Park Manor Health Care & Rehabilitation Center in DeSoto has been named the best nursing home in the Best Southwest area by Focus Daily News readers. This is the ninth time since 2011 for their facility to be honored as Best Nursing Home in the Readers’ Choice Awards.

Celisse Rideaux has been Park Manor’s Administrator for eleven months now. She has been a licensed Nursing Home Administrator for eight years.

Rideaux said, “It has been an honor to work in DeSoto, where I was raised. My mother is also a nursing home administrator, so you can say I followed in her footsteps. At Park Manor, our staff truly care for the residents, and we provide a family atmosphere. We provide quality of care and a peace of mind.
