I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My sister is in Magnolia Springs Lexington. The staff and the food are both excellent. They have an available laundry facility for my sister and have happy hour, too. The food is very good and nutritious. They have a chef. The activities are great. For what my sister is getting, the value is wonderful. The building is nice and brand new, like a five-star hotel.

Provider Response

Magnolia Springs Lexington was very nice. The people had their own individual apartments that looked nice. They had a theater and media room so people could watch a movie with comfortable seats, an exercise room, and a formal dining room where each table seats 4-5 people. They also had a cafeteria where people could play billiards. They had senior living and also assisted living available if a person needed that next level of care. The people were very nice and good. The staff was friendly and looked involved with the people's care. It was a little too busy.

Provider Response

Thank you for your compliments, particularly towards our staff. We spend a tremendous amount of time interviewing, training and coaching our staff. Many communities conduct 1 interview and make a quick decision, but we interview each person a minimum of 4 times to ensure we are thorough. This results in us employing highly capable, professional individuals that offer high-quality care and services. While the community is designed to allow for an active lifestyle, individuals are given the choice to participate, but are welcome to opt-out should they desire a more quiet day.

I loved Magnolia Springs Lexington. They're lovely. The people were wonderful. It's a nice, big, beautiful, and fantastic place. My husband was there for a week while I left to go on a trip and he enjoyed it. The staff was good to him. They were very good and knowledgeable, but they couldn't give him medication at night. They didn't have the round-the-clock nurse to give him medicine. They give the medicine to him during the daytime. It's a real pretty place. It's off of 421, near Lexington. The food was good. They take the residents places and on trips.

Provider Response

Betty - thank you for your kind words about our accommodations, service offerings and, in particular, our staff. We believe our professional, high-quality staff focus on what is most important: relationship development. Relationship development creates the ability to care at the individual level. It was our pleasure to serve him. As a clarification, we are able to assist with medications 24 hours per day. Our resident assistants can assist with the self-administration of medication. Self-administration support does not require, per Assisted Living reegilation, a nurse on site. Our Director of Resident Services (RN) is on call 24/7.

We visited Magnolia Springs, and we liked it a great deal. My aunt and uncle will be moving in January 2017. It’s a very lovely community with a lot of facilities that provide help for both memory care and assisted living. The staff was assisting us. We walked through the rooms, we had lunch, and they met separately with my aunt and uncle and evaluated as to where the best would be for them to live. The staff is continuing to work with them to make them feel like this is the best move for them. They have been very helpful. They have a theatre, cocktails, and a private dining room besides the regular dining room so if she wanted to invite family to come for dinner, there’s a private dining room. There’s a chapel, a café, an exercise room, and medical care on site. You can arrange to have your hair cut as well. They have a track outside so you could walk around. I think they have a small tea area and a patio so you could barbecue with family if you wanted to.

Provider Response

Thank you for your response and compliments - particularly those compliments pertaining to the staff. We believe our kind, compassionate and professional staff makes us a unique option for your loved ones. It is people that truly make a difference and we believe we have wonderful people - I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them each day.

Magnolia Springs was nice, it seemed very elegant, and it was more expensive. The staff was nice, but the rooms were small.

Magnolia Springs Lexington is a beautiful place. If I was ready for a place like this one, I would go in a moment because it is just gorgeous. However, my husband is beyond that stage. He has Alzheimer’s stage 3, and he needs a nursing home. It’s a lovely place. The people are just wonderful. You couldn’t ask for a lovelier place to live if you’re a senior looking for residential care like that. They spent about two hours with me; they were really nice people. The nice thing is they even have facilities where the family could stay there a night or two as a resident. It was more like a hotel.

About Magnolia Springs Lexington

Live the Life You Love At Magnolia Springs Lexington

Who says moving to a senior living community means giving up your sense of independence? Magnolia Springs embraces the fact you are your own person, different, unique, one-of-a-kind—with your own lifestyle, pursuits, and hopes for the future. Even better, we celebrate it! Each and every day. That’s just our way. The Magnolia Springs Way.

Assisted Living. Count on assistance your way.

At Magnolia Springs, residents in Assisted Living enjoy freedom, choice, and flexibility even though they need a little assistance with the activities of daily living. The Magnolia Springs Way means you call the shots. Eat when you want. Sleep in or rise early. Be social or stay put. We’re just here to empower you to do it.

Before you move in, we take the time to work with you and your family to line up the individualized services that will make your life better—from assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming and medication reminders to personal laundry service.

Memory Way. It’s memory care you can rely on.

Memory Way at Magnolia Springs embraces and celebrates everything our residents do—from dressing for the day to baking a cake or writing a letter. Using our nationally recognized Heartfelt CONNECTIONS™ Memory Care Program, we capture details about each resident’s family, friends, career, hobbies, likes, and dislikes. Then we apply that lasting legacy of details to daily activity programming—creating success stories one small victory at a time.

Inviting families to participate is also key to our program, so we host support group meetings. As a family member of a resident at Magnolia Way, you’ll gain a better understanding of the disease and how to make the most of your time visiting your loved one here.

What Makes Us Special

As a not-for-profit community, our focus is on satisfy our residents, not investors.
