Health & Wellness Services

More Than Memory

More than Memory is designed for individuals living with cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or Parkinson’s disease. Memory is an important function of our brain, but it’s not the only one. Demand more from your brain!

More Than Memory  is a 6-week immersive course that...

  • Uses an integrative arts approach to learning and teaching.
  • Combines cognitive skill-building with physical exercise.
  • Educates strategies to support all seven of our cognitive functions: Reasoning, Memory, Language, Attention, Visual Spatial, Learning, and Executive Functioning.

More Than Memory is one class offered through the Luther Manor Adult Day Services education opportunity The Engagement Insititute. For more information or to register, please contact please contact Ellen Mutter, Director of Adult Day Services, at (414) 464-3888, ext. 314 or

Senior Ministry Partnership Initiative

Luther Manor offers the expertise of our staff members to our partner congregations through the Senior Ministry Partnership Initiative (SMPI). Through the SMPI, our partner congregations are equipped with the education, resources and funding to respond to the changing and complex profile of maturing Christians. The initiative began in 2007 with an educational symposium and continues through consultation with and support of our congregational partners.

Parish nurse program

Luther Manor offers the services of parish nurses at several of our partner congregations. Parish nurses help maturing adults, their families and congregational members embrace health and wholeness. Parish nurses and their health ministry assist congregations to reclaim the Gospel message to teach, preach and heal. As a member of the partnering congregation’s staff, they connect those they serve to community resources that promote healthy living, train volunteers, and provide education and personal health counseling.

Luther Manor sponsors and co-sponsors support groups for seniors, family members and caregivers. Convenient meeting times and locations allow participants to share experiences, strength and hope. The support group meets the first Tuesday of every month from 1:30 to 3 p.m. For information about the support groups held at Luther Manor, please contact Ellen Mutter, Director of Adult Day Services, at (414) 464-3888, ext. 314 or
