We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.
Caring for someone with memory impairment? Wish you had a window into the world of your loved one with dementia?
Presbyterian Manor and Kindred Hospice are teaming up to provide an interactive workshop where participants will spend 5 to 10 minutes experiencing first-hand what it feels like for someone with memory loss.
On Tuesday, May 21, this sensory experience will provide a better understanding of the behaviors and needs of loved ones living with Alzheimer's disease or other memory impairments.
To schedule your personal session, contact Sloan Dwyer at 620-421-1450 or [email protected] by May 15.

The Parsons area is well known for its appreciation of the arts, especially when it comes to Art is Ageless®, our annual exhibit and competition which features art from those age 65 and older. This year, Parsons Presbyterian Manor's leadership team decided to take that a step further by organizing an art auction for artists of all ages. The event is a fundraiser to benefit the Good Samaritan Program which provides funding to assist residents who outlive their financial resources through no fault of their own.
We invite you to join us at 6 p.m. on June 13 at the Carnegie Arts Center (117 S. 17th, Parsons) as we auction a variety of art pieces ranging from paintings to photography to furniture to quilts and more! The "sip and see" with appetizers begins at 6 p.m. At 6:45 p.m., we'll start the live auction
Any artist interested in commissioning a piece of art is asked to contact Maegen Pegues at 620-421-1450 or [email protected] Have questions? Reach out to Sloan Dwyer at 620-421-1450 or [email protected]
"Over the years, the Parsons Art is Ageless program has continued to grow. There is an unbelievable amount of talent in Southeast Kansas, and some of the local artists, including Presbyterian Manor Mission Committee member, Joan Allen, expressed an interest in donating a piece of art that could be auctioned for our Good Samaritan Program," said Maegen Pegues, executive director.
"With Joan's support, as well as many other local artists, the idea came to fruition. We are extremely excited about this first event and look forward to growing it in future years. The fact that this is an extension of our Art is Ageless program is just icing on the cake."
Proceeds from the auction will remain local, supporting Parsons Presbyterian Manor residents through the Good Samaritan program. Thanks to this critical program, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America (PMMA) is proud to say that no person has ever been asked to leave one of our communities based on their inability to pay. In 2018, the Parsons Presbyterian Manor Good Samaritan need was $48,000.
