The Village at Morrisons Cove is a nonprofit senior care community located toward the south end of Martinsburg, Pennsylvania. As a midsize community with varying levels of care, including assisted living and nursing, there's no need to relocate if a resident needs a higher level of care in the future. Personal care services include medication reminders and supervision, assistance with daily tasks such as grooming and mobility, and general wellness support. Residents can enjoy beautiful outdoor spaces, including a secure courtyard with landscaped gardens, hummingbird feeders and chairs, or they can relax in the living room with a snack. Caregivers are on duty 24/7, and nurses manage various rehab and therapy programs on-site in the fitness and wellness centers. Assistance with doctor and hospital visits is also provided.
What Residents are Saying:
The sister of a resident at this community is pleased with the cleanliness and the ease of transition between care levels, saying, "She's in that same facility. She remembers everybody, and she has the same people taking care of her."
