Provide an exceptional living experience.

Working in a retirement community like Covenant Woods is unlike any job you’ll ever hold. You don’t work with regulars, you work with residents: familiar, friendly faces you will see and interact with every day. You’ll get to know inspiring people, and be surrounded by a family-like team of good-natured staff who aren’t just here for a good paycheck – they enjoy coming to work, and are rewarded with healthy relationships, consistent hours, and a welcoming workplace that feels like home.

Meet our Extended Family.

Covenant Woods is the parent company to Woodhouse Catering and Advance Care Home Health & Hospice.

Woodhouse is built on a well-known reputation for providing quality foods and outstanding service to our guests. We know how to feed a crowd, make every guest feel special, and exceed our clients’ expectations. And we do it all at a value unmatched in Central Virginia.


As a non-profit home health team, we provide our neighbors with the highest-quality care in Central Virginia in the comfort of their own home — and we do it with the the highest-quality skilled nurses, therapists, and hospice teams in our community.



Food Service

Whether front or back of the house, dining employees at Covenant Woods’ four venues enjoy regular, better hours than they’d get in a restaurant. Servers receive compensation similar to tips, based on the number of residents served and quality of service provided.

Maintenance and Housekeeping

Covenant Woods is maintenance-free for residents, meaning we rely on experienced housekeepers, landscapers, technicians and other skilled positions to keep the community running.

Nursing and Healthcare

As an accredited continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Covenant Woods provides a full spectrum of healthcare for adults age 62 and over, including 24-hour licensed nursing, assisted living, and care for individuals with memory impairments. Care is provided by a compassionate team of licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, and other skilled providers.

Management, Services, and Support

From upper management and social work to finance and fitness, a range of roles are required to keep Covenant Woods operating efficiently and providing residents with an exceptional living experience.

“Unlike a job as a waitress in a restaurant, I get better and more regular hours at Covenant Woods. I get to be home before 9 o’clock every night. The consistency in hours and pay is a nice thing to have. It’s a lot less stressful in my opinion – a lot less stressful.”
