Raleigh’s premier community for senior living
Inspired by one man’s vision, Springmoor was the first full service retirement community to open in Raleigh, North Carolina, and began earning a reputation for quality right from the start. Blending independent living with a full continuum of on-campus healthcare services, Springmoor celebrates an active, vibrant lifestyle with an emphasis on dignity, security and peace of mind. Springmoor is nationally accredited, not-for-profit, financially stable and located in Greystone Village, a beautifully developed area in Northwest Raleigh.
Springmoor’s founder, Justus M. (Jud) Ammons, grew up in the North Carolina mountains as a sharecropper’s son. From these humble beginnings, he became a visionary developer, land planner and civic leader.
While building his career, Ammons developed an interest in seniors. In the early 1980s, he learned about an innovative approach to senior living that combined an active retirement lifestyle with access to lifelong health services in one community. Enlisting the guidance of consultants, obtaining the input of community leaders and personally studying the needs of seniors, Ammons began to envision the Springmoor community. Investing his own personal and financial commitment, he worked with a board of directors to make his vision a reality, and in 1984 Springmoor opened its doors.
Ammons’ passion to create communities of quality that respect and honor the beauty of nature is reflected in Springmoor’s creatively designed campus and exceptional service. Nestled on 42 wooded acres, Springmoor’s buildings, streets and walking trails blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings.
Today’s seniors see retirement as a fresh and exciting phase of life. At Springmoor, we continue to enhance and expand amenities and services to deliver on those expectations. Listening and responding to those we serve have always been the secret to our success.
