How to Find the Best Senior Living Community in Manassas, VA

Manassas’ blend of historic charm and modern flair makes it one of Virginia’s top communities for seniors to retire to. But before you explore the region’s Civil War history, or its downtown cultural scene, you’ll first need to find a senior living option that meets all of your needs.

Finding Senior Living in Manassas for Today and Beyond

One of the greatest challenges in planning for senior care is that there’s no way to know what the future holds. Still, the best senior living community in Manassas has to have the ability to meet current and future care needs. The simplest answer is personalized care and lots of options.

In addition to assisted living, Arbor Terrace Sudley Manor, for example, offers multiple specialized care options for residents at different stages of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia:

  • Bridges Living: For residents experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer’s, dementia, or age-related memory loss, Bridges provides the same support as assisted living with additional cognitive support and programming in small group settings.  
  • Memory Care: Residents with more advanced dementia receive 24-hour hour care and support from staff members with specialized dementia care training; help with daily activities, nutritional support, and programs that encourage socialization.

Nobody knows what the future holds, and having a plan in place for memory care can prevent a disruptive move if the need arises down the road.
