The Bernard L. Samson Nursing Center residents benefit from comprehensive nursing, medical and rehabilitation programs.
A broad spectrum of on-site medical services overseen by our board certified geriatrician, Dr. David LeVine, include:
In November 2014, the Resident Council of the Bernard L. Samson Nursing Center, with the help of the rehabilitation department and other staff, sent 14 care packages to deployed airmen at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. The packages contained numerous items that were shared throughout the base.
Loud: "producing or capable of producing much noise; easily audible, with a great deal of volume"
Big: "of considerable size, extent, or intensity, substantial, great, huge"
The definitions of big and loud represent the foundation of the new treatment technique that Menorah Manor's therapy department is now able to provide, specifically to Parkinson's and neurological disorder patients. The name of the new treatment is called the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) LOUD and BIG Program.
During the Masked Ball next spring to celebrate Menorah Manor’s 30th anniversary, there will be a silent auction of masks signed by a host of celebrities, but the biggest coup and the mask with the most historic value undoubtedly will be the one former Seminole resident Eric Lynn brought back from Israel.

Residents of The Samson Nursing Center celebrated the World Series today with a visit from Raymond, The Tampa Bay Ray's mascot.
I have had two recent experiences that were gratifying, satisfying and inspirational – and they both occurred at the place where I am privileged to work – Menorah Manor.
Monday, August 4th marked the first day of Menorah Manor's new Puree Dining Program. Under the program, residents on a puree diet receive meals which are shaped to closely resemble meatloaf, chicken, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, and other food.
Beginning in late fall, The Bernard L. Samson Nursing Center will initiate a restaurant-style dining program. The program, already in effect at both of Menorah Manor’s assisted living communities (The Toby Weinman Assisted Living Residence and The Inn on the Pond), will provide residents with a dining experience that preserves dignity and provides choice. Menu options will be offered for a week, along with daily specials. Residents will be served by staff who provide personalized service.
Lorraine Pepin, resident of The Bernard L. Samson Nursing Center, a Menorah Manor community, has a talent that is a lost art form. Pepin has a talent of hand-sewing quilts. She states, “I enjoy sewing quilts because it’s relaxing. It’s therapeutic for me.” After sewing so many quilts, she says she does not have a favorite.
