Community in Every Sense of the Word
There’s a smile around every corner. People still tip their hats and open doors for you. There’s a welcoming spirit of friendship. And an undeniable commitment to helping and serving others. But it’s not just our amazing residents and staff that make The Glebe a beautiful place to be. It’s also having everything you need right at your fingertips to nurture your mind, body and spirit.
Our dynamic senior living community is nestled on over 65 well-manicured acres with plenty of wide-open spaces. It’s also surrounded by one of the most breathtaking landscapes imaginable – the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Beyond the natural splendor, we’re a lively place of fascinating people who enjoy their active lifestyle and making it even better. A carefree community void of housework and chores and full of enriching amenities and hospitality services to enjoy every day as you choose.
Whether it’s a dip in our indoor saltwater pool or a hike along the Appalachian Trail, indulging in an exquisite dinner prepared by our expert culinary team or dining out in nearby Roanoke, attending one of our many arts and education programs or a football game at Virginia Tech, there’s always so much to do, so much to see, and so much life to be lived.

Spirituality at The Glebe
The Glebe is part of LifeSpire of Virginia Inc., a faith-based, nonprofit family of retirement communities. These communities were born out of deep faith convictions, principled values, generous altruistic principles, ethical and benevolent morals and a profound vision of a faith community. The Glebe was established on the principles of compassionate care for the elderly and respect for the sanctity and dignity of all life. And at The Glebe, individuals will experience an atmosphere that affirms the values of peace, love, forgiveness and justice.
There’s an ethic of respect and concern given unconditionally to all. Residents express their spirituality through a wide variety of denominations, faiths and religious practices. Spirituality at The Glebe seeks to be inclusive and encourages our residents to maintain connections with their home congregations or faith communities. Local churches visit and support The Glebe residents, and many come on campus to offer education and worship in their particular tradition. Though diverse, we’re united in affirming and supporting freedom of religion, and we’re united in our commitment to learning from each other.
