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.

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.
