    My parents began their Ephrata Manor Experience in the Apartments in 2008. Both of them recently passed away, in the Skilled Nursing unit. My mother went from the Apartments to Nursing in 2013. Dad moved to Personal Care (Assisted Living) at that time as well. I cannot say enough good things about this Community, and that is what it is. Our family has had experience in all 3 sections of Ephrata Manor and the care has been extraordinary. The Apartments are lovely, and offer independent living and a sense of community with others who are able to care for their own needs. They are nicely appointed, have easily accessible parking, offer different floor plans, and are reasonably priced with no high "fees" for entry. They do some minimal monitoring on well being through daily "checks" that residents are up and about. They allow folks to continue to drive if they are able, but also provide shuttles to shopping, church, etc. In Personal Care, they provide "studio apartments with the bed in the main room and a private bathroom. There are small kitchenettes with small fridges, but most eat their 3 meals per day (plus snacks) in a lovely dining room. The food there is quite good and I often enjoyed it while visiting. Food passes are available for guests for a nominal fee. There are lots of activities for residents as well. The level of care can be raised as the resident requires it, but they are also able to do their own care, laundry etc. as long as their ability permits. In Nursing the care is VERY good. Of course my dad was able to monitor my mom's care daily, but even he (who was very strict) had few complaints. Communications were usually very strong regarding changes in her health or other needs. She was always content and her caregivers were very loving and did their best to keep her involved in activities to the extent her health permitted. I also saw them give quality care to others. During the spring/summer of 2013 I was there on a daily basis for many weeks. In summary, I give Ephrata Manor my highest recommendation. Although I live in a different part of the country now, if in the future I need care in the area, I would consider moving there......

    Residents are mostly taken care off. Often when the staff members are not busy you see and hear them gossiping to each other or standing around when they Should be spending time talking to the residents..some of them don't have no family. Staff could be more caring.

    This is a wonderful retirement center with all levels of care. Low entry fee but once you are in, they will take care of you for life. Move in early to make friends with others.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
