This is a very large and nice facility. Very clean and welcoming. All the residents seemed very happy and content. The Director of Sales, [name removed], was very knowledgeable and professional. She took the time to answer all of my questions and explained the CCRC structure to me in detailed. It relieved a lot of anxieties about this next phase of my life. I was shown a 1 BR and a !BR deluxe and was pleasantly surprise about their sizes. I think I could have been happy in either one but they were over my budget.

Highly Recommended and A Home Away From Home
I would tell my friends that they treat everyone with respect and they are very understanding. The rooms are the best in the area and they are like your own apartment. The rooms include a living room, bedroom, and your own bathroom. The price is great and comparable to other communities in the area. The service is very nice and the community is in an older building.

Good Place
The reason I picked this place is because my husband had been at this community, for rehab. They had all private rooms. My experience was good. No place is perfect, I was there every day. I'm not sure if it would be as good, if I wasn't there every day. They stopped me from coming to visit early on due to COVID. They made sure there were no visitors, it was awful but understandable due to the virus. They did this because of the good of the patients. I am able to understand why they did it. If we should have anymore pandemics, make sure that patients are able to come to the window for a visit. This is a first time a pandemic has happened in our lifetime. A friend had a significant other at another community and they found a way to allow visits.

about Elancé at Alexandria

Elancé at Alexandria offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Elancé at Alexandria 9.3 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
