Westminster at Lake Ridge, a premier life plan community in Prince William County, has new leadership: Kera Wooten has been named its executive director. With more than 20 years of experience in the senior living field, Wooten was promoted to executive director after serving as Westminster at Lake Ridge’s Independent Living Administrator. “Kera has already been such an incredible leader within the Westminster at Lake Ridge community,” said Ingleside COO Christine Podles. “We are so excited for this next, new chapter with Kera at the helm.”

About Westminster at Lake Ridge

Westminster at Lake Ridge is a beautiful older adult life plan community located near Occoquan, operating as a proud part of the larger Ingleside family. Life plan communities appeal to many seniors for their multitude of services. Most people initially move into independent living, where they can live just like they do in their own home, but with the added benefits of community living, including maintenance, amenities, programming, social opportunities, and the promise of future care if needed.

The CARF-accredited, SAGECare, platinum LGBT cultural competency credentialed, not-for-profit life plan community offers the full continuum of care. This includes assisted livingskilled nursing care and rehabilitation services which are all conveniently located on Westminster at Lake Ridge’s 62 acre campus.

“The best part of contributing to the amazing Westminster at Lake Ridge team is all of the strength and knowledge that I’ve drawn from the diversity we have here,” said Wooten. “We’ve all benefitted from everyone bringing their own unique backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and skillsets to work every day. Although our backgrounds are different, we all share the immense pride we take in our service to residents.”

Residents and their families have peace of mind knowing that they or their loved one will be able to stay in the community they have grown to love, near the people they care about, no matter what changes the future brings.

Continuum of Care

When families are considering a retirement community, one of the most important questions you can ask isn’t about the luxurious amenities, the swimming pool, the social life, or the floor plans. The leading question on your list should be, “Does your community offer a complete continuum of care?” That’s because, without a complete continuum of care, residents may find themselves needing to move again should their health situation change, and they find themselves needing more support as they age.

Engaging Activities

Westminster at Lake Ridge offers a variety of fun activities for residents to enjoy, no matter which level of care. Balloon volleyball has proven to be especially popular amongst assisted living residents, providing a unique way to engage within the community.

Many residents start their day with the energizing movements at tai chi class, then engage in a lively discussion about subjects ranging from investments to current events. Compelling classes are offered in intriguing topics like technology, conversational Italian, painting, or mosaics. Physical engagement is a top priority as well with the pickleball court also getting a lot of use by residents.
