While consistent care may not always be necessary, having the option available can alleviate unnecessary worry. Knowing that mom will be taken care of no matter the time of day is well worth the investment. 

3. A Retirement Community Unlike Any Other

When Mr. James Luther Williams, founder of The Williams Home, Inc. drew up his will and determined what his legacy would be, he envisioned a non-profit community for aging ladies in Lynchburg, Virginia. When it first launched, there were only 11 residents, but that number has grown far beyond that first group.

The Williams Home, Inc. strives to connect each resident with the community that’s been created over the decades.

Marian, a resident at The Williams Home, Inc. states that the ladies, who she considers “sisters”, are thoughtful and kind and are what makes this place the one to choose. 

“The ladies just seem to care about each other and go out of their way to talk to people and carry on a real conversation. It’s like a step back in time when people had time for conversations, enjoy a cup of tea, make friends, and have real friendships. This is the place for you,” Marian says.

4. Over 70 Years of Experience

When choosing a place for mom, you want an option that has been around the block a few times.
