Make sure you clearly understand what is meant by independent living vs. assisted living. They were able to provide more care than we expected, but we weren't expecting extra fees for those services. I'm looking forward to when all the renovations are completed and more dining rooms are available. I'm also looking forward to having more activities are going on once Covid restrictions end.

Excellent staff and very kind, welcoming residents. The attention to detail and focus on an active and high-end programming was the best sell. They are undergoing a large renovation which already looks beautiful. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a place for their loved ones.

What's happening at The Virginian

We've had mixed results. The good things are the level of care they offer from independent all the way to long term nursing is a benefit; it makes it easy as your parent(s) progress. The first group of staff we met were super friendly, very helpful and very encouraging. Their sales staff helped us in our decision to come here. I would tell others that you probably don't want to move in until next Summer because they are going through major construction. They are reconstructing the entire facility on the outside and inside; that includes every floor, every unit, every apartment, every wing, the common areas, the dining hall, the front door, etc.. Cleanliness is kind of a mess right now and that's been hard for my parents. It's confusing because certain halls are closed and the elevators go up and down, but not side to side. The front lobby/door is closed until Spring. There are certain things that would make it super hard for anyone wanting to move in right now. On the care side, I've had to be really pushy to get communication and clarity on who is responsible for making decisions, changes, and so forth. They've had a lot of changes in staffing, their current staff are temps from corporate. The chef is brand new which is why the food is up and down. Maybe next year once everything is done it will be better, but right now it's a little challenging.

Tour of The Virginian

There was a lot of construction going on when we came to tour the facility. When I mentioned my loved ones needs they suggested memory care and that would restrict her a lot so I knew that was not going to work for her. It was a good tour, just not the right fit for us.

This was so far the best situation for my mom, but she is unsure about caring for her dog here. We are keeping our options open on The Virginian. [name removed] was super helpful and gave us delicious salsa from the chef.

The Virginian is Extraordinary: caring, professional, experts, personalized care (not cookie cutter), even has excellent food.

Review on the Virginian, Fairfax VA. Our mom who is 99 and lives with us, just returned home to us from over 5 weeks of in-patient rehab, post surgery, at the Virginian, after falling and breaking her hip. Words of praise like extraordinary, outstanding, caring, professional, and even loving, just don’t do service to the care our mom received over this period. Many in our family and group of friends thought “OMG, this is it for her,” based on how often our aging parents just don’t have the will and energy to keep fighting the daily grinds of life after such an accident. Yet, in our opinion, while our mom is known for her grittiness and competitiveness, we believe the value the Virginian staff brought to “the table,” far exceeded either what we expected or even thought possible. And it made a HUGE impact on the morale and willingness of mom to hang in there and do the work required to get back home. Without exception, every single one of the many who served mom were “serving up their A game at every opportunity.” Their encouragement, sense of humor, occasionally tugging mom’s chain (who also pulled their chain), amazing ability to judge just the proper therapy to suit her ability and mood, were incredulous to watch. Of the 50 or so combined OT/PT sessions, her daughter or son-in law, attended some 95%. So, our opinion is not based on a few random encounters where the staff might have been on best behavior. Rather, the staff, to a person, truly cares about the welfare, both physical and mental of each patient. Our mom even raved about how good the food is, especially the soup. Ha! We objectively rate the Virginian 10 stars out of five. Some of the wonderful superstars included, but are not limited to [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], and [name removed]- a volunteer.

Solid performance, super-friendly

Staff is universally engaged, helpful, and cheerful - not one 'bad egg'. They really 'lean forward' to assist, anticipating issues and problems. Especially good 'onboarding' processes, with resident shepherds for the first couple of weeks to help new folks break in. Food is pretty good, with lunch being the weakest and most monotonous - dinner is almost always excellent. Extremely safe and clean throughout. Setting is pleasant and quiet. Excellent library - always a big help. My only criticisms: I do wish there were more activities, especially out-of-building experiences and road trips. Also, medical processes of all types for "independent" residents are kind of disjointed and uneven. It's all there - you just have to figure out how to access it. In summary, we looked at a LOT of facilities all across NOVA, over a year-long period, and selected The Virginian for a balance of reasons - I still think we got it right, for my Mom.

Number one choice if there was availability

The didn't have a room so quickly available (we had 3 days) but I liked it very much. I know they have a lot of Parkinson's things going on there, if we had more time we probably would have gone here, it was also more expensive.
