The Manor, supported by the community in which it is located, is dedicated to fulfilling the physical, social, spiritual and recreational needs of its residents.
Completely residential in nature, Hugh Ash Manor is designed specifically for active senior citizens who live self-reliant lifestyles.
Since 1971, it has been our purpose to provide residents of moderate income pleasant living accommodations in a gracious setting.
Much care is given to creating an environment rich in cultural and recreational opportunities where residents can choose new friends and have fun doing things together. With our informal concept and atmosphere, Manor residents can participate in planned activities to whatever degree they wish.
