Pratt-Stanton Manor helped older adults to live independent lives for over forty years, as a nonprofit assisted living facility for older adults in New Orleans. Recent trends show an increase in the number of adults 65 and over who fall below the poverty line. This is occurring at the same time that funding for older adult services is declining. We believe that, while it is important to invest to reverse this trend, it is also important to invest to help older adults live independently and with dignity. Pratt-Stanton Manor worked hard to provide high quality services. It created a happy and healthy environment for its residents so that they could enjoy fruitful and meaningful lives. As a fund of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, Pratt-Stanton Manor seeks to continue this legacy through partnerships with organizations that share this vision.
