Sanders Retirement Village

Home Sweet Home in the Heart of Virginia’s Middle Peninsula

From the moment you arrive on the Sanders Retirement Village campus, the family atmosphere and genuinely caring people here let you know this small community in Gloucester’s historic courthouse district along Main Street has a huge heart. And yet, because of its unique status as a Riverside Health System community, Sanders has resources and expertise to draw upon that other larger communities cannot begin to equal.

Lifestyles and services for retired older adults include Independent Living cottages, Assisted Living apartments, the first de-institutionalized nursing home ever built in Virginia, and rehabilitation care (skilled nursing).

Sanders residents enjoy the sweet life of living in the heart of a small yet vibrant town and surrounded by a staff that feels more like family, delivering peace of mind to residents and their families, comfortable transitions and great continuity of care should it ever be needed — including the outstanding services of nearby Riverside Walter Reed Hospital.

It's no wonder, then, that Sanders continues to receive high ratings and rave reviews — its skilled nursing care services earned a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — making it the Continuing Care Retirement Community of choice in Gloucester.

Sanders is easily accessible from the west in Richmond and the east in Norfolk. Call, stop by or send us a message today. We’d love for your family to be part of our family.
