As an independent living resident, you’ll feel secure knowing acute care is available right on campus for the occasional minor illness, monitoring of chronic conditions, or emergent care. You’ll also enjoy peace of mind in knowing you have guaranteed priority access to our full continuum of senior care services in our Manor East health care wing including short-term rehabilitation, assisted living, memory support, and skilled and long-term nursing care. Residents who’ve chosen the Lifecare contract option will receive these services when needed with no significant increase in monthly fee.

Should hospitalization ever be required, Covenant Woods is conveniently located near Memorial Regional Medical Center in Mechanicsville and just nine miles from the Level 1 Trauma Center at VCU Medical Center in downtown Richmond, Virginia.

“Health care at Covenant Woods is a breath of fresh air. It’s clean, the food is great, the activities are many, and the staff – from housekeeping to dining staff to CNAs and nurses – are wonderful.”

— Family member of Manor East resident
