Assisted living

Live well with a little help from your friends

You or your loved one wants to live as independently as possible. For some seniors, Novant Health UVA Health System home health services are ideal. But if having caregivers closer at hand while maintaining your independence is important to you, then consider our assisted living facility.

At Novant Health UVA Health System Caton Merchant House, you determine the level of assisted living you want–from meals and cleaning services to more comprehensive care. Our flexible program focuses on your health, safety and comfort – leaving you free to enjoy your best quality of life.

Privacy and comfort in your new home

As a resident, you can choose to have your own apartment in our beautiful, nationally-accredited facility. This means you can personalize your “home” as you wish. We also offer semi-private apartments. All housekeeping services, meals and snacks are provided and you can enjoy daily activities and fellowship in home-like common areas and our lovely gardens. Our nursing staff is on duty 24 hours a day with round-the-clock security monitoring.

Convenient routine medical care

We also provide an on-campus medical office for health screenings, physical exams and simple office procedures. For residents who need an additional level of care, we also offer help with medications, bathing, dressing, toileting, safety monitoring, and diet.

Our goal is to provide you or your family member with a safe, comfortable home – with a little help when you need it. Call us today 703-335-8400 to arrange a tour and let us show you how we can help.
