What to expect when you enter an Independent living facility is surprising to some people. Some people think of Independent living as an “old folks home” but it is not like that at the Manse on Marsh. This facility is like home. A beautiful Spanish style home is what you will see when you pull up to the front door. You will find people sitting outside when the weather is beautiful. The birds will be singing and the squirrels will be running around on the hiking trails around the facility. Sitting on one of the outside balconies is people drinking a cup of coffee and enjoying the warmth of the outside. What you will see when you enter an independent living facility called the Manse is a beautiful facility filled with care and love.
Each day you wake up and head down to the dining area. You are greeted by staff members with smiling faces and good morning hugs. The family atmosphere is what you enjoy each day. People that work at the Manse are more like your friends. You sit at your favorite table with some of your new friends. The staff brings you a warm cup of coffee and your favorite breakfast roll. The newspaper is sitting close by for your enjoyment. Why read when you have such wonderful company at the table with you. Your conversation begins with what is on schedule for the day. Your friends begin going over the daily activities and you chose your favorites to attend.
After breakfast, you head to your apartment to shower and get dressed for the day. You are unable to get into the shower so the nurse aid comes in to help you. After your shower, the aid helps you pull on your clothes. You pull on your shoes, swallow your morning pills, and head out the door to the activity room. Once in the activity room, you find your group of friends. You sit down with them and the activity staff brings over your easel and paints. The bowl of fruit is on the table and you begin to paint. It doesn’t matter if you have the talent or not. You laugh with your friends as you all see how badly you paint.
You end your day back in your own apartment. The television is playing your favorite movie and the phone rings. It is your grandson. He says he is coming to visit with you on Wednesday. You talk and laugh with your family and then hang up the phone. Your family can see how happy you are at the Manse on Marsh in California. They were scared when they first mentioned it to you but now they can see you are happy and thriving with your extended family at Manse.
