Channing House is a not-profit corporation located close to downtown Palo Alto. It provides a first-rate living environment for its residents, evidenced in many facets of the building: the soaring ceilings in the lobby, an exercise room furnished with specialized equipment, a four-season swimming pool, and auditorium with state-of-the-art sound equipment are all designed to enhance residents’ quality of life by making them comfortable and keeping them active.Apartment types range from studios to two-bedroom, two-bath apartments. All have nice views; some are downright spectacular. Not surprisingly, the view from the top floor of this eleven-story facility takes one’s breath away. The floor is a designated common area for everyone to enjoy, and is an oasis of calm. Sharing the space is a resident-run art studio that takes advantage of the natural light as well as the quiet; painting seems to be the primary pursuit. There is a wide variety of activities, including piano concerts in the lobby, ice cream socials, computer classes, movies (Peter Sellers is always popular), and Reminiscences and Life Stories classes.All individuals accepted for entry to Channing House must be between the ages of sixty-two and eighty-two, and must be able to live independently. Since the facility is licensed to provide assisted living, additional assistance can be provided as a person’s needs change. Only those who are already residents of this facility are eligible for admission to the skilled nursing facility component. This is a popular facility, so there is a long waiting list for entrance: it is definitely necessary to plan ahead.
