Casa Muriel – Senior Living Residence in Antigua, Guatemala

This year, there are thousands of foreign-born permanent residents in Guatemala who are over 65 years of age. The need is obvious, for an independent living, active retirement home and senior health resource center in or around Antigua. It is our mission to create that senior living center as a comfortable home, with all the elements of a healthy, satisfying lifestyle provided for our residents while maintaining their independence and freedom to choose. As the years pass, our abilities decline and medical needs change. Imagine if all the personal and medical attention these folks needed were available in a full-service active retirement home in Antigua. That is our plan for Casa Muriel.


The Casa Muriel Lifestyle

OUR NURSES

University trained RN’s and local certified nurse assistants offer medical advice and hands-on attention every day, to assure your well-being, dignity, and peace of mind.

OUR RESIDENTS

Some came to Guatemala with the Peace Corps in the 60’s, or as academics in the 80’s, or as retiree volunteers in the 2000’s. This is their home, and now they deserve our helping hands.

THE PROPERTY

Antigua Guatemala has the perfect weather and comforting volcano views that we adore. Casa Muriel will be constructed in 2020 with the safety and happiness of seniors in mind.

SOCIAL EVENTS

Holidays, birthdays and weekends are occasions for celebration, so invite your friends to parties, dances, concerts and card games. Make this day a source of joy and appreciation.


EXCELLENT MEALS

Breakfast buffet, family-style meals and healthy snacks are prepared and served by restaurant professionals in our kitchen and with herbs and vegetables from our organic garden.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Get the blood flowing to initiate healing and to keep your mind and body active every day. From tai chi and yoga to cardio and zumba, we’ll help you reach your fitness goals.

SPIRITUAL REFLECTION

Participate in services, traditions and meditation with the community of your chosen faith. Unitarian, Jewish, Buddhist, Mayan, Pagan, Christian, and all spiritual groups are invited.

DISCUSSION GROUPS

We will schedule classes and informal groups to learn about photography, sailing, pets, popular books, international travel, etc. Unlimited topics to initiate friendships and learning.


COMMUNITY INTERACTION

Following European models, young adults receive free housing in exchange for interaction with our residents. Meals, computer classes, storytelling, and exercise can all be shared.

MEDICAL PROVIDERS

Through our collaboration with Guatemala Medical Travel, Casa Muriel provides check-ups, vaccines, labs, therapy sessions, and global quality procedures in all specialties.

LEGAL & FINANCIAL

It’s important to keep your immigration status, legal, and banking requirements up to date. Rules change and you could be vulnerable. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that for you.

SAFETY & SECURITY

Your physical comfort and safety are primary. We discuss long- and short-term goals for your medical care, and your family is encouraged to communicate and participate.


THE GARDENS

We are cultivating nourishment for our friends and pride in our harvest. Organic vegetables, fresh herbs and mature fruit trees are right there by the kitchen of our home.

PET THERAPY

Well-behaved cats and dogs are part of our family at Casa Muriel. Purring, petting, and cuddling reduce blood pressure, and there is plenty of unconditional love for everyone.

MEDICAL INSURANCE

Are you happy with the medical insurance coverage you have now? Let’s work together with reliable agents to find the plan that’s best for you, right now, before you need it.

TRANSPORTATION

Guatemalan transportation services are friendly, safe, prompt, and economical. Your favorite taxi and shuttle drivers spend the time to make the journey a pleasure.


Our Goals for Casa Muriel

We believe that having a solid sense of community and the freedom from household responsibilities, plus a helping hand from our nursing staff, will give our residents the independence they want, and the confidence to expand horizons to their greatest potential.

Casa Muriel can qualify success when foreign residents living in Guatemala City, Antigua, Lago de Atitlan and Rio Dulce view our adult community home as a source of comfort, social activity and physical well-being, thus a reliable destination for their own future, for temporary nursing care or as a long-term residence.
