I visited this facility

The facility was really nice and it was a really big facility. There was a swimming pool inside, gym, small golf course outside and walking trail. Also I checked out the dinning room, which was really nice and well organized. all the staff and resident were really nice and friendly and they took good care of us. You could see that some of the residents who lived there enjoyed living there and most of them seemed happy. We sat down in the dining room and the food was great they had many different kind of drinks, food and deserts. The facility was very clean and I really enjoyed visiting the place. It was a great experience. I also forgot to mention that there was a big auditorium, where sometimes the residents would have movie nights on a big screen projector and concerts.

When walking into this facility, one can see where the money goes. They keep it extremely clean and provide services ranging from games to church services in the facility. The staff are constantly on call, however, did not appear to care about their jobs at hand. They were negligent to my great grandmother and, though the facility was nice, I would not recommend it to others. The fact that a door was heavy enough to break someone's arm is ridiculous, it should not be allowed ESPECIALLY in a retirement home.

The Fairfax opened in 1989 for the non-profit Army Retirement Residence Foundation-Potomac (ARRF-P). It offers an ideal lifestyle to retired officers of the U.S. Uniformed Services, CIA, FBI, Foreign Service, and others with a close career relationship to the military. The most recent addition to The Fairfax is the newly renovated Health Care Center, which provides assisted living, memory care assisted living, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services.

The beautiful 60-acre campus is located at the edge of Fort Belvoir, Virginia, offering golf courses, commissary, PXs, Officers Clubs, and more. On the Fairfax grounds, residents enjoy walking trails, a seven-acre stocked lake, tennis courts, a putting green, and driving cage. The independent living options offered include 347 apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms and thirty-five cottages.
