Customer Reviews

This is a 5 star community. The place is well maintained and offers lot of flexibility to residents. Very friendly staff and residents. Floor plans available to suit space and budget needs.

This community requires a buy in which may not be doable if budget is limited. But, it ensures long term needs are being met if health declines.

The facility was clean. It looks like they were about to serve lunch. So we did get to meet with some of the residents. Looked like they had a different activities. The staff was very vague and rude. Talking about financing before we even started the tour (in the hallway) not even in a room. Wanting to talk logistics pretty much as we entered.

Over the top!

We toured Fairfax and we were astounded at how expensive it was, its like 10000 a month plus we would have to set up a trust to ensure my mother would be able to pay. There was a community fee before you even get in that was not refundable and it was in the thousands. For someone who could afford it, it would be like living in a resort. I'm glad it's there and available for others, but it was not something we could afford. The facility was gorgeous.

Very happy with our choice...

So far everything is going well with my father's move to this community. We like the meals I've eaten there several times and they are very good. They also have a church there, we go every Sunday. The place is very clean well maintained. They have activities available at all times and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We are very happy with our choice.


The pricing here i would have to say is fantastic. I feel like my family and I get a great financial stress reilef . Everything is perfect here.

Very nice place!

Our experience with The Fairfax has been a very good one, I've been pleasantly surprised! Everyone here is very friendly! The staff is pleasant and professional, and the other residents are friendly, active, and alert. The facility itself is beautifully done and well maintained, and they've got a lot to offer the people who live here.

The Fairfax at Belvoir Woods - nice but true Souther efficiency!

It is a very attractive place but the staff is very inefficient and disorganized! You get s different answer to the same question for each person you ask -- accounting says one thing, the resident services people say something different, and the engineering folks (who do things like fix toilets, HVAC, etc) have another answer! The monthly statements are nearly unintelligible and don't even ask about how to hook up and get cable TV. So for a senior citizen, it's quite frustrating to have to call people all the time to straighten things out. It's like you never left your single family home that you owned, where you had to hire help, manage all the maintenance, research how to fix things, etc. it's like you never left!! You thought you were going to stress free living but -----no!!! The staff at The Fairfax is much more interested in leaving at 4 pm on the dot and you never, ever, ev er, ever (!) get the staff on the phone live in person when you call for help or with a question. You ALWAYS have to leave a phone message and wait (and wait and wait) for them to call you back. On the positive side, the residents are friendly, they run some very nice outings for the residents, and the food is mostly tasty. But don't expect your move-in and set up to go smoothly. I could not even close on my apartment on the scheduled date because they emailed my family and I a legal document the night before that required me to sign which would hold my children and grandchildren (!) responsible for all financial obligations for my health care ----should i ever run out of money to pay them in the future. Waiting 2 months to spring this required legal document on me within 24 hours of my move was, needless to say, quite stressful and really left a bad taste in my mouth. I had to reschedule my moving company and everything was in a disarray or we could let an attorney look it over. If you are considering the Fairfax, ask right away for all legal and financial documents or they will try to spring it on you at the last minute. Also, you will enjoy life here if you are social and don't mind the inefficient staff. Bring your patience.

This facility was a little larger than our needs. Also requires an entry deposit that at our age is not as advantageous

Very nice place!

Overall I thought they did a wonderful job here! The entire community just had a warm and welcoming feel, and the staff were very accommodating. What I liked most about this place is that it just felt like a big family. The staff and residents all knew each other's names, and all of their interactions were heartfelt and genuine. You could tell the staff really wanted the residents to live their lives, have fun, and feel at home.

Great place, perfect and a possible for when I need it. No bed available now for mental care, but on wait list. Father-in-law in hospital so we don't know what will be next or if anything will be needed. I recommend you offer this as a high quality place as often as possible.

Everyone was super helpful during the process of getting my Mom into the Fairfax. There were last minute changes in arrival dates and everyone worked with us to get it right. It's now been over a month and Mom is loving the place. I wish we had done this 5 or 6 years ago!

Extremely expensive even for level 1

This one was really expensive and really "high class"- basically we couldn't afford it. Another reason we didn't chose this one was they wouldn't let her use her military prescirption, she would have to pay to use theirs. Mom's at the lowest level of care, she jsut needs somebody to get her her medications and remind her to eat but sh'es pretty self sufficient other than that. The base was around 6,000 so with that and then the additional cost of prescriptions it was too expensive.
