Services and Amenities

Life that’s Care-Free and Convenient

At RiverWoods Durham, we enhance your independent life with a full array of amenities and services. Take a class in our state-of-the-art fitness center, dine where you like in one of several venues, enjoy access to the Wellness Center, library, woodshop and more. Within the same campus, we offer a full continuum of care with Assisted Living, Memory Support, and Nursing Care if your health care needs ever change. Our complimentary scheduled transportation provides access to the surrounding community.

Without the burden of home maintenance, housekeeping, or even cooking your own meals, you’ll have time to meet new friends, participate in activities right outside your door, and make the most of this time of your life.


I trust RiverWoods.

I'm glad the RiverWoods way of life has come to Durham. Their reputation for financial stability is one of the reasons I chose RiverWoods for my retirement. As a UNH grad and a huge Wildcat fan, I couldn't have found a better location to enjoy the best years of my life!


These are a few of the many services that are offered to our residents:

  • Complete Home Maintenance Every aspect is taken care of, inside and out — from landscaping and exterior maintenance to bi-weekly housekeeping, weekly flat linen laundry, and annual heavy cleaning.
