Sunset Manor General Information

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.

Read about our services that will make you feel right at home.
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, and
  • Involvement in decision-making

About the Facility

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 home. These special touches help the resident adjust to their new living arrangements. (If sharing a room with another resident, please remember that possessions cannot take up more than the resident’s half of the room.)

General Information


Smoking and Use of Tobacco

All Coffey Health System premises, including Sunset Manor, are tobacco-free. Tobacco use of any kind is prohibited – both inside and outside – by employees, residents, and visitors. Our tobacco-free policy is intended to create a healthier environment for our residents, visitors, and staff.

Laundry

Emphasis is placed on the appearance of our residents. It is important to residents, family, and staff that each resident is clean, comfortable, and well-dressed. Provision of clothing is the responsibility of the resident and/or the resident’s representative. Specific clothing recommendations are provided during the application process.

All resident clothing must be labeled with the resident’s name in an inconspicuous place with sew-in labels or indelible ink even if family/friends are doing resident laundry. 

Personal Property

We encourage residents to bring personal possessions including some furnishings and appropriate clothing as space permits. Every effort will be made to protect the resident’s personal items from loss or damage while he or she is a resident.

A written inventory of the resident’s personal possessions, signed by the resident or the resident’s legal representative shall be completed at the time of admission and updated at least annually.
All personal effects brought to any resident must be brought to the nurses’ station and checked with the nurse in charge before delivery to the resident. The nurse will label each item and record them in the inventory.

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

 

Extension cords and power strips

Electrical extension cords are not permitted in the facility. Power strips may only be used with lamps, computers, telephones, televisions, and radios. It is recommended that you consult with the housekeeping/maintenance department prior to connecting any electrical appliance to an outlet.
