Dignity, respect and caring. It’s our way of life.
The Menig Nursing Home has met seniors’ needs to live with respect and dignity since 1999, providing supportive, compassionate long-term care. Home to 30 residents, Menig was originally part of Gifford Medical Center’s hospital campus. In 2015, it moved up the hill to beautiful Randolph Center, anchoring the new Morgan Orchards Senior Living Community.
Along with round-the-clock nursing care, ready access to health care services, and restaurant-quality meals, the staff at Menig focuses on providing resident directed care. This approach returns much decision-making to the residents, and encourages meaningful relationships between staff and peers, maintaining a caring community that eases feelings of isolation.
The furnished single and double rooms at Menig are grouped into two “neighborhoods.” Every resident has a TV, phone, and personalized, handmade quilt. We invite everyone to decorate their rooms with special items from home.
Each neighborhood also has a comfortable living room, with space for gatherings and quiet times, tables for family visits, puzzles and games, and a large selection of movies, audiobooks, and large-print books. Our “village square,” with a beautiful Porter Music Box and piano, is a gathering spot for all residents, and is home to a full service on-site beauty salon.
Gifford’s professional chefs prepare our meals, using fresh local foods whenever possible. We encourage residents to exercise, join in sing-alongs, enjoy arts and crafts, play bingo and trivia contests, attend church services here, and join in our prayer group. We bring in music and pet visits, and our staff treats everyone like family.
Award-winning excellence. It’s our tradition.
Just how good is the care and quality of living at Menig?
