Elancé at Alexandria review
Overall experience: - When I initially moved my mother into this facility, it was called the The Fountains at the Washington House. We were happy with the services, staff, food, and facilities. Since it has changed hands several times, we have become increasingly disappointed. Cleanliness - renovations have significantly disrupted everyday life, especially sharing the elevator with dirty construction workers and their trash. The facility has received a coat of paint, but areas like the elevator have scuffed-up wood panels and floor and sometimes come with a distinct smell. Friendliness of staff - not through any fault of the staff, but there has been a significant turnover of staff, and staff training is lacking. Staff demonstrates a lack of knowledge of procedures and how to perform helpful tasks like transferring a call to family members. Sometimes, the inability to perform a task can be interpreted as unhelpful. Quality of care - my mother performs her own injections but has no sharps containers to dispose of her needles. When this issue was presented to the clinic, their feedback was to dispose of it in the trash. Meals/Dining. Rating - my mother used to be able to enjoy a glass of wine with her lunch and dinner; in addition to the dining facilities, my mother also had access to a snack bar in the lower part of the building where hot food, sandwiches, soups, fruits, and beverages were available to her. Unfortunately, upon changing hands several times, this option was eliminated. Additionally, the quality of food being served declined, despite the fancy names given by the dining facility, which have become the source of jokes by the residents. Activities - there is NO space for activities.

But I can honestly say that in spite of transitions of leadership posts, in most major areas in the community, including executive directors; ongoing renovations to meet RUI standards, unexpected infrastructure challenges; the team members, care givers, clinical staff, activities team, dining personnel - all are extremely genuinely dedicated to the well being, safety, and happiness of the residents.

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.
