The Virginian – Reviews
The most important advice i can give when placing a loved one in memory care is that the staff is more important than the facility. You want to meet with the unit supervisor and RN and assess their character and competency. You want to observe the staff at mealtimes and during the morning and nighttime routines as these are the most challenging and important times. Are they attentive? Do they work as a team? Are they kind and friendly or tired and cranky? Are they professional or just going through the motions? You want to observe activities and evaluate the activities coordinator and the overall program. And finally, you have to have a plan to actively participate in your loved one's care if you want the best quality of life for them. No facility, regardless of cost or resources or reputation, can replicate the care and tenderness of a loving family member or friend. Through observation and active participation, you MUST cultivate a respectful relationship with the staff to reach the best outcomes for your loved one. This includes respectfully working with the staff from an informed position to ensure accountability and higher quality care. If you treat the staff poorly, do not expect the best outcomes for your loved one. My mother was in the memory care unit at the Virginian and received excellent care. Overall, the staff was very caring and attentive to the needs of the residents. It is a tough and taxing profession, and I applaud the CNAs that pour themselves into it. I am especially grateful for Nurse Yenis. She is a saint and treated my mother as her own. The sales director, Jenna Ballard, was highly professional, knowledgeable and responsive. It wasn't perfect, but through patience, observation, active engagement, and remaining objective, my mother received excellent overall care and was treated with dignity and kindness for which I shall be eternally grateful.
I just toured this community - a best-kept secret in N. Va. My parents love that it has all levels of care available should they ever need them and they don't have to pay a large entry fee upfront! It is so conveniently located and the renovations are awesome - I know my parents will enjoy the wine cellar as well as the many different dining venues! Looking forward to getting them moved into their new home!
Highly recommend seeing the community for yourself. The newly renovated apartments and friendly staff, makes this a great place to live! Did I mention, they have a Tesla.
Truly wonderful place for your parents. The staff truly cares about the residents and the sense of community when you're there is something special. Highly recommend
Such a great community. Awesome renovations going on and the staff is incredible.
The Virginian is a lovely community. A bit overpriced for what I consider Vintage 1980s aesthetics, but nevertheless a nice place for seniors to call home, with sweet people working there. Our dad finally decided on The Virginian after courting the idea of moving into a community for a couple of years. The rehab department is excellent; 5-star rated as we know it. Will spare the details, but will say that we worked with Lauren, the social worker, who guided us through a pretty stressful time. The community has great nurses, too. We also worked with Alton in marketing for many weeks, who was so gracious to us, especially to my dad, and went the extra mile. Thanks! Sincerely, V.
My mother moved into the Virginian in Fairfax, VA last week. From the initial visit to see the facility through the signing of the paper work, Jenna Ballard has been a godsend. Jenna has personally looked after every step and made my mothers transition so smooth! She had a welcome basket with my mothers favorite treats, and a Welcome Home sign waiting for her the day we viewed the place. She arranged for my mother to get her 1st Covid Vaccine, prior to moving in, meeting her at the door and staying with her throughout. Then the day we signed the paperwork, she and her coworkers had champagne to celebrate. She has checked on my mother regularly. I am not so sure this is her job, as she is in sales, but she continues to be so supportive, keeping me in the loop, and never fails to forward me information, answer my texts or calls, every day of the week and at all hours. She is so sweet kind and hard working! The Virginian is fortunate to have her working there, and the residents too! I have to give a special shoutout to all the employees, from the women at the front desk, to the nurses, aids, doctors, dining staff, engineers, & the rest of the sales team. They have all welcomed my mother so graciously, and made her living there enjoyable, despite the COVID restrictions still in place. Another special shout out to Cameron Cousin, the exec chef at The Virginian. what a nice guy. He personally delivered her food on the 1st day to welcome her, asking if she had any other requests. He came back with extra dessert and drinks. I am so happy she is enjoying the meals, and the food quality is on point. My mom is happy and safe living there, and I know she is in good hands when needed. I look forward to the next year and watching the transition of The Virginian as they renovate and update! Its going to be beautiful!
We found the Virginian after months of looking for an independent living facility for my mother. Jenna Ballard was my contact and so informative and helpful. She sent me virtual tours of the facility, and all the renovation plans that look fantastic. She was able to get me all the information my family and I needed to make an informed decision and my mother made the move to her new home. She was welcomed by all and has been treated with such kindness since her arrival less than 2 weeks ago. She loves every employee she has met so far, is just over the top with how wonderful everyone is. I highly recommend the Virginian and appreciate all Jenna and the staff has done to welcome my mother to her new home.
After a somewhat traumatic health setback, our loved one was placed in The Virginian for rehabilitation. Our family knew that we had to decide on a long-term solution as returning home wasnt a viable option. Whats most appealing about The Virginian is that they offer different levels of care, including in-person rehabilitation and skilled nursing, in one building, via a rental model. Four star review as The Virginians fee schedule is unfortunately not straight-forward and there are random price increases. For example, literally everything is an add-on, additional fee, which made budgeting somewhat difficult. This differs from other communities we looked into. We will be paying just as much for add-on fees as we will monthly rent. Hopefully this will change in the future, as a strong recommendation. We can honestly say that our loved one, and our family, went from absolutely not considering The Virginian to falling in love with the staff, food, and overall accommodations. A few staff members who wed like to thank (we hope they see this). Nurse Diane in the nursing area was incredible as well as Dr. Gaddipati. Also Jennifer, one of the Directors, is a very knowledgeable nurse and kind. Our point of contact from the very beginning, Alton Ward, is very professional, knowledgeable and charismatic, helping in a great way to set The Virginian apart from others in the area we had also carefully considered. Thank you!
This is the best rehab team ever! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! They gave us hope in helping my father who has been suffering with the effects of a stroke (paralyzed). We came to them one year and a half after his stroke as an outpatient. The treatment here was unmatched and far exceeded the services at INOVA rehabilitation centers. They defied the odds at helping a one year and a half stroke patient who was bed-ridden and a hopeless case yet they did not give up and helped him stand up!
My family are so very grateful for all the loving care my mother received at The Virginian. The staff always seemed so caring towards the other residents as well. They were always willing to listen to us and were more than happy to assist my mother with anything she needed. We observed firsthand the professionalism and concern exhibited by staff for those residents requiring special care. We will be forever grateful for the care, love and attention given to my mother in her final days. On behalf of my entire family and all those who loved her I will forever be grateful for the staff who truly went above and beyond the call of duty.
Our family carefully weighed our options and The Virginian was unanimously the top pick. The Virginians Alton Ward, our first impression at the community, is a gem and a credit to the organization. Deciding on a senior living community in the midst of a global pandemic is extremely stressful, and takes a leap of faith, too, as one might imagine. Alton listened to our unique needs, which drastically shifted, and he shared how The Virginian could meet those needs. We also learned about the big remodeling project thats about to start, as we understand it, the continuum of care, and The Virginians management company. Prior to our mom moving in, the team set-up a nice outside meeting area for us as visitation restrictions were in place. We met the Executive Director, Andy; Administrator, Priscilla, and Head of Sales, Anna - all wonderful people who came out to welcome my mom. Andy and Priscilla routinely keep families informed of things happening inside, which is critically important, especially during these times. Although we havent been able to visit our mom indoors, we are confident that shes in the best hands, and for that we are thankful. Wed like to sincerely thank everyone at The Virginian for doing your unique part to help ensure our mom prospers in her golden years.
My mother, who had been a resident at The Virginian Retirement Community in Fairfax for almost ten years, recently passed. I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding staff and exemplary care which was provided to my mother. My husband and I consider The Virginian part of our extended family. Again, thank all of you for all of the provided tender loving care. We recommend the Virginian Experience highly when encountering retirement and extended care for a loving family member.
Staff are super friendly and eager to please.
wonderful place to work and very kind staff. Nurses are very attentive and make sure the residents are well taken care of. I would bring my parents here when the time is right. Lots of fun activities for the residents to keep them entertained
My parents are in Independent Living there, and absolutely love it! The staff is so wonderful! My Dad quickly made friends with whom he plays poker weekly. My Mom is very social and wants a lot of interaction, and doesnt miss an activity. I was worried in the beginning because my mom didnt want to leave her home of 40 years, but now without the stress of taking care of the house, shes more relaxed, happy, and active in the community there. My Dad still drives so they can drive less than a mile to the CVS and grocery store. I know that there is also a shuttle that goes there but they havent needed it. They are also still close to their old friends, neighbors, church in Vienna; so they continue to maintain their longtime relationships. This was a difficult decision for my parents and us to make, for my parents to leave their home and move to an apartment in The Virginian retirement community...but it has really been a blessing! By the way, Im confused by these other posts that dont appear to be relevant to The Virginian Retirement Community.
This place is a place where I will love to retire or my relative to retire.Food is not the main issue for your Loved one to be cared for.As someone said the staff,rehabilitation,activities you name them. Independent living residents are been covered 24, 7 nursing staff. Try it you will love to be there.The food problem was a long time ago now its wonderful.
