Find Out What You Need to Know

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

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

    Seniors often reach a point where they think about rightsizing. Their house may be more than they want or, for some, able to handle. They might start thinking it would be fun to sell the lawn mower and move somewhere maintenance-free. The ideal time to move into an independent living community is when you feel the itch to change things up, but when you are still active enough to enjoy the lifestyle benefits of a senior living community.

  • What are my Independent Living options?

    We offer beautiful studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as townhomes.

  • Do you have additional storage?

    We do offer smaller storage areas, or for additional storage, we can direct you to convenient storage units nearby. In addition, we can provide expert assistance in rightsizing. A move of this kind usually requires anticipating future needs and making some tough decisions about furnishings and possessions. In truth, you most likely spend the majority of your time in just a few rooms of your house. We can help you in planning. We’ll work with you personally to ensure the choices you make are right for you and consistent with the way you want live.

  • How do your fees work? Is it a buy-in or a monthly fee?

    Monthly independent living fees begin at $1,329 per month, depending on the residence and finance option selected. Our campus offers two options: an entrance fee with a lower monthly fee, or a higher monthly fee without an entrance fee. Second person fees apply for double occupancy in Trusler Plaza Apartments. Rates and monthly fees are subject to periodic review. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Will Medicare or Medicaid cover my stay?

    Medicare only covers therapy services, not room and board for any level of care. Medicaid covers long-term care room and board expenses only. It does not cover room and board for independent living or assisted living.

  • What types of security do you offer?

    We have monitors on all entrances and exits. Independent living and assisted living entry is via a keycode.

  • Do you offer a meal plan?

    Dining is an important component of our culture at Emporia Presbyterian Manor. We offer flexible meal plans with seasonal and always-available menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner so you can choose what you’d like to eat. One meal is included in independent living, with additional dining available.

  • Is there parking?

    Yes, parking is available for independent living residents. We have optional carports.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes, we allow pets in independent living. Residents may have one dog or cat, two birds, and/or fish.

  • Are there social opportunities or activities in Independent Living?

    Absolutely! We offer activities, a vibrant social life, cultural outings, shopping trips, and more. Check out our programs or calendars to see some of what’s going on.

  • Can I still come and go as I please?

    Of course! We encourage our residents to go on day trips or take vacations as they please. Independent living is designed to allow you to live an active lifestyle without the stress of home maintenance or repairs, housekeeping, or even meal preparation.
