Our vibrant campus provides residential care for up to 265 adults with cognitive disabilities. Unlike other residential options, our 200-acre campus consists of three interconnected communities where we provide varying levels of care from independent and semi-independent care to assisted living to skilled nursing care. Marbridge offers residents and their families the security of a long-term continuum of care for each individual based on their unique needs.
Independent & Semi-Independent Living
The Village at Marbridge is a neighborhood of 15 cottages nestled along a tree-lined street that provides semi-independent living for developmentally disabled adults. A community center provides a place to gather for meals and special events or leisure time. The Village provides a safe, caring environment that includes vocational training, education, socialization and counseling. Many Village residents hold jobs in the Austin community.
A tree-lined boulevard greets visitors as they enter the Ranch campus, where we provide assisted living for adults who require a more structured and supervised day. Daily training and activities may include horticultural therapy, arts and crafts, sports, music, computer work, functional academics and life and social skills training. Residents enjoy a myriad of social opportunities available in Austin, with 24-hour awake staffing and care.
Skilled Nursing Care
Residents with significant medical care needs can still enjoy a full and active life. Villa residents participate in many events and activities on the Marbridge campus. Likewise, many Ranch and Village residents regularly visit the Villa campus to see friends and enjoy special events found only at the Villa. The Villa provides skilled nursing care to Marbridge residents as well as to patients from the southwest Austin area.
