About Us

Who We Are

Who We AreThe opening of the Rose Anna Hughes home in 1947 in downtown Louisville was the beginning for Presbyterian Homes & Services of Kentucky. This fulfilled the wishes of a wealthy widow, Rose Anna Hughes, who left money in a trust ‘for the purpose of aiding in the erection of a home for widows’. Today we manage a network of facilities that offer a broad range of services to the elderly including speech therapy for adults, geriatric occupational therapy or long term care via multiple nursing homes in Kentucky.

Drawing upon our rich history, Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky has developed unique, faith-based communities in the state of Kentucky that are inclusive and open to residents, clients, staff and volunteers without discrimination of any kind.

Our corporate offices are in Louisville, Kentucky. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit company that provides senior housing services in Kentucky. We care for over 400 residents and employ over 500 individuals on our four campuses in the state.

Assisted Living

Presbyterian Homes & Services of Kentucky operates on an annual budget of approximately $25 million. Nearly 90% of our revenues go directly to support program services. Our funding sources include private insurance payments, payments from individuals, Medicare, Medicaid and of course, charitable donations. In years past we have provided benevolent care to residents based on their need. We are proud to say that the contributions to the Caring Hands Fund have allowed us to continue the work that Rose Anna Hughes put before us.
