I visited this facility
Heatherwood Retirement Community in Burke, Virginia is a wonderful, inviting community! Residents get to live in apartments with the added benefit of caregivers that are on site twenty-four hours a day. This is a wonderful environment for elderly people who still want to be independent but may need more care in their old age. The apartments have a lot of space and are easily accessable for those who may need help with mobility due to needing a walker or wheelchair. The community has a gym, a chapel, and many other recreational features for residents and their guests to enjoy! They have parking for those who drive, as well as transportation for those who don't. They even have an on-site pharmacy! Each apartment has it's own bathroom and kitchenette, as well as emergency call services so that residents can get in touch with a nurse when needed. The staff are very friendly and helpful! Room service is offered as well. It is a warm and loving environment and many of the apartments have a pretty view! I would feel very confident that my grandmother would be taken care of at Heatherwood!
I am a friend or relative of a resident
This facility is well built and well maintained, and decorated like a comfortable but upscale home. The staff is friendly and respectful, very familiar with all the residents. The head nurse knew my grandmother used to be a nurse, and addressed her as an esteemed peer. The staff kept a close eye on her and her eating habits, and were instrumental in identifying when her dementia worsened.
