We know times are hard for everyone right now, we are continually praying for peace and strength as we navigate this uncertainty. With the growing threat of Coronavirus, we have had our nursing facility, Taylor Manor locked down since last Monday, and our school St. Joseph Academy is currently closed for 2 weeks. These steps are essential in having our employees, staff, students, and residents all stay safe and healthy, however, being closed will have a significant impact on our overall operating budget.
We are grateful for any and all support during this time of confusion. Any donations will be used to offset costs associated with our canceled events. You can donate through Facebook or both Taylor Manor and the St. Joseph Academy websites.
The Sisters will be praying diligently for our mission but also for the health and safety of those in our community and around the world. Given the current state of things, the fact that you are willing to donate to our cause is so greatly appreciated. We thank you for your generosity and kindness.

We got to enjoy the sun today and a little bulldog named Hazel!
Sunshine, warmth, flowers, and visits with family. We miss you all!
Today we held a beautiful garden party before the storms rolled in.
We are spending some time in the sun, it’s good for the soul! And to make our day even more festive we are listening to music from the 50’s.
Ziggy, our D.O.N’s Christina’s faithful assistant, came to brighten the residents day! He was a very good boy and went back to his office extra tired.
Thank you to everyone who donated bird feeders! Our residents are having a great time watching their new friends and listening to the birds singing songs of joy! Our grounds here at Taylor Manor are also looking splendid for Spring!
There are days when the sun is shining, the weather starts warming up and you forget about all the happenings of this world. Then you remember how much God loves you and also how flowers can always bring a smile to any face.
Our residents were full of joy opening cards and letters from people who live all over the U.S. We are so thankful & blessed that our community is so supportive and loving! Thank you for sending these treasured items.
We are all still hanging in there, and we hope everyone is also! We know this is tough but soon enough life will be back to normal. Residents got to enjoy ice cream today! It truly brightened everyone’s day.
Today we are praying for you and also playing bingo! Residents are doing great and keeping busy.
Happy St. Patrick’s day. We are all doing great just missing our loved ones.
Under the advisement of Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, Taylor Manor will be restricting all visitors unless it’s an emergency situation. There will be NO public Mass until further notice.
If an emergency arises, we will still be screening visitors for the following symptoms:
– Cough/respiratory issues
– Shortness of breath
If any of these symptoms have occurred in the last few weeks, you will not be allowed in the facility. We apologize for any inconvenience however our resident’s safety is our main concern. We encourage you to call our main phone number to speak to your loved one.
Thank you for understanding.
“This place is a Godsend just when my husband needed it.
I cannot say enough good things about the loving atmosphere
that prevails there from the staff to the beautiful grounds.”
“My mother moved to Taylor Manor 18 months ago. I visit almost every day and what impresses me about Taylor Manor is their holistic approach
to care including an individual's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. A listening ear has always been available to me if I voiced any concerns and resolution has always been quick to follow. I appreciate the love and care that everyone shows my mother and the other residents of Taylor Manor.”
“What Taylor Manor means to me:
As a family member, Taylor Manor means comfort and care. I strive to insure my wife, Linda is most of all, comfortable. No pain, hardships, anxiety, any physical discomfort. She will remain comfortable by the care of her needs by the Taylor Manor staff. Comfort and care, for Linda and all the other residents at Taylor Manor.”
“After moving my mother to Lexington to an Independent Living
Facility late in 2010, she was moved four more times all due to
declining health issues and increased dementia. With each move, she became more distraught, depressed and unhappy until she almost
totally quit talking to me at all. In December, 2015, a friend told
me about Taylor Manor and how happy her loved one had been there. After visiting Taylor Manor, I moved my mother there in January, 2016.
I truly believe it saved her life! She is happy, interacts with me again
and is so well cared for. After her move to Taylor Manor, I asked her
one day if she would like to take a ride with me as before she was
always begging me to take her home. She responded with a quick,
"NO!" Surprised, I asked her why not? My mother replied, "Because
I'm afraid you won't bring me back here!" I love Taylor Manor!”
