The Harmony Collection at Hanover Independent and Assisted Living in Mechanicsville, VA
4.1

I'm enjoying The Harmony Collection. It's a very nice place to live, with good service. The price is a little high, but other than that, there's nothing wrong with it. It's very comfortable, the people are very friendly, and you feel safe here. We have a two-bedroom two-bath apartment, and once a week the cleaning service comes in and cleans. Some of the activities like Bingo I'm not as interested in, but they have plenty of other things that l like.

Chestnut Grove in Richmond, VA
4.2

My mom's been there since July so it's been a short period but no complaints whatsoever. It's very clean, they're very friendly, occasionally there may be one person but that's just a personality thing. Overall, everyone's very friendly, when you come into the facility they greet you and they're very helpful. My mom just needs assistance with things, she's not independent, they handle all of the medications but my mother hasn't had any complaints and believe me she would tell me. My mom, believe it or not, is not one to go to activities, but I think she's slowly venturing out. She'll be 88 but she's not senile whatsoever, so I think some of the activities may be geared towards people who aren't so with it. They do have outings, but my mom, given the option, would chose not to go but I know they post calendar's of activities for the month and there's always something going on 2 or 3 times a day and the foods terrific, I'd give it a 5 plus. They say when you see it you know it and when I walked in I just knew it. She's had a couple of bumps in the road but they were addressed immediately and didn't happen again.

St. Francis Home in Richmond, VA
5.0

We had to move my father out of a larger community due to behavior issues, but we haven't had any problems since moving to St Francis. Everything is working out fine and everyone is happy. They have home cooked meals like chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, macaroni, good food. I had dinner with him last Sunday. They do activities like bingo. He has a room by himself. Overall it's a really nice place.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Richmond is the capital of Virginia and one of the oldest states in the Union. The city is filled with a wide variety of historical and cultural opportunities ranging from colonial history to contemporary art. This is why living in Richmond, VA is a great option for any active senior. One of the most historically significant locations in Virginia is St. John’s Church, where Founding Father Patrick Henry famously decried “Give me liberty or give me death.” The American Civil War Museum is another important historical location which was once the home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and which houses a large archive of information on the American Civil War.

The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden offers a lovely stroll through its vast array of flora housed in its domed conservatory. A popular spot for outdoor recreation is Maymont, a 100-hundred acre Victorian estate filled with walking paths and beautiful flower beds. The estate also has a carriage museum and a native wildlife exhibit. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has works by Goya and Picasso on display, as well as a dedicated gallery of ancient Egyptian artifacts, and a display of Faberge Eggs.

Transportation

Richmond has limited options for public transit. Bus routes are operated by the Greater Richmond Transit Company which offers reduced fares for seniors and Medicare customers. The Pulse Line is scheduled to open soon and will offer high frequency bus routes in the West End, the Museum and VCU district, Downtown, and the East End.

Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities.
