Activities & Events
At The Manor at Lake Morton, we are pleased to provide a variety of opportunities so our residents can continue to enjoy an active and vibrant lifestyle. Our social director plans activities and outings each month designed to offer all of our residents something that appeals to them, and we welcome our residents’ families to join us for any activities. Check out our monthly activity calendar here.
Customized Activities and Outings
We love to engage residents by encouraging them to join activities that complement their personalities and personal interests. Some residents enjoy recounting their life stories and special interests while others are encouraged to continue their hobbies in music, gardening, quilting, baking and more.
Our social director plans outings to points of interest around Central Florida. Close to home, residents are encouraged to explore the historic district of Lakeland, a city celebrated for its parks, architecture and culture. Together, we can feed the swans by the lake or walk downtown to the farmers’ market or a First Friday celebration. Downtown boasts great restaurants serving everything from authentic Italian fare to New Orleans-style seafood to delicious fresh coffee, as well as a number of locally owned shops and the historic Polk Theatre.
We also encourage residents to stay active through It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), adaptive technology systems that empower seniors to connect, engage and enjoy life. With careful thought and design, iN2L has made technology socially, cognitively and physically beneficial for our residents. The program has incorporated touch screens with specially designed software to allow for expanded physical and cognitive therapy services in an inventive way. Benefits of this program include increased socialization, cognitive stimulation, greater sense of independence, and adaptable and personalized activities.
