About Presbyterian Communities and Services

Culture, vision and values align.

With a shared legacy in business and healthcare innovation, our family of care-oriented organizations blends values built on compassion and faith with high-quality senior care — long-term care, Alzheimer’s and memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapies, hospice and palliative care. Presbyterian Communities and Services is a ministry, first and foremost.

These senior care services, along with the celebration of independent living at our senior lifestyle communities, combine to bring deeper meaning to every phase of life for people of all faiths, regardless of race, gender, color, religion, national origin or disability. We’re the not-for-profit, faith-based parent of Grace Presbyterian Village, Presbyterian Village North, Faith Presbyterian Hospice, and the soon-to-be completed T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center.

We invite you to learn more about who we are, our leadership, what we believe, and what we promise to you and your loved ones.

Our History
