Amblyopia
Amblyopia — also called 'lazy eye' — is poor vision in an eye due to the lack of normal visual development despite the eye being healthy. If left untreated, amblyopia can result in permanently depressed visual acuity in the affected eye.

Progressive Lenses
If you're in your forties or older and your eye doctor has prescribed bifocals, don't despair. Presbyopia — the normal loss of ability to focus clearly on near objects that comes with age — affects everyone eventually. But these days, you don't have to wear conventional bifocals with visible lines across the lenses that broadcast your age.

The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT Positions Howard County for Growth
New senior living community to fulfill senior needs as county prepares for “Silver Tsunami”

| http://www.millersgrant.org |

ELLICOTT CITY, Md., December 18, 2014 - Last week, Howard County presented its ‘Master Plan for
Older Adults Survey Findings.’ With the current senior population scheduled to double by 2030, the survey
results identified areas where Howard County could enhance its offerings and services and programs important
to area seniors, such as:
• availability of health care services
• recreation activities
• transportation options
• social engagement/interaction
• education opportunities
• volunteer opportunities
• intergenerational interaction
• employment
Beginning in December 2016, at least 400 Howard County seniors will receive these services as residents of a
new senior living community in Ellicott City. The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT, a not-for-profit
continuing care retirement community will provide housing as well as access to on-site health care services,
transportation, social activities, volunteer opportunities, and health and wellness facilities.
“According to industry studies, older adults who engage in social and active lifestyles, receive proper medical
care and practice overall good health and wellness live longer and happier lives,” says Geary Milliken, president
and CEO of Carroll Lutheran Village, the sponsor of The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT. “As the newest
and largest continuing care retirement communities in Howard County, MILLER’S GRANT will provide residents
with activities that interest them and help them maintain an active lifestyle while having amenities and services
to make their lives easier. This in turn will help reduce the demand on county
As the opening of The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT approaches, the retirement community will also
impact Howard County in other areas, such as:
• employment
• real estate and associated services
• revenue
• taxes
• community reinvestment
“Once MILLER’S GRANT is completed, it will provide employment opportunities for approximately 88 full-time
employees and many other part-time positions,” says Steve Powell, vice president of finance at Carroll Lutheran
Village. “Currently, Carroll Lutheran Village is partnering with Howard County companies Harkins Builders and
Williamsburg Homes to build MILLER’S GRANT and is investing over $85 million in its construction, resulting
in local jobs and an immediate contribution to the tax base.”
The real estate industry in Howard County will also see a positive impact from the construction of MILLER’S
GRANT. “As residents prepare to move to MILLER’S GRANT, there will be an influx of available housing,”
continues Powell. “This often generates income for the County with additional transfer tax revenue and
Realtors and ancillary service providers. It can also affect spending on home improvement, landscaping, home
decor and furnishings.”
As an organization committed to volunteerism, The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT will also positively
impact Howard County by reinvesting in the community. “Carroll Lutheran Village is dedicated to giving back
to its surrounding community. This year, we received the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Non-Profit
Partner in Business Award,” says Brenda Becker, vice president of marketing and communications for Carroll
Lutheran Village. “We look forward to establishing partnerships within Ellicott City and Howard County to
continue our philanthropic efforts and be a vital part of this dynamic community.”
The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT is located at 9531 Frederick Road. The 50-acre parcel was donated to
Carroll Lutheran Village of Westminster, the sponsor organization for The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT,
by the Charles E. Miller family, who also contributed land to the adjoining Miller Branch of the Howard County
Public Library and Ellicott City Senior Center. It is approved for 241 independent living residences, 20 assisted
living suites and 12 comprehensive care beds. More than 85 percent of the homes and apartments are already
reserved. Occupancy is expected to begin in December 2015.
About The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT
When complete, The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT will be a faith-based, not-for-profit continuing care
retirement community on 50 acres off Frederick Road situated next to the Charles E. Miller Library. The
Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT is under construction and regulated by the Maryland Department
of Aging. Reservation deposits are currently being accepted. MILLER’S GRANT participates with Howard
County in the Moderate Income Housing Unit Program.
For more information about The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT, please contact 877-900-6618 or visit

The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT Presents the True Costs of Staying in Your Home
President of LifeSite Logics Brad Breeding provides valuable insights about lifestyle, healthcare and financial considerations for retirement
People often think that staying in their home is the best way to save during retirement. However, this is not always the case.
On February 19, 2015, The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT, a planned not-for-profit continuing care retirement care community, will host Brad Breeding, president and co-founder of LifeSite Logics, who will educate Howard County area residents about the true costs of staying at home in their later years.
During the complimentary event, Breeding will reflect on the tangible expenses and intangible consequences of living in a home not suited for graceful aging. He will discuss the nuances of a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) versus other retirement living choices, and will explain the key aspects of the decision process. His extensive knowledge of the CCRC industry, combined with his financial planning background, allows him to provide valuable insights about lifestyle, healthcare, and financial planning considerations related to this life decision.
Breeding is the author of What’s the Deal with Retirement Communities? and speaks regularly for retirement communities, industry trade organizations, life-long learning classes, and other groups across the country. He is a Certified Financial Planner™ practitioner with over twelve years of industry experience and is a graduate of North Carolina State University.
