Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.
That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.
What are your interests?
Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site
The convenience of Dogwood Terrace's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.
Outside clients are welcome in anytime to enjoy the salon services.
Fitness Right at Home
Dogwood Terrace residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
There's a group that gathers on a regular basis to walk around the property. Exercise while enjoying time with friends is always a win. We have onsite Physical and Occupational Therapists, one PT teaches a fantastic strength and balance class. We also offer yoga classes and a Power Braining exercise class.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Dogwood Terrace’s dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
Our Chef previously owned his own restaurant, and was named Regional Chef of the month within the Holiday family twice. The Sous Chef has won the Holiday Touch of Excellence Award. There is a monthly roundtable to check in that resident needs are met, regarding the menu and variety of dishes.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Henrico area and Dogwood Terrace makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
You can join the "lunch bunch,” a group that goes out once a month to try different restaurants. It’s a great opportunity to make friends with fellow foodies! Some popular bus excursions include trips to museums, concerts, theater, or dinner and a movie.
Life is Never Boring
Dogwood Terrace’s comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
Residents with a green thumb love to help take care of the community herb garden as well as the flower planter in front of the building. We have a Wii bowling team that competes with another community, and make no mistake...they want to win!
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Dogwood Terrace. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
There is even a community pet turtle!
Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi
Dogwood Terrace is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi.
We have Tech Tuesdays where teenage volunteers come in and answer questions residents may have about their devices, and provide instruction on how to better use them.
Travel and Adventure is Always Available
The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
Lend a Helping Hand
Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. We have a group that knits hats and blankets for the local hospital. There's also residents who prepare mats and cards for Meals on Wheels.
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
Join us for a Complimentary Meal
At Holiday Retirement, we love our food and know you will too. We invite you and a guest to join us for a flavorful meal and the opportunity to see first-hand if independent retirement living is right for you.
