GORDONSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Village at Gordon House says it will be closing its doors next year.

The senior living community announced Tuesday, November 8, that it recently notified staff, residents, and their families of an anticipated closure date of March 1, 2023.

“We have enjoyed a wonderful 40 years serving seniors and their families in this community,” Executive Director Tom May said in Tuesday’s announcement. “This was an incredibly tough business decision, but recent trends in the market for assisted living facilities in the area have made continuing operations unsustainable and we will have to close our doors in 2023.”

The Village at Gordon House currently has 26 residents and 77 employees. It says it is working to identify similar facilities throughout the area to assist with rehousing solutions.

“We want to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible for our residents and that they are well taken care of,” May told NBC29.

The Dogwood Village says it has been talking with May and families of those who are being affected.

“So far we are going to do everything we can to help those at Gordon House transition,” Lance Long with Dogwood Village said. “We’ll help transition as many as we can as long as we can appropriately care for them, and we can meet their needs.”
