Assisted Living Tidbits:

The City of Alexandria offers a multitude of activities and services for seniors living in the Alexandria area. A great place to find services and programs is the City of Alexandria's Recreation Parks & Cultural Activities website, which offers senior classes, including Aquatic Exercise, Art Classes, and Computer Labs, among others! In addition, this page also lists other senior services, including a handful of senior centers. In addition, the Office of Aging and Adult Services of Alexandria provides numerous services for citizens over the age of 60, including health insurance counseling, volunteer opportunities, home visits and case management. Please call 703-838-0900 for information.

Interesting feedback from a site visitor (we like to include interesting messages we receive to our site, to highlight some of the issues and confusion surrounding assisted living):

"My name is Lisa C. I am 44 and receive SSD. I have been 100% disabled since 2009. Currently I own a home in Alexandria. I was diagnosed in 2/2002 w/ M.S. I am on COBRA insurance for my Kaiser and no medicare as of yet. I have realized that I honestly I am unable to be the person I was. I think that if I can buy a home in an assisted living community, I can enjoy the rest of my life. I would love to be a responsible home owner w/ an acre or two, but I admit I cannot. Thank you for any guidance."

This message underscores two important issues. 1) Assisted Living is not only for seniors - younger people may have conditions where assisted living might be necessary and 2) that conditions other than memory disorders may benefit from assisted living care.

Great questions and comments that we have received about Alexandria assisted living and senior care:

Q: My name is Amanda and my grandfather, Peter, has Alzheimer's. He is a veteran and I was wondering if you take Veteran's benefits. I was also wondering if you would accept medicaid after his money ran out? I would also like to know how much money this will cost and when would be a good time for me to visit.

These are great questions to ask up front. Try to get the answers to these questions in writing, so there is no confusion down the road. It is easier to ask the tough questions up-front rather than having to move mom or dad again after they have settled into a facility.

Wandering is a common issue with many assisted living and Alzheimer's facilities

***Learn Something New Today! You're probably like we are - a visual person, who likes to see what an assisted living facility looks like. Unfortunately, not every facility has a website, or online presence. Not to worry though - almost every address in the US has a 'street view' photothat can be seen using google maps - so, for each facility below that has a 'map' link, you will be taken to an interactive map, a photo of the facility, and you'll also be able to take a 'virtual drive' down the street that the facility is located on! A great way to get a visual idea of what a facility looks like!

Tips and Tutorials

[Video] Assisted Living Directory Original Interview:
Cancer and Assisted Living: We interviewed a daughter coping with the diagnosis of her mother's cancer. She talks about the future implications of care, housing and assisted living for her mother. This video helps to dispel the myth that assisted living facilities can be beneficial to only seniors or people struggling with memory disorders. Many assisted living homes are equipped to care for people who are dealing with one of a wide range of conditions, including, but not limited to cancer.
