“Through word of mouth and friends, my sister was aware of the top-notch reputation and wonderful proximity of Aegis Corte Madera. Upon visiting and evaluating a number of different facilities in Marin and San Francisco, it became crystal clear that Aegis was not only price competitive, but had the right feel for our mother and entire family. We knew that it would not only be her new home, but one where our entire family could feel welcome, too. Aegis offered so much more for our mother than we could have provided for her by keeping her in the family home with a single caretaker. We knew that as social as my mother is, that it would be best for her to be in an environment filled with friendly people, lively activities and music — and that’s how I describe Aegis Corte Madera. Candice, our family’s specific needs and nuances were accommodated, listened to and met. We thank you!
“On any given day, you can walk into the warm lobby and be greeted warmly and with a smile by Jennifer Newman. David Starr, Culinary Director, and Praxi, the sous chef, consistently provide a variety of menu items, along with fresh produce, meats and fish, cooked with sumptuous and healthy sauces. Fabio, Norma, Sandra and George, the dining room servers, provide excellent service with lots of laughs. Because each knows the types of food my mom likes and dislikes, this makes her feel right at home. Visitors are welcome to dine at any time, which we do, and we appreciate that the pricing for the meals is very reasonable.
“Having said all this, the most valuable asset to the Aegis Corte Madera family, and integral to our decision, is Gail Gongoll, the Assisted Living Activity Director. Because of Gail, Aegis has an incredibly positive pulse and high energy level. Gail diligently schedules and promotes a wonderful variety of exercise, music, song, dance, art, sing-along, bingo and word game activities. The consistently fresh variety of musical talent, educational slide shows, discussion groups and lectures keeps my mom busy and engaged.”
