Children live on campus in homelike cottages with a maximum of ten children with one adult caregiver, one cottage coordinator, and two residential counselors per cottage. The children are grouped by age and gender, ranging from ages five to eighteen years. Children participate in scheduled activities provided by the activities staff such as organized team sports, church groups and scouts.

Located on campus is the Epworth Memorial United Methodist Church. Church school classes and Sunday worship are offered every week. The children are encouraged to participate beyond the services by joining the choir or serving as ushers or acolytes. United Methodist Youth Foundation (UMYF) is also available to middle and high school students.

Established as a ministry to young children with disabilities and special needs and their families. The Epworth Early Intervention Center program provides a specialized pre-school setting for children ages birth to five years. In-home family training is also available for infants and toddlers under the age of three. In our specialized pre-school, teachers and parents work together to develop goals and activities designed to help each child reach his or her greatest potential. The home-based Family Training Component provides emotional support for the family, along with weekly visits by an Early Intervention Specialist.

Epworth provides educational care for students grades K-12 through the Barnes Learning Center (BLC), the tutoring facility located on campus. The BLC is open daily for after-school enrichment in all subject areas.

A program for older youth who have reached an age of majority or who have graduated high school. While a few of these young people live on campus, most are in other settings pursuing higher education. All receive help based upon their individualized plan of care and are supervised by Epworth staff.

The Methodist Manor of the Pee Dee

Methodist Manor began as a group of friends who met weekly over ice cream following services at Central United Methodist Church, earning the nickname, “the ice cream gang.”

The group, facing the uncertainty of their retirement years but wanting to hold on to their independence and involvement in the community, realized the need for a place that could help them maintain their lifestyle and also provide security for the future.

Their vision soon caught the attention of Reverend Robert C. Faulkner, who with help from several key congregational members worked diligently to turn their vision into reality.

Their diligence came to fruition when in December of 1991, Methodist Manor opened with 82 independent living apartments, 19 assisted living suites and 22 skilled nursing beds. Many in the Florence area excitedly grasped the opportunity to be part of this special community and within two years, full occupancy was reached and the waiting list grew.

In the years since, Methodist Manor has continued to grow and change to meet the needs of mature members of the Florence community, adding additional assisted living suites, a new addition of independent living apartment homes and two phases of patio homes.

Other special projects have included a health care center, memory care suites and an elegant 5,000 square-foot chapel. We are still growing and making a better place to live for our valued residents.

Today, Methodist Manor offer a full range of independent living options, from our Asbury Village patio homes, to our 100 independent living apartments, 53 assisted living suites, 12 memory care suites and 32 skilled nursing beds.

As we look to the future, we continue striving to create comfortable spaces that enhance the independence and quality of life of our residents. We hope you see yourself in our future as well.
