About American Retirement Homes

Who We Are

American Retirement Homes, Inc is a family-owned management company that has been enhancing the lives of seniors in Virginia since 1968. With over 50 years experience, we understand seniors, their variety of needs and what it takes to provide unsurpassed proper care to each one. Throughout Virginia, we manage four Assisted Living Communities and ten Personal Care and Homemaker Agencies. 

Local in Virginia

We consider ourselves a Virginia Tradition. Our business did not start in a corporate location 1,000 miles away, rather we are rooted in the state of Virginia where we have established strong relationships with additional services and companies that many of our residents and clients need. With these relationships, many of our residents never have to move from our Assisted Living Community or leave their home under the care of AmeriCare Plus, our personal care and homemaker agency.

Our passion is our family mindset as we treat each of our residents, clients and staff as our family. To us, each one is a part of our extended family. Our staff is selected for their compassion and professional knowledge. Each one is dedicated to our clients, their specific needs and providing quality care with a personal touch.

American Retirement Homes, Inc is dedicated to providing a quality home environment. Whether you live with us in our Assisted Living Communities or we enter your personal home to assist you with your daily living needs, you can guarantee that you will receive superior care, compassion and security from our well.

About Our Communities

An American Retirement Homes Community is evident in our intimate family settings that feel like home. Designed for easy living, each community offers different room plans, dining options, community living rooms, and outdoor areas that are in stark contrast to the institutional feel of larger facilities.

We offer a unique approach to Assisted Living. All four residences are small, intimate, and family oriented in feel and layout. Your next door neighbor becomes family. Being smaller in size allows residents to maintain the felling of home instead of just being a number as they so often are in institutional settings of larger facilities.

Residents may choose private or semi-private furnished rooms. All of the worrisome household chores are taken care of for you so that you may enjoy your days with friends and family or participating in our planned social activity program. Nutritious home-cooked meals and snacks are prepared for your pleasure everyday and registered medication aides are on staff to ensure that you take the proper dosage of your medication throughout the day.

American Retirement Homes has dedicated and professional staff working to meet your individualized needs around the clock every day of the year. All of our staff is interviewed, screened and trained to be at your service. Many residences have professional nurses on staff and are on-call to help whenever necessary. Our residences are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and offer full smoke detector systems, in addition to individual room smoke detectors, call bell systems, and alarmed exit doors.

In many ways, life in our residences isn’t much different from your life now. There is no strict regimentation-in fact; our residents are encouraged to maintain their own daily schedules while pursing their individual interests and hobbies. American Retirement Homes will work with you and your family to meet your needs.

We invite you to visit and tour the community of your choice. Come and meet the staff and residents, ask questions, stay for lunch. We are confident that you will be glad you did. 

Let's help your loved one rediscover themselves like we've helped thousands of Virginia families just like yours do for more than 50 years.
