The Culpeper (formerly Culpeper Baptist Retirement Community) is a Continuing Care Retirement Community that enables people to live a carefree, active lifestyle. Located in the foothills of Culpeper, Virginia, with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the community offers a warm, friendly place to call home, extensive amenities and conveniences, and access to a continuum of care on-site.

Residents choose to live in a maintenance-free apartment or cottage — and benefit from a wide range of amenities and services that promote independence and wellness. Residents also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing they can access assisted living, licensed nursing care, rehabilitative therapy and other health services whenever the need arises.

A Continuing Care Retirement Community offers active seniors an independent lifestyle with a choice of private residences and available dining services, programs, on-site conveniences, and health care services. When residents require higher levels of care, they remain on-site and can access the community’s Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing and Rehab, and other health care support on an as-needed basis.

There is no difference. Life Plan Community is becoming a more commonly used term to describe a community that offers a full continuum of on-site care if a resident ever needs it.
