Vinson Hall Retirement Community
Fifteen years ago, Ann Dietrich sold her Great Falls home and moved to Vinson Hall. Recently widowed, she and her husband had shared this plan and she decided to go ahead with it.
Born and raised in Virginia, and as the wife of a naval officer, she remembers fundraising for Vinson Hall Retirement Community (VHRC) while living on both the East and West Coasts, Paris, Madrid and Japan.
From the beginning, she appreciated the staff at VHRC. “They learn names fast,” Ann says, “and make it a point to greet everyone they encounter.”
A few years after Ann moved in, Vinson Hall’s expansion plans were announced. Ann realized that more residents would mean more funds, more variety, more activities and improvements. With the expansion came cosmetic changes followed by ever-evolving dining options, classes and a new fitness center.
Two years ago, at the age of 89, Ann took advantage of VHRC’s in-house rehabilitation center after cardiac surgery. “I am galloping around now,” she says. “There is so much to enjoy, not the least of which is the beautiful dining room and rich menu. We have a beautiful chapel and a fantastic library with a librarian who has been here for more than 30 years.”
Independent Living at Vinson Hall Retirement Community is open to commissioned U.S. military officers and immediate family as well as leadership-level government employees, GS-14 or higher. Assisted living, skilled nursing, long-term nursing and memory care are open to the local community.
