Our mission is to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values.

PMMA’s (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) continuum of care encompasses a full range of residence options – from independent living to assisted living, to skilled nursing care – with the comfort and well-being of each resident our highest priority.

Our employees bring this mission to life with person-centered care and a simple promise, the way you want to live®.

The way you want to live is more than a tagline; it is a culture built on a method of delivering services and care to residents based on the resident’s personal choices and preferences. This social care model, sometimes called “person or resident-centered care” creates a more welcoming and familiar environment for residents.

Here are some pertinent facts about PMMA®:

  • Non profit 501(c)(3) organization.
  • 15 campuses in Kansas and Missouri, and a brand new campus is under development in Colorado Springs.
  • A board of trustees governs PMMA. Each campus has a mission committee comprised of community leaders who provide insight and guidance to the needs of the area.
  • PMMA provides equal access to services for all residents, without unlawful discrimination due to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability or age.
