"Thanks for each of your caring and interest in Bill Hilliard while he was in The Ashley Place. He loved it there and often mentioned how special you are. You really care for people because you love them and not because it is your job. You are a great staff and we want to thank all of you." Vonnie Young and family

Do you spend most days without company or things to do? You won't here at The Ashley Place. You can attend the many activities we have in our large Social Hall. Our residents really enjoy socializing with each other. If you have a special occasion coming up, we can arrange to celebrate it in the Social Hall. There is plenty of room for all your family and friends to attend! (If you move your cursor over the photos, a magnifying glass will appear.

If you are feeling a bit under the weather we will bring your meals to your room until you are better, again at no additional charge.
Residential care is commonly referred to as "Assisted Living". It is a state licensed, non-medical type of care in which the residents of the facility receive the care and supervision of daily activities that they require. That includes help with medications, meals, housekeeping, laundry, bathing and dressing. A residential care facility for the elderly (RCFE) serves residents who are at least sixty years old, although in certain cases people who are younger than sixty years old may reside in an RCFE if they need the services provided and are appropriate for the facility. Since an RCFE is not a medical facility, medical insurance programs such as MediCal and Medicare do not typically pay for a resident's stay. Some residents do have private, long-term care insurance that pays the monthly fee and some low income residents qualify for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program through the Social Security Administration which assists in paying a reduced monthly fee. The majority of residents use their income and assets to pay the monthly fee, similar to paying a monthly mortgage or rent payment. It is important to confirm that any facility you are considering is licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. This will ensure that the facility is inspected on a regular basis to assure that it is complying with all applicable regulations and that the Administrator attends at least forty hours of continuing education classes every two years.
