Benevolent Care and Services
As seniors are enjoying extended longevity, even with the best of planning, many find themselves outliving the resources they had so carefully saved. From its very beginning, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America has been committed to supporting its residents who outlived their financial resources through special giving opportunities. Today, PMMA continues to bridge the gap for residents who have outlived their financial resources through no fault of their own.
Contributions to the Good Samaritan Program make it possible for residents to continue to live at their PMMA community, regardless of their ability to pay. One in four residents living in Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s assisted living and health care neighborhoods are supported in some way through the Good Samaritan Program. This equates to more than $4 million a year of unreimbursed care and services needing Good Samaritan support.
PMMA conducts two special appeals annually to support this program. The Mother’s Day Tribute is conducted in April and May. The Angel Appeal is done in mid-November through the holidays.
You can support the Good Samaritan Program directly by giving online or participating in one of the many Good Samaritan Program fundraisers at your local PMMA community. Through our online giving, you can designate your gift for the benefit of a particular PMMA community.
Right now, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America is having its annual Angel Appeal for the Good Samaritan Program. Look for the Angel Appeal tree at our campus. During the past two years, donors to the angel appeals have given more than $90,000 to the Good Samaritan Program. The program assists PMMA residents who have out-lived their financial resources through no fault of their own. Since PMMA began 66 years ago, no residents have been asked to leave because they exhausted their financial resources. Visit our campus to leave an angel gift.
