Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge is an upscale retirement community that offers an active lifestyle. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our residents have to say.

John and Eleanor V.

“We signed up for WCBR after procrastinating for a couple of years, and our two daughters finally had a clandestine meeting that resulted in an ultimatum, ‘Mom, Dad, you have got to decide where you are going to be when the train pulls into the station for the last time.’ So, we decided. We did our due diligence and looked closely at the different living accommodations for independent living, carefully studied the health system and finally the fitness offerings. No doubt WCBR was the place to go, even if it meant selling the cat. What never crossed our minds was the WCBR staff. As we are running up to our third year here, we have learned, though understaffed at times, it was a group of people doing a fine job, trying their best. “

Walter and Anita M.

“We’ve been at WCBR for close to three years and have truly been blessed by the amazing care and service we’ve experienced from people at all levels, from the leadership to the associates.”

Judy R.

“My husband had a stroke nine months ago. During this time, the support and care has been incredible. He has been able to continue rehab and I am able to get medical supplies directly from the clinic, rather than a drugstore. He has everything he needs to continue healing.”

Jacqueline G.

“We moved here because we knew about Westminster-Canterbury’s reputation for quality care. We’ve not been disappointed.”


“As residents, we realize how blessed we are to live in such a caring community where there is concern and compassion for one another.”

Mary H.

"The Downtown Mall is a very interesting place. It’s full of wonderful restaurants, cute little shops and bars where you can sit outside and enjoy a glass of Virginia wine."

Richard L. R.

"Lifecare was key to our thinking. Everything else is pretty obvious."

Louise D.

"I go to the fitness center at least three times a week. I really enjoy the classes over there."
