Formal Dining Room:
Tables of five or six are set for dinner which is provided seven days a week. Table linens and decorations change often and compliment the holidays. Seats are not assigned, so residents have opportunities to meet others while enjoying the wonderful food provided by our excellent kitchen staff. Each dinner is served at 5:30pm based on the resident's menu selection for the week. Residents have a choice of two entrees or an alternative choice each evening. Sunday's meal is special and served at 1:00pm. Special diets are not available, although each meal includes a "sugar-free" dessert. Residents monitor their own diets by selecting their entrees from the weekly menus.
A formal parlor with couches, chairs and a dining table for 10 is available for resident use, and can be reserved for private gatherings. This room is also used for Bridge clubs, our monthly book club, and various meetings or groups. Several residents have reserved this room for birthday parties, anniversary parties, and even bridal and baby showers for their relatives. A large screen television set is used for movies.
A guest room is available on a first-come, first-served basis for a minimal fee. This allows guests to have their privacy as well as residents during the evening hours. Roll-a-way cots are also available should residents need them in their apartments. All amenities are provided during ones stay.
Residents are enjoying our newly renovated and expanded library which holds a large variety of hard covered, paperbacks, large print and audio books. Two computers are there as well and classes are offered to familiarize residents with the internet and other computer functions. WiFi is available in our library for residents and their guests. A game table which hosts backgammon, checkers and chess is set in a cozy location near the fireplace. The library has that homey appeal with easy chairs provided for the residents reading pleasure.
The recreation area is a multi-purpose room. At one end we have a pool table, shuffle board, Wii exercise equipment and large tables for puzzles. Speakers, musical entertainment, resident meetings, and birthday parties are just a few activities that occur in this room.
While St. James' Manor is non-denominational, a small Chapel is open 24 hours a day, and a weekly communion service is provided. Morning prayer takes place three mornings each week.
