Tips for Touring The Manse on Marsh


If you’ve decided on assisted living as the next step for a loved one’s or your own life journey, it’s important to visit any of your prospective facilities, and more than once if you can. Experts in senior care recommend visiting at different times of the day, noting that meal times are a good place to start.

Beyond your tour of The Manse on Marsh campus housing and amenities, take time to talk to residents and staff for a sense of our culture and environment. Ask us about available services and about our staff scheduling during the day and at night. At The Manse on Marsh, we believe in active lifestyles – some of our residents enjoyed a pick-up basketball game with Executive Director Logan Sexton earlier this month – never hesitate to ask about joining us in one of our scheduled resident activities.

Some thorough online resources for senior care and assisted living facility visits include checklists from the AARP, the Alzheimer’s Association, California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, the Assisted Living Consumer Alliance and the Long Term Care Community Coalition.
