Posted by Magnolia Manor on
June 30, 2021

Even though it seems as if life completely shut down for nearly all of 2020 because of the pandemic, the truth is that life goes on, no matter what. Sometimes that includes moving from one home to another. So, with all the restrictions surrounding COVID-19, what was it like to move to a senior living community during this time?

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
May 01, 2021

Have you decided on a Mother’s Day gift yet? Mom’s official day of recognition is almost here, you know! Thanks to a year of pandemic seclusion (or something akin to that), your mother is now up to her elbows in puzzles, videos, and cozy socks. So this Mother’s Day, it’s time to get creative with a gift that’s more personalized. You can pick something for pampering or for pleasure, but that doesn’t mean your gift can’t be practical as well.

Easy & Useful Apps For Seniors

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
March 29, 2021

We all know there is no shortage of apps to communicate with others and play games. Where would we have been these past many months during the pandemic without these essential digital tools? But apps can help seniors in so many other ways.

As we age, most of us worry about losing our memory or cognitive abilities. In addition, Senior Living notes that:

  • Many seniors have vision issues, and a third of those over 65 especially have trouble reading small print
  • About half of prescriptions are not taken as directed
  • Some seniors don’t fill prescriptions in the first place due to high cost

Sound familiar? No worries. There are apps that can help solve all these problems and more. Apps can help seniors monitor and maintain good health, simplify daily life, and learn new things. And a lot of them are easy to use and even free. Here is a smattering of apps you might consider for yourself or for an older friend or loved one.

Have You Read the Latest Manor Living?

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
March 15, 2021

Manor Living magazine. Informative? Yes. Interesting? Oh, yeah! In fact, you might say it’s a real page-turner. That’s because Magnolia Manor is all about living life, in the best, most carefree way you can. Even if you live or work at one of our Magnolia Manor campuses, it’s hard to keep up with all the action because our communities are such busy places.

With nine campuses throughout Georgia, there is nine times the action. So we publish Manor Living magazine quarterly to help our residents, staff, families, and friends stay tuned to what’s new. Reading the magazine is also a great way for potential new residents to get a feel for our way of life.

Let’s turn a few pages in the latest issue to get a glimpse of what’s happening around Magnolia Manor.

Top 7 Travel Documentaries for Seniors

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
January 19, 2021

Many seniors have had a chance to travel the world over, or at least visit a few intriguing destinations across the country or in a foreign land. But not everyone has been so fortunate. And these days, travel is off the menu, especially for seniors who are at higher risk of COVID-19 or who may be in less-than-travel-worthy health.

The next best thing? Travel documentaries! Richly rewarding, absorbing, entertaining, and educational. Mild to wild, there is something (or should we say, someplace) for everyone. And so many to choose from! The world of travel documentaries is as vast as the world itself.
