  • Think again before you leave your loved one at Avalon

    On the [date removed] marks the death of my father .He was in Avalons care for three days the staff that has the best care givers in the industry let him fall knowing he was a fall risk from the very beginning ..They waited 24 hours to get a xray machine to find out his hip was broke and died 3 days later. I wished. I had gave my dad for what it cost at Avalon , a private nurse.My dad was a ww2 veteran who fought with the 740th Tank Battalion and served with George Patton. He deserved the best and Avalon was not it !

  • Although it is a little pricy, it does compete with other nursing homes in the Arlington area. At Avalon, dad is in a home-like situation in a small building with 22 rooms. In his building there are about 14 patients. He is well cared for and the staff has been there for many years. There is not a lot of turnover in the staff, and that adds stability as one of the benefits of Avalon. They keep him clean, shaved, and treat him with the greatest respect. And they know the residents and their needs.He loves the food there. They gave me a list of the families that have had loved ones there to get feedback.

  • Compassionate and Loving Care

    Three years ago this month, my Daddy had to be moved from a nursing home into another facility because of his Alzheimer's. They could no longer take care of him and they gave me only 1 day to find a place. I had been praying about Avalon Memory Care in Arlington because it was close to our home. I called and talked with [removed], Vice President of Avalon and he was so awesome to work with, and he was so compassionate and caring. He helped me figure out how to make it all work and we could move him in the next day and work out all of the details then. What a load off my shoulders. Daddy went home to be with the Lord on August 26, 2017 and from September 2014 until that time, he was cared for and loved by the compassionate caregivers. I never walked in for a visit that he was not dressed for the day except for a time when he had a cold and was in bed. Many times I walked in and one of the caregivers would be dancing with him, or maybe they were just assisting him with hugs and loving concern. Avalon also thought of the families by providing special events throughout the year where we could bring the extended family members together. Avalon was family for "Mr. [removed] or Papa", as many of them called him. As he lost his ability to carry on a conversation, he began to sing, not words but just a tune, and always the same thing, over and over! Never once did they complain about his constant singing because when he was singing, they knew that he was content with his "family". Alzheimer's is so difficult to experience the progression of the disease and knowing that he was so well taken care of really lifted the burden of uncertainty. We never worried about his needs being met. Many thanks to Avalon Memory Care, [removed] and all of the caregivers in Arlington #2 that crossed our paths over the past three years. God truly blessed us and we are so very grateful that He provided our Daddy with such an awesome "home" for the final years of his life. We will never forget all the special memories and loving care received at Avalon. Love in Christ, The Family of [removed]
