Our experienced leadership is committed to serving the community
We ensure exceptional continuing care in the Roanoke Valley
Each of the Lifespire of Virginia communities has a unique setting, distinctive features, and its own leadership. They all share the steadfast mission of providing “Dignity in Living” and uphold a common value system that reflects the ideals of faith and family. At The Glebe, a common ethic prevails. We are committed to being stewards of both the promises we make to the men and women who live here and the continuing high quality of the community itself. We’re here not simply to do a job but to serve to the best of our abilities. Meet our leadership team below:
