Jimmy Oakley, CEO/Administrator – Presbyterian Manor

“As I reflect upon the history of Presbyterian Manor I’m proud to say that we’ve stayed true to our mission for almost 35 years. The founders of the organization developed a mission to care for the elderly of our community. We’ve brought forth the mission and it continues to be our goal to provide the highest quality care for the senior adults we serve. I look forward to continuing this quality of excellence for many years to come.”

“We’re different from other organizations because we are a non-profit which means the health and happiness of each one of our residents is our primary focus. As the CFO it is wonderful to be able to make decisions because this is the best thing for our residents, not because we need to make a profit.”
