Below please find answers to some common questions.
What other types of assistance may residents receive?
In addition to our full range of services, including fine dining, 24/7 recreation and 24/7 on-site nursing, Lansdowne Heights nurses assist with individual residents' needs such as oxygen management, nebulizer treatments, and diabetic care. Nurses assist with blood glucose monitoring and insulin injections. Diabetic diet selections are available, and daily exercise classes and programs are offered. Aides provide personal care such as bathing and dressing.
Is Lansdowne Heights licensed by Virginia State?
Yes, our residence is licensed and inspected by the Virginia Department of Health. Department of Health regulated Assisted Living residences provide assistance with all activities of daily living, including: three meals per day; personal care services such as bathing, dressing, and grooming; medication management; recreational programming; transportation to appointments; 24-hour supervision for any emergencies or care needs. Although not required by the Department of Health, Lansdowne Heights has Licensed Professional Nurses on-site 24/7.
Can my loved one continue to see their own doctor?
Yes, residents have the choice of keeping their personal physician or being referred to the in- house or local physician.
How will my loved one get to appointments outside the residence?
We offer scheduled transportation service for weekday doctor’s appointments free of charge within a 10 mile radius.
Can we bring our own furniture?
All residents should bring their own furniture.
What are the visiting hours?
Current visiting hours are 9am to 7pm daily. Please check directly with the community on any current visitation protocols by calling 703-936-7300.
Can I take my loved one out of the building?
Yes. Trips off-site with family members are encouraged. We simply ask that you check with your Nurses Station and take all appropriate medication with you for the length of time your loved one will be gone. Residents and guests are required to sign in and out at the reception desk.
Should I expect a large Entrance Fee?
Our communities do not require a large “buy in” option. The entrance fee is a one-time fee due at admission, compared to larger CCRC’s, this entrance fee is minimal. Our assistance provides a seamless move in process where the SMDR and/or Case Manager work alongside the responsible parties to obtain the required documentation needed for an admission.
Please give us a call and we will help you figure them out.
I have been incredibly impressed with the care my husband is receiving at Lansdowne Heights. The administrators and the staff have been extremely supportive and compassionate during our transition to this stage of our journey. Absolutely everyone – the administrators, the nursing staff, the aides, the activities director, the maintenance director – have all taken a personal interest in my husband and have found ways to connect with him and keep him engaged. The countless activities are creative and varied and geared to just the right level. A special shout out to the head nurse, who is remarkably communicative and has been there for my husband and me every step of the way.
