Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the maintenance of the property might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid alternative to this situation. You or your loved one can continue to live their lives as they wish while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your plan: transportation, parking, Waiting list deposit, field trips, wellness program, internet access, private phone, and initial assessment fee. The benefits that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, community activities, laundry service, transportation, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, and concierge services.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, primarily those who live with chronic disease or those who are in need of long-term treatment, proximity to hospitals may be a significant determinant in deciding which senior care facility is best for them. The top hospitals that service Alexandria include Inova Mount Vernon Hospital and Inova Alexandria Hospital. In total, there are 2 hospitals located in Alexandria which offer emergency services and other healthcare.
