A vibrant and passionate community

You won’t come across another Continuing Care Retirement Community quite like The Fairfax. Coming from similar backgrounds, our residents enjoy a close camaraderie and love of giving back, being active, and soaking up history. And our prime location makes it easy to take advantage of all that Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia have to offer. When you’re not exploring the local area, you have plenty to do on our expansive campus—from Zumba and swimming to fishing and gardening, just to name a few. Plus, you have the chance to take advantage of our LifeCare program that helps you plan for the future.

We are proud that our community has been recognized as Best Independent Living, Best Assisted Living, Best Memory Care, and Best Continuing Care Retirement Community as part of U.S. News & World Report's Best Senior Living ratings for 2023–2024.

You’ll love our stunning campus

As soon as you arrive at our community, you’ll immediately see what’s so special about our grounds. Situated on 60 beautifully maintained acres, our community offers an outdoor lifestyle that will help you stay active and connect with nature. In fact, you can commune with monarch butterflies, birds, turtles, and more in our Audubon at Home Wildlife Sanctuary. If you love fishing, you’re in luck—there’s a fully-stocked, seven-acre lake open year-round. You can also get moving with our tennis courts, putting green, and walking trails.
