What is Warm Hearth Village?
Located in Blacksburg, Virginia, Warm Hearth Village (WHV) is a nonprofit retirement community that offers a full continuum of care. Its mission is "fostering a person-centered approach to aging in an inclusive environment that redefines retirement.” Warm Hearth Village is the sponsor of WoodsEdge, which is located on the WHV campus.
What is a continuum of care?
A continuum of care includes living options and choices to meet your needs. We offer active adult and independent living as well as all levels of care from assisted living to memory care and skilled and long-term nursing care. The advantage of living in a community with a continuum of care is the ability to remain in the same community as your needs change.
What is the “100-Year Plan” I have heard about?
The founders of Warm Hearth Village, Wybe and Marietje Kroontje, were true visionaries. As their dream of creating a senior living community unlike any other began to take shape, the Kroontjes created a 100-year plan for development. The first quarter century of the plan focused on establishing a continuum of care that included independent living, assisted living, memory care and long-term nursing care. That phase of the plan was completed in 2000 with the opening of the Kroontje Health Care Center. The next phase called for the construction of single-family homes and a community center to unite all residents of the campus.
Who is allowed to use the Village Center?
The founder of Warm Hearth Village, Wybe Kroontje, originally envisioned the Village Center as the heart of the campus plan—a place that would encourage interaction among residents and enhance both physical and social wellness. The Village Center is available to all residents of WoodsEdge and Warm Hearth Village, as well as employees and the community through special events.
