I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
Maranatha Village is associated with the Assembly of God church. My mother has been with this church for a very long time, it is the place that she always wanted to go, and it ended up being quite affordable. It is a 180-acre campus and very safe; they take very good care of their residents. It is really a wonderful place. My mother says the food is amazing. They charge $150 a month, so that they could go and eat lunch, but it is full; it has dessert, their drink, salads, and a big meal, and then they give them little packages that they could take home for their evening meal. They have little shuttles, and they take them to Branson as well as to the theaters in Springfield once a month, and then their little shuttle will take them to Walmart several times a week or the Dollar General or wherever they want to go. They have activities in their building like Bingo every week and Bible studies throughout the week, they have guest speakers, and they have a chapel that they take them to 3 times a week for the actual church services. They also have a big community center where they have scheduled activities too. They have facilities for every stage, from the independent living apartments down to assisted living and nursing home, and they also have a hospital. So they see them through the entire last phase of their life, and what is great is that all the people they are surrounded with get to visit them because they are still on the same campus. They will take them down there to see them, be it in the nursing home or wherever, so they really stay connected.
They showed me some the apartments that some of the residents live in at Maranatha Village. They have an apartment area for people who can take complete care of themselves. They also have assisted living, which is what I want to look at for my dad. The rooms were OK, but they were smaller than I thought they should be. The nursing home I didn’t care for. It was too crowded. The staff was friendly, but it didn’t feel like home. The dining room is OK, nothing fancy.
