Experience Sterling Presbyterian Manor

Sterling Presbyterian Manor, a not-for-profit continuing care community, offers the flexibility to meet our residents’ needs as they evolve. Our continuum of care encompasses independent living, short-term rehabilitation, and health care with skilled nursing. In 2014, we unveiled transitional living, a unique level of care for those who do not yet need full-time nursing care.

Accommodations range from individual apartments to two-bedroom cottages. Residents enjoy an array of amenities including restaurant-style dining, scheduled transportation, hair salon, library, and non-denominational chapel. The Sterling business district just a few blocks away offers numerous shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities, with expanded recreational and cultural venues available in nearby Hutchinson.

Independent Living residents may also take advantage of “pet-friendly” accommodations, garage and Sterling Senior Citizen Center. 

Sterling Presbyterian Manor has been awarded the highest rating (five stars) for quality care from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the government agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes and has been recognized by the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care for meeting goals in reducing the use of anti-psychotic medications prescribed for residents living with dementia.

Our beautifully landscaped 10-acre community is located adjacent to the Sterling College campus. In addition to offering a rich array of cultural and educational opportunities, the college pool gives residents a chance to enjoy additional health, wellness and recreational activities.

Our residents, too, play a role in informing and guiding the operations of Sterling Presbyterian Manor. They are represented by the elected members of our resident council. Its purpose is to provide a means for all residents to share ideas, concerns and suggestions with administration and department directors. The council underscores the residents’ responsibility for their own well-being and upholds resident rights.

Since its founding in 1949, our parent company, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, has grown to become one of the nation’s top 26th largest non-profit senior living organizations serving more than 2,500 residents in 17 Kansas and Missouri communities.


Sterling Presbyterian Manor’s history begins in 1953 when Home of the Plains was established by members of the local Presbyterian community to care for the aging population in Sterling, Kansas.

Three years later, this simple three-story white frame house became the second in what today is a network of 18 Kansas and Missouri senior living communities operated by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.

While Sterling Presbyterian Manor today is far different from the single white frame structure that opened half a century ago, our core values still shine forth in the care given to our residents, and in the reiteration of our pledge to provide Christian-based retirement living and health care, through a continuum of care, dedicated to the values of service, respect, dignity and independence.
