“I have made great friends since coming here.”- Marian’s House client, David

On behalf of The Farash Foundation, Marian’s House is named in honor and of blessed memory of Marian M. Farash. The house is specially designed for both one-on-one interaction and group activities. A large kitchen and eating area enables guests to engage during meal preparation; the family room provides ample space for activities, movies and relaxation; a quiet room offers a soothing, calm environment; an enclosed sunroom provides a bright, cheerful, plant-filled space; and a fenced-in yard with an abundance of plants, flowers and shrubs provides a safe outdoor walking area. Two guest rooms are available for occasional overnight weekend respite stays; caregivers may take advantage of this service while on vacation or if they simply need a break. Full-day services include full lunch and afternoon snack. For overnight respite stays, dinner is also provided.

Activities at Marian’s House center on everyday life, such as cooking, gardening, exercising, reading, intellectual activities, etc. Guests are encouraged to participate as much as they are able and willing. Additional activities are tailored to each individual’s interests, talents and life roles.

A program manager with expertise in the field of memory care supervises all activities and services*.

In affiliation with the Alzheimer’s Association, support groups and educational sessions are held in the evenings at Marian’s House. Meetings are facilitated by the Alzheimer’s Association and are held every third Monday of the month from 5:30–6:30 pm. A men’s only support group is offered every fourth Wednesday of the month from 3-4 pm and is facilitated by the Alzheimer’s Association.

Marian’s House guests can come for either all or part of the day while their caregivers work or take care of their own needs. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, except holidays. Caregivers must reserve space for the day(s) they wish their loved one to attend.
