"I believe that the Pendleton Manor facility is the best kept secret in these 'good ole' West Virgina hills," says Robbie Sites.
"I could not ask for better personalized care. Of course knowing many of the residents and caregivers is an added benefit! I often get visitors from other local people visiting their folks here at the manor and they'll stop in to say hi."

Home again at Pendleton Manor
Homer Glover, former mayor of Franklin, West Virginia, and former president of Pendleton Manor, says that becoming a resident here has brought his life full circle.
And what a life it's been!
Homer served in the U.S. Navy for two years as a Petty Officer on the U.S.S. Nassau. After returning home from the Navy, he met Bonnie Waggy and the two were married on Nov. 1, 1946. The couple had six children, 21 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
In his youth, Homer took a great interest in family life, but he also enjoyed developing business ideas.
Homer says the atmosphere here is wonderful. Learn why "we're not your grandma's nursing home."
He started his first business with his brother, William Glover. That business, Glover’s Auto Supply, is still a landmark in Franklin today.
Homer was then a co-founder of other businesses such as B & H Hardware and Pic Pac Supermarket. He was a very successful real estate developer in the Pendleton County area and enjoyed farming most of his properties.
Eventually, Homer took on leadership of the community as mayor. During his term he was instrumental in developing projects such as the Franklin pool, Town Springs Water Filtration Plant and the town parking lot.
Homer also was very active in the Franklin Ruritan Club, Franklin Lions Club and the local Masonic Club. He was a member and served in many capacities at Franklin United Methodist Church.
Homer loved preaching the gospel to anyone he met, and was very active in the Gideon’s International and his church, and enjoyed traveling with his family and showing them God's work in beautiful places across the country.
Today, Homer enjoys reminiscing of the past and telling a good story, and he'll tell you that having a home at Pendleton Manor means having a place to receive the care he needs and the respect and love anyone would appreciate.
