Local Ownership Makes a Difference

At The Manor at Lake Morton, you’ll feel the difference that local ownership and management make in creating a warm, family-focused environment of care. The Manor at Lake Morton is owned and managed by Lakeland residents Louis and Lori Garrard, not by a corporation or senior care conglomerate.

The Manor at Lake Morton team, residents and their families get to know each other personally, building relationships that foster closeness and care. At The Manor at Lake Morton, residents are like members of a big extended family. Visitors and residents immediately feel the warmth and care we provide.

The Garrards

Louis and Lori Garrard have been providing senior adult care since 2008. In addition to The Manor at Lake Morton, they own and operate Grace Manor at Lake Morton, a memory care community. Louis and Lori often are asked to share their expertise and wealth of knowledge by speaking at events related to senior care.

After recognizing a need in the area for assisted living care provided with a family approach, the Garrards founded The Manor at Lake Morton. They envisioned an environment where older people thrive, where loneliness and isolation are behind them, and where families and friends feel secure knowing that their loved ones can remain independent yet be protected and fulfilled.

The Garrards and their team members believe in providing care as if they are serving their own families. They also are dedicated to meeting the needs of their residents’ extended families.
