Making Person Directed Living Dynamic

Power of Relationships…Engagement…Well Being

Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg has provided health care support services for individuals with chronic conditions for almost 40 years. Our health care team is available 24 hours a day to help residents with all aspects of well-being and to provide necessary medical services.

The new Drinkard Healthcare Center supports Person Directed Living with its innovative neighborhood design. Living, dining and activity spaces are central to resident apartments and provide opportunities for outdoor activities. Neighborhoods feature:

  • Private rooms with full bathrooms
  • Shared living and dining rooms just like a private home.
  • Only 21 residents per neighborhood
  • Assistive medical technologies, like ceiling-track lifts and wireless pagers
  • 24-hour dedicated nursing team on premises
  • Housekeeping and Laundry services

Our health care service delivery is different from other providers because of our Person Directed Living philosophy. While quality of care is critical, well-being for each resident is first in consideration.

Each resident decides what constitutes well-being for them. Our team members strive to know each person and to understand what contributes to their sense of well-being. Our goal is to provide an environment that supports a more purposeful life for our residents here in Lynchburg, Virginia.
