HISTORY

Established in 1975, Moravian Manor’s history is rooted in the early works of the Moravian Church in Pennsylvania. The foundation for Moravian Manor was established in the 1950s through the early works of the Moravian Church to care for its aging members. In the early 1970s, the Lititz Moravian Church donated 22 acres in town to construct the retirement community. The Manor welcomed its first residents to the Moravian Avenue Cottages in late 1974 and to Manor West Personal Care (formerly called the residential wing) in January 1975.

Throughout the years, we’ve experienced growth with numerous expansions, renovations, and enhanced facilities to provide increased services to our residents. Some of these highlights are listed below.

The Manor East Health Center’s two story expansion and renovation project – the South Wing, which provided for more private rooms and a more home-like atmosphere, was completed. During this year, we also initiated a change in philosophy, with regards to our approach to health care, to adopt a hospitality model that focuses on resident-centered care.

After a year of planning and concepting, the new Warwick Woodlands project, to be set on 72-acres of a former landscape nursery, started its pre-sales phase. Phase I of this new neighborhood will include: townhomes, carriage homes, and apartments.

2016

Moravian Manor and LutherCare’s joint partnership not-for-profit company, Your Neighborhood Connection, started offering in-home care and services to the Lititz community. Warwick Woodlands broke ground on the first carriage homes and townhomes.
Looking to the future, we remain dedicated to the continual improvement of accommodations and services that we offer to our residents and the local community.
