The spiritual needs of the residents are important to us. We have a beautiful, tranquil chapel and a supportive pastoral care staff available to residents and family members.
Qualified social workers are on staff to ease the transition for both residents and families to the care facility. Our social workers focus on assisting the resident to reach their highest level of independent living possible. Discharge planning starts on day one for our Rehab to Home program. They connect the resident and families with needed resources. They are educated in Medicare, Medicaid and other insurances. Social Services assist with setting up services for home health, hospice or ordering equipment, which will be needed at home.
St. Mary's Manor believes staying active and having fun are important parts of being healthy. The activity staff provides a wide range of activities that are tailored to individual residents and group interests. Our exercise programs enhance our resident's physical and mental health. The Wii games make it fun also! As a part of our intergenerational program, preschool and school age children frequently visit the Manor to share in resident activities.
Live entertainment brings a variety of music to the facility. There are organized activities such as spa time and art related groups.
Research over the years has shown there is a strong correlation between pet ownership and improved health. St. Mary's Manor embraces this philosophy by sharing our home with Baxter the cat, JoJo the cockatiel and Oreo the dutch rabbit. A golden retriever, Libby spends three days a week at the facility as well as other dogs who visit weekly.
