I think the warmth and caring exhibited by the staff is what sticks out the most about Brandywine Living. The reflections unit is the one for memory care. They have 6 floors, 4 for assisted living and 2 for memory care. I would certainly recommend the facility to others.

About the facility Brandywine Living at Alexandria

Close to the historic Old Town, Brandywine Living at Alexandria offers residents a luxurious experience in an ideal location in northern Virginia. Green space abounds in this area of the United States. Amble in the charming Armistead Boothe Park, explore the boardwalk at Ben Brenman Park, and go biking through the forest trails at the lovely All Veteran’s Park, all within a 10-minute drive from the facilities. Arlington, VA, Washington, D.C., and Mount Vernon make excellent day trips for those interested in exploring significant American landmarks.

 

This state-of-the-art, six-story building was just finished in 2018. With 116 suites, it offers residents the rare benefit of choice. Choose between six different floor plans, from the Assisted Living Semi-Private studio all the way to the Serenade Grand II suites, the most spacious option complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an airy living room.

 

Where Brandywine at Alexandria really shines is in its amenities. A comfortable movie theater shows residents’ favorite films from today and yesterday, a stately pub offers a place to reminisce, a therapy pool encourages fitness, and a restaurant-style dining room makes meal time a true highlight. The genuinely lovely common areas encourage residents to make new friends.

Nice Respite

Brandywine is a fine place with very attentive staff. It's clean, well maintained and has many amenities. Love the aquarium bar and the roof top lounge. The pool could be bigger but appropriate for its residents. We would consider a permanent stay if needed.

Depends which floor you live on

Depends which floor you live on for quality of care. My mother does not live on the most expensive floor. My mother's care has been inadequate. Have to constantly followup for all aspects of her care. Staff do bare minimum as far as her daily care. Unable to track who cared for her on a specific date because they rotate staff so much. The carpet in her space needs to be replaced, looks spotted soiled with dirt even though they have cleaned it. The decor throughout the building is attractive, but her personal space is basic and nothing to write home about. The water faucets in her space often stop working. She's not in memory care but I did see it on my tour. I was not impressed Very small space, they are crunched in the hallway during the day. There's a handful of staff spread out among the departments that go beyond and above basic care which would equate to their motto of excellence if most of their staff did the same.

Community Tour

Walking into Brandywine Living was like I was walking into The Biltmore Hotel. But I didn't like that the memory care unit was on a higher floor, and the outdoor space for the unit was just a small concrete pad with planters. Based on the cost, I’m sure their care was good. But they certainly seemed like they were more geared toward outward appearances, and the staff were less friendly than at other places I toured. I would not have placed my family member there. It was beautiful - it was the most lavish place I saw, but that wasn’t what my family member needed. Memory care seemed secondary. For assisted living, if you can afford it, I think it could be a great place.

Highly recommend

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

Friendly, Caring Staff and Everything Works

The community is very friendly. There is a physician assistant that my loved one sees, we were under the impression it was a doctor that would be seeing my loved one on a regular basis. It would have been nice to know this upfront. The CNAs are on the ball and can get a print out of the medications of my loved one. Anytime I call they are able to assist me in answering my questions. The front desk staff is willing to try to solve any issues that arise as well. The food is good, dining room is beautiful, and they have been willing to try and bring meals to my loved one's room to assist with their transition into the community. There has been sometimes that I've had to remind them of my loved one's dietary restrictions. There are plenty of activities for the residents to choose from. There are some games, outings, as well as music, and activities to assist with mindfulness.

Tour of Brandywine Living

Our tour experience with Brandywine Living was great! We loved the facility itself and the administrative staff were amazing. I wish my loved one would have gone here, but the location was a little too far for him.

Coming home

We chose Brandywine Living because my mom is very particular and this place is a step above the other places that we looked into. You walk in and feel like you are in a hotel, it is not institutional at all. My mom is in a 1 bedroom (550 sq ft) and it has been adequate for her needs. The food is my moms favorite part of the facility. They have chefs on site who prepare all the meals and they are made from scratch. I am excited for her to be able to get out and do some of the activities that they were able to provide before covid. I would most certainly recommend if you can afford it.
