Casa Muriel Retirement Home

A home environment, vibrant lifestyle, and compassionate care for our senior community.

Casa Muriel – Senior Living Residence in Antigua

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 community and senior health
resource center in Antigua. Our goal is for every resident of Casa Muriel to say,
"What a relief! I don’t have to worry about that anymore.”

Casa Muriel, Phase I

The home is open and accepting new residents now, with spacious rooms, 24/7 nursing, delicious meals, and activities to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. Come visit us for a tour. We would love to meet you.

Casa Muriel, Phase II

New construction of the 30-unit Casa Muriel assisted living senior center will include all the architectural design elements to keep older folks mobile and confident while loved ones enjoy the peace of mind for their safety, comfort, and social activity.

All the elements of a healthy, satisfying lifestyle will be provided for our residents and full-day members while maintaining their independence and freedom to choose. Some residents will enjoy storytelling, lively personal interactions, and good humor among friends while others prefer to savor quiet time at home or in the lush gardens.
