As a PMMA campus, Topeka Presbyterian Manor is committed to resident-centered care, which means our staff members strive to ensure residents are able to make choices about how they spend their day, what they eat and what activities they engage in from the time they get up in the morning until they go to bed at night, on the resident's timetable. Our team of staff members support our residents in maintaining a sense of independence, while monitoring for when more, or less, assistance is needed.
Our residents play a role in shaping the lifestyle at Topeka Presbyterian Manor. Our Resident Council meets regularly to share ideas, concerns and suggestions with administration and department directors. The role of the council underscores our residents' responsibility for their own well-being and upholds resident rights.
In addition, the community is represented by a number of separate committees which oversee specific areas of life at Topeka Manor:
- Dining committee – is responsible for reviewing the monthly menu, pinpointing likes and dislikes, and offering suggestions for menu additions or changes.
- Activity committee – provides input on activities planning and disseminates information to residents.
- Spiritual life committee – supports the various worship activities on campus and the functions of the chapel.
- Manor shop committee – oversees the operations of our on-site "convenience store."
- Library committee – oversees the operations and offerings of our on-site library.
Quality assurance measures are integrated with Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America's mission and are evident at all levels of the organization. Every PMMA community participates in Quality Assessment Performance Improvement (QAPI), taking a team approach to improving processes, procedures and outcomes.
Residents and employees are surveyed annually and plans are developed at each location to address any concerns.
