I visited this facility

I wanted to write about Spring Hills in Alexandria, VA where with the help of Howard Landron from caring.com I was able the find a perfect fit for my mother. The facility from the very start was full of a staff that made me feel that it was the right new home for my mother. I have to admit, however, that if not for the help of Howard Landron, I would not have been able to make that move with any confidence. From the very start Howard was informative, caring, and reassuringly confident in a way that eased the stress of the decision making process. He was truly a godsend throughout the extremely stressful process.

Provider Response

Thank you your recent review. We are happy to be the right fit for mom.

The process to send a close loved one to assisted living is always a difficult one, but the transition was made pleasant by the wonderful staff at Spring Hill Mount Vernon. The staff was amazingly transparent with the whole process and provided us with plenty of information. The tour of the building was spectacular. I have never been in such a facility that felt so homey and clean. We were able to look inside some of the rooms to get a feel for it and they were so well maintained and decorated. Each unit was a mini apartment. We got to see the activities that were provided for the residents along with the meal plan, and it made choosing this place so easy and stress free. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my mother in the care of this place and would recommend it to others without a doubt.

I toured this community earlier and was really impressed by the staff. Everyone is very Kind, friendly and respectful. I felt like I was right at home with the facility being clean and the food being healthy and delicious. My grandpa will be moving in, in the next couple weeks. Couldn't be happier about the decision

The staff was very friendly which was a relief because other places were lacking in this department. We even got to eat there during lunch time and it was amazing to see that the food quality was superior to even what i make at home myself. The place was clean, brightly lit and seemed to have gone through new renovations. Keep up the good work!

I visited this facility

At Spring Hills, residents were in wheelchairs and not talking, and I am not ready for that kind of community at all. We couldn't really interact with any of the residents; there were just a few at the tables finishing up their breakfasts, and they were all in wheelchairs. It was very clean. I only met the administrator, and he was very nice, gave us a great tour, and was just terrific. I am just not at that point yet.

Provider Response

Thank you for you kind feedback about our Executive Director. All reviews are greatly appreciated.

My friend moved into Spring Hills 3 months ago, and he really loves it there. He was at another place for about a year, and seemed to be in a spiral decline there, but at Spring Hills he has really perked up. He loves the food and the great selection of food too. The staff seem to genuinely care about the residents and the care show that. He enjoys The outings and social activities.

Provider Response

Thank you for your positive review and feedback. We truly appreciate it.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I have been a resident here for 3 years. The apartments are roomy and comfortable and the food is top notch. I can't drive any more and like that the facility can provide transportation to nearby medical appointments. The staff are caring and try hard to make the residents' experiences good ones. They have lots of activities for those who want to participate.

Provider Response

I moved my Father into Spring Hill Mount Vernon several months ago. The staff is wonderful. They take great care of him, are very friendly, and truly care about his wellbeing. The facilities and activities are great as well and he loves the food (especially the French Fries). I couldn’t ask for better place for him.

Provider Response

I visited this facility

The staff at Spring Hills of Mount Vernon are very nice and very helpful. The rooms are tiny. They have fewer residents, and they seem to have a few more activities going on. It seems to be a newer facility.

I have moved my mother into this facility several months ago. The staff is really caring and attends to her every need. She loves the menu, which is very extensive comparing to other communities and enjoys the activities. Both the nursing and administrative staff are very responsive and eager to help. It has been a very smooth transition largely due to the helpfullnes of the staff. My mother was very anxious about moving to assisted living but the people there were waem and inviting and the personal concierge really ensured mom is happy and active. Thank you Spring Hills. Way to go.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind words and positive review. We truly appreciate your feedback.

My brother moved here after a 4 month stay in a dreadful place in Stephens City (near Winchester). He is fairly independent, so he doesn't need a lot of care, so I can't comment on the level of care provided by the CNAs. However, from what I've seen, it is good. (Certainly I haven't heard anyone be mean!) Spring Hills is way, way better than my brother's former residence. He likes the fact that you can order from a menu, order as much as you like, and order sodas if you want. He also likes the fact that the food is served for several hours at a time rather than having to sit down to eat "supper" exactly at 5 every night as before. (Food was poor at other place - for example, supper consisted of a sandwich and soup, plus lemonade and dessert.) The staff seems great, his studio apartment is small but comfortable, and there are activities for him, although as a fairly young man, many don't appeal much to him. The community counselor takes him out to lunch every month or two, and the shuttle takes him to medical appointments. I didn't think we could afford Spring Hills, but the community counselor was terrific and worked with us so that we could. They involve me in formulating a care plan, which I like, and keep me informed of anything I should know. I feel that I can call them whenever necessary, and that I will get a response. Overall, I would rate this facility somewhere between a 4 and 5, although it is only the second assisted living facility I've visited, so I don't have a lot of experience with them (luckily!)
