We visited Hermitage at Northern VA. It was great and seemed like the perfect place for a senior. The room was nice and clean. There was a nice salon and good food in the dining area.

I have visited Hermitage In Northern Virginia in the past. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The rooms were nice and very clean. They have their own kitchenette and bathrooms, which is good. They also had the typical social activities different outings. They had movie nights too. There were also entertainment and live music. They also take the residents out to the barber shop. It was a fair community.

We chose Hermitage for a combination of location and price, and they provided the care level that we needed. The food is OK, and the staff is very knowledgeable.

I'm at The Hermitage in Northern Virginia. I have no problem at all with the people working here. They're really good. They're very kind. However, one problem is so many of them are immigrants, so language isn't that all great, but they are young. Their rooms and their apartments are fine. You have quite a choice. I'm in assisted living and I have a full kitchen. We celebrated the place's 50th anniversary a few years ago, so it has been here a long time. A lot of their activities are outside. We are affiliated with the Methodist church, and there are several churches that provide services. There are a lot of games. One thing they love very much is bingo. The Hermitage is just a wonderful community. I chose this one because of its grounds and its locations.

Independent Living Reviews for Hermitage in Northern Virginia

I visited this facility

I liked The Hermitage very much. They had a studio apartment, which was nice, and I liked that it had a lot of activities that appealed to me in a fairly intellectual route. Education was possible via the community college, and there were lectures and events involving the community that were more than the Bingo around. They had in-house care of different levels with physical therapy and doctors available in the community. You can also have free transportation to appointments within ten miles. It had a nice location too -- right in the middle of where I used to live. They have different levels of care, including respite care, which was nice.
