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!

Whether you enjoy the order of a well-organized day, complete with delicious meals and a vibrant social calendar, or living at your own tempo, you’ll always feel at home at The Fairfax. Located near Fort Belvoir, The Fairfax is a short drive from downtown Washington, D.C. and the Potomac River. This senior living community is situated on a peaceful oasis at Belvoir Woods and is close to several of Virginia’s renowned attractions, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon Plantation, creating a residential experience unparalleled by other retirement homes.
