A San Luis Obispo, CA assisted living center was just awarded the Caring Star award by a non-profit assisted living center review group. The elderly home was The Manse on Marsh, a notable place founded by Chris Skiff that has won many other honors for its friendly atmosphere. To win the Caring Star award, a facility must maintain at least a 4-star rating throughout a period of about 3 years, have at least 3 reviews, and have at least one of those rate them a 5-star. Caring Stars has been one of the most trusted peer review groups for elderly living communities, and this latest award is a testament to The Manse on Marsh‘s success.
The Manse on Marsh provides families with a place that they can send elderly loved ones if a situation arises from which that loved one can no longer stay at home unattended. It can be a difficult time as many elderly people become attached to their homes and are often not ready to become dependent on others for care. This place gives elderly people an atmosphere where they can still maintain much of their independence, but have staff nearby for when they’re needed. The Manse on Marsh is situated in a community that’s quiet, but still close enough to the San Luis Obispo downtown area that visitors can easily get there when needed.
Tenants have many choices when deciding to move to The Manse on Marsh, such as living in an apartment complex, or having their own cottage home, depending on what they’re comfortable with, and they can choose to dine publicly or have private meals catered to them. There are many social events and activities for tenants to participate in whether it’s onsite church services, community concerts, art exhibitions, or exercise programs. Tenants also have amenities such as mail service, laundry, cable TV, and medication administration at their disposal. Times of transition don’t have to be burdensome, and The Manse on Marsh works hard to ensure they aren’t.
