Helping You Reach Your Highest Level of Independence

Newfound Lodge provides a range of supportive living options, including Assisted Living, Memory Support, and Nursing Care. We welcome new residents into Assisted Living and Memory Support. Once you are part of the RiverWoods Durham community, you can transition to a different level of support if your needs change. This means you do not have to leave the community to find the right level of support.

Life gets a little easier when you have help with medication reminders, bathing, dressing, showering and more, so you can enjoy a variety of interesting programs and activities. Relax in your spacious private apartment with your own kitchenette, dining and living area, and private bedroom and bathroom, secure in the knowledge that help is nearby when and if needed.

I love how much my dad loves RiverWoods.

My dad has never been so happy – he has many friends and is involved in so many fun activities. He’s more active than I’ve seen him in years.

Top Assisted Living FAQs

  • What Health Care Services do you offer?

    As a nationally-accredited Continuing Care Retirement Community, at RiverWoods you benefit from living within a vibrant and active senior living community and the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a plan, no matter what your future health care needs may be. Join us as an independent resident, and if your needs change in the future, you are able to receive Assisted Living, Memory Support, or Nursing Care within the same community, cared for by staff you know and trust.

    When or if you ever need help with the activities of daily living, we’ll design a personalized plan to help you live life to its fullest — within the same community while maintaining your privacy and your highest level of independence.

    Sometimes, all it takes is one patch of ice, one missed step or one minor fall, and your entire life can be thrown into discord for months. A routine hip surgery or knee replacement becomes a significant lifestyle struggle. Be assured that rehabilitative care is here, when or if you ever need it.

  • What if my spouse needs health care before I do?

    Often spouses age differently, and one spouse may need more care than another. Caregiving can put a strain on any relationship, but at RiverWoods these relationships are preserved. One person can receive Assisted Living level of care, allowing the other to be a spouse, not a caregiver.

  • Who decides if I need more care and what type of care I need?

    Moving from Independent Living to Newfound Lodge is a conversation you participate in, not a decision made on your behalf. If care needs are increasing, and you need more help, we will invite you and your family to meet with our team and discuss what kinds of additional help you may need, and how RiverWoods can help. We would decide together if a change would be more beneficial for you and where it would make the most sense for you to receive that care.

  • What happens if I need a higher level of care?

    By choosing RiverWoods you are ensuring a complete continuum of care plan as your health needs change. Our residents are able to transition from Independent Living to Assisted Living to Memory Support or Nursing Care, whenever it is needed and for as long as necessary. Providing all levels of care within one community prevents a disruptive change or a second move when your health care needs have changed.

    Each person is unique, and we provide our health center residents with a highly-individualized, personal care plan. Each resident enjoys a private room and bathroom, in a comforting, home-like environment. Going beyond the activities of daily living to provide more intensive and individual care, our caring staff treats each resident with respect and dignity.

  • Do I need long-term care insurance?

    Long-Term Care insurance is not a requirement at RiverWoods. However, depending on what your policy covers, it may reimburse you for expenses when utilizing the services in Assisted Living, Memory Support, Nursing Care.
