Recent reviews of Nursing Homes in Fairfax, VA
Forest Hills of DC in Washington, DC
4.6

My sister has lived at Forest Hills in the Health Care Center for a while. Before the pandemic, they had wonderful activities as well as great nursing care. In the pandemic they have done an incredible job to keep everyone safe, to figure out ways to have safe activities and/or virtual or safe visitation zones (following CDC guidelines). The staff is working under challenging circumstances and they continue to be kind, patient and deliver high quality care. We are so very grateful my sister can live in such a great facility.

This was a nice place for my father. The staff was very good and were very caring. The food seemed to be good. They had activities for everyone to participate. I would recommend this for other families looking for good care for a loved one.

Overall my mothers happy. Communication was tough at the beginning but has gotten better. They set up covid shots for the residence and made that really easy. The community is neat and clean and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend this community to others.
