Farron Bernhardt has spent over 30 years in housing development and especially managing senior living centers. Now he’s moving up to CEO of a highly-reviewed assisted living community in San Luis Obispo, CA. This assisted living community is The Manse on Marsh, cited by many senior living experts as one of the best places for elderly loved ones to receive care, and winner of many awards including the Caring Star award in both 2015 and 2016. Bernhardt will be taking his knowledge and experience to work alongside owner Chris Skiff and his team of administrators. Bernhardt has said he feels honored to take this position and wants to continue making Manse on Marsh the best place for the elderly to come.
What The Manse on Marsh does is provide a home away from home for seniors who need care with the assistance of staff and sometimes medical personnel. This is not just physical care for those who might have trouble walking, or need help with personal grooming needs, but also emotional and mental needs because feeling alone or isolated can sometimes be more difficult even than physical struggles. At Manse on Marsh, seniors are part of a family of caregivers and have the opportunities to interact with other tenants, as well as engage in social activities.
The Manse on Marsh provides a variety of housing options for its tenants. They have buildings with studio apartments with access to dining areas and the main lobby, and they also have private houses and cottages for those who need more space to themselves. There is room service available and emergency pendants in case staff need to be contacted right away. Families can come visit at any time and pets are welcome to live at Manse on Marsh, and while visiting families and their loved ones can take walks along the trails surrounding the property, or go into downtown San Luis Obispo and enjoy shopping or festivities. Chris Skiff is proud of what he’s built here at the Manse on Marsh, a man who has spent over 16 years cultivating this friendly place, and graduated with honors from UCLA.
