At Salina Presbyterian Manor, "The way you want to live" isn't just a philosophy — it's our promise to help you enjoy a vibrant and supported life at any age. Guided by Christian values, we offer a full range of Long-Term Care services, including Respite Care, Skilled Nursing and Hospice.

Memory Care: Nurturing Cognitive Well-Being

What Is Memory Care?

Memory Care is a specialized type of long-term care designed to meet the needs of individuals facing cognitive challenges, often associated with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. At Salina Presbyterian Manor, The Morrison Center is our dedicated Memory Care neighborhood where seniors facing memory loss have access to personalized care and specialized services in a secure, supportive environment.

Benefits of Memory Care

The goal of Memory Care is to support the cognitive health and emotional well-being of seniors diagnosed with memory disorders. Caregivers receive specialized training to better understand the challenges that accompany dementia and learn techniques for delivering personalized, compassionate care. By providing structured routines, Memory Care allows individuals to attain a sense of consistency and familiarity in their daily lives, minimizing feelings of stress and confusion that often accompany memory loss. When it comes to dementia, environment also plays a key role in well-being. The Morrison Center is a fully secured space that reduces the risk of wandering and features an open, easy-to-navigate layout that allows our residents to maintain their independence.

When Is Memory Care Most Beneficial?

Memory Care becomes important when a loved one’s condition starts to impact their ability to perform daily tasks independently, putting their health and safety at risk. With 24/7 supervision and personalized care, Memory Care at Salina Presbyterian Manor allows those with cognitive conditions to lead active, fulfilling lives while ensuring their cognitive, physical and emotional needs are fully supported.
