Our Community
Staff Interviews
Resident Interviews

"I appreciate that it is an excellent facility with the involvement of the individuals and the care that is being taken. The primary fact of the decision was because of the thoroughness and the dedicated work strictly geared to people with the dementia disease. I would say that I would recognize the contact we have had with any of the staff, regardless if it's front staff, the staff that is conducting the daily activities, or the staff which is handling the food service. I have had no problem whatsoever. Everybody is extremely forthcoming, friendly and very helpful. Right now I only can sing the highest praises."


Family Member

"I would have no hesitation to recommend Arbor Terrace Fairfax. I would tell others that they should go look at the facility and talk with the director and look around at mealtime and see it and experience it for yourself. Talk with them because they're all good people to talk to."


Family Member

"Most important is that she is comfortable, happy and engaged in activities. I get an email every night of what they did every day. That's impressive because the other place just parked them in front of the TV when the activity director left. It's just little things like that."


Family Member

"I would tell anyone that my loved one is very happy there, the level of care is good, and we're very happy with it."
