Manor Park Households
We have two Households at Manor Park: The Scharbauer Cottage and The Cowden Cottage. Each household is approximately 15,000 square feet and can house up to 22 residents. All of the rooms in the Households are private rooms with private European style bathrooms. Each house has a large living area, dining room and home-style kitchen.
At the Households we use a resident-centered approach that allows the residents to have control of their lives just like they had when they lived at home. This concept encourages the residents to make choices such as a when they wake up and when and what they want to eat. We feel it’s very important to let them have a voice and say-so in their care.
Privacy and property boundaries are respected by everyone. For example, family and guests must ring the doorbell and be greeted before entering the home.
Along with the Mabee Center, the Households are the highest level of care at Manor Park. At the households we provide 24-hour nursing care, meals, laundry, housekeeping, and assistance with all activities of daily living. All of these services are included in the daily rate. Medications and any supplies your loved one may need are extra.
The rooms come fully furnished with a hospital bed, dresser, night stand, over-the-bed table and flat screen television. You are welcome to bring your own furniture if you’d like, but we do ask that the hospital bed stay in the room for safety purposes. You may also bring in your own bedding, decorations and pictures to give the room a personal touch.
The Households provide a caring and comfortable home environment where the residents can continue to enjoy life while receiving quality care. If you are interested in learning more or would like a tour, please call 432-699-3439.
