Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in our assisted living neighborhood. Read on to find out more about Wichita Presbyterian Manor. If there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • When is the right time to move into an Assisted Living community?

    When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an assisted living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate assisted living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an assisted living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with assisted living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.

  • Are you a not-for-profit?

    Yes, Wichita Presbyterian Manor is part of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, a not-for-profit organization that has been serving seniors for more than 70 years. Our not-for-profit organization means that we are able to focus all of our resources on our mission rather than serving shareholders.
