Aug 2, 2023 | Uncategorized

We are ecstatic to announce that Virginia Living’s annual “Best of Virginia” issue has named Covenant Woods as one of this year’s Best Retirement Communities. Covenant Woods placed in the top three for Retirement Living within the Central Virginia region.

For 12 years, Best of Virginia has been a guide to the finest places to eat, shop, work, and play in the Commonwealth. More than 460,000 ballots let us know where to find the best our state has to offer. From the finest farmers market in the Southwest to the unique bookstore in the Eastern region.  In Virginia Living Magazine Best of Virginia 2023, you’ll find nearly 1,500 winners and it comes with much thankfulness that Covenant Woods was amongst the Best Services in the Central Virginia region.

“We are in good company with our central Virginia peers, and I simply could not be prouder of our accomplishment,” says Covenant Woods President and CEO Thom Wright.

Covenant Woods has supported wellness and purposeful living for 140 years through its mission and values. Originally founded in 1883 as The Richmond Home for Ladies and expanded as a Life Plan Community in 2001 open to both men and women, Covenant Woods has evolved to become a well-respected, multifaceted organization.

“Our 140-year mission to serve elders was, and still us, revolutionary. Our values continue to resonate with Virginians. We foster a community where residents, staff, volunteers, and community partners collaborate to support successful aging, engagement, fellowship, and purposeful living,’ says Wright.
