Find Out What You Need to Know

The decision to move into a long-term care neighborhood can be overwhelming and difficult. At Wichita Presbyterian Manor, we work hard to help you or your loved one with the transition. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in our long-term care neighborhood. If there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • 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.

  • How long have been here?

    Wichita Presbyterian Manor opened in 1970. Presbyterian Manor of Mid-America opened in 1949, when our first location opened in Newton.

  • Do you have all levels of living?

    Yes. We are a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), also known as a Life Plan Community. We have independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term care and short-term rehabilitation.

  • What are my Long-Term Care options?

    We offer private and semi-private residences where residents can receive qualified, around-the-clock nursing care.

  • What is the difference between Long-Term Care and Assisted Living?

    Assisted living residents are more independent. Our assisted living residents may be able to perform more activities and can get around as they like. They may need help with certain tasks, such as housework or bathing, but they can perform many tasks on their own. Long-term care is a solution for seniors who need much more help from a dedicated caregiver, with tasks such as getting in and out of chairs, moving around and more.

  • What professional medical care do you offer?

    Our health services team is top-of-the-line. We have a dedicated skilled nursing team of RNs, LPNs and CNAs who provide 24-hour nursing care. We also offer a variety of physical, occupational and speech therapies customized to individual care plans.

  • How do your fees work?

    Monthly long-term care fees are determined by the type of residence, private or semi-private. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Do you accept Medicaid?

    We are licensed for and accept Medicaid-approved residents in long-term care. Most long-term care beds are filled internally by our own residents who are moving through the continuum.

  • Does Medicare cover expenses for Long-Term Care?

    Medicare does not cover long-term care.

  • Are there ancillary expenses?

    Additional expenses are minimal. One of the most common additional expenses is for incontinence products, if needed.
