Our People Make Us Your Most Trusted Choice
Only the nicest, most highly trained and experienced nurses, certified nurse’s aides and support staff will care for you or your loved one.
Prior to ever getting an opportunity to care for any resident at PSH, only the best, fully qualified applicants are considered. Every member of our team has undergone an extensive personal and business background investigation. If the prospective employee is licensed, then we verify that the license is current and the person is in good standing with the licensing agency. A Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) background check is run to verify there are no convictions of adult abuse, neglect, financial exploitation or other offenses that would preclude employment or make the person unfit to work at Prairie Sunset Home. Finally, during our interview process we want to insure that the applicant has a genuine interest in caring for the elderly and most important of all—The Applicant has to be nice!
Short term aggressive/extensive rehabilitation is one of our core competencies. Our teams of therapists are able to successfully rehabilitate residents so that over 60% of them are able to return home. For those that are longer term residents, we often see a dramatic improvement in their functional ability. Generally, there are two of the primary reasons for the sudden improvement. The first reason is because the resident begins to eat well balanced meals every day. Second, the resident is now taking the medication exactly as prescribed by the doctor. When you couple professional rehabilitation, good food, medication management, interesting activities with the therapeutic value of socialization and superior customer service, you find a facility and culture of dignity, respect and independence.

May I Visit Prairie Sunset Home Before Deciding to Move?
Yes! We absolutely encourage you and/or a family member to visit us. The best strategy is to become well informed about the care and services available before they are actually needed. Unfortunately, residents and families wait until they find themselves faced with a medical crisis or illness requiring hospitalization. In those situations, the admission decision is often made under a really compressed timeline with only a day or two to decide, thereby putting both you and us in a tough situation. Advanced notice and well informed decisions are normally better.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has a helpful publication called: “Guide to Choosing a Nursing Home.” That official government booklet explains: How to find and compare nursing homes; How to pay for nursing home care; Your nursing home resident rights; and, where to call for help.
