Assisted Living Reviews for The Jefferson

My father started in The Jefferson in their rehab hospital, and we were very impressed by their care. I really feel that the staff is incredibly tolerant and helpful. The rooms are clean, and what’s nice is that they have specialized assisted living, so my father has some significant needs that other assisted living wouldn’t provide for him, but he gets round the clock care, checked on every two hours, and help with things like toileting and personal hygiene, which some assisted living don’t really help with. So the staff gets the level of care that he needed, and that was really important. I’ve spent some time there, and I have noticed that people are dealing with difficult patients but they never lose their cool, and they’re always kind and professional.

The Jefferson wasn’t too bad. My father was in the rehab section for 3 or 4 months. It wasn’t staffed quite to the level it probably should be for a rehab. There were a couple of good people and then a couple of people who were probably too busy to do much of anything. So it was when you’re trying to make sure that medications are being administered and food is being delivered and provided. The food was nothing spectacular. They have a full calendar and a lot of activities going on, but it’s also a condominium facility. It could have been better, but they were missing things. Each staff member would take the blood pressure. They weren’t really communicating together, so it was too many unconnected people dealing with the place. They could coordinate the treatment and tell people what’s coming as opposed to dropping in when it’s convenient for the doctors and have the doctors schedule the time.

The only thing I didn't like about The Jefferson was that there was no parking. Parking was really bad. The people are nice and friendly. It was all clean; it smelled good. They did have people who were cleaning up or picking up or doing something while I was there. There are different things for different people, including card games. They take you on bus tours. They also show movies there.

The Jefferson is very organized and comfortable, it just felt right. The room I looked at was a one-bedroom with a den that you could use as an office or TV room, a living room, a small kitchen, and another room, which you could use as a guest bedroom. The one I looked at was carpeted. The staff I met was quite nice. The entire facility was very clean. They had exercise classes in their pool. They had a gymnasium and a library. They had a series of events sponsored there.

We visited The Jefferson over a year ago. It is not in the location that we want. It's in a congested area of Arlington. It didn't give us the homey feeling. The place was quite large. But the staff were very nice and accommodating. There was one young lady who gave us most of the time. The common area was nice too. There was a little party going on. I thought the dining area was nice. It was very clean as well.

I was impressed with The Jefferson. The facility was very nice. They did have a setup for eating and the way they get people together at mealtime, I think this was very beneficial for the people that live there. The food was good; I've eaten there myself.

I was impressed with the rooms of Jefferson and the closet space. They are situated in downtown Arlington and a block from the Metro. Their food was tasty, we had lunch there and they had an attractive buffet. The server was attentive. The apartments are well insulated and soundproof but once you are outside, you are assaulted with all kinds of street noise and we decided we wanted a quieter location. Also, they did not have activities that we were looking for.

My mother lives in the memory care unit at this facility. Overall, my family's experience has been very positive. My mother is well cared for and seems very comfortable in her environment. Above all, the caregivers have expressed genuine concern for my mother and our entire family. We began hospice care several months ago and the staff at the memory care unit have worked seemlessly with the hospice providers to assure the best possible care as my mother's health declines.

Another property run by Sunrise. This is a highrise property in Ballston VA. It is located very close to the metro so if urban high rise living is what you are looking for this is a good match. The apartments and furnishings are attractive and the staff is very attentive. The only big downside in my view is the location in that it is right in the center of a very busy part of town. There are lots of activities including trips into downtown DC for events at kennedy center and elsewhere.
