Exploration and discovery are a vital part of living well and play a key role in healthy aging. In fact, studies show that people who stay stimulated intellectually throughout life are typically happier and healthier.
In addition to art classes, poetry readings, lectures and other regularly scheduled activities, Wichita Presbyterian Manor’s newly renovated Lifelong Learning Center hosts a wealth of resources to keep minds actively engaged. Besides an extensive library of books and digital media, residents have access to two touch-screen computers featuring PointerWare software and oversized keyboards. Our Dakim BrainFitness program is the only clinically tested brain fitness software designed specifically for active adults over 60. More than 300 hours of vivid graphics, music, humor, movie clips, stories and trivia keep the program interesting, engaging and, most of all, fun. The program’s stimulating brain exercises are designed to help improve memory, focus and concentration while fighting the threat of cognitive decline.
Beyond the learning opportunities available on campus, Wichita Presbyterian Manor offers a regular schedule of tours and day trips. As active participants in Senior Wednesdays, we routinely visit art galleries, museums, zoos, theaters and other cultural venues in Wichita and neighboring communities.
In addition, we offer Just Ask educational sessions to the general public as well as our residents, presenting the latest information on topics of interest to older adults.
