The Malone Family, Magnolia Manor Assisted Living
I write this on behalf of my parents who have been residents of The Orchard since 2012. I personally have been volunteering there since 2008. During that time, I saw firsthand the care and concern that is extended to each resident by the entire staff. When it came time to transition my parents from their personal residence to a community that provided the assistance they required, there was no question where I would recommend.
Over the course of their residence at The Orchard, my parents have experienced challenges and a few significant issues. Each time the medical staff, administration, dietary staff and housekeeping developed solutions tailored to their individual needs and made their lives more comfortable.
On three occasions we have utilized the expertise of the physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy programs. With every course of therapy, the staff has helped my mother regain a level of function that we did not expect.
In all situations, including time spent in Dogwood Manor skilled nursing, they received a variety of daily activities. They particularly enjoy their bingo games, musical events, spiritual programs and visits from the therapy dogs.
The Orchard not only cares for my parents’ health but considers their mental and emotional well-being. The beauty shop has certainly contributed to the improving their self-esteem and overall outlook on life. Let’s face it - we all feel better when we look good!
Each family with a loved one at The Orchard should realize they need to continue to share responsibility for his or her well-being. No community can replace the support of family members. However, The Orchard goes above and beyond to provide excellent care and a home-like environment for all its residents.
