Attentive staff

We chose Foulk Manor South because my mom was familiar with the facility due to her line of work. The room sizes were great and adequate for what his needs were. The food did seem to be good, there were no complaints. I think the daytime staff did a really good job with caring for my dad and they were very attentive but there were some difficulties with overnight staff. Overall, we had a good experience here.

Great assisted living, memory living community

Toured this community over the Christmas holidays in 2019, we really liked this community. It had a assisted living, memory living and a step down skilled nursing available within this community. Which is great, cause if Mom needed a higher level of care, it would be available to her without moving out of the community. The people were friendly and seemed happy. There was several activities going on at the same time in different locations within the community, which was nice to see. The elderly looked well dressed and clean, no smells and the staff was friendly as we toured the community. This would be our first choice in a community for Mom, now we just have to convince her that this is a place safer than her home.

Good Value For Delaware

I have been very impressed with leadership at Foulk Manor South.My dad thinks the food is very good. We looked at three places. Foulk Manor South was good for our price, it is also a good location for my mother who is still in their home.

This Community was very nice It was not a good fit for our family. We found out that the State of Delaware does not offer Medicaid after spend down in an assisted living setting and we do not want to move out loved one twice. However, the people Were so amazing and the residence looked happy. They recommended the Somerford house in Newark which was exactly What we were looking for,but out of our price point.

Not my parent

My dad did not get the attention he deserved. Bathroom in his room looked like it was once a small closet. Staff liked to all chat at nurses station.

I met with [Removed] regarding the different options available for my wife's parents for their care. It took only a short time, but in that time I was totally convinced that we were making the right decision for their care..[Removed] made a difficult time very easy for us. My wife and I thank her and everyone we met along the way at Foulk Manor South. The attitude of the staff always stems from the leadership and it is obvious from the moment you step in. This is one well run, thoughtful and happy place. [Removed]

Things are going ok

The food is good and the community is kept clean. The staff are ok, however sometimes it is hard to reach someone by phone. The administrator is great and worked with us. I feel comfortable going to the administrators with any concerns I may have. We were able to decorate mom's room to her liking. They are working with hospice and so far it has been an ok experience.
