The lady at the front desk was very helpful with the new sign in application screen to the building. The screen could be more user friendly. The written instructions bullet points above the screen were helpful to sign in. The screen would have been better if these instructions were displayed on screen in such away that all I had to do is press NEXT instead of scrolling down to the next screen. The application has a lot of potential but it needs more enhancements.

I had my father moved into this facility based on the excellent reviews and the assurances of the Head Administrator. It turned out to be one of my biggest regrets.He was there for rehabilitation following a PT injury. When he got to the Shipley Manor he had been showing improvement, and was able to walk short distances with his walker. While at the facility the therapy that he received was not at all productive, and his physical strength and abilities deteriorated. Eventually he was notified that they were releasing him as only “wheelchair able.”He often received food trays with items that he couldn’t eat, because of his diabetes. The staff was well aware of his dietary restrictions, but they did nothing to abide by them when preparing his meal trays. At first we thought that they must be giving him sugar free foods, but found out that this was not the case.There were also issues with Dad’s medications. This included one time when the syringe broke during an insulin injection, and there were concerns about the amount of medication that he actually received.The room had a nonfunctional a/c unit and a toilet that didn’t flush. This unhealthy environment was reported many times to no avail. Nothing was ever done to rectify the problems.Dad ended up with an infection due to his diabetes and what appeared to be the improper fitting of his elastic stocking. He was put on antibiotics, but the infection developed into sepsis and he subsequently had to be rushed to the hospital in respiratory distress.My dad passed away in the hospital. I’ll always have misgivings about the care that he received at Shipley Manor during the last months of his life.

This placed treated my grandfather great during a difficult time for my family. He was there for 3 months in rehab after breaking his hip. They took care of him and listened to the wishes of his family. They helped with so much and we all are very thankful of this. Thanks to a great rehab team, medical team and positive environment we were able to bring him back home safely.

With enough friends to socialize & plenty of intellectual & physical activities to choose from, Shipley Manor is more than a senior living community. It is what my mother calls "home". My children have so much fun every time they visit her & their big parties are just amazing. Resident's care, safety & comfort are priority number one.

My Aunt moved into Shipley Manor for Rehabilitation when she was having trouble walking suddenly. She had a nice size private room that was bright. She was pleased with all the employees who cared for her and the good meals. Everyone was kind to her and extra helpful. The Rehabilitation team was very skilled and my Aunt excelled. She is coming back home after 2 months of care and she is using a walker.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Shipley Manor is. From the skilled rehab to the Assisted Living Unit (ALU), the staff have been outstanding. My aunt is currently a resident there and the journey that took us to the realization that she could no longer be in her own home safely, by herself, was a difficult, but necessary, one to make. As most of us have difficulty with change, my Aunt and I researched and spent much time visiting the different facilities in the North Wilmington area. We put together comparison charts and everything. My Aunt was already in Shipley Manor recovering from a bad fall in July 2018 and realizing that her Parkinson's symptoms had progressed pretty rapidly, assisted living was now the option for her. From Kathy, Muriel, and Kristen, to the nurses, CNAs, and Dr. MaGhee, to the wonderfully attentive staff of the ALU (Setty, Edward, and Bernard and the ALU CNAs), I couldn't ask for a better group of people! They are always available to answer the plethora of questions that my Aunt and I had/have, never making us feel like we were annoying them. ANY and I mean ANY changes to my Aunt's conditions or medications, there is always a call to me...and the fact that they start the call with..."your aunt is fine...we are just calling to let you know..." means a lot. My Aunt is happy again. She's around people and she's smiling again. I can see parts of her old self that I hadn't seen in years start to emerge again. She's active and participating in the daily events that the Activity's Director has scheduled for the residents. She gets to go on trips with the groups and she even knew a few residents from her time at the beach, so she is gaining friendships again. This truly is a wonderful place and economically affordable as well; my Aunt's apartment gets cleaned daily (vacuumed, bathroom, kitchen floor, dusting, bed made, everything!! and they do a tremendous job! The staff at Shipley Manor are becoming family as well. They made the transition from home to assisted living an easy one for my Aunt and our family. The peace of mind of knowing my Aunt is there and being well taken care of is priceless. I recommend Shipley Manor for your loved ones if you ever have to come to this crossroad in you/your loved one's life.
