Groundbreaking at RiverWoods Durham

Published Thursday Aug 30, 2018

The RiverWoods Group recently broke ground for their newest project, RiverWoods Durham, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), and affiliate of The RiverWoods Group (TRWG), the parent company of the nationally accredited 24-year-old RiverWoods Exeter, and Birch Hill, in Manchester.

RiverWoods Durham is a non-profit CCRC that comprises 150 independent apartments and a 72-bed health center, on a 11-acre campus in Durham. After only 29 selling days, RiverWoods Durham was 100 percent sold. 

CCRCs welcome people 62 years or older to enter as independent residents. Once there, residents enjoy a variety of amenities from housekeeping, laundry service, dining, inside and outside maintenance, to educational programs and exercise classes, while making friends and cultivating community engagement. As they age, if a resident needs a higher level of care, it is available to them within the same campus.

Co-founders of RiverWoods Exeter, Marianna Hatch and Rosemary Coffin were honored at the groundbreaking ceremony.  Johanna Hatch, daughter of Marianna Hatch, a long-time resident of Durham spoke during the ceremony, in honor of her mother and the community she inspired.
