 My name is Christy Cooke and I am the Executive Director here at Plantation Manor.

Christy Cook: We have a personal care home. So, that means we offer easy living. We also have our Memory Care Unit.

Dale Davidson: And tell me more about the Memory Care unit.

About Us

Nestled on an in-town campus and located within two blocks of Archbold Memorial Hospital and numerous physicians’ offices, Plantation Manor has been designed as a Community Center to serve area residents. Our community is built around the historic Wahl house, a home of sentimental value to the citizens of Thomasville. We have worked to preserve the grace of the original home, giving residents a taste of the romance and elegance of the Old South. Residents may select from various suite options and still enjoy the activities, lounge, library, main dining and private dining rooms. The beautifully landscaped grounds feature a large patio area for community gatherings.

Our mission at Plantation Manor is to offer our residents a community where they can enjoy the life they have earned and deserve with privacy, independence and convenience of care. What makes Plantation Manor especially appealing is its emphasis on each resident’s individual “wellness”. It comes by design – by our professional staff’s orientation and training in wellness, through the comfortable residential setting, and by the welcome given to the family support – all contribute to an environment that encourages each resident to maximize their independence and live life to the fullest.

At Plantation Manor, we believe an individual’s ability to make his/her own choices is the cornerstone of one’s independence, well-being and happiness.

Alzheimer/Dementia Care

Our Gracious Living environment (Thomasville’s first) was specifically designed for residents with memory impairment. This separate, secured wing features individualized care in a beautiful, protected area. Caregivers are trained in understanding the very special needs of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Our focus is to provide the utmost care for our Alzheimer/dementia residents. This includes being familiar with each resident’s physical and social history, likes/dislikes, favorite foods and preferred activities. We encourage these special members of our family to as independent as possible—never compromising their dignity. Most importantly, we make them feel at-home, secure, comfortable and loved.
