The Ranch

Assisted Living

The Ranch provides an assisted living setting for up to 88 residents. Residents are placed in either a shared room in a Dorm setting or a private bedroom in a Lodge setting based on where staff and loved ones believe would be a best fit. The Lodges offer a vibrant, lively atmosphere; each building is filled with natural and ambient light. The Dorm is a great fit for those with sensory stimulation issues who still need active stimulation but in a more calming environment. The whole Ranch community is equipped with 24-hour a day awake staff.  A staff of resident trainers provides supervision and assistance with daily living as well as life-enriching activities. 

Whether your loved one is leaving home for the first time or has lived in other care settings, Ranch residents find their new life at Marbridge full of growth opportunities and leisure/social activities.
