For nearly 100 years, VMP has been striving to create an environment where older adults thrive and remain engaged and healthy. We have come a long way since our inception in 1925 as the non-profit Elmore Home for the Aged and the area’s only Methodist retirement home. While we keep an eye on the past and honor our Christian roots, we move forward with a clear vision to continually improve and grow our community. It is our goal to stay at the forefront of healthcare innovations, such as our ventilator wing and our soon-to-be-built multi-sensory room for memory care residents. VMP’s former Reverend George Palmer proclaimed in 1956 that our campus will be “a self-contained community with all the necessary facilities for communal living. It is intended to meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs of its residents.” Over the years, we have accomplished this lofty ideal by expanding options to accommodate the ever-evolving needs of older adults.
From humble beginnings and with the benefit of time, VMP has emerged as a healthcare leader. We offer a full continuum of care, which includes independent living, assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation, to skilled nursing care. This spectrum of services, our longevity, and our faith-based mission make us unique in a field where new senior communities sprout with frequency.
Of course, we want to acknowledge that we are who we are because of people power: amazing residents, hard-working staff, hundreds of giving volunteers, compassionate leaders, and everyone who came before us to help build VMP Healthcare & Community Living. It continues to be our privilege to serve older adults and support community causes. Thank you for considering VMP.
The mission of VMP is to provide a full range of senior healthcare for residents, patients, and the community in accordance with Christian values.
