October 20, 2015 — Culpeper, VA — Culpeper Baptist Retirement community (CBRC), a faith-based continuing care retirement community with a history of more than 65 years has announced that the Board of Trustees has approved expansion plans for the CBRC campus located on Route 15 South in Culpeper.  CBRC was a vision and dream of Dr. J. T. Edwards, a former pastor of Culpeper Baptist Church.  CBRC is operated by Virginia Baptist Homes, Inc., which operates four communities serving more than 1,200 seniors. CBRC enjoys a stellar reputation including with the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services for its licensed nursing home.

Residents of CBRC attended meetings on Monday, October 19, to receive an overview of the plans for new Residential Apartments, which will include licensed Assisted Living, a dedicated neighborhood for seniors with dementia or memory impairment, and a licensed nursing home with a dedicated area for rehabilitation.  Staff announced that the new buildings being planned for the CBRC campus will replace the existing Assisted Living and Nursing Home buildings.  The staff shared with residents that there will be opportunities for input and suggestions from residents and their families regarding the design and programming of the new building.

The project has been a long time coming, and comments from residents during the question and answered periods reflected their appreciation that plans are moving forward with an expansion.

In addition to CBRC, Virginia Baptist Homes, Inc. operates the following not-for-profit faith-based continuing care retirement communities:  The Chesapeake in Newport News, Lakewood in Richmond, and The Glebe in Daleville as well as the Virginia Baptist Homes Foundation.
