About Us

We're Different

Serving in the Lutheran tradition of social ministry

Different is engrained in our culture and has been from when our founders’ goodwill conceptualized a care setting to meet a rural community’s needs for senior housing and forged their vision into becoming one of the first nursing homes in Carroll County, MD.

That nursing home, Carroll Lutheran Village, continues to thrive, though differently from its humble beginnings. Over the last 40 years, the nursing home has expanded to a life plan community with more than 600 residents, a continuum of care, a variety of apartments and homes, services and amenities. In the past 10 years, it continued to evolve adding a sister community, Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant, and creating a corporate entity, Lutheran Social Ministries of Maryland.

Our differences have led to award winning recognition, nationally and locally as well as within the senior living industry. See why we are the best; experience the difference for yourself.
