The Culpeper Expansion
Construction has started on The Culpeper’s new, state-of-the-art 125,000-square-foot expansion project. The new residences will add a total of 133 new apartments, including 54 Assisted Living homes, 32 dedicated Memory Care apartments and 47 licensed Skilled Nursing rooms, as well as new dining venues and facilities. Opening March 2019, the majestic new building will face the Blue Ridge Mountains and offer more of the all-inclusive services and amenities for our residents that The Culpeper has come to be known for. This expansion to our existing community is just one example of LifeSpire’s efforts to offer the best levels of care for our Virginia residents.
The 54 new Assisted Living residences will offer a variety of floor plans, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments designed to allow our residents to age in place. All will be handicapped-accessible with a full-sized refrigerator, oversized closets, large windows with expansive views, private bathroom and shower, and more.
The expanded community will also offer 32 Memory Care apartments for residents with cognitive impairments such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. These new apartments will be housed in two Memory Care neighborhoods, each with their own country kitchens, quiet rooms, spas, dedicated activity rooms, large open common spaces, and dining rooms with wait service and fresh, cooked-to-order food.
Additionally, our 47 new licensed Skilled Nursing rooms will be used for both rehab to home and Skilled Nursing. All rooms will be private, and CNAs will be on staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Culpeper’s expansion will also transform our dining venues. The new restaurant-style dining room will offer cooked-to-order offerings made by our executive chef and served by our impeccable wait service. In addition, patio seating will offer panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, an exhibition kitchen, and The Village Café, offering both grab-and-go and made-to-order options.
