Great Activities

I would recommed Magnolias of Lancaster. They are great with patients with dementia. They have an activities coordinator and she plans a lot of activities, they include both inside and outside activities for the residents. When I visit my loved one he is always clean. They call me with updates and when I call they are very responsive. If I show up unexpected they go and get him for him to see me through the window. I usually go between lunch and dinner time.

Magnolias Of Lancaster

When we visit the common areas, the floors do seem a little dirty. The staff is all very friendly and helpful. They have really gone above and beyond to help us and our loved one. They are very caring people here. My loved one seems very content and the staff has really catered to her preferences and needs, which adds a great personal touch. They have a lot of activities for the residents to engage in, but they will also put on events that the families can join in on as well.

Had a cozy atmosphere

I took a brief tour here. The facility was a little on the small side, but it was nice. There were more residents than we would’ve liked, however, so we wound up not moving her in. However, the Director was very nice and I really liked him. The inside of the building was bright and cheery and the cleanliness seemed fine. They offered more of a home cooking style, nothing fancy, and they seemed to keep things simple. It had a very cozy atmosphere so it didn’t feel so much like an institution, it just wasn’t the right fit for my Mom’s needs.

First Choice Magnolias of Lancaster

I live in Malvern, 48 miles away. I go to visit my wife every day. My three goals for her are Healthy, Safe and Happy. She is all of these thanks to the most caring group of people I have ever seen. I found Magnolias quite by accident, and made an unannounced visit. My impression at first led me to believe it was exactly what I was looking for. A home-like setting; there is no institutional feel anywhere, small in size, sincere interest in each residents care and wellbeing, staffed by loving people who have a vocation, not a job. My initial feelings have turned out to be reality. I have options for her care a mile from my home, but won't move her.

Good, but Some Small Issues

I toured Magnolias while looking for living options for my husband. It seemed like a good community, and one that I could have chosen. The staff appeared very involved and patient. There were two factors in my decision to choose another location: The first was location--a bit farther to drive than our first choice. The second factor was access to enter the community. The outside door is locked and response to the door buzzer was slow--may not be a continual problem, but the first impression was a bit troublesome.

Very Caring and Homey with a Wonderful Dog

This is a good community for my mother. The staff is caring and attentive. They are dedicated to respecting the individuality and dignity of each resident. Her room is large with a beautiful view. My mother greatly enjoys the 2 secure outdoor areas that are well maintained. We like that they have a dog that lives in the community for all the residents to love and enjoy. We would recommend this community for the home-like feel and long-term staff. Family members are always made to feel a welcomed part of the community.

Magnolias and my Mother's stay there

I am not sure where to begin. My Mother is now in Lancaster General Hospital, because she fell at Magnolias on Tuesday, the 1st of March 2016. She has bleeding in the brain and we are deciding if we should put a feeding tube in for her. No one from staff had looked in on her for three hours. No one from the staff called the children when she fell for two times .They wanted her to eat breakfast before calling the ambulance. They were not going to call the ambulance, but Thank God, my sister-in-law was there and made the call. The laundry was not done at all for the week she was there. She had no bath. They were suppose to order a bed rail and a fall mat and that never happened. They told us that on Monday a psychologist was going to come to evaluate Mom. That never happened. They made us stay away for four days. That was precious time we could have spent with our Mother and they would not let us. Now my Mother needs skilled care and not sure how long we have with her. She cannot swallow at this point. Does anyone at assistant living places care. I spoke with Heather for an hour. She never apologized or would admit that these things were not right. She wrote some things down and said she would check into it. If she calls me back with what she has found, I will be very surprised. We could get a lawyer, but what good would that do, Mom is not good and I feel Magnolias has failed us. I really would like all the money back that we had given for Mom's short stay. Some of the people were very friendly and we appreciated them. You need more staff to be able to run a more safe and caring environment for dementia patients. Heather made it sound so wonderful and great when we met with her for the first time, but we will never recommend your facility to anyone we know. I am sorry for this negative note, but my Mother is in very bad condition because of the negligence shown to her and it makes me sick to my stomach.

Our experience is over.

Started out good. Medications were over welming. Constantly given behaverial meds. We understood some of the need but not sure of the Doctor and how they monitored the resident. Change of management and short staffing issues. Not able to care with end of life. They need more staffing and Registered Nursing in house daily. We needed closure no contact from management or headquarters after letters were written. This was poor from the facility. Management within the Lancaster facility was all different including staff.

Nice looking place!

I toured this community when I was looking into memory care options for a loved one. Overall I thought this seemed like a very nice place. I liked that although it is all memory care residents, they organize the residents by level of care, so that the higher functioning residents are able to socialize. We ended up choosing another community, but Magnolias of Lancaster is certainly worth a look if you are looking for care options in the area!

Very nice place!

We're very pleased with Magnolias of Lancaster. They really seem to have a commitment to treating the whole person here, not just their physical symptoms, they make sure their residents improve mentally and emotionally as well. It has really relieved a lot of my own anxiety knowing that my loved one is somewhere with such caring and competent caregivers. They even do a great job with the food! The meals are nutritious and balanced, and they have a good variety of things available. They're also willing to try and cater to the individual tastes of the residents.

Excellent Memory Care Home

I rate Magnolias of Lancaster an overall A. The administration and staff is very attentive to my Mother's needs and answer my questions very quickly 24/7. The facilities are excellent with natural lighting and a sunroom with a patio. We did have a problem with the room, but this was addressed by the administration and fixed by the maintenance person.

Really Low Functioning

Really low functioning Alzheimer's unit. That one seemed more on the lines of basically where people have reached a point beyond cognizance. If they had been pets, their owners would have put them down. This was the last one we visited before we moved my mom, and of course her memory is bad, so she thought that she was moving here. She got completely stressed out and upset.
