    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairfax

    Fairfax, like much of the rest of Virginia, is deeply rooted in American history. It was an important location during the Civil War and is now home to many history-related attractions such as the National Firearms Museum. Seniors who enjoy learning about our nation's past may enjoy living in Fairfax. Those who are in need of help with activities of daily living, personal care and medication management have 57 assisted living facilities to choose from in and around Fairfax. Six of these facilities are located in Fairfax itself, with the other 51 located nearby. They are all regulated by Virginia's Department of Social Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairfax

    • The cost of living in Fairfax is 38 percent higher than the Virginia average and nearly 50 percent higher than nation's average. This may mean that goods and services are more expensive here, and seniors may find living less affordable than in other cities.

    • The Fairfax area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Inova Fairfax Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • The weather in Fairfax is warmer than one might expect. Highs in the fall and winter months remain in the 50 degree range, while summer months may see highs in the low 90s. Each month sees an average of 2 to 5 inches of rain.
