Our philosophy at Rolla Presbyterian Manor is that residents in every level of care should enjoy living the way they want to live. To achieve this, we have developed a robust range of programs and activities that promote “holistic wellness.” When seniors are able to focus on physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth, they remain vital and are able to make the most of every day.

Rolla Presbyterian Manor affords residents countless opportunities to practice their faith as they choose. We host a variety of worship services each week, and regularly invite visiting pastors to perform services.

Our residents love taking advantage of continuing education opportunities such as painting and card-making classes. Our popular Just Ask Lifelong Learning Series offers educational events on topics of interest to seniors in the broader community as well as our residents. A few of our other educational opportunities include library services, cultural and social enrichment activities, resident special interest groups and more.

We regularly feature activities involving young people. Whether it’s a youth choir performance and visit, an ongoing program with a local school or regular activities with a local preschool, these pairings of the young and the aged are not by happenstance: there are bona fide benefits for the kids, the seniors and the community. For seniors, the positive effects include health benefits.
Musical memory is profoundly linked to emotions. In fact, our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory, and beloved music often calms chaotic brain activity and helps the listener regain connections in the present. Our certified Music & Memory® program taps into this special human attribute. Personalized music playlists, delivered using iPods and other digital audio devices, transform the quality of life for seniors struggling with a range of physical and cognitive impairments.
In addition to hosting special campus events, we provide a regular schedule of day trips and off-site special events. Rolla, Missouri, offers a wealth of things to do, from enjoying the great outdoors to museums, wineries and arts and theatre events.
