residence along with a 120 bed private pay and Medicare certified Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitative Care Facility, the first to be built in East Wichita in 14 years.
Regent Park will be built at Berkeley Square, located on the NW corner of 13th Street and Greenwich Road. Regent Park will join the Hartman Oil corporate headquarters at the 50-acre mixed use development. Berkeley Square is being developed by Laham Development Company and Devlin Enterprises.
Regent Park will provide a fresh approach to service for seniors through a continuum of care choice including the latest in design and services offered in Independent Living, Assisted Living, memory care services, along with skilled and rehabilitative health care services.
Regent Park Health and Rehab center will be the first of its design in east Wichita. Rooms are clustered in neighborhoods of 36, each with private dining, living room areas, café, covered verandas and 24 hour Bistro Kitchens offering individual dining and meal times. The smaller, residentially designed neighborhood features shorter, easy to negotiate halls and large windows with daylight views, along with easy access to secure outdoor landscaped patios and porches. The individual resident suites are more spacious and designed to minimize the “institutional” atmosphere found in other skilled nursing facilities. Central to the Nursing Center is the state of the art Rehabilitation and Therapy Center.
Regent Park Assisted Living and Memory Care residence will provide individually tailored assistance to older adults who can no longer live alone, but don’t require an advanced level of skilled medical care. The non-institutional residence emphasizes a homelike residential design with an interior courtyard featuring landscaped porches and patios. Private apartments range in size from studio to large one bedroom and two bedroom apartments. The Reflections Memory Care neighborhood features beautiful private suites and the latest programming and services designed to meet the needs of individuals with memory impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Regent Park Health Care, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing will operate as part of a continuum of care associated with The Regent Independent Living Residence at 2050 N. Webb Road, owned and operated by Legend Senior Living. Legend Senior Living was founded by Mr. Buchanan in 2001 and is dedicated to providing quality services and housing to senior adults.
Legend Senior Living owns and operates assisted living and retirement residences in Kansas, Oklahoma and Florida. Locally, Legend Senior Living owns and operates Park West Plaza, a continuum of care campus offering Independent Living Apartments, Assisted Living residences, and a private pay nursing residence.
Foundation Properties, founded by Mr. Warren and Mr. Brooks in 1998, owns and operates assisted living residences and nursing homes in Kansas and Nebraska. Their scope of services includes numerous continuing care campus programs along with Alzheimer’s and related dementia facilities programs.
