PMMA recognized by National Health Information Awards Program

Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s 2016 Art is Ageless® Calendar received a Silver Award from the National Health Information Awards Program.

Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, a faith-based not-for-profit organization with 17 retirement communities in Kansas and Missouri. Each community holds a juried art competition exclusively for people age 65 and older. Winning art may be chosen to appear in a calendar or note cards. Periodic programs and classes are held throughout the year to encourage seniors to express their creativity.

Art is Ageless began in 1981 when resident art was featured in a calendar.  Knowing how a creative outlet can benefit the mind, body and spirit is just one reason that in 2006 PMMA opened its Art is Ageless competition to all seniors in the area.

The National Health Information awards program is coordinated by the Health Information Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for consumer health information programs and materials.

PMMA began in Newton, Kan., 1949 and now has 18 senior living communities in Kansas and Missouri. It offers independent and assisted living, long-term care, memory care, short-term rehabilitation, respite care and adult day services.
