Ingleside derives its name from founder, Shirley Barratt’s historical family estate in Australia.
Shirley’s aunt and owner of the estate developed dementia in the early 1950s in an era when the only option was institutionalization. Aunt Fan lived only 30 days after being committed to an institution where her hair was cut off and she was isolated, bruised and mistreated. Ingleside Assisted Living, Inc. is built in loving memory of Aunty Fan and the desire to provide the specialized loving care that she should have received.
Shirley Barratt and Randy Vaughn bring a unique blend of abilities and experience to make the magic that is Ingleside. Expertise in elder care, hospitality, teaching and finance - both domestically and abroad, a great love of people and a desire to serve, provide a solid foundation for this five-star facility. Shirley, a native Australian, has been a central coast resident for more than 25 years. Randy, originally from Texas, has relocated to the central coast after years of international work.
Ingleside has a proven history of providing exceptional care for seniors. Ingleside was established in 2008 and has grown from one community to three, with a total of 33 residents. Both Randy and Shirley have over a decade of senior care experience. Over the years Ingleside has developed a caring environment that provides consistent, loving service to our residents and families. Ingleside hires and develops the best caregivers the central coast has to offer. Ingleside constantly strives for improvement, and it is comforting for the families to know their loved ones are in a stable, established community.
