The Fairfax is Northern Virginia’s premier senior living community for retired military officers and their spouses (US Uniformed Services, CIA, FBI, Foreign Service, and other Federal Agencies, in addition to parents of active and retired military personnel). Established in 1989 by the nonprofit Army Retirement Residence Foundation-Potomac (ARRF-P), our residents take pride in our rich history steeped in military traditions, and we are also honored to offer an opportunity for non-military residents to call The Fairfax home.
Because most of our residents have the shared connection of serving in our military or government, our activities calendar is tailored to their common interests. We emphasize our annual events as an opportunity to gather and celebrate the incredible men and women who live among us and have served our country by arranging celebrations on Independence Day, Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, service birthdays, and other meaningful occasions.
In addition to frequent trips in the local Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area, we host overnight trips to Cape May, resorts in Pennsylvania, and many other historical locations up and down the East Coast. And, to ensure the community is consistently meeting residents' needs, we are proud to boast an active Residents' Council with elected representatives; each building has two Council representatives, and these individuals pay close attention to their neighbors' feedback and opinions, to constantly refine the resident experience at The Fairfax.
Each day, we host a variety of activities, including yoga classes, bridge games, lectures, current events discussions, musical performances, and writing and poetry groups. We take pride in our culinary excellence, and frequently feature theme nights, as well as pop-up farm-to-table dinners in the courtyard. With both formal and casual dining, as well as private dining options, there is something for everyone at The Fairfax.
Residents and families will tell you that the beauty of our community grounds is unparalleled. And, because so many of our residents are looking for an active, healthy lifestyle, we provide ample opportunities to enjoy the features of our stunning property, including:
We would love to talk with you and your family about what life is like at The Fairfax. We invite you to give us a call, schedule a tour, and talk with us about enjoying the next chapter of life among new friends and beautiful surroundings.
