Regency House provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. We are committed to providing individualized care of excellent quality with the personal touch.

Regency House believes our residents are extraordinary people who refuse to allow temporary setbacks or disabilities to affect them permanently. Their determination and effort become invaluable tools in the rehabilitation process. It is our greatest privilege to partner with them – or you, or your loved one – during recovery and become your strongest advocate on the road to reclaiming independence.
Regency House provides short-term rehabilitation at the highest standards. We partner with The Therapy Center which employs over 200 full time therapists. They are mentored by Louisiana's only Geriatric Certified Occupational Therapist. This allows us to tailor our residents’ individual needs with the goal of increasing strength, mobility, and maximizing daily functions.
A physical therapist will create a plan of care to help you improve strength, balance, and endurance while an occupational therapist will work with you to master activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation and other skills. A speech therapist is available to work with you in the areas of swallowing, speech, memory, and cognition.
We focus on caring for residents with many conditions including, but not limited to: joint replacement, orthopedic injuries, stroke and neurological conditions, cardiac-related problems, pulmonary impairment, diabetes management, post-surgical recovery, and wound care.
Our team of Licensed and Registered Nurses, along with our Certified Nursing Assistants, are attentive to your needs 24 hours a day. Your recovery plan will be lead, hand-in-hand with your physician, by expertly trained staff who will work individually with you or your loved-one to provide the optimal nursing care and attention required. Your skilled nursing will include ongoing evaluation and assessment to ensure you achieve the fullest recovery.
Regency House is a private pay and Medicare certified skilled nursing facility. We accept Medicare, Medicare-Supplement insurance policies and Long Term Care insurance. We do not accept Medicaid.
TYPES OF THERAPY
Physical Therapy is a primary care specialty that uses mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy, electrotherapy, and various other interventions to practice evidence-based treatments, remediate impairments, promote mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.
A speech therapist will work with our residents to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive communication, and swallowing disorders. One of the tools we use in speech therapy is VitalStem Therapy. This therapy is a non-evasive, external electrical stimulation therapy for the treatment of dysphagia with application to the anterior neck.
A occupational therapist is someone who helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Common occupational therapies includes helping people recover from injury to regain skills and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
