EPP Spotlight Company: Williamsburg Landing

Firmly rooted in tradition and the community, the foundation for Williamsburg Landing was laid in the 1970s by a group of local residents who foresaw a need for a Life Plan Community in Williamsburg, Virginia. In 1985, that vision became a reality in the opening of Williamsburg Landing. Ever dynamic, evolving, and growing to meet changing needs, Williamsburg Landing remains the model of excellence through service to its residents and the greater community.

Residents maintain an active, independent lifestyle and enjoy a full continuum of healthcare through all stages of life, including independent living, home health care, assisted living, separate and secured memory support, rehabilitative services, skilled nursing care, and long-term care, all on one campus. Additional services, such as dining, housekeeping, scheduled transportation, home maintenance, security, and activities are also provided. A Life Plan Community allows residents to “age in place,” never having to worry about moving to another facility if healthcare needs change.
