Careers at RiverWoods Durham

RiverWoods Durham is a new Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) opening in Durham, NH in December 2019. This is the newest sister community to RiverWoods Exeter. Both communities are charitable, non-profit, and nationally-accredited CCRC’s. The original Exeter, NH campus, the dream of a grassroots group of Seacoast area residents, opened in 1994.

All RiverWoods campuses remain true to our founders’ original inspiration — that growing older should enhance, not diminish, the opportunity for a productive and rewarding life.

RiverWoods Durham will be home to 150 Independent Living homes and 72 health care homes including Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, and Memory Care.

Each member of our team plays a critical role in achieving our mission: to provide the opportunity for community, purpose, and peace of mind for our residents and each other.
