We are so unhappy with Elance at West End we are moving our relative right away. Over the past 10 months this went from a wonderful vibrant community to a horrible experience on so many levels. Management is either unable or unwilling to make changes since RUI took over the property. The same food is served over and over tastes very salted and the variation residents used to get especially for lunch and dinner is gone. My mom complains nonstop she eats the same unhealthy food day in and day out. The nursing group has issues and we had to take her to a lab for all tests as they cannot get the results and ignore physician offices resulting in missing appointments and jeopardizing care. Call time for pendants can run over an hour often (told to me by several families). They have slashed a lot of extras residents used to get and jacked up the rates 7% with a $150 junk fee on top of the money paid for care levels. This is a residence in turmoil with staff that seems indifferent and can be rude. Plus, RUI does not return messages to address the issues and just ignores the residents and families when they want to discuss what's going on. I will be very relieved when my relative leaves at the end of the month and goes to a better assisted living.

It's no longer Brandywine (as of 2023). It's now called Elance at West End and the new owners are doing everything in their power to turn this once-great place into a nightmare for residents and their families. STAY AWAY UNTIL NO LONGER RUN BY [name removed].

Elancé at West End is a beautiful community! The staff is like family and it is very welcoming as soon as you walk in the door. The signature programs like RUI University lifelong learning classes are a great free resource for residents and the outside communities!

Brandywine Living is amazing and we couldnt be happier. The environment that Brandywine creates makes all the residents feel independent and confident but at the same time medical services are in place to keep them safe and not at risk. The staff is so professional and polished as well as being very approachable and responsive. The minute you walk in the door you will be impressed! We wish we could give it more than 5 STARS

One of the main reasons I buy Mercedes vehicles is the expectation of superior service and interaction with personnel at the dealership. I recently had my GLC300 picked up for service and a Virginia State Safety Inspection by Mercedes Benz of Alexandia. I cant rave enough about Zack and the ease of scheduling the entire experience from making the initial appointment, updating me about the progress of the work and scheduling the return of my vehicle. Every aspect of the was performed with attention to Corona Virus precautions. Everything was done to mitigate my concerns about potential spread of the virus. The service was done when promised and every schedule was meet. My vehicle was returned in immaculate condition. As usual, the work was done perfectly. Even the process to pay was completed with full concern for the spread of the virus. Mercedes Benz of Alexandria fulfills my expectation of Mercedes quality.

Brandywine is a beautiful facility and for the most part the staff is wonderful and they are nice compassionate people. The food was wonderful and there were many choices for the residents. It sometimes could take a while to actually place your order and receive your food though which I know many of the residents were frustrated with. My dad moved in when there were less than 40 residents and I will say that for the most part we were really satisfied with his care. Nothing is perfect and of course not all personalities mesh but I was pretty pleased and more importantly, he seemed to be happy. My dad had cancer and took a downward turn pretty quick and at first he had Palliative care through Capital Caring and that seemed to work in association with Brandywine. Having the Brandywine doctor proved to be challenging ( for my family anyway) due to her only being there one day a week and it being so challenging to get her on the phone, but in all fairness she had many many patients spread all around town along with patients at their normal offices. Now here is my reason for only giving three stars. My dad was released from the hospital on a Monday and thank the lord we had started hospice care with the help of Capital Caring ( whom by the way are fantastic) and we had no idea his time left was so short. By Friday morning it was clear things were bad and I immediately notified the hospice nurse and she ordered all medications and oxygen to make what time he had left more comfortable. He got two rounds of the medications which were given every 3 hours and then there was a shift change and all the hospice meds were misplaced. After they were finally found I had to leave my dad and beg the nurse to come every single time he needed his medication because they did not come to administer them. Those three hour intervals turns into five hours a few times before he would get his medication. To say I was upset is an understatement. And this is when there were 40 residents. No where near being even slightly full given how many rooms there are. It was heartbreaking that my fathers last two days were not peaceful and that he was not made comfortable. I spoke with them after his passing and honestly I did not feel like they understood this. All I wanted was for my dad to pass not in pain and to have the care he deserved. It is not cheap to have a loved one there,and to me it was devastating the care he received in those final two days.
