Taylor Manor: Honoring your Father and Mother
The saying goes that “home is where the heart is” and at Taylor Manor we strive to be a comfortable, caring place to call home. Our residents and their families often tell us that Taylor Manor is different because, “Here, it feels like family.”
Taylor Manor was established to care for sick and elderly residents according to the example and teachings of Jesus Christ out of love for Him and His people. Each resident’s life is sacred and he or she is made to feel respected and treasured as God’s chosen one.
In January of 1951, the Daughters of Saint Rita opened the original Taylor Manor Nursing Home. The home expanded so quickly that a larger facility became necessary, and the present building was constructed in 1959. The Daughters of St. Rita continued to operate the Manor for nearly two decades. In the mid-1970’s, it became apparent that the Daughters would no longer be able to maintain the nursing home. Versailles was then still part of the Diocese of Covington, and Bishop Richard Ackerman asked the Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker to take over the facility in 1977. In the years since, the Sisters at Taylor Manor have continued to provide long-term care in what remains the Diocese of Lexington’s only Catholic long-term nursing facility.
We consider it our privilege and calling to care for each person that visits our facility. Our purpose is to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our residents but our goal is to help you and your loved one feel at home.
At Taylor Manor we realize that the process of transition to assisted living can be a difficult time for you and your loved one.

“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!”
