    1Can I move in now, despite the COVID-19 pandemic?
    Absolutely. New residents are moving in and are taking comfort in having everything they need, including meals, delivered to their front door. We’ve adjusted all of our procedures, keeping our residents and associates’ safety in mind. To learn more about all we are doing to make your move comfortable, call us today.
    2May I personalize my residence?
    Of course. This is going to be your new home and with our standard features and your ability to upgrade, you can customize your home in almost any way you want. If you have special preferences for certain interior design elements – paint, window treatments, floor covering – we’ll work with you to accommodate them.
    3What 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.
    4Will 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.
    5What 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.
    6Why 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.
    7What are some examples of activities?
    • Ongoing concert and speaker series
    • Four unique restaurant and dining experiences
    • Theater, dance, symphony outings
    • Local festivals and concerts
    • Lunch and dinner outings

    9What are the advantages of a Lifecare Community?
    At Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge, the Lifecare agreement ensures you’ll receive any level of care you need, for as long as you need it, for essentially what you’re paying for your residence in independent living. Your expenses will be more predictable. Learn how Lifecare protects your assets and its unique tax advantages here.
