Community — A Tradition at Hermitage Richmond
Our goal is to be like the close-knit neighborhoods where many of us grew up. Hermitage Richmond offers people the ability to contribute to the greater good, make new friends, cherish old friends and family, and give themselves and the ones they love the gift of a plan.
Residents at all levels of living control and direct their lives. They have the option to be as private as they choose and actively involved in the community.
Our residents take advantage of these services:
- Transportation to medical appointments and weekly shopping excursions.
- Maintenance free residences, inside and out.
- Multiple dining alternatives for delicious and nutritious meals.
- On-site beauty salon, Hidden Treasures, creative workshops, and Peeps Place (convenience store).
Over Hermitage Richmond’s more than 70 year history, we have always been and will remain intently focused on the lives of the people who call our community home.
A trend that we have embraced and championed for our residents and staff can be summed up in the phrase “person-centered.” The core of our person-centered approach shapes specific parts of our community into unique personal households or neighborhoods. It changes the institutions of assisted living, nursing or memory care into a homelike environment — like the one people had to leave when their needs changed.
One of the conscious changes being made is to move from an institutional to a more informal, homey approach. The person-centered approach removes attempts to schedule and control residents’ lives and gives autonomy and freedom back to them…that’s why people choose to call our communities “home.”
Each day is informal, like a day in our own home, and results in a truly rewarding and satisfying daily life for residents and team members alike. Why would we ask anyone to give up home, just when they need it the most?
