With her nursing background, Danielle Brown brings a special understanding to her new role as Sales Coordinator at Magnolia Manor in Macon. She works with prospective residents and families who are interested in learning about either independent or assisted living, and in her words, “I love it!”
People describe Magnolia Manor in Macon as a “hidden delight.” That may seem somewhat odd, considering we’re centrally located – near downtown and near Riverside, too. We like to think we’re close to all the action – a central part of Macon’s vibrant lifestyle, nestled in peaceful surroundings.
Let’s hear it for assisted living!
Assisted living communities all around the country have given a new lease on life to thousands (maybe millions) of mostly-independent seniors who simply need a little help with certain things. The chance to maintain maximum independence in a safe, secure, and uplifting setting is a game-changer for seniors who, in past generations, would have few options but a nursing home.

Senior living communities aren’t just for singles! Couples choose to move to Magnolia Manor while they are still healthy and active so they can focus on doing the things they love to do together in retirement. You might say that resident couples here at Magnolia Manor are the personification of independence.
Whether you’re actively independent or not quite as active as you once were, no one wants to sit around all day doing nothing. We all need stimulation to keep our minds, bodies, and spirits strong. Senior living fosters a sense of community and – here at Magnolia Manor, at least – provides a wealth of opportunities to exercise and socialize.
Welcome to Magnolia Manor in Columbus, Georgia! As our website says, we’re on “the banks of the Chattahoochee, where the Piedmont meets the Plain.” Sounds inviting, doesn’t it? And it is. While some of the nine Magnolia Manor campuses are quite large, we are a small community here in Columbus. Just 44 assisted living apartments plus two skilled nursing wings.
So, what is it like living and working here?
At Magnolia Manor, we are blessed to have so many truly wonderful staff members. They are as much a part of our family as our residents. Usually, the only people who get to know them are their colleagues and the residents they serve within a particular Magnolia Manor campus. So when we have an opportunity to highlight a staff member here in our blog so everyone can meet them, we always say yes.
Meet Bridget Smith
If you reside in Assisted Living at Magnolia Manor Columbus, you already know Bridget. She’s the dietary maven – the woman responsible for ensuring residents get three scrumptious, nutritious meals each day.
One of the best things about senior living communities is that you get to meet so many new and interesting people. Whether you move to Magnolia Manor as a resident, or you work here, or even if you’re a visiting family member or friend, you immediately realize you are surrounded by unique life stories.
And who doesn’t love a good story? That’s why we always highlight residents in our quarterly Manor Living magazine. And from time to time, we like to introduce residents to our blog readers as well. So let’s meet Lucile Garrison.
Our Magnolia Manor website contains lots of useful information about all nine of our campuses. But while living accommodations, care services, and amenities are all important factors in choosing a senior living community, prospective residents mostly want to know: what is it really like to live there? We try to portray that flavor as best we can, especially, in our quarterly Manor Living Magazine.
Nobody is happier to live at Magnolia Manor than Jackie Mullis, and to say her enthusiasm is contagious would be an understatement.
Although she was born in Florida, Jackie has lived in Moultrie since 1949. As the years passed, her family became concerned about Jackie living on her own. She had friends at Magnolia Manor and had visited them on occasion, so she went back with the idea of possibly moving there. She fell in love with a two-bedroom apartment and told herself, “I have to go home and count my money.” She was able to move right in within a month.
