The new culture of aging calls on us to respect the power of community and interdependence.  The new role of leadership is to ensure participation by elders in decision making; or moving ownership of decision making as close to the elder relationship as possible.  Each of us must work deeply on our own journey of aging, transforming our traditional fears and uncertainties into a hopeful, joyful embrace of who we are and our understanding our new capacities for growth and giving. 

Sunset Manor’s goal is to promote quality of life, self-image, and independence.  Resident-centered care is the basis of Sunset Manor’s care delivery system.  We believe that the resident and his/her family should be guaranteed the following:

  • Continuity of past life patterns and preferences,
  • Consistency in caregiver’s approach and expectations,
  • Respect for personal values and beliefs,
  • Involvement in decision-making, and
  • Support in decreasing or eliminating those things that impede quality of life.
Meal Service

The staff at Sunset Manor invites prospective residents and their family to enjoy a meal with us as our guests when you tour the facility.  We are very proud of our food service.  At certain times of the day the aroma of food cooking helps stimulate the appetite.  

Residents are served breakfast in the dining room as they awaken.  They select their meal preference from a varied menu and it is cooked to order.  

Dinner and supper are served restaurant-style.  The resident may choose from several entrées, as well as from a selection of vegetables, salad bar, deserts, and drinks.  

We invite and encourage family members to join their loved one for a meal at any time for a small fee.  If more than two people will be joining use, please kindly give advanced notice so we can prepare accordingly.

For those who enjoy nostalgia, a meal in our 1950’s-themed diner will be a pleasurable experience.  The diner can also be reserved for gatherings.  

ALL FOOD ITEMS KEPT IN A RESIDENT’S ROOM MUST BE CHECKED-IN AT THE NURSES’ STATION, AND KEPT IN A CLOSED PLASTIC CONTAINER LABELED WITH RESIDENTS NAME AND DATE.

About the Facility

The “family” of residents living at Sunset Manor is as important to our staff as your personal family is to you.  We assure them the opportunity to become part of a larger community including a caring staff, the other residents, and an involved community of caring people.

Sunset Manor opened in March of 1977.  Since Coffey Health System purchased the facility in 1997, many changes have taken place.  A major renovation was completed in 2001 including the addition of a new entry, living room, laundry room, and storage space. Other renovations included updating the kitchen, dining room, and nursing station. These changes have helped create a comfortable home-like atmosphere.

Although the resident rooms are small and space is limited, we encourage the resident and family to bring personal items such as pictures, wall hangings, furniture, dresser, favorite chair, TV, radio etc. from the resident’s home.  If sharing a room with another resident, it must be remembered that possessions cannot take up more than the resident’s half of the room. These special touches help the resident adjust to their new living arrangements.
