New Living Community Will House 200 Seniors & Create Jobs

Campbell Co., VA - A new senior living community is on the way in Campbell County, bringing 80 to 120 new jobs.

There will be 173 individual apartment units at Liberty Ridge, housing more than 200 seniors.

Runk and Pratt, which already has three other senior living communities in Central Virginia, expects to break ground here early next month.

"It is going to be for independent - those people who can do most everything for themselves and just want to be a part of the environment here. And then we're going to have assisted care, which means that we will do all their medications, assistance with bathing with care, and of course we'll have the memory care as well," said Vickie Runk from Runk and Pratt.

Runk and Pratt expects to have the senior facility open in the early part of 2014.
