Goodwin Living Beginnings
In the 1950s, the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia acquired its first retirement home for older adults in Richmond. Inspired by this, Allen Adams (a layman serving on the home’s management committee) sought to create a similar, innovative community in Northern Virginia.
With a generous donation of land in West Alexandria from Benjamin M. Smith in 1963, the plans to build the... first Goodwin Living campus were underway. When Goodwin House Alexandria opened in 1967, it was one of the first purpose-built continuing care communities in the country and the first in Northern Virginia. Twenty years later, following the success of Goodwin House Alexandria, a second community opened in Bailey’s Crossroads, a growing suburban neighborhood in Falls Church, Virginia.
Goodwin Living Today
Thanks to our incredibly history serving older adults in two Life Plan Communities, we have found ways to reach even more adults by take care and services beyond our campuses.
Today, we offer a range of senior living and healthcare options, including our innovative Goodwin Living at Home program that empowers and enables older adults ages 55+ to remain in their homes for as long as they wish. We also offer Hospice, Home Health and Rehabilitation services to individuals throughout Northern Virginia, ensuring that anyone can thrive as they age in the places and ways they choose. In August 2022, we welcomed The View Alexandria by Goodwin Living (formerly Hermitage Northern Virginia) to our range of services.
We’re proud of this legacy of leadership and innovation as we continue to reimagine and redefine aging, both within our communities and beyond their walls. We do this by focusing on the future and expanding the places and ways we serve and engage older adults.
