Recent reviews of Memory Care in Fairfax, VA
Aarondale Community in Springfield, VA
5.0

The staff at Aarondale community is great, we are very happy with the care services our loved one as been receiving. They have done an amazing job with containing COVID. Its not a very large community, and for a good part of the spring and into the summer the residents had to stay in their rooms, as well as eat in their rooms instead of in the formal dining area. During this time the staff members would come around to engaged with the residents since they had to cancel most of the activities. However the residents are now allowed out of their rooms and can social distance. What impressed us the most was the staff and how the facility has a very comfortable and homey feeling to it.

Sunrise of Fair Oaks VA in Fairfax, VA
4.0

Sunrise was good in some ways and not perfect in others. Communication among the staff could be improved. I think when dealing with folks with higher need levels, they didn't do a great job of developing and following a good plan. I think that taking what someone with memory issues says, at face value, is something they could work on. Once some of the issues were brought to their attention they did kind of step it up, and I think they did okay, with our more unique case, in terms of needs.

Everybody was always so friendly, from the person at the front door to the nurse that was helping out they were amazing. My dad did go into hospice and they were able to provide that here and step up the nursing care so he was able to stay in his room which was wonderful so we did not have to find another place to live. I would absolutely recommend this facility to other families
