Where our Home is
The Best Care
A Heavenly Home is a licensed 24-hour, secured residential care home for up to six residents. Needs range from age-in-place minimal care to those with memory care issues, including adapting to progressive Alzheimer’s and dementia. Open-space living is garnished with warm colors and antique décor features. The Jimenez’s believe in maximum staffing — even beyond caregiver requirements. The residents live in a social setting with activities and enjoy lush outdoor landscaping with patio seating and two small pooches to love. And yet that is only the beginning of the Jimenezes’ dream for ultimate senior age-in-place living accommodations. They are currently well into construction of an entire campus for senior housing. In 2016, the Jimenezes and their financial partners, Tri-West Development based in Los Angeles, purchased the 2.5 acres adjacent to A Heavenly Home and received the City of Paso Robles’ approvals to build four individually licensed homes for up to 24 residents.
Our Residential Care Facility
The residents will live in individual suites with oversized bedrooms and bathrooms, lots of storage cabinets and adjacent wheel-chair accessible fenced patios. One of the homes has an extra suite for an onsite 24-hour campus administrator. Most meals for the campus homes will be prepared in the home with the largest kitchen, but each home has its own fully equipped kitchen. Heating and refrigeration is uniquely controllable in each room. The hallways are wider than most residential homes for comfortable wheelchair access.
Marco Jimenez served as a firefighter in southern Los Angeles for more than a decade. Regularly the emergency alarm would call the paramedics to an assisted living facility. A plan to create something better for the elderly to live out their senior years with more joy and quality of life began to percolate in his psyche. “Being Cuban and growing up with our grandparents always present and involved in our lives, family is everything,” he said. “There was always a special bond between the grandchildren and grandparents.” Marco enrolled at UCLA to study geriatric psychology. Then in 2014, their extended family had the opportunity to move to Paso Robles and learn firsthand the senior home care business by owning and operating A Heavenly Home (aheavenlyhomepaso.com) at 1920 Prospect Avenue in Paso Robles. First they needed to remodel the residential home to adapt and qualify for the appropriate licensing. Jennifer, Marco’s wife, was already in the health care field and both studied and completed their administrator’s licensing. “Our family lives minutes away, and the first year I was at the home almost 24-hours a day. You learn a lot by being here with the residents,” Marco said.
