The only retirement community in the Staunton, Va., area supported by over a century of knowledge and experience.

A legacy of health care innovation and assisted living reinvention.

The Legacy at North Augusta in Staunton, Va., is sponsored by National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS). With the experience and knowledge that comes from more than 130 years of service, NLCS honors, inspires and supports choice and opportunity in partnership with older adults. 

The first National Lutheran Home, located in Washington, D.C., welcomed residents in 1895. After several expansions, The National Lutheran Home relocated to Rockville, Md., in 1980, and built a 300-bed skilled nursing facility on 30 acres now known as The Village at Rockville—A National Lutheran Community. In 2008 the organization created a parent entity, known as National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS), to oversee the growing needs of the ministry.

With innovative approaches to health care, NLCS is creating the future of retirement living today—not only at The Legacy at North Augusta in Staunton, Va., but also in the development of new senior living communities and services including The Village at Orchard Ridge in Winchester, Va., The Village at Rockville in Rockville, Md., The Village at Augsburg in Baltimore, Md. and The Village at Providence Point in Annapolis, Md., pending approval by the Maryland Department of Aging. At the same time, NLCS is reinventing the approach to health care, assisted living, and rehabilitation with the daily living support and wellness services of myPotential at Home.
