Independent Living Is a Way of Life at Brandermill Woods

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

As a continuing care retirement community, Brandermill Woods has been serving seniors in central Virginia for more than 30 years. The word care is fundamental to our mission and how we support our residents. The word continuum means that we offer the right services for every phase of retirement, including Assisted Living and Memory Care.

But when we think of the phrase retirement community, we are emphasizing Independent Living. Retirement communities today are not the nursing homes of yesteryear, but rather vibrant worlds where older adults can enjoy living among other like-minded seniors—neighbors who become friends and want to redefine what retirement means in the 21st century.

What does Independent Living look like today?

For starters, when you move into Brandermill Woods, you have your choice of residences that include freestanding cottages and clubhouse apartments. These are private homes just like you would have in any other development, with the benefit of living on campus that is like a small town in itself.

Just steps from your door, for instance, you can enjoy all the amenities of our expanded clubhouse, which includes a library, arts and crafts room, movie theater, game rooms, a woodworking shop, upgraded dining options, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Residents particularly love our indoor therapeutic swimming pool, where we offer a wide range of aquatic classes for all fitness levels. 

We designed these amenities especially to promote active social life among our residents. From happy hours to game nights to friendly meet-ups with your neighbors, we want you to connect with those around you and enjoy retiring on your terms. This is what Independent Living is all about — you’re living independently, free to come and go as you please.

What you will find at Brandermill Woods is a full range of living arrangements for every personality—right in the thick of activity or a bit removed. It’s a community designed for the life you want in this next chapter of life.

Freedom plus peace of mind

One of the biggest benefits of living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community is that, in addition to living independently, you also have peace of mind in knowing a suite of health care and support services are available and will allow you to age in place should your needs ever change.

Our Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Care neighborhoods are here with the same friendly staff members and the same welcoming spirit, so you can rest easy knowing you will always be at home here. Our focus for every level of living is to provide the right balance of care while giving you the freedom and dignity to live how you want. This freedom of care is what distinguishes today’s retirement communities from yesterday’s nursing homes — and represents one more way Brandermill Woods is redefining retirement.

If you ask any of our residents, they will tell you their only regret is that they didn’t move in sooner. We look forward to helping you get started on the retirement on your terms! To get started or to learn more, contact our friendly team today!
