Prayer at the Pole

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
January 18, 2023

The expression “rally round the flag” refers to coming together for a common purpose. And what could be a more fulfilling purpose than coming together to express and share our faith? As a faith-based senior community, many of our Magnolia Manor residents and staff love to do just that. So once we were able to congregate in person again, our Americus campus started a new tradition – prayer at the flagpole.

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
September 21, 2022

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.

Our Magnolia Manor website contains lots of useful information about all nine of our campuses.

May Events to Remember

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
June 15, 2022

Things may not be back to normal yet – whatever “normal” may turn out to be – but here at Magnolia Manor our staff and residents are so happy to see the return of in-person events. Virtual get-togethers simply do not rise to the occasion like the opportunity to see, hear, and hug one another up close and personally.

So, you can be sure we are doing all we can to reconvene for activities small and large. Many of these activities center around our own campuses and residents, of course. But some also serve to reinforce the close relationships we enjoy with our surrounding communities. Here are two recent examples.
