Newton Presbyterian Manor earned a zero-deficiency survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its assisted living inspection in July.
Senior living communities that offer assisted living are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care.
“Every day I see our employees go above and beyond in the care they provide,” said Marc Kessinger, executive director. “This recognition is tangible proof of our commitment to providing quality senior care and services based on Christian values. The way you want to live is more than a tagline for Newton Presbyterian Manor; it is a culture built on the understanding of compassionate service to seniors—a foundation of trust for families and their loved ones.”
Newton Presbyterian Manor is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Its assisted living neighborhood, which is licensed by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services, is inspected every 12 to 18 months to ensure quality of care. Residents have their own private residences and may receive some assistance with activities of daily living.
