Presbyterian Senior Living(PSL) is a not-for-profit organization, providing retirement and senior care services for more than 85 years. The mission of Presbyterian Senior Living is to provide compassionate, vibrant and supportive communities and services to promote wholeness of body, mind and spirit.
Personal care homes provide seniors with professional assistance when needed and a way to enjoy an active lifestyle. Most personal care and assisted living communities offer meals, housekeeping and transportation services, assistance with the activities of daily living, security and 24/7 on-call assistance. Personal care homes provide the opportunity for companionship for those seniors who would rather not live alone and often host activities in a group setting to promote socialization.
As summer is in full swing and the outside temperature heats up, it's a perfect time to start talking about preventing dehydration throughout the summer months. Older adults face an increased risk of dehydration due to reduced ability to conserve water, a decrease in thirst, and a decreased daily fluid intake. Chronic illnesses and medication use increase risk as well, so seniors suffering from diabetes or dementia or taking certain medications may be at higher risk of dehydration.
We are proud to announce that twelve of our communities are recipients of the Pinnacle Quality Insight’s 2019 Customer Experience AwardTM. Qualifying in multiple categories, Presbyterian Senior Living displays a continued dedication to providing Best in Class senior healthcare services.
This Reflection on Leadership is my final message as CEO of Presbyterian Senior Living. It has been a wonderful journey, filled with unexpected twists and turns. To say that the last 47 years has exceeded my expectations is an understatement of the highest order. At the top of the list of those who have contributed to this successful journey is my wife, Rhonda. Her commitment to PSL’s mission has been equal to mine, and the impact of her unqualified support in our 48 year marriage cannot be measured. Because of her support, the next chapter of our life together is filled with great promise.
For seniors, it can be a challenge to find the right restaurant. Maybe parking isn’t easy, and you’re unable to walk far. Perhaps you’re just unfamiliar with an area and aren’t sure what options are available.
Have you reached retirement age? Perhaps you have already retired, but you're finding that it's not all it's cracked up to be. Everyone says that once you retire, you'll never look back. They say retirement improves health and well-being. They even say it's the best decision you'll ever make. Well, here's what we have to say to that, "Not true!"
One in seven middle-aged adults are part of what we’ve frequently begun to call the “Sandwich Generation.” It’s a term that was first coined in 1981 by social worker Dorothy A. Miller and originally meant to describe women in their thirties and forties caring for their young children and aging parents. Fast forward some 34 years and 71% of those sandwiched between their parents and children fall between the ages of 40 and 59—consisting of both men and women caregivers.

As might be expected, I have been thinking a lot about the passage of time lately. The recollection of my 47 year career with Presbyterian Senior Living is rich with detail. When my memory fails me as I try to remember the name of someone I met last week, I can still recite the names and room numbers of the first residents of the nursing center that was my initial assignment as a nurse for Presbyterian Homes.
