Seniors flocking to America's richest county

Do you know where the richest county in the United States is? It’s not near Beverly Hills, Malibu or the Hamptons. It’s Loudoun County, Virginia, and according to Erickson Living, a large senior living company, Loudoun County is quickly becoming a hub for retirees from across the United States.

Seeking to meet the needs of the county’s growing senior population, Ashby Ponds, an Erickson community in Loudoun County, is adding a new wing which will open on April 4, 2012.

Red Robin View will be a 105,000 square foot facility which will feature 80 apartment homes. The community will offer independent living, but for those who need Assisted living or Alzheimer’s Care, those options are also close by.

Loudoun County is located in northern Virginia, and is about 45 miles west of Washington, DC with a population of just over 300,000.

According to Ashby Ponds’ executive director David Gallagher, seniors have been flocking to the area to take advantage of its natural beauty, and Red Robin View specifically will offer “a nature-rich landscape full of trees, ornamental grasses and bushes, all surrounding a gorgeous pond with an adjoining gazebo that residents can enjoy each day.”

Perfect for a springtime grand opening.
