Levels of Care Give You Peace of Mind

“Where everybody knows your name.” This classic line from the theme song to Cheers has resonated over the years because it represents what we all want: a sense of belonging, friends who are like family, an intimate support group, and the general sense that your home feels like home. It’s hard to picture without seeing it for yourself, but this sense of belonging is what you’ll find at The Village at Woods Edge.

Offering the small-town charm that Franklin, Virginia, is known for, The Village is perfect for seniors who want to enjoy all life has to offer in retirement. Under ordinary circumstances, this means a glass of iced tea on the back porch with friends, a vibrant day of activities and classes, and a dining experience that feels like a little slice of paradise.

Of course, 2020 has thrown us all a curveball with the coronavirus. In times like these, peace of mind is paramount for seniors. While most seniors join us in our Independent Living neighborhood, we offer several levels of care so that you can take comfort knowing all the care and support you need is there should you ever need it:

  1. Lifestyle and community are the name of the game for Independent Living. Seniors enjoy lovely cottages or apartment homes, with access to all the amenities, dining and friendship they want. And, because we are so connected to the town of Franklin, you can enjoy all the benefits of small-town living, from fitness classes at the nearby YMCA to a relaxed afternoon of shopping downtown.
  2. Our Assisted Living neighborhood,The Manor, gives seniors access to around-the-clock care while still experiencing the freedom and privacy of apartment living. Whether it’s help with dressing and bathing, medication management, or personal services, Assisted Living residents are able to focus on lifestyle and wellness.
  3. Our Memory Care community, Asa’s Neighborhood, serves seniors experiencing memory loss due to Alzheimer’s or dementia. Staffed by highly trained professionals, our Memory Care neighborhood caters to the unique physical, emotional and nutritional needs of every resident, with a dual focus on privacy and care.
  4. Finally, the Village maintains strong partnerships with the medical community in Franklin, including East Pavilion Nursing Center, Lakeview Medical Center and Southampton Memorial Hospital. Should you ever need 24-hour Skilled Nursing or Long-Term Care, we can connect you and your family to a facility for a smooth transition.

What all this adds up to is an overarching sense of peace of mind for our residents, in good times and in bad.
