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

Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s 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.
