Our philosophy at Salina Presbyterian Manor is that residents in every level of care should enjoy the way they want to live. To achieve this, we have developed a robust range of programs and activities that promote “holistic wellness.” When seniors are able to focus on physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth, they remain vital and are able to make the most of every day.
Below is just a sampling of the programs and activities that Salina Presbyterian Manor has to offer.
From Saturday movie nights to potlucks and coffee clubs, there’s always something going on at Salina Presbyterian Manor. Take a look at our calendars to see what we’ve got cooking.
Our popular wellness programs are a major hub of activity for all levels of care at Salina Presbyterian Manor.

What age do you have to be to start creating amazing works of art? At Salina Presbyterian Manor, you’re free to express yourself, and invest in what makes you special. We encourage you to discover and nurture your creative side through our popular and award-winning Art is Ageless® program.
Salina Presbyterian Manor affords residents countless opportunities to practice their faith as they choose. With an onsite chaplain and chapel, we host a variety of worship services each week, and regularly invite visiting pastors to perform services. We are proud of our Presbyterian background, but respect people of all faiths and try to foster spiritual life for everyone.
Our residents love taking advantage of continuing education opportunities such as our “Share Your Life” writing project or our monthly “Art Discovery” parties. Our popular Just Ask Lifelong Learning Series offers educational events on topics of interest to seniors in the broader community as well as our residents. A few of our other educational opportunities include library services, cultural and social enrichment activities, resident special interest groups and more. Check our events and activities calendars to see what’s coming up.
We regularly feature activities involving young people. Whether it’s a youth choir performance and visit, an ongoing program with a local school or regular activities with a local preschool, these pairings of the young and the aged are not by happenstance: there are bona fide benefits for the kids, the seniors and the community. For seniors, the positive effects include health benefits.
Musical memory is profoundly linked to emotions. In fact, our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory, and beloved music often calms chaotic brain activity and helps the listener regain connections in the present. Our certified Music & Memory® program taps into this special human attribute. Personalized music playlists, delivered using iPods and other digital audio devices, transform the quality of life for seniors struggling with a range of physical and cognitive impairments.
In addition to hosting special campus events, we provide a regular schedule of day trips and off-site special events, including the popular Smoky Hill River Festival every June, periodic “Salina Sights” tours, visits to museums and other cultural venues in Salina, Kansas, and much more.
