We toured several community in the Wilmington area for Mom. Out of all of them, this was the most dated community. An older look to it, my Sister and I were impressed by the decor of this community. Apartments (should say rooms, not more than a room), very dated, if you are into that for the money that you would be spending, The tour was good, the nursing staff seemed friendly, the biggest issues besides the dated part. Is there is a ton of long hallway and long distances that Mom would have to walk to get to an activities room, or the dinning room or the nursing station.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
I visit there about once a week. There is a storage closet on the right side of the hallway and there is a recessive cpr manakin laying/sitting in a chair that looks like a resident that has been put in the closet and or passed out! It is very alarming and unexpected as you walk by. My Mom's room is dusty all the time with garbage underneath tabels and floor needs to be vaccuumed. Bathroom in room needs a paint job, face lift of some kind. The activities are great-happy hour-dining services.

Thank you for brining that to our attention. Shipley strives to have a neat and clean environment. I apologize that your experience was not up to that standard. I have assigned our housekeeping supervisor to audit resident rooms and bathrooms for cleanliness and have assigned our Maintenance Supervisor to observe all resident bathrooms and bedrooms in the health center to identify those in need of paint and/or repairs. Please be assured that we will correct any items that are found not to be up to high standard. I can be reached directly at Shipley Manor if I can be of further assistance to you.

The community needs a complete overhaul. Every time I visited my mom, there's always something breaking down. The ceiling was leaking, they had a huge bucket for days collecting water, and you can always find the staff on their cell phones or sitting down. I will say, if you want to hear a lot of gossip and whats going on about the building, just sit in the room for awhile. The staff is so loud and gossiping just about anything. Better than a soap opera. Rehab was nice, In and out. no complaints Food was decent
