SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) December 03, 2018
Regency Place, a boutique senior living community, recently housed fellow senior living residents displaced by the “Camp Fire” taking place in Northern California. With the help of many organizations and companies in the community, Regency Place was able to make room for seventeen residents while the fires blazed in their hometown.
On Saturday, November 10 Regency Place was alerted that Pacifica Senior Living in Oroville. CA was in need of evacuating its residents to a safe place. The staff at Regency Place immediately pulled together along with many local individuals, companies and organizations to make the move possible in a short period of time. Assistance came from AlphaOne Ambulance, Suncrest Hospice, Absolute Compassion, Fairoaks Estates, Green Valley Hospice and Right at Home Sacramento, all of whom were all instrumental in organizing supplies, donating items, and coordinating the evacuee move-in on Saturday.
“It was our pleasure to open our home to those in need. Everyone was so touched by this terrible fire that we would do anything we could to make a difference, and this was a significant achievement,” said Andrew Lee, executive director of Regency Place. “We would do it again in a heartbeat.”
In all seventeen assisted living residents from Pacifica made Regency Place their home for two days until they could safely return on Monday. While at Regency Place, the residents enjoyed all the pleasures of home in a safe, secure community. On Sunday all five of the men evacuated, who were veterans, were honored along with Regency Place’s veterans at a ceremony taking place at the community.
As one of the residents from Pacifica Senior Living noted, “this is the perfect haven in the fire.”
