At Sunrise Senior Living, we believe where you live is more than just an address – it’s a place for comfort, freedom, and happiness. And you’ll enjoy just that at The Fairfax, one of Northern Virginia’s finest retirement homes and senior Independent Living communities. Established in 1989 by the non-profit Army Retirement Residence Foundation-Potomac (ARRF-P), The Fairfax is a unique military retirement community that serves retired officers and their spouses from the U.S. Uniformed Services, CIA, FBI, Foreign Service and other Federal Agencies as well as the parents of active and retired military personnel and civilians. The Fairfax is also the first senior community proudly named a Certified Wildlife Sanctuary by the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia!
