Dee - I toured this community
Not an assisted living for Mom

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.

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 taking the time to share your recent observations. I am Kris Perrone, Executive Director of Shipley Manor. After reading your review, I immediately ordered the proper storage container for the CPR mannequin. I do understand how that observation was alarming to you. 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. Kristen Binz-Perrone, Executive Director

Cant judge a book

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

Thank you for bringing your observations to our attention. I apologize that your experience was not up to our usual higher standards. I immediately met with Shipley’s leadership management team to review our cell phone policy and the expectation of business-like conduct with their team. The issue of the leak that you spoke of has been rectified. I have assigned our Environmental Services Director to audit areas throughout our community to ensure that our equipment is properly functioning , in addition to our routine preventative maintenance checks. I can be reached at Shipley Manor if I can be of further assistance to you - Kris Perrone, Executive Director of Shipley Manor
