Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor offers a dedicated memory care neighborhood, providing services and compassion for the ever-changing needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia. We provide specialty programs designed to engage the mind and provide purpose, as well as plenty of social opportunities for residents and their loved ones.
Our parent company, PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®), has long been a leader in memory care within the senior living industry, and we work hard to stay on the forefront—offering both our residents and their families peace of mind. In fact, what we hear most from families is that they were surprised to see how well their loved one adapted to life at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor.
For example, PMMA has committed to training staff in all of its communities in the Positive Approach to Care (PAC) method developed by renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow. When you combine that with other specialty programs and socialization opportunities our memory care stands out from the rest.
Memory Care at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor recognizes that every resident is different. With 24-hour staffing and an individually tailored plan for care, we are able to focus on wellness in all its aspects.
In addition to engaging the mind with stimulating activities, our skilled staff is here to promote physical and emotional well-being, all in a comfortable, nurturing environment. While there is no cure for the memory loss that comes from Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, our integrated approach to care can help our residents thrive.

If your loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, he or she will benefit from placement in a memory care neighborhood. Memory care neighborhoods are specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with memory loss, providing visual cues that will support your loved one in making the transition from home to a senior living community. Memory care also offers activities individually and in smaller groups that are designed to help a memory care resident reconnect with what they enjoyed earlier in their lives and keep them engaged in the present.

Joining a memory care neighborhood earlier can help provide the necessary structure and mental stimulation seniors with brain changes such as memory loss need. The social engagement and specialty care programs help seniors make the most of their daily lives. We have found that families are often surprised by how well their loved ones do once they move into the community.
