My mother chose Durham Regent because the apartments were a little bigger than the other place she saw and because it has a homey feeling. The staff and the residents are friendly. The food is good, too.

Durham Regent is nice and always kept clean. They have activities during the day that are good for the residents. My grandmother also says that the food is better compared to the community she was in previously. The staff is apparently nice and helpful too. Her room has a bathroom, bedroom, and a common living area. They have yoga class and exercise classes, movies, Bingo, and there's a chapel where they can have services. The grounds are very well-maintained, and the location is close to a local hospital.

Durham Regent was good and very friendly. The apartments were lovely, clean, and neat. They had activities, like meetings, ping pong, crafts, and so on. There was a library, a chapel, and a TV room.

My dad is living in Durham Regent. It's a really good bet for the budget that we had. They were very willing to work with very small budgets and had great accommodations for that budget. The other incredible thing was that they allowed us to use their furniture, so he now has a furnished apartment. What's unique is they have nurses there that you can hire as needed but it is an independent living concept. The concept of the property is kind of like a docked cruise ship. It's a very modern building that's about four stories high, very different, and architecturally pretty. There's a glass atrium and a glass elevator that goes up into the middle of it. There's a church inside the building, a dining room that you can see from the elevator, a public space that has a library, and a baby grand piano in the living area which is nice for entertainment. They have fitness instructors, a small but nice workout area and physical therapy if you need it. It's the best bargain ever. They have three meals a day, laundry services, and housekeeping. It's absolutely phenomenal and I cannot say enough good things about it. They have a van that will take them to appointments and shops which is great. It's a little dated because the furniture is from the 1980s but it's fine. I love it for him. I've had really good experiences with the workers, but I heard different stories from my dad. My dad says the food is pretty good. They offer activities which is really nice. My dad's room started out as $2,200 or $2,400, and they gave it to us for $1,800 so the value is really good.

Durham Regent was a nice facility, but I didn’t like the staff that much since they don't have staff on-site 24/7. There was a walkway so people could get outside and individual areas for classes of OT and PT, as well.

The staff at Durham Regent has been great. They have a great activity calendar, a library, a pool table, popcorn and movie theater, and plenty of stuff to do. The menu looks great. The place is clean and well maintained with beautiful landscaping and flowers outside.

Durham Regent is a little too expensive, but it's nice, and the people seem nice. I like my cottage. It's a 1-bedroom with a bathroom, a kitchen, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator. The location is fine, and the grounds are kept up well. I don't participate in activities. I cook for myself, and I buy my groceries. I don't go out in their main building at all. The staff members have been good, friendly, and helpful. Everybody that I've seen and talked to seemed to be happy. It's really nice, clean, and quiet, and so far I've enjoyed it. I would recommend them.

This place advertise that they offer light cleaning weekly, but they don't clean, empty trash or wash linens weekly as advertise. my aunt didn't have toilet paper for 3days. Place is infested with ants and roaches and mice. Any random person can enter building from any entrance. Staff steals and is mean to residents. Sometimes residents will not get meals because they slept in. Snacks are ate up by nurse aides and visitors. This place is not with the money.

Durham Regent was a beautiful place. We wanted to get our mother in there, but what they advertise on the internet is different from the price when you go in to visit. It was a very clean and convenient living space. I liked the way it was set up. They had lots of activities for the senior citizens and a means of taking them to the doctor when they need to go. The staff was very nice. Everything was great, except they did not have the facility that we need. There was advertising that didn’t meet their price.
