The Manor Village Lifestyle Experience®
Our team of expert professionals provide our residents with expert services and benefits that make their lives here as rich, fulfilling and healthy as possible.
We ensure that our residents don’t just live at a Manor Village; they enjoy an outstanding lifestyle.
Executive Chef & Culinary Team
Elegant, freshly prepared, nutritious meals
At The Manor Village, we believe that every meal served to our senior residents should be memorable - for all the right reasons! Our residents enjoy freshly prepared, wellbalanced meals in our elegant and spacious dining rooms. They can even invite family and friends to dine with them.
So often, retirement home food is bland, disappointing and not always suitable for aging digestive systems. At The Manor Village, we have created a unique recipe book of dishes and cuisine that have been developed by experts especially for senior digestive systems.
Health & Wellness Team
Experienced Professionals dedicated to Health and Wellness
The Manor Village Wellness Directors and Coordinators promote a lifestyle model based on wellness to help our residents remain strong, healthy and independent for as long as possible. They work in close collaboration with them and their family physician in order to ensure the best care possible.
Our team will meet with each new resident for a personalized Health and Wellness Planning Session and is available to them throughout their stay.
Relaxing, Theraputic Senior Specific Massage
Massage therapy is an important part of the comprehensive health and wellness services that keep our residents, healthy, mobile and living independent lives for longer.
After a full medical history is taken, our gentle, seniorapproved massage services are available in-house or in the privacy of a resident’s suite, so they can enjoy the benefits without any need to travel to a clinic.
Older people need the same amount of sleep as younger people
Regrettably, many seniors believe the myth that older people need less sleep so they attribute their problems sleeping as just a “normal” part of the aging process. At The Manor Village Life Centers, we understand the importance of sleep and treating sleep disorders. Sleep is vital to everyone’s health, well being and mental agility, whatever a person’s age. Left untreated, sleep disorders and insomnia can affect all aspects of life; mental, physical and social.
It is Crucial to Understand the Medications
Proper medication management is critical to overall health. It’s common to find that seniors are taking multiple prescription, as well as over the counter medications. Our specialist geriatric pharmacists are much valued members of the Manor Villages’ team. Their expertise and in-depth knowledge help our residents receive the maximum benefit from their medications with the minimum amount of side effects possible. One way they do this is by identifying possible contradictions in the often complex mix of medications some residents are prescribed.
Podiatrists and Orthotic Specialists
Expert Foot Care for Seniors
Healthy feet are important to a long healthy life. As we age, foot problems can put our health and independence at risk.
Our team works hard to keep our residents’ feet healthy, and also keep mobile for longer. Our podiatrist comes to them, so they don’t have to travel to a foot clinic or miss out on any activities. In a dedicated treatment room at their Manor Village, the podiatrist can help with basic foot care, help with common problems such as bunions and corns and nail and skin care. They also offers screenings to detect and treat foot problems such as plantar fasciitis.
Regular Exercise Provides Health Benefits
Exercise classes, specifically designed for seniors, play a vital role in preserving fitness, mobility and independence. We offer both group classes and specific one-on-one instruction.
A study by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society examined exercise in the elderly and found that training led to improvements in functional reach and balance and reduced the participants’ fear of falling by gaining the stability necessary to help keepthem on their feet and injury-free.
Activity and Lifestyle Team
Memorable Senior-Appropriate Events and Activities
At The Manor Village we firmly believe in not just ‘Adding Years to Your Life but Life to Your Years’. No one does that better than our outstanding Activity and Lifestyle Team.
Whether it’s an outing or an afternoon tea, our experienced and innovative team strives to ensure that all Manor Village activities are engaging and appropriate for our senior residents, as well as their friends and family members. Whatever your interests might be, there will be something on our monthly activity calendar to catch the eye.
