Williamsburg Landing Expansion Update

2017 LeadingAge Virginia Virtual Art Show

Amongst their busy schedules, many of our residents spend their time creating artwork in a variety of mediums. Whether it be photography, woodworking, knitting, or even ceramics, our residents take great pride in the pieces that they create. Each year, LeadingAge Virginia holds a virtual art show that residents are able to submit artwork in three categories: Photography, Painting and Mixed Media (Quilting, Sculptures, etc.). This year we had five residents participate, and ten pieces of artwork submitted in a variety of mediums.

National Nutrition Month


It’s March. March means New Year’s resolutions are fizzling out, and our goals to change our eating habits to healthier choices may have taken a turn for the worse. Choosing healthy foods is difficult at all ages, but maintaining good nutrition as an older adult can be even more challenging. Transportation options can be limited, healthier food tends to be higher priced, and many older adults no longer cook for themselves. Combined with regular exercise, maintaining proper nutrition will help you live longer, be more mentally sharp, and feel better all around.

The Stephen H. Montgomery Employee Training and Education Fund

In 2008, resident Hank Kremer and his wife Joyce generously funded the Nurse Education fund at Williamsburg Landing. The fund was to provide training for Woodhaven nurses to encourage compassionate care. It was such a success, that some years later the Board of Williamsburg Landing determined that it would be beneficial for these training opportunities to be available to all employees, not just nurses. The Employee Training and Education Fund was created in the spring of 2016, as Steve Montgomery was approaching retirement.

Ready Body, Learning Minds Project


Williamsburg Landing resident Bud Walker has been a skilled woodworker since his teenage years. He has crafted a variety of items such as toy boxes for his grandchildren, art easels, lamps, and even a dollhouse that is an exact replica of his granddaughter’s current home. His most recent project in Williamsburg Landing’s woodshop was in partnership with the Williamsburg James City County (JCC) School system and WJCC Physical Therapist, Susan Larkin.

Fitbits Can Benefit Seniors

Are you looking to spice up your afternoon walk around the neighborhood? Do you want to better track how much exercise you’re getting each day? Fitness trackers such as the Fitbit are becoming more and more popular amongst all ages. The goal of these devices is to help people live more active, healthy lifestyles and to be more aware of how much physical activity they participate in every day.
