Frequently Asked Questions
Making decisions about how — and where — you want to live often raises some important questions. That’s why we encourage you to “Just Ask.” You’ll find our staff at Emporia Presbyterian Manor eager to provide the information you need to make informed choices.
Here are the three questions (faqs) we’re asked most often:
- What is included in my monthly rate? Your monthly service fee covers a variety of costs common for all residents. These can include meals, utilities, 24-hour emergency response system, housekeeping and linen service, and interior and exterior maintenance. However, rates vary depending on your level of care, the type of accommodations you select, and a variety of other factors. We can provide you with an Admissions Packet that includes a detailed list of services and rates along with a helpful Guide to help you compare the real cost difference between living in your own home and moving to Emporia Presbyterian Manor.
- Will Medicare and/or other insurance providers help pay for the services we need? Some of the services we provide are billable to Medicare, depending on the living level and the most recent hospitalizations. For a more definite answer, a Presbyterian Manor representative will be able to advise you based on your individual circumstances.
- Do you have any openings? Although we frequently do have openings for new residents, we really can’t answer this question until we know what you’re looking for. With multiple levels of care and a wide range of services and amenities to choose from, Emporia Presbyterian Manor truly offers the opportunity to “live the way you want to live.” Once we have a chance to visit with you in person and determine what that way is, we’ll know whether or not an opening is available.
- How do I know if my loved one needs memory care? If your loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, he or she will benefit from placement in a memory care neighborhood. Memory care neighborhoods are specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with memory loss, providing visual cues that will support your loved one in making the transition from home to a senior living community. Memory care neighborhoods also offer activities in smaller groups and individually that are designed to help a memory care resident reconnect with activities they enjoyed earlier in their lives and keep them engaged in the present through participation in those activities. If you are unsure if your loved one is ready for memory care, check out this resource from the Alzheimer's Association, Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's Disease.
