About Us

image-runkbusNo one ever wants to imagine becoming primarily dependent upon others for physical care and emotional welfare while living our senior years. But when the aging process changes our dependency status or medical emergencies leave us unable to fully take care of ourselves or a spouse, it is reassuring to know that there are excellent care options available.

Family owned and operated, Runk & Pratt guarantees superior individualized care, including assisted living, residential care, and respire care. Runk & Pratt has been a leader in assisted living options throughout their 24 years of service and dedication to the Lynchburg, Forest, and Bedford communities. We are proud to be a part of only 15% of the assisted living facilities in the state of Virginia who have not only met, but exceeded the state’s extensive licensing criteria.

Quality of Life


Our mission is to provide the highest quality of life while living as independently as possible.

Because our residents become family, our goal is for each member to achieve their best quality of life. We value resident input because it directly impacts their daily routines, including activity panning, social engagements, and medical care.


“Runk & Pratt is a beautiful place to live! I enjoy the variety of activities to choose from daily. I especially like to participate in all the music programs they have here. I attribute my improved health to eating three good meals a day and being socially active. I’m so thankful to be here!”

“What has impressed me the most is how friendly everyone is! Prior to coming here I had very little socialization with other people but being here has really helped me come out of my shell. There is always something to do and someone to visit with.”

A. Sager

“I really like the atmosphere at Runk & Pratt. I enjoy my private room and having a place to call home. It is nice to know that there is always someone here looking out for me and assisting me with my needs. I’d recommend Runk & Pratt to anyone.”
