I would not recommend this facility to anyone that would be on the third floor.
Elance at Old Town is a terrible place for patients on the third floor. No activities, no entertaining or music, no evening supervision, requests for bed safety ignored, meds often not distributed by the attendant, no nurses, residents are forgotten, Don't send a loved one there as my died due to sleeping pills not given due to attendant leaving early for a party. I forgot to mention that I visited my husband very day for at least two to three hours and additional time during the weekends. If your loved one has the unfortunate experience of choking when eating, even occasionally, you need to bring a throat electric vacuum to dislodge the food contents for this facility has none among other items needed on the third floor. If your loved one dies in this facility

Wonderful activity programing!
Elance at Old Town offers a fantastic array of activities, and I have been particularly impressed with the Life Learning Classes provided by RUI. The Paint and Sip class is my absolute favorite! The professional instructors make each session enjoyable and enriching. The atmosphere is just perfect, and I've found it to be a great way to unwind and express my creativity. What sets Elance apart is the variety of activities available for different care levels, contributing to a vibrant and engaging community. I highly recommend exploring these classes to add a wonderful dimension to your lifestyle at Elance

We really like the facility and the only reason we gave the overall score a 3 is because they need more staffing. We are hopefully the staffing will improve.

Community Tour
I had a lovely tour at Sunrise of Old Town Alexandria. The facility was beautiful - absolutely gorgeous. The lady who did the tour was very nice. She tried to find out what exactly my loved one needed, and explained to me what they could provide. They had only just opened, so they didn’t have very many residents at that time, and I was hoping to have more people for him to interact with. Also, the cost was out of our range. But I thought it was a very nice place.

Feel confident about taking respite for yourself
We went with Sunrise of Old Town Alexandria because it was a brand new facility and I feel that the caliber quality of staff in a brand new facility rends to be at a higher level so that appealed to me. It is also 3 blocks away from where I live so it is convenient. I was impressed when I visited with the staff, they were very professional and had a great level of knowledge about dementia care. I would say that if you are considering respite care, make sure that you ask a lot of questions because I do not think the staff is geared towards respite, they are geared more towards long term care. It was a little bumpy the first few days trying to figure out what we needed to provide. If you have devices needed to be used such as hearing aids, it is helpful to show the aids how to use them and clean them. I would absolutely recommend the facility to other families.

Highly recommended
We had an excellent chef to start with when I arrived and then she quit. They brought an intern in to train sous chefs and the biggest problem has been the food arrival time and the temperature of the food. I know that they are trying to work on it. The activities director is extremely versatile and very welcoming to new ideas. The facility is pet friendly, I was able to bring my cat and we all really enjoy the animals. They do have a designated area outside for smoking. I would definitely recommend Sunrise to others looking, the architecture is amazing as well as the location. Next door is the priory which is now owned by classical movements, so we can sit outside and enjoy amazing music for free.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Virginia regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Virginia regulations for Assisted Living.
