We chose Vitality Living Arlington because of the services offered for the money and it just seemed like it was the best place for her. The staff here seem very nice and management seems to be friendly as well. We have had no complaints and I would definitely recommend to others looking.

Hi John, we know that making a move to a senior community can be a difficult process and it makes us all so happy to hear of great experiences like this. Thank you for your feedback!
The staff members very helpful, knowledgeable, and they really know what they are doing. Everybody cares greatly about the residents and their well-being. The food is well cooked and nicely presented food, sometimes in the dining room it is a little noisier than she would like. They do have activities but not as many as they might have due to covid. The location of the facility is super convenient because it is practically on the metro line. I would recommend and already have.

Hi, Diane- we have such wonderful team members and we appreciate you sharing your experience and we strive to create such experiences for everyone! Thank you for your feedback!
They're very friendly and very accommodating. They put my loved one at ease during the interview and the tour. My loved one actually passed away before she could move in. We had already started the move-in process and were getting her room ready. Vitality was great with the unexpected change of events. They stored my loved one's furniture there for a month until I could get it out and into my own storage space. They were just very accommodating and understanding. The service was great, and they were just very kind, especially considering the pandemic. They were so great that I would have moved in myself if I were an older adult needing assistance!
It has good care, the therapy is excellent, the staff are friendly. The food variety is something I would change. They have an outdoor area you can go to.
Looks nice, kitchens are small. Not sure that is what my mom wants. Tour was very good, but I can see it being a bit difficult for my mom with her dog.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! Please considering calling us at [removed] to have your concerns addressed.
We chose Brookdale Arlington because the location was good for our family and they seemed very attentive in their presentation to us and the price was reasonable. We were pleasantly surprised with his room size, it was very nice. He was only here about 4 months, he went in walking and once he came out he no longer could walk.

Hi, thank you for your feedback!
The staff has been good, there have been some that got a little snippy. We let the community know, and this was taken care of. There are some aides that are dears. There are times that my loved one has needed extra care about open wounds, and the community tries to change the bandages, but the few times I have seen them change the bandages it was so tight, that I had to loosen the bandages for my loved one. The activities have been good, as far as working with the residents during COVID. They would bring puzzles and small activities for the residents to do in their room. The residents are starting to be able to socialize again out in the common areas. I feel this community has done an excellent job with COVID and keep and control of it.
We are very content with this community and how they have handled our loved one and how they communicate with us. The take very good care of our loved one. The care givers seemed so kind when we were first looking at this community. It has a very homey and comfortable feeling to it. The food is not very good, and the food itself is not very attractive looking. We live across the country and the staff has been incredibly excellent and always letting us know whats going on with our loved one. throughout COVID they have done an excellent job about care giving, and communication.
The building feels a little like a hotel, the room themselves are very nice and adequate. The food at this community is inconsistent. One thing that stood out to us most was the the location.
The rooms provided at Brookdale are pretty good in size, the food was just okay. The staff that served the food in the dining room weren't very friendly, they didn't seem very interested in the job or the people. The building has a very nice appearance to it. The overall staff members are very warm and friendly.
Like everything else in life, there's a learning curve, but once you figure out how things work, you can get good responses to problems. The aides do a good job, and it's very hard work. The nursing staff is very responsive to family members. They treat me like part of their team. Physical therapy and occupational therapy, provided there by Genesis, are excellent. The in house audiologist is excellent. Overall, Brookdale was the right choice for our family. It's not cheap, but still far less expensive than in-home care would be. On site medical help is so important, and they do a far better job than I could.
Brookdale Arlington was used for 30 days so that my cousin could get more physical therapy and continue to recover from a bad prescribed drug reaction. He said that the food was great and enjoyed the Bible study. He is loner so did not participate in other activities although there were plenty of other activities available. He was walking on his own and able to return to his apartment when he left.
It was rough adjustment process for my wife, and her move to this community. She was having some trouble at first, but she is doing pretty good now. I do feel she is safe, but I do feel the staff could be a little more attentive towards the residents. Other than that issue, the staff is pretty good. They do a good job with the cleanliness. There are good activities offered for the residents, and nice meals provided. The location is convenient for me to travel too, and they have good parking. This community is the right fit for my wife, and her needs.
This community was nice it has been renovated within the last few years. The community is well maintained and is clean. The staff was very nice on the tour very informative. They seem to offer quite a few things to keep residents that are able to do things busy. The location just didn't fit our need as well as other ones.
The location was a big factor in my decision. For this tour it was very nice and there were no problems. The community was a high rise building with no patio. My sister is use to walking out her patio and I knew this was not going to work. They do offer great options.
We toured this community for the care for my mom. The staff was caring. and friendly. We liked the friendly staff who showed us a clean environment. The menu was nice and we were impressed from the lunch that we were served at the tour. The activities would have been helpful. We like this community and would recommend it to others to tour for the care and value of loved ones care.
The staff at Brookdale were just amazing! Though my loved one has proven to require specialized care based on his condition, the staff were so accommodating and they did what they could to make sure that my loved one was comfortable and well taken care of. We also liked the fact that his room was very private, and that the facility looks very nice. This is such a loving and caring environment!
My loved one has really enjoyed himself since making the move into this community. The staff have all been wonderful to him and he seems to be making friends with the other residents. He has had no complaints about the food and has enjoyed the different activities they have to offer throughout the week. Overall we are all very pleased.
Like the facility and the location. Executive Director was very knowledgeable and passionate about her seniors, her staff, and her facility.
My tour of this community was a short one. The reason was because during our tour we saw a bug in one of the rooms. When I saw the bug I figured it wasn't a very clean community. The staff was pretty kind and friendly. This just wasn't the community for my parents.
