QNET is one of Asia’s largest direct marketing companies, and it is dedicated to helping those in need of adequate education and basic sanitary needs. After a bit of research, I discovered that the corporation was going under the CSR banner of We Care, in Hyderabad, they have provided a safe, fresh water storage facility and drinking water to approximately eight hundred students. QNET has partnered with Lion’s Club to carry out it’s mission to provide clean water for schools. They plan to continue this philanthropy to help better society and improve conditions for citizens and students. This mission statement parallels the effort of the government called Swachh Vidyalaya. It was very apparent to me that QNET is a very caring and socially responsible company that is committed to leaving this planet a better place.
QNET is inspired by the philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi in that they believe in serving society and selfless service to others. This philosophy is embraced by those that are truly striving to be part of a great humanitarian effort. NETS’ parent company QI is also a member of the United Nations Global Compact Network. QNET encourages it’s employees and business partners to actively participate in these charitable efforts. QNET also is active internationally in helping the homeless and the destitute. The world should expect to hear of more active humanitarian efforts from QNET, and it’s parent company. If more companies took responsibility for doing what they can to better the world, then there would be much less suffering and poverty world wide.
Within California’s central coast in beautiful downtown San Luis Obispo resides a vibrant residential community made solely for seniors. The Manse on Marsh has become a well known retirement community that offers independent and assisted living for their residents. Owner Chris Skiff, a respected leader in his field, has owned and operated The Manse on Marsh for over a decade and has been involved in twenty other senior care facilities in his career.
TheManseBlog.com really seems to show what makes The Manse on Marsh stand out from its competition is the style of living. While most care facilities offer apartment style housing Manse on Marsh offers homes in a wonderful gated community with up to three bedrooms. They also offer apartments to those who need a smaller space, but for residents who want more privacy they have detached single room cottages as well. All of their housing is available to residents in either program, independent or assisted, but they also have smaller attached apartments for those who need more assistance regularly.
Each resident is given a pendant to wear around their neck that they can use to call for assistance any time day or night, and they have a consistent RN on call 24/7. Their expertly trained care team has a response time of less than a minute, and transportation to and from doctors appointments are covered in the general fee. Discretion during daily check-ins and assisted care is a high priority taught to all their staff as the owners know maintaining as much independence as possible is a key factor in keeping their residents happy.
All senior care facilities offer a general group of amenities such as three meals a day, laundry service, and turn down service but Manse on Marsh takes it one step further. Their atrium is a beautifully decorated hall with two salons, a home theater, library with computer access, activity rooms, and a bistro style restaurant for daily meals. Natural light filters in from the skylights allowing residents to dine under the warm California sun without dealing with the heat. Between meals bottled water, hot beverages, and fresh fruit or available to all residents.
The Manse Twitter outlines Daily activities like exercise and dance classes are offered daily in the atrium as well as daily bible study. Residents often go on neighborhood walks and weekly shopping trips downtown. Living in an assisted care facility can often seem like a terrible way to spend the rest of your life, but Manse on Marsh offers a luxurious yet affordable lifestyle to all seniors.
