About Poet's Walk

Poet’s Walk is the only senior living provider in the County designed and built exclusively for
residents with memory impairments such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy-Body and other
related dementias. While other assisted livings may offer a “wing” of memory care rooms, our
brand new, state-of-the-art community features 60 spacious, light filled apartments all on one level. We offer a variety of private studio and companion suite floor plan options, as well as finely appointed common areas and professionally landscaped outdoor courtyards with walking paths.

We are passionate about providing seniors with the highest quality care and service in attractive, comfortable, state-of-the-art communities. Our highly trained staff is deeply committed to providing compassionate memory care and proactively communicating with residents and their families. They go through rigorous training in all aspects of dementia including behaviors, communication, activities and personal care.We are proud to be the only community in Spotsylvania.

Construction is complete and our beautiful new community opened its doors at the end of July, 2013. Please visit for a tour to see floor plans, apartment options, program information and get more detailed information about the property.
