About Beth Sholom



History and Growth
For more than 70 years, Beth Sholom has been dedicated to providing the greater Richmond community with the highest quality of healthcare. Beth Sholom (“House of Peace”) opened in 1945 in the Fan District as the first Jewish home for seniors in the state. Guided by faith-based values such as kindness, respect and patience, our facility was soon associated with compassionate nursing care. Beth Sholom moved to a larger campus in the West End following a period of rapid growth.

Today, our community is composed of an independent living apartment complex (The Woods), two assisted living communities (Parkside and The Gardens), a Healthcare Center with skilled nursing and a full spectrum of rehabilitative care, and an Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic. Several of our facilities also offer dedicated memory care units.

While much has changed over the years, our founding principles have remained the same. Our nurses and other staff are highly regarded in central Virginia for not only their skills but their devotion to residents as well. A high nurse-to-resident ratio is one of the hallmarks of our care. With a strong heritage in place, Beth Sholom confidently looks forward to continuing its role as a leader in healthcare.

Continuum of Care Community
Residents and their loved ones can take heart knowing that their needs can be met at Beth Sholom, even if their situation changes. Our continuum of care community can provide everything from independent and assisted living to memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing.

Our residents can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their monthly rental is all-inclusive. Unlike many of its peers, Beth Sholom does not charge an entrance or community fee.

Life Enrichment
At Beth Sholom, we approach wellbeing holistically. Each week, our communities offer a full range of activities designed to support the emotional, mental and physical needs of our residents. Regular activities include arts and crafts, musical performances, sing-alongs, yoga and other exercise classes, manicures, games, movies, cookouts, parties, and outings as well as Shabbat dinners and spiritual services for a variety of denominations. Our Life Enrichment activities are also designed and supported by a staff that includes a chaplain, recreational therapists and a clinical social worker.

The opinions of our residents are greatly valued and regularly solicited. Our Resident’s Councils play an active role in programming and provides valuable feedback to administration and staff.
