Warm, friendly care for my husband
My husband has resided at the Avalon House on Woodland Drive for nearly 3 months now. His health is poor but his care is wonderful. All the care team are both loving and skilled. He is always kept comfortable, clean and well-fed. The Med-Tech makes absolutely sure that instructions from his medical care team are followed to the letter. The decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is never easy, but it is made easier by this very warm environment. And there is often laughter in the house, which adds to the good energy. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you so much for this lovely review. We are so glad you chose Avalon to care for your husband. We remember when you were touring that you shared this was a hard decision to make. It is never an easy one. We are so pleased you chose Avalon and trust the care your husband is getting is caring, and compassionate. We think the world of your husband as well as the other residents in the home. They have become like family.

Compassionate Care in a Residential Home Setting
My mother was a resident of Avalon on Woodland Drive from 2020 until her death in September 2023. I am forever grateful to the staff for the amazing and compassionate care she received throughout her time there and especially at the end. I could not have asked for a better situation. They really knew my mother. She needed help with all aspects of life and the team treated her with dignity and respect. She had her own room, she was well fed, always had clean clothes and was well groomed. She had the same main caregiver for all three+ years. The common areas were always clean and organized. I had looked at a lot of options prior to landing on Avalon, I liked the care philosophy and the cost compared to other private homes in the Northern Virginia area was incredibly reasonable. The team at Avalon made my mother's last years as good as they could be with Alzheimer's. Thank you for everything.

Thank you, Jane for writing such a kind and lovely review of Avalon House on Woodland Drive. I know we have said this to your family many times over the years but we just loved your mom. She was witty, charming, and very sweet. She became a part of our family from the day she moved in. She was a delight to care for. We really enjoyed working with your family. Your mother will be missed. We appreciate you took the time to share your feedback and review. Not only does it help Avalon, but it helps those looking to place their loved ones as well.

Thankful and grateful for Dad's care
Dad has been a resident at Avalon 7 for more than 4 years. The staff welcomed and made him feel at home from day one. Always pleasant, attentive, and calm, the staff ensures dad's needs are met, he is very comfortable, very well fed, clean, and safe. The staff's diligent attention to dad's medical needs and their communication with us and his medical providers gives us peace of mind knowing that he is in good, professional, and caring hands.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We always feel it is important for families to tour as many communities as possible so they find the right fit for their loved one. What may be right for one resident, may not be for another. I am so glad your family did that and found the place that is best for your loved one.

Our Tour Experience
It was good, but I was expecting more showing on a virtual tour vs. talking. It ended up just being a discussion with one staff member. It was a great discussion though. It gave me enough information to know that I would consider them if I decided on long term care vs. home care.. They seemed to have a very low patient to caregiver ratio. It seemed like they were set up to make sure that the person being cared for would have continuous care. I just wish I could have seen more of the facility on the tour.

Would recommend this community
Avalon House is very clean, and we liked how this was a house and not a large community. It had a limited number of residents, and it was quite. We thought our loved one would be most comfortable here. Overall it was a great first impression.

Affordable care for dementia
Nice group home setup, max 8 residents, in a "McMansion" home on a quiet street, good for residents with dementia. Spacious open kitchen/DR/LR setting good for family visiting. Currently this house (among others in small Avalon chain) serves dementia residents, and the price is excellent for the care, nearly half the cost of nursing home. Attractive environment inside, clean, and no smells other than aide [name removed]'s good cooking. Two main live-in aides are easygoing but attentive, setting a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We moved Mom and Dad there recently since our 24/7 aide setup at home couldn't handle bed-to-wheelchair transfers anymore for Dad, but Avalon staff managed to do it, so Dad was able to wheel around again. (Dad passed away recently after six weeks there, but I'm satisfied that he received excellent care.) Avalon has an efficient setup, and staff are thoughtful and flexible in figuring what works best for the individual. They know what they're doing. With live-in staff, care is consistent, and they know residents' habits well. Lovely people. One daughter of a resident we met said her mom has been there five years (a testament in itself) and without one bedsore. I'll be telling friends about this place.

so far so good
I think the move-in process could be a little bit more streamlined, as the process was a little bit unorganized. It would have been helpful if they had an organized process to get us acclimated and let us know what we were facing and what to expect. The owner there is really great though, and keeps us informed and is quick to respond any time we have any questions. Overall it has been a very positive experience. So far so good.
