An Inspired Vision For The Future Of Richfield Living
Please Virtually Join Us!
Richfield Living hosts our annual event to honor and remember those who have touched our lives this year.
So many people play an important role in making life at Richfield wonderful: residents, family members, staff, volunteers, vendors and more. With time passing seemingly faster and faster, along with ever-increasing demands, we often don’t make time to grieve, reflect, celebrate and remember. That’s why Richfield Living hosts this annual event to celebrate the gift of life and those who have passed during the year in a special service.
Sponsorship of a bulb on our Tree of Light is now open. Bulbs can both honor and memorialize a loved one.
Please contact Scotti Hartman, CFRE, Director of Community and Development at 380.6555 for additional information and to receive a donation envelope. After the event, please drive by campus anytime, or look out your window to view our beautiful tree honoring your loved one.
Many thanks to John M. Oakey & Son for sponsoring our event!

Create a lasting impact by donating to our Salem & Roanoke communities.
As a not-for-profit community in Salem, and soon in Roanoke, VA, Richfield Living must balance the need to keep fees affordable with the need to perpetuate high standards. Our conservative and diligent financial management has allowed us to meet our goals, but growth that fits within our greater service objectives must come from other sources. Through your contributions to Richfield Living we can continue to enhance our services, facilities, and amenities.
The financial assets of Richfield provide funds for new programs, services and facilities; renovations of current buildings; employee scholarships and assistance when residents outlive their financial resources. You can help residents in many ways.
Exciting changes are happening at Richfield… changes that will enhance quality of life for our residents for decades to come.
With continued support and the competitive performance of Richfield’s endowment, we are able to make funds available that provide new opportunities for our residents by developing programs and facilities which enhance their care and quality of life. Contributions from individuals, corporations, and organizations are managed according to policies developed by Richfield’s Board of Directors. Funds are managed transparently, ensuring that each gift is used according to the donor’s intent.

If you wish, you can allocate your gift for a specific area of need:
Assisted Living Legacy Fund
As people live longer and care needs change, residents on fixed incomes can find it hard to make ends meet in the face of investment underperformance, health challenges, or simply by outliving their savings. Some residents worry they will no longer be able to afford to live at Richfield.
The goal of the Richfield Assisted Living Legacy Fund is to provide financial assistance to those living in assisted living who lack options to further meet their cost of care. Funds are perpetually needed to support this program and the need continues to rise. Each year Richfield Living subsidizes, on average, over $273,000 in unreimbursed costs for benevolent care.
A donation to Chaplaincy Services through the Chaplaincy Fund can provide additional programming, devotional materials, and direct assistance to the support of outreach to the Richfield Living community through The Chapel. Many choose to tithe or support this service through volunteering. Spiritual wellness is important on many levels and your donations to this fund is appreciated.
Scholarship Fund for Team Education
Richfield is committed to our people and learning. One of our strategic initiatives is to fully engage, develop, and empower a diverse, well-educated team of professionals who embrace our mission, values, and continuous learning. Our Scholarship Fund makes it possible for our employees to get advanced training and education to keep up with the changes in health care and best practices. In return, they apply their skills to enhance the lives of our residents.
Building Facilities and Resources For Residents
Contributions made to Richfield Living will assist us with these goals:
- Build a new Town Center that will offer expanded wellness offerings, educational, and life enrichment opportunities for residents
- Provide funds to assist with building a new nursing center
- Provide funds for renovations and upgrades to our current facilities
- Provide funds for supporting our current Wellness Center – its individual wellness programs, exercise classes, aquatic programs and equipment needs
