The Manse is a San Luis Obispo assisted living facility that stands heads above the rest. As the premiere senior care facility on the Central Coast, the manse is dedicated to providing compassionate, life-enriching, independent assisted living.
Placing a senior family member in an assisted living facility can often be a tough decision. Is assisted living really worth the investment? What are the advantages of placing a senior in an assisted living facility as opposed to in-home care?
Safety
Equipping a home with safety equipment such as medical alert systems and shower railings can be expensive. Assisted living facilities are designed with safety concerns in mind, plus there is always staff on site that can respond to an emergency in a matter of minutes.
Daily living assistance
Often seniors need help with daily living activities such as dressing, eating and bathing. Family caregivers are responsible for helping the senior loved one with these activities if they are living at home, but these responsibilities can often put a strain on the family, both emotionally and financially. Assisted living facilities are staffed with compassionate caregivers that can help assist seniors with these activities, so that their time with their families can focus on enjoyment.
Physical and social stimulation
Many seniors prefer the assisted living lifestyle because of the access that it provides to stimulating activities. The Manse provides an array of enriching social activities such as happy hours, art classes, entertainment, high tea, and outings around beautiful San Luis Obispo. The Manse also boasts a private theater, as well as a fitness center where seniors can maintain their physical health.
Cleaning, cooking and transportation
Other day-to-day chores such as cleaning, landscaping, cooking and planning meals, getting to doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping are other responsibilities that would usually fall on a family member if the senior were living at home. The Manse will lift the weight off the family’s shoulders by providing those services for the resident.
Placing a senior loved one at The Manse San Luis Obispo assisted living facility can help alleviate stress on the family, and provide the senior with an active, healthy, stimulating and enjoyable lifestyle.

What is the difference between Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing?

San Luis Obispo assisted living facility The Manse is a premiere, high-end senior assisted living facility that provides a number of different care options for residents.

The Manse is an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities differ from skilled nursing facilities in a number of ways:

Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living has grown in popularity in the last few decades. Assisted living facilities provide a wide range of services, and are typically designed for seniors who can live independently, but may require some degree of assistance.

Some types of care that assisted living facilities may provide:

-Meals
-Housekeeping
-Fitness programs
-Transportation
-Supervision and security
-Access to medical services
-Private rooms

The Manse is a San Luis Obispo assisted living facility that provides all of these services, as well as stimulating activities, luxury living quarters, restaurant style dining, and more.

Skilled Nursing Facilities

Skilled nursing facilities are facilities that provide medical care services. They are the highest level of care available to seniors. Often, seniors will be placed in nursing homes temporarily, sometimes following major surgeries or sudden declines in health.

At skilled nursing facilities, skilled nursing care is available on site, 24 hours a day, and a licensed physician supervises each patient. Often, other medical professionals like physical therapists are also on site.

Some types of care that skilled nursing facilities may provide:

-Medications
-Meals
-Semi-private rooms
-Physical therapy
-Nursing care
-Dietary counseling
-Medical supplies and equipment access
-Ambulance transportation

Unlike assisted living, skilled nursing care rendered in a skilled nursing facility can also be covered by Medicare Part A. Medicare only covers these costs for a period of time, typically about 100 days after a hospitalization.

The Manse San Luis Obispo assisted living facility provides services for seniors that wish to and are able to maintain a degree of independence. Unlike other assisted living care facilities, at The Manse, residents or their families pay only for the services that they need.
