Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Alexandria may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Alexandria care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Alexandria, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Assisted Living facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Deer Park, Hawthorne and Barnaby Woods.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Washington, Fairfax and Silver Spring.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10. Like assisted living communities, staff at care homes typically help residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and medication management. Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
