Lori Bowman, a CNA on our team, supports the Good Samaritan Fund. It was her love of caring for residents that compelled her to become a CNA.

Age Well, Live Fully

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community (VMRC) is where retirement means doing what matters most: aging well and living fully. This philosophy guides everything we do at VMRC and it’s why we are continually innovating -- developing new ideas and better ways of doing things to meet the ever-changing needs of our residents.
