 Manor History

Immacolata Manor Established in 1981, Immacolata Manor – originally Broadacres, the country estate of Joseph and Della Bruening – was purchased by a number of families who had daughters with developmental disabilities. The Benedictine Sisters of Kansas City were engaged as caretakers until their retirement in 1997. In 1999, the first off campus independent supported living (ISL) residence opened as the Manor began its efforts to integrate individuals more fully into the life of the community. To date, 5 additional ISL apartments and houses have been added throughout the community. The main house and carriage house were the residences for 28 women until capital campaigns in 2001 and 2006 were successful in raising over $2,000,000 to build 5 fully accessible homes. Today, the Main House is used for administrative purposes.

In September 1986, the newly constructed Broadacres Recreation Center opened to provide a safe, comfortable space for the residents to participate in year-round activities designed to enhance their health, education and quality of life. In January 2000, My Day, the Manor’s community integration and day habilitation program opened in the Broadacres facility and in July 2013, a second My Day location opened in downtown Liberty, Missouri.

Today, the Manor serves 68 men and women with developmental disabilities (68 in day programs; 40 in residential programs) whose ages range from 19 to 94 years of age. Both the Immacolata Manor Residential Program and the My Day Community Integration Program are CARF accredited.

 

 

Residential: Community Housing/Supported Living

IM currently provides direct care via residential services to 40 adult individuals in Clay County. Direct Support Professionals provide hands-on care for these individuals, assisting with a broad range of personal assistance including preparation of meals, cleaning, administering medications, bathing, dressing, mobility, and transportation to planned activities on a daily basis.
Services include: room and board, residential habilitation,case coordination, transportation, health care coordination, nutrition, personal care and hygiene, fully trained and qualified staff, grounds and building maintenance and facility safety.

 

My Day: Community Integration/Day Habilitation

My Day is a long-standing contracted program that receives Medicaid dollars to provide day habilitation and community integration to individuals benefiting from the program. Annual individual goals are established for and with each person served, in coordination with their family/guardian, Service Coordinator and IM Staff. The overall goal is to help each person explore new interests and to expand on their past successes. By providing a lower-than-average ratio of staff to participants, many who are severely involved or who have not been supported in other programs thrive in this environment. A major goal is to help people retain and enhance their skills, or at a minimum to retain and not allow their skills to decline due to age or health factors.
The size of this program has grown steadily over the years, as we focus on assisting adults in maintaining and retaining their daily help skills in areas of independence, memory, communications, personal hygiene and daily living.
On weekdays, people from Clay and Platte Counties participate in activities such as: life skills; communication skills; reading, writing and math skills; volunteering; involvement with Special Olympics; performing and visual arts; leisure and outdoor activities; cooking; computer skills and games; participation in sports, games and exercise; spiritual care; friendship building; involvement with local senior citizen and day care centers; library visits; dining skills and manners; multiple community outings; family contact; personal care; money skills; interaction with animals; and recycling.
