This is the one I'm most interested in. It appears to have the most to offer and reasonable prices.

The facility was clean. It looks like they were about to serve lunch. So we did get to meet with some of the residents. Looked like they had a different activities. The staff was very vague and rude. Talking about financing before we even started the tour (in the hallway) not even in a room. Wanting to talk logistics pretty much as we entered.

Enjoying Life in VA - Loved one of resident/client
The Fairfax at Belvoir Woods - nice but true Souther efficiency!

It is a very attractive place but the staff is very inefficient and disorganized! You get s different answer to the same question for each person you ask -- accounting says one thing, the resident services people say something different, and the engineering folks (who do things like fix toilets, HVAC, etc) have another answer! The monthly statements are nearly unintelligible and don't even ask about how to hook up and get cable TV. So for a senior citizen, it's quite frustrating to have to call people all the time to straighten things out. It's like you never left your single family home that you owned, where you had to hire help, manage all the maintenance, research how to fix things, etc. it's like you never left!! You thought you were going to stress free living but -----no!!! The staff at The Fairfax is much more interested in leaving at 4 pm on the dot and you never, ever, ev er, ever (!) get the staff on the phone live in person when you call for help or with a question. You ALWAYS have to leave a phone message and wait (and wait and wait) for them to call you back. On the positive side, the residents are friendly, they run some very nice outings for the residents, and the food is mostly tasty. But don't expect your move-in and set up to go smoothly. I could not even close on my apartment on the scheduled date because they emailed my family and I a legal document the night before that required me to sign which would hold my children and grandchildren (!) responsible for all financial obligations for my health care ----should i ever run out of money to pay them in the future. Waiting 2 months to spring this required legal document on me within 24 hours of my move was, needless to say, quite stressful and really left a bad taste in my mouth. I had to reschedule my moving company and everything was in a disarray or we could let an attorney look it over. If you are considering the Fairfax, ask right away for all legal and financial documents or they will try to spring it on you at the last minute. Also, you will enjoy life here if you are social and don't mind the inefficient staff. Bring your patience.
