The first phase of The Manor was the renovation of an existing memory care unit. The 16,000 sq. ft. assisted living facility was redesigned to accommodate Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related patients, using non-slip wood floors, wide corridors, and a simple floor plan to create a serene environment.
The second phase provided a charming 3,000 sq. ft., 6-bedroom Senior Cottage to work in tandem with the existing memory care facility. WMB-ROI took special care to fit any new structures into the scale, rhythm, and style of the existing historic neighborhood composed of bungalow-style architecture, assuring all designs complied with the standards of the Historic Preservation Board and the City of Lakeland.
The third phase involved the construction of a new 23,000 sq. ft., 3-story assisted living facility. The new building, sporting a stylish Victorian turret and thick, square columns, provides the space for 40 apartment-style units for self-sufficient seniors. The design of this expansion incorporates large common spaces and views of Lake Morton for the residents to enjoy.
