Services Provided: Residential Care, Adult Hourly Care and Respite Care and Support Groups. Ashley Manor was created to make a difference in the lives of those suffering with memory loss and their families. The Founders started Ashley Manor because they wanted a residential care facility in which they could place their loved ones that dealt with dementia. They were not pleased with the type of care available to their Mom, Dad and Grandfather. However, after an intensive study and collaboration with individuals that had extensive knowledge and experience of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, a dream to create facilities where they could place their loved ones was realized. That place was and is Ashley Manor Care Centers, and those relatives placed, like all other residents, were given the best of care for the rest of their lives.
