The Glebe and Lakewood named ‘Best Nursing Homes’

By Ann Lovell

RICHMOND, Virginia—Two LifeSpire of Virginia continuing care retirement communities recently received the distinction of “Best Nursing Home” by U.S. News & World Report. Lakewood in Richmond’s West End and The Glebe in Daleville were two of 38 retirement communities in Virginia — out of slightly more than 2,000 nationwide — that received the magazine’s honor.

U.S. News evaluated more than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide and released the list in November 2016. The ratings — based on overall performance and data from Nursing Home Compare at the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — are designed to “help potential residents and their loved ones navigate this difficult process” of selecting a nursing home that meets an individual’s needs, said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News.

“We are very pleased that Lakewood and The Glebe received this distinction,” said Jonathan Cook, LifeSpire’s president and CEO. “This honor simply underscores what we already know: Our communities are dedicated to providing quality care based on our mission of service and our history of compassion. We applaud them for their work.”
