I am a friend or relative of a resident
My father is at the Manor at Market Square. There is a lot to do, but I think there is more to do for women because they have knitting club and card clubs, and it is a happy place. The services are good. The food is not gourmet, but it is better than what see in other places, and it is adequate. He gets a lot, and he gets as much as he needs. I have not meet one that I did not like yet because they are all very friendly. They treat the people to events. There is I nurse that takes care of anything that we need whether it be getting a pill or having a doctor look at him. They have services that will do my dad's toes. They have a barber. They have a beautician.
One of the things that make us pick that place is the fact that they do not have to pay the shuttle to go to any doctor's appointment. It is a big plus because my dad has to go in the beginning for quite a few doctors' appointment in numerous times when we cannot be there to take him. They do it, and they do not charge anymore. Another good thing is that they do allow small pets. If he will go from independent to assisted living or hospice, he can have his pet with him. In other places, once you leave one area, you have to move on and go into another part of the building. At the Manor, they do not do that. You do not have to move. They will come to you. I think that all these things are important, and I think it is amazing that they have these good services. Some people may be afraid because Reading does have a high crime rate, but I feel it is very safe. I am not afraid at all for my dad to be there.
They have a buddy system too. My dad meets a couple of people that eat together. They call each other up if they are not there at a meal, wondering where they are. It is a friendly place, and I think even though my dad does not want to be there, I see him laughing, and just being happy there. For the costs and for the services, I will rate it a five.

I visited this facility
Manor at Market Square was very nice, and they were very helpful. We didn’t like the location; my mother didn’t like being down in the city. There was no place for her to walk because it was on a busy street. The rooms were nice. The dining room setup was nice, but I didn’t care for the lobby though. They had Bingo, arts and crafts, and a library.
Thank you for visiting Manor at Market Square!
