Fulton Presbyterian Manor will have new owners starting Sept. 15.
In an announcement Wednesday, current operator Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America announced the sale to Legendary Land Holdings LLC.
Under the new ownership, the facility will be renamed Kingdom Care Senior Living LLC.
"The decision to sell was not an easy one. The PMMA board of trustees and senior leadership have been in discussions for several months about the future of Fulton Presbyterian Manor," PMMA President and CEO Bruce Shogren said in a news release.
In the release, Shogren called the move "the best decision" for residents and families.
"We truly believe Legendary will provide a seamless ownership transition, as well as continued security and stability for the seniors who call Fulton Presbyterian Manor home," he said.
Shogren said the future of Fulton Presbyterian Manor has been a subject of discussion at PMMA for a while and that it had reached out to see who might be interested in the facility.
"Our major goal was to find someone who could keep it going and give it the same level of care," Shogren said.
Legendary operates two other Missouri senior living facilities, Legendary Nursing & Rehabilitation and Delta South Nursing Care, Rehabilitation & Assisted Living, in Marshall and Sikeston. The company was founded by Barry and Michelle Aycock.
"Our philosophy will be to continue to provide quality senior services to the residents they have come to expect," Legendary director of operations Bobbie Young said in a news release.
Fulton Presbyterian Manor has begun notifying residents, families and employees of the decision. The new ownership will meet with staff Sept. 3.
A question and answer section at fultonpmnow.org details some aspects of the change.
"We are working hand-in-hand with Legendary Land Holdings to make sure the change of ownership is as seamless as possible, which includes providing the care and services from many of the familiar faces you currently see every day," one answer reads. "It is Legendary's goal to keep as many current employees as possible to provide continuity of care."
