Avery Point Staff Appreciation

‘Tis the season for cookies, cocoa, cheer—and recognizing staff members who go above and beyond for residents at Avery Point, the Erickson Senior Living community in Short Pump, Virginia, every day!

The 2023 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF), made possible through generous donations from warm-hearted residents, will be dispersed among eligible employees to thank them for providing industry-leading services that enhance the community’s engaging, worry-free lifestyle. 

Avery Point residents contributed $120,473 to the SAF, with 93% of residents donating to the fund. 

“I’d like to extend a huge thank you to all the residents who contributed to the fund this year,” says Executive Director Todd DeLaney. “It’s the relationships between residents and staff that make Avery Point the vibrant, welcoming community it is.” 

At Avery Point’s Staff Appreciation celebration held on December 5, Avery Point team members had the opportunity to thank residents for the gift and contribute personalized messages of gratitude to the "Thank You" poster. 

A total of 111 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.

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.
