Spending the last of your golden years in an assisted living facility doesn’t exactly seem ideal to most, however these facilities are often needed despite their less than welcoming reputation. Most assisted living communities will come as a pleasant surprise and have a general standard of services offered to their residents such as laundry, transportation, and medical staff available at all times. For those who reside or plan on living in California The Manse on Marsh is an award winning premier assisted or independent living facility that offers superior care to its residents.
Manse on Marsh strives to create a new reputation for the term ‘old folks home’ by tarnishing the old stigma and bringing light to the high quality of life assisted living facilities can offer. Owner Chris Skiff has had a long standing career in senior care starting right after he graduated college. By the age of twenty-three Skiff had a hand in developing affordable apartments for seniors, and since then he has helped developed over twenty communities for seniors. His expertise and passion for ensuring a healthy and happy life for seniors has made Manse on Marsh a stand out facility and offers both independent and assisted living, and a wealth of activities.
Independence is something many seniors don’t want to give up, and its an understandable stance which is why Manse on Marsh offers assistance depending on what the resident asks for, a major high point in Caring.com’s reviews. Their highly trained staff members are available around the clock as well medication technicians. Since discretion is a high priority each resident is given a pendant they may use to call for help at any time in addition to the five ‘check ins’ given to every resident regardless of their additional care. This way every resident can address any issues, ensure their laundry is done, beds are made, and they have their three daily meal tickets given to them before they head out for the day. For those who require no added assistance Manse on Marsh offers homes and cottages adjacent to the studio and one bedroom apartments so residents can have their privacy separate from the community if they wish.
Truth be told most people imagine ‘old folks home’ to have a dining hall resembling a hospital cafeteria, but Manse on Marsh offers an actual bistro with professional chefs and the option to dine outside in the sun or under the skylights. Walks, bible study, shopping outings, even jazzercise classes are offered daily to residents as well as a variety of other even paced activities. Needing assistance during your later years doesn’t mean your quality of life is finished, and with places like Manse on Marsh you can continue thriving well after the kids are grown and you’ve retired.
