He plays a vital role in the Legacy of RUI, as the nephew of one of the company’s founders, Horace Fralin. With over 20 years of experience exhibiting outstanding leadership in the field of healthcare and public service, Mr. Fralin’s career has illustrated a passion for serving people. With a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Virginia and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Richmond, Mr. Fralin champions the value of education and continued growth.

From 2004 to 2010 he represented the 17th District of Virginia as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates where he advocated for over 60 bills that would enhance school safety, fight against domestic violence, redevelop inner cities, and much more. He currently sits on the Board of the GO Virginia Foundation, the Board of Verge, the Board of the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, is an active member of the Virginia Business Council, and he worked at Medical Facilities of America, Inc. for 20 years where he held the title of President and CEO.

She is a US Army Veteran that is passionate about building teams that work seamlessly together, building off of trust and respect. RUI’s vision is “to deliver a lifestyle that our residents have earned and deserve.”

With the wonderful guidance of our founders, Horace Fralin and Elbert Waldron, we have been providing exceptional senior living services across Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina. As a legacy company, our board of directors is comprised of members of the Fralin and Waldron families that continue to focus on the original values and philosophies of the organization, while still evolving and growing. We are passionate about continually providing quality care, exemplary customer service, top-of-the-line amenities, and a community design that brings a purposeful life to you or your loved one.

Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights have honored Retirement Unlimited, Inc. with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process involved surveying 100% of employees from across Retirement Unlimited, Inc.’s locations and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.
