If scenery and location is important in a new home for your senior loved one, view our video now! Few retirement home settings can compare to Manila Country Home Assisted Living Center, situated at the foot of Mahogany Mountain in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Residents are privileged to enjoy these grand views from their spacious bedrooms.
The size and atmosphere of the community creates comfort and contentment, as well. Guests make such comments as "feels like home," and "What a nice, cozy place to live. Just like you were still living in your own home, but with close friends." With just six units, people get to know one another and feel they are part of a family. Two of the units have their own outside entrances and are considered the independent living areas of the community. But all residents mingle and share activities.
Opened in 2009 after a complete remodel and renovation, Manila Country Home was founded by husband and wife David and Dian Gibb. The two had cared for Dian’s parents in their final years and realized they adored caregiving. This ministry compelled them to start the assisted living community. "My wife and I enjoy caring for people," says Mr. Gibb, who is licensed as a nursing home administrator. His master’s in public administration plus years of business experience contribute to the management of Manila Country Home. David’s competence coupled with Dian’s years of organizational and caregiving proficiency make them perfect owners for one of Utah’s most lovely retirement options.
Unique features of the community not only attract residents, but their families and other visitors can’t resist such appealing amenities as playgrounds, horse and stables, pond and waterfall, a tree house, and even a theater room. Festivities like picnics and reunions tend to draw family participation, as well. Activities are designed around individual interests. But the single most celebrated benefit of Manila Country Home is the home cooking, supervised by registered dietician Diane Fager, who manages to maintain nutrition, while injecting flavor. Even neighbors to the community detect delicious aromas wafting their way. Highlights include homemade cookies and the occasional homespun ice cream.
As if the preceding features and benefits were not enough, Manila Country Home regularly provides old-time music to lighten the spirits of residents. Few pleasures equal hearing the heartfelt songs of one’s youth. Bing Crosby might be heard one moment and Judy Garland, the next. Mini-concerts are also performed by Steve Buhler on both piano and organ. Schedule your tour today to be greeted by community favorite "Springtime In the Rockies."
