The Ashley Manor story begins over 20 years ago when the original founders were looking for residential care facilities for their own loved ones. After extensive research they found the existing choices did not meet their own high standards, so they decided to create facilities to provide the level of care they demanded for their own family members.
As we have grown over the years we have stayed abreast of the ever-changing field of elder care. Our staff is specifically trained to meet the needs of our clients while providing them with love, care, and dignity. We feel it is our duty and our obligation to provide the highest standard of care for each of our clients, just as we would if they were our own family.
As we grow older it is natural that our physical and cognitive functions begin to fade. Seniors may begin experiencing trouble with basic tasks such as cooking or bathing. It may be difficult for them to reach low or high places. They may become increasingly forgetful. Over time, their condition may worsen to the point of needing assistance with everyday tasks.
As you begin your research on finding an appropriate facility for your loved one, you may experience a whole range of emotions from worry and stress to anger and guilt. Please know that these emotions are normal and that you are not alone. It takes patience, caring, and love to support and care for a loved one as they age. It can be frustrating and overwhelming at times, but also an opportunity for you to connect with your loved one on a deeper level.
Assisted living facilities – also called Senior Living facilities – exist because sometimes you just can’t do it alone anymore and need help. Although that may be hard to accept and be uncomfortable to admit, if you have reached the point of overwhelm it is time to find a facility that will best suit your needs.
At Ashley Manor we specialize in small, home-like facilities that typically house up to 16 residents at a time (with the exception of our one large apartment style assisted living we have in Boise, which is licensed for 70 residents.) Each home has a kitchen in the center of the home to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. With three hot meals a day and snacks, we make sure your loved one gets the nutrition he or she needs to stay healthy and strong.
Additionally, our friendly staff have been trained in the latest techniques and therapies to help your loved one thrive in his or her new environment. Social activities are integrated into daily life to give your loved one a sense of camaraderie and friendship with fellow residents.
When that time comes you may want to consider choosing a care facility that is experienced in caring for individuals with dementia. Although assisted living facilities can be a good choice when the resident simply needs help managing their day-to-day living, caring for a person with dementia requires a different level of expertise and experience.
At Ashley Manor Memory Care facilities we take the responsibility of caring for your loved one very seriously. We believe that each of our resident’s is unique and special. We believe they should be treated with dignity, respect, and kindness. We also believe they should be given the highest level of care available.

We know that making this choice is difficult for you, your loved one, and your entire family. In fact, the Founders had to make this same choice for their own loved ones, which is why they started Ashley Manor. They wanted a residential care facility in which they could place their loved ones who were dealing with dementia. Finding existing homes lacking in the demanding standards they required they decided to create their own facility that would live up to the quality of care they envisioned.
