Friday night happy hour serves up fun for residents and guests



Friday night happy hours are hosted every Friday at the Manse on Marsh assisted living facility in San Luis Obispo at 3:30 p.m. Friends and family are always welcome, and are encouraged to attend.

Happy hours are designed to be a casual social event, where all of members of the family, including kids, are invited to attend. Family members of all ages come together to socialize, relax and meet new friends. In fact, at the most recent event, they had several generations of attendees ranging from a brand new baby to a centenarian. It’s a wonderful opportunity for residents and guests alike to connect and have fun!

Each happy hour, there is live entertainment, wine, soda and other beverages and tasty hors-d’oeuvres. They have musical guests as well, usually local, acoustic musicians. At the most recent Friday night happy hour, the musical guests were a husband and wife guitar duo.

The Manse is not an “everyday” assisted living facility; but instead are an upscale, “hometown” community, and their goal is to: “serve others with so much compassion that it enriches their lives every day.” Friday night happy hours are a great example of this philosophy in work.

This social function allows meaningful interactions and allows residents to share their families with other members of their community. Happy hours are an opportunity for residents to not just enjoy the company of their own family and friends, but also to meet the family members of their fellow community members. Managers and directors also socialize at these events. They love to participate, care deeply for residents, and have an authentic desire to get to know families and friends. The staff’s keen ability to connect with people and socialize serves both individuals and the community as a whole.

The Manse is located at 475 Marsh Street, in San Luis Obispo. For more information about Friday night happy hours or other inquiries, call (805) 541-4222.
