From the Provider
If scenery and location is important in a new home for your senior loved one, view our video now! Few retirement home settings can compare to Manila Country Home Assisted Living Center, situated at the foot of Mahogany Mountain in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Residents are privileged to enjoy these grand views from their spacious bedrooms.
The size and atmosphere of the community creates comfort and contentment, as well. Guests make such comments as "feels like home," and "What a nice, cozy place to live. Just like you were still living in your own home, but with close friends." With just six units, people get to know one another and feel they are part of a family. Two of the units have their own outside entrances and are considered the independent living areas of the community. But all residents mingle and share activities.
Opened in 2009 after a complete remodel and renovation, Manila Country Home was founded by husband and wife David and Dian Gibb. The two had cared for Dianâ€™s parents in their final years and realized they adored caregiving. This ministry compelled them to start the assisted living community. "My wife and I enjoy caring for people," says Mr. Gibb, who is licensed as a nursing home administrator. His masterâ€™s in public administration plus years of business experience contribute to the management of Manila Country Home. Davidâ€™s competence coupled with Dianâ€™s years of organizational and caregiving proficiency make them perfect owners for one of Utahâ€™s most lovely retirement options.
Unique features of the community not only attract residents, but their families and other visitors canâ€™t resist such appealing amenities as playgrounds, horse and stables, pond and waterfall, a tree house, and even a theater room. Festivities like picnics and reunions tend to draw family participation, as well. Activities are designed around individual interests. But the single most celebrated benefit of Manila Country Home is the home cooking, supervised by registered dietician Diane Fager, who manages to maintain nutrition, while injecting flavor. Even neighbors to the community detect delicious aromas wafting their way. Highlights include homemade cookies and the occasional homespun ice cream.
- In-house registered nurse for supervision of medical records, administration and prescriptions

As if the preceding features and benefits were not enough, Manila Country Home regularly provides old-time music to lighten the spirits of residents. Few pleasures equal hearing the heartfelt songs of oneâ€™s youth. Bing Crosby might be heard one moment and Judy Garland, the next. Mini-concerts are also performed by Steve Buhler on both piano and organ. Schedule your tour today to be greeted by community favorite "Springtime In the Rockies."

Next Door Neighbor
We love our next door neighbor, Manila Country Home. Not only are the gardens and yards well kept but they add beauty to the area. The owners of the home are very much community givers. They have welcomed local church groups to bring in activites such as sewing clubs and music performances as well as working with the local senior center to encourage social development. Many times there has been a nice aroma of baked goods. The owners have encouraged the local kids to come visit with the residents and read to them. My kids have adopted them as grandparents. The rooms are well furnished and large and the staff is determined to give one on one interaction with the residents. This place is well worth coming over to visit and consider a nice homey place for your loved one.
