1May I personalize my residence?
Of course. If you have special preferences for certain interior design elements – paint, window treatments, floor covering – we’ll work with you to accommodate them.
2What about housekeeping and maintenance?
Leave that to us. We provide weekly light housekeeping and flat linen service, with additional housekeeping and other services available for an additional fee. All repairs and maintenance — inside and out — are taken care of.
3Will I have a voice in this community?
Absolutely. You’ll have the opportunity to join committees focused on different aspects of community life, and to participate on the community’s Resident Association. These resident committees support and advise the administration in both strategic planning and tactical execution.
4What is a CCRC?
Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) offer independent living and a comprehensive range of long-term care services, from assisted living and memory support to licensed skilled nursing care. These services are available on both a short- and long-term basis, as needed. At Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge, your transition between different levels of care is seamless thanks to Lifecare.
5Why choose a not-for-profit community?
Not-for-profit communities such as Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge manage their financial resources in accordance with their mission, with long-standing values reflected in governance and management. This means that profits go back into the community itself, rather than to investors or shareholders. What’s more, the benevolence fund of the Foundation ensures that residents who outlive their resources through no fault of their own will never be asked to leave. You can be sure that the revenues we generate are being used for the benefit of those who live here.
