Avery Point First Anniversary Party

Avery Point, an Erickson Senior Living-managed community in Short Pump, Virginia, celebrated its one-year anniversary with a party in the Emerson Square Clubhouse on November 17. Residents and team members enjoyed live music by The Kozy Cats, dancing, delicious food, great company, and more.

"As we celebrate our first anniversary, it's more than just a milestone for our community—it's a recognition of the meaningful relationships and a strong sense of community that has genuinely added value to the lives of our residents, team members, and families over the past year,” stated Executive Director Todd DeLaney. “Together, we've made a positive impact, helping people lead better lives within our growing, vibrant senior living community. Our future continues to be bright." 

A resident group of line dancers kicked off the night of dancing dressed in matching t-shirts embellished with rhinestones. Residents enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and delicious food prepared by Avery Point's Dining Team, including shrimp and grits, a bread bar, lobster mac & cheese balls, tasty desserts, and an Avery Point fruit display designed by Dining Director Chas Stetson. Bartenders kept the drinks flowing at Avery Point's bar, Magnolia's.

In 2023, Avery Point was named Best Senior Living Facility by the readers of the Richmond Times-Dispatch in the publication's annual Best of Richmond awards.  The community, situated on a beautiful 94-acre campus, opened in October 2022. Every stunning apartment home at Avery Point has convenient access to resort-like amenities, including a swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, theater, salon, on-site medical center, restaurants featuring chef-prepared cuisine, library, dozens of clubs, walking paths, and much more.

Avery Point is experiencing an unprecedented demand for its active retirement lifestyle. In response, the community is opening two more independent living resident buildings in early 2024—Boynton Place and Wilton Crossing—with reservations filling up fast. These new buildings bring additional amenities, including a new dining venue, an art studio, a multipurpose classroom, and a woodshop.
