About Us


Welcome to Our Family

Grand Manor Monticello was founded in 2013 by father and son duo Mike and John Akin. Tired of the institutionalized senior care options, they set out to improve the quality of life for seniors and make a difference in people’s lives. The team at Grand Manor is dedicated to providing top-notch service and care, with a focus on promoting seniors’ health, independence, and social interaction. They’ve handpicked the best team members who are passionate about serving others, and each staff member undergoes thorough training to ensure they’re fully prepared for their role at the community.
