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

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

    When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an assisted living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate assisted living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an assisted living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with assisted living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.

  • What are my Assisted Living options?

    We offer studios and suites.

  • How far are you from the doctor’s offices/hospital?

    We are less than a mile from doctor’s offices and the hospital. We have transportation services available for you as a resident.

  • Do you have openings, you are always full?

    Availability varies by season and year. Contact us today to see what we currently have available.

  • Do you have 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. We can help you in planning. We will 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?

    Monthly assisted living fees begin at $3,900 per month, based on floor plan and level of services needed. Double occupancy is available beginning at $2,425 per person. Fees vary based on level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Do I have to disclose all of my finances?

    No. We need to see enough that we feel confident you can afford private pay senior living for the foreseeable future, but this does not require full disclosure of your finances.

  • Do you take Medicaid?

    Medicaid does not apply to assisted living.

  • What types of security do you offer?

    In assisted living, a team member is onsite 24/7. We also have cameras and alarms across our campus for added protection. Our main campus doors are locked between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. daily.

  • Do you offer a meal plan?

    Dining is an important component of our culture at Clay Center 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.

  • What are my transportation options?

    If you have been driving before you move into Clay Center Presbyterian Manor, you may continue to drive. We also provide scheduled transportation.

  • Are pets allowed?

    We know pets are important, but we really want the opportunity to give our attention to you and care for you, so your pet friends must live elsewhere—but may come visit any time.

  • What types of assistance do you provide?

    We are here to help with most aspects of daily life. All meals are covered under the monthly fee, as are medication management, and a call system for immediate needs.

  • What kind of furniture should I bring?

    A good starting point is your bed, recliner, dresser, end table, television and a lamp. Then build out from there. Many find that they like to have a mini fridge and microwave in their room as well. Don’t forget wall decorations, too!

  • Are there activities to participate in?

    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.
