Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging has awarded six organizations with Promising Practices Awards. The Awards highlight organizations that are moving away from conventional practices by developing and implementing new and innovative approaches in aging well, long-term care, and senior living communities. This year generated applications from 20 states, a record high for the award.

“We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of our annual Promising Practices Awards,” said Sara McVey, Vice President, Mather LifeWays. “These six organizations were among 30 finalists taken to the selection committee and were chosen based on their practice’s innovation, the outcomes presented, and the replicability of the practice.”

The goal of Promising Practices is to learn “what is working” and “how it is working” from those who have experienced success in these areas: culture change, safety/risk management, wellness, technology, workforce development, community-based services, and resident/customer experiences.

Honorable Mentions:


Presbyterian Villages of Michigan in Southfield, Michigan, for Rivertown Neighborhood. Planning is underway to create the only living campus for older adults of its kind, which will include an array of services and areas including 80 units of affordable assisted living, an adjacent, accessible Community Park, and much more.
