A free service assisting seniors and their families since 2001

Whether families are looking at a care facility or hiring care at home, California Senior Living was designed with family’s needs in mind. This free, confidential service is available seven days a week, including evenings for those caregivers who may be working and caring for their own children.

Ken and Marianne Knight began helping families search for the right care option for their loved ones in 2001. Understanding that this can be a difficult and frustrating time, they believe that any family caring for an aging loved one deserves reliable information they can count on.

“You were our twentieth phone call and the first contact that made sense.”

As caregivers for their own parents, their story goes beyond their professional experience in the senior care industry. Both have assisted their parents throughout the aging process, including care and rehabilitation due to stroke, the devastating diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease, and facing the possibility of placement of a loved one in a nursing home. Ken and Marianne know firsthand the toll that caring for a loved one can take on a family. They are here to help.

It is their personal experience which makes this service unique. Both Marianne and Ken are lifelong residents of Ventura County and are experts in the region. Families can count on having someone to listen to their needs and guide them through the process so they can focus on what care option might be best for their loved one.

Perspective and Compassion

"As we’ve learned since my dad’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, the caregiver often needs as much if not more support than the patient. That’s the realization I had when my mom’s health started failing just when my dad needed to find a new memory care community. We were referred to Marianne at California Senior living to help us identify a new living situation but she did much more than that. She gave us perspective on what we needed and choices to compare. With sincere compassion and desire to help, she found us the best possible living situation for my dad in a very timely manner which was key as he could no longer stay where he was. His new home turned out to be just the right thing at the right time. She regularly checks in to let us know we’re still on her radar, which is a very nice gesture given care giving can leave a person feeling alone and isolated. I would recommend CSL to anyone searching for safe eldercare."

I can’t thank you enough

"I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me. Our family was deeply distressed to learn that our mother could not return home after going to the hospital. The difficult decision to move our mother out of her home was unbearable for our family. The information provided by Marianne in the hospital made it easier for us to move forward as a family. We felt confident that we were doing the right thing for mom. After mom was settled into her new care facility, Marianne checked back with us to be sure we were happy with her care. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for you all."

Thank you for the help you gave

"Thank you Marianne for the help you gave my wife and I. It was very difficult to have to move my wife out of our home after 62 years of marriage. Your patience and expert knowledge offered me and my family much relief during that time."

Fortunate to have a service such as yours

"Working caregivers are very fortunate to have a service in our area such as yours. I wanted to make my grandmother’s care needs a priority, but didn’t have the time to do the research. Ken assisted in putting together a list of care agencies that were able to help us. Without his help, I don’t know how I would have found the right caregiver for her, and the California Senior Living staff continually checks in on us to be sure my grandmother is ok. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your help.”
