Secure, spacious independent living apartments

Whether you prefer the convenience of independent living apartments or the extra space and privacy of a patio home, you’ll find Richfield Living’s retirement independent living communities provide options and flexibility unsurpassed. With our renewable rental agreements, you can select living options designed to make your cost of living as closely matched to your needs as possible.

Community engagement includes an IT Concierge, a menu of activities that engage all the senses, and a full time Community Engagement Manager. Richfield Living promotes wellness and well-being on all levels, and if you have a talent or desire to learn new skills, then consider calling Richfield home.

Our goal is to provide a retirement community that fosters independence, wellness and security so you can enjoy life to the fullest, right here in Virginia.

Our 2020 expansion to 140 new villas and independent living apartments will also include a new 25,000 square foot Town Center bringing all areas of our campus together. Amenities include multiple dining options including dining by the lake, a new wellness and education center, and a new integrated chapel – all open to residents and the public.

Not just a place to live. A home.

Trade shoveling sidewalks for taking long walks. Trade building maintenance for building friendships. At Richfield Living, our warm and caring staff will take care of the little things, so you can enjoy all the amenities our retirement community has to offer. Additionally, should your health or the health of a loved one change, you’ll have access to a full constellation of healthcare services without leaving the Richfield campus.

We are updating our COVID-19 Protocols to provide our residents with information related to Phase I Independent Living Policies and Protocols as Virginia enters Phase III of re-opening on July 1, 2020.
