Independent Living Reviews for The Virginian

I visited this facility

The location of The Virginian is not far from where we lived before, so everything around it is pretty familiar. The people seemed to be very happy. We liked it. We ate several good meals there. We wanted a two-bedroom, but there aren't any available, so we're moving into a one-bedroom initially. The rooms are notlarge, which kind of disappointed us. Otherwise, all the facilities were very good. The staff as well as the residents seemed very good. They have a library, a movie theater, and a very good dining room. They seemed to have a lot of activities, and we've been to one or two of them to see what they were like. Everything seemed to be excellent.

. The majority of the residents are in wheelchairs or using walkers. They are unable to walk without assistance and there is only one small elevator. If there was a fire! ????I don't know how they meet the fire /health codes. The smell is rather unpleasant as well as the food. Managers change constantly and no one is one site at night.

I liked the building of The Virginian but not when I walked inside some of the rooms because they smelled really bad. I saw a lot of people in wheelchairs, and it broke my heart. The representative was a 5 because she was thorough, very knowledgeable, and took the time to help me. She was really awesome and very attentive. I want to live in a place where the person managing it is just like her.

The Virginian was small. The food seemed to be good. I have eaten there twice, and both times the meals were decent. The 1 bedroom apartment that I saw was smaller than I wanted, and they also showed me a 2 bedroom unit, but I didn’t like the layout. The staff seemed nice, and the pricing is reasonable -- less expensive than where I am living right now.

The Virginian is good so far. It’s pretty positive, clean, and neat. The staff seemed to be very friendly and helpful. The food was good. They had church services and bingo.

The Virginian seemed a little more affordable to us. We had a good visiting experience at this place and would be the place we would choose. The staff was friendly and absolutely accommodating. They invited us back for a free meal and all that, just for us to get more acquainted with the place, but we're just not ready for that yet. They had an exercise room, a very nice theater, and the whole thing was very attractive. The dining area looked pretty good to me, and it smelled good.

The Virginian was very bright and had a lot of light, which I liked. They did have two full-time managers as far as I can remember. The recreational staff was there, and I talked with them. The rooms were a bit smaller than the other place I saw, but it was still a nice size with very nice windows. The recreational activities were kind of boring because it was sort of the same stuff every day, and it wasn’t a lot of variety.

I was very impressed with The Virginian. I actually wanted to make it mom’s place until she fell and stayed in the hospital. I realized that she could be there for a year or so and then we have to move because of her care needs. But it was very nice. The head staff there could help with assistance as far as medication. The chef was excellent, and I really liked their recipes. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was very good, and the monthly rent was well below.

My mother-in-law is at The Virginian. It was actually the closest one that we could find within our price range. The staff is great. The rooms are also great. My mother-in-law is in a one-bedroom, which is pretty spacious and very nice. They have quite a few activities that my mother-in-law does all day long. She does bingo, yoga, and some exercise classes. She has never exercised before in her life, so that is pretty cool. They also have movie nights and games that they play. Regarding the food though, she doesn't like it. She says it is always cold or bland.

My in-laws are now in The Virginian. We chose this facility because they meet their needs over and beyond. Also the price is great. The facility is clean. My in-laws are doing very well. They have adjusted very well there. Also they moved them in with no extra charge. Their room is gorgeous. There's a cathedral ceiling. It's beautiful. The staff is very nice. They're caring people. They would call their residents by their name. They have lots of activities. They have karaoke. They have aerobics that they do in their chairs. They have different people come like they might be people that service hearing aids and also they have musical groups that come in as well. They have church services for different denominations on different times. They have a little bus that takes them to different places. They even take them to their doctors' appointments. Regarding food, sometimes it is good, but sometimes it is plain. Overall, what I like best about this facility is not being worried about my in-laws and the security of having staff there 24/7.

Very intimate environment with about 108 units. Friendly and professional staff, the managers are servers at the meals which are served on the 3rd floor of a 4 floor facility. Very veteran friendly, utilities and cable included in this modestly priced facility located adjacent to an assisted living facility making it convenient for a resident whose level of care may change from indepdendent to a higher level requiring assistance.

She chose Virginian because the facility was something that suites her needs. It provided three meals a day. It's a ground floor living facility and that is good to her because she couldn't get upstairs very easily as mobility is a problem for her. She got a two bedroom apartment although it was a downsize place for her, but still reasonable. It's a really nice place and it got some transportation. It is also close to a rehab facility. I would recommend this facility to others if they were looking for an independent living facility.

I wasn't particularly impressed with The Virginian, although that has a lot to do with my preconceived thoughts about these kind of places. The facilities was good. The setting was nice. The staff was very pleasant. They have basically the activities that I'm interested in, although I wish they have a swimming pool. I had a meal there and it was the most awful meal I ever had in my life. Otherwise the place and the accommodations were fine. The only issue I had with it was when I was dealing with their sales person. There was this sales pitch that made me think that what they really want is for me to be there so they can have some more money. I couldn't get past that feeling. Then the bad food reinforced that idea - they want money but they don't want to feed people edible food! Good food is very important to me, so that's certainly enough to turn me away from a place if I'm going to count on them for my meals.

Nicely appearing facility, well kept. My parents have made friends here because of the scheduled meal time, when everyone goes and eats at the same time. The meals are less than what I would hope for, but my parents are reasonably satisfied. The staff is very friendly. My parents came from anther state, so this kind of setting where meals are a part of the package are worth the additional money because it has created social connections for them.
