Shipley Manor has some of the most kind, caring, compassionate and experienced staff that I have ever met at a facility. From the moment you walk in the door and meet Amy, you are welcomed by her beautiful smile and pleasant personality. Kathy Scott is the best of the best. She is knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, compassionate and respectful. Susan Comegys is experienced, compassionate and dedicated to her residents. Everyone is treated like family.

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 rightttt 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! ?

As the owner of a home care company, I often have the opportunity to refer our clients to a community when they no longer feel that they can remain at home. I confidently recommend that they visit Shipley Manor. I know that they will be warmly welcomed by Kathy Scott, they can take a tour of the community and if their schedule allows they can enjoy a lunch prepared by their great chef and staff. I highly recommend that any individual considering a move to a community place Shipley Manor on their priority list.

My father went here for short term rehab after a month hospital stay in 2011. The neglect was reprehensible. The staff were usually socializing in the filthy hallways. The place smelled of urine and feces. My father got C-diff in there and went downhill in less than a week They would bring his food tray in and not bother to sit him up to even give him water. There were no doctors on staff..maybe come in once or twice a week and there was usually only one RN. I came in one evening he was unconscious and breathing badly. I ran to get a "nurse". One of the aides slowly meandered down the hallway and then took his blood pressure. She turned to leave the room and I asked her what it was. She mumbled something and I thought she said 70 over 40. I asked her to repeat it and thats what it was. I told her I was calling 911 and she said, "no, I have to call the doctor." I told her I wasn't going to wait for a doctor to come in there..this was an emergency. When the paramedics got there they told me he would have died that night. He had to get 6 bags of fluid on the ride to Christiana. They almost killed my father. I don't know if it's changed since then, but I wouldn't send a rat there unless I checked the out thoughly.
