The decision to move into a long-term care neighborhood can be overwhelming and difficult. At Emporia 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.

What value can Long-Term Care provide my loved one? I don’t want to feel as if I am giving up on them by placing them in a “home.”

Our mission is to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values. We embrace this mission throughout all levels of care on our campus and provide the adequate levels of support to our residents that allow them to live a better quality of life. Without proper care, nutrition, spiritual, mental, physical and social wellbeing, one truly cannot be successful and say they are living with the utmost quality of life. At our community we provide services to people during all stages of life, including long term care, that allow them to diminish their stressors and focus on the things that are most important to them. Whether this be socializing, art, music, education or spiritual practice, without the stressors related to needing 24/7 care and help that is much needed being provided, our residents are able to thrive in an environment that supports them appropriately.

What are my Long-Term Care options?

We offer 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 and level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

Do you have a wait list?

Yes. To get on the wait list, you must submit a long-term application for residency.

Do you take Medicaid?

We accept Medicaid-approved residents in our health care center.

Will Medicare or Medicaid cover the cost?

Medicare only covers therapy services, not room and board for any level of care. Medicaid covers long-term care room and board expenses only.

What types of security do you offer?

Doors are locked, and security key codes are required for entry and exit. Residents are fully supervised.

What do residents or their loved ones need to provide?

Emporia Presbyterian Manor provides the bed, glider, TV, nightstand and dresser. Residents or their loved ones will need to provide clothes, personal items, décor and any additional furniture.

What are your visiting hours?

Our long-term care neighborhood is 24-hour secure facility, but visitors are welcome and encouraged any time, day or night.

Can couples live in Long-Term Care together?

Yes! Couples do have the option to live together. Contact us to discuss what this option might look like for you or your loved one.

Can my loved one go on outings?

Yes! You have the peace of mind to know that our trained team members can help you determine whether an outing is appropriate for your loved one or not on a given day.

Can I still take my loved one out to eat or to family celebrations?

Of course! The goal of long-term care is to provide our residents with quality services so our families, friends and residents can focus on the important things in life, including family, social and spiritual opportunities, without concern about safety, nutrition and health.

Do you provide activities for residents?
