After my grandfather Charles Wallace died over two decades ago now, my amazing grandmother, the wonderful (and now angel) retired IV emergency room nurse Doris Wallace realized she could not stay in their very big -but also very old and hard to maintain/clean- North Wilmington house where she grew up. She moved to Shipley Manor (in independent living- as she could do everything including drive- and fast, too - up until a few months before she finally passed) and I have to admit, as my first real encounter with a “nursing home” as we all called it back then, after hearing all the horror stories and how they’d say it’s “the beginning of the end” ...but especially how much she LOVED my grandfather and was really missing him, grieving, alone... our entire family thought the worst. WOW WERE WE SO PLEASANTLY SURPRISED & BLESSED TO THIS DAY AT HOW WRONG WE WERE!! My grandmother didn’t just live, she THRIVED there, and some days was even BUSIER THAN I WAS! I remember the day I called her asking for the 2nd time that week if I could swing by (as I worked right NEXT DOOR AT WSTW at the time) and she said something like “well not now, __ is over and we’re getting ready to bartend this dance event in the main dining room tonight... and tomorrow I play cards with _ & _ from 1-4... hmm MAYBE Thursday... what is you’re schedule like from 5-7pm?” - I cried tears of joy as I laughed at the fact that my eighty-some year old grandmother- (who before moving to Shipley didn’t have a huge circle of friends, as her best friend was her husband - then her kids & family of course) was BUSIER THAN I WAS!!! We NEVER EXPECTED THIS!! I remember especially always hearing about her favorite person there: Kathy Scott, the sales and marketing director who has a heart of GOLD. Kathy was always close by and always knew more than I did about what she was up to, and was with her up until she passed away peacefully and ready- still in independent living- only a couple years ago! I’m so grateful for this and for her- so thank you, Kathy Scott. THANK YOU SHIPLEY MANOR!

I’d like to commend the following team members for the outstanding care provided to my mother: Rakeisha Brown, Gloria Trejo, Fannie Bigger, Dominique Boardley, Colleen Jones, Muriel Reznick, and James Oduor. They are very compassionate, attentive, and caring. I can’t thank them enough! They deserve recognition!

As someone fairly new to the whole senior living/rehab process I have quickly come to recognize what quality care means. My mother had a two and a half month stay at Shipley Manor after a hospital visit. She was treated like gold but more importantly the level of care was tremendous. Receiving 3 therapy sessions daily to work on improving her strength, speech, and ability to process her environment. I saw her regain strength, she was happy, and with the tight schedule she was always interacting with the staff. I would recommend this facility for anyone needing extra assistance for an elderly person. A very professional and caring environment you can trust will manage their care appropriately!

My father, a resident of Shipley Manor, suffered a stroke back in March. The staff was so helpful in his recovery. I’m impressed with the service provided by Susan Comegys, Kathy Scott, and therapists, Natalie, Jennifer, and Susan. They’ve been so supportive, helpful, and caring.

Collen Jones has been so helpful, supportive, and accommodating. She went out of her way to set up my mother's appointment for her blood transfusion. She's truly a gem! I'm so appreciative of everything she's done for my mother.

Shipley was my 1st choice. I have lived here for one year. Glad I moved in!
