About Warm Hearth Village

Warm Hearth was founded in 1974 by Wybe and Marietje Kroontje, Dutch immigrants who came to the U.S. after World War II. Dissatisfied with the conditions they observed in typical nursing homes of the day, and eager to give something back to the country that had given them so much, they set out to develop a community rooted in the belief that “there had to be a better way” - a place where the dignity of each individual is respected, where seniors are encouraged to live life to the fullest, and where all people are welcome.

We are a single campus, independent community situated on 220 beautiful wood acres in Blacksburg, VA. The work we do is dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors of all socio-economic backgrounds through a wide range of choices in housing, services, and care.
