Living well and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle is a vital focus for Wichita Presbyterian Manor and many of our residents. We have been pleased to offer aquatic and land classes and the availability of a fitness gym. As an expansion of our health and wellness program, we are excited to announce that in partnership with Aegis Therapies®, we have added a full-time health and wellness director.
Carol Gibbon recently joined our campus in this role and leads all of our wellness programs and classes. She focuses on proactively assisting residents in maintaining independence while living a life they desire, through healthy living presentations and new fitness classes in the aquatic environment and on land.
As a fitness and wellness professional, Carol has experience from college campuses to senior living communities. Her passion is encouraging, engaging and educating people to live more wellness-based and intentional lives. Originally born in Wichita, she grew up in Derby, the youngest of seven children.
Carol loves community service, dogs and being outside. She earned a Master of Science in Sports and Recreational Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Transdisciplinary Childhood Obesity Prevention from South Dakota State University, after completing a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Wichita State University.
Wichita Presbyterian Manor is excited to welcome Carol to our team!
