Long Term Health & Nursing Care in Alexandria VA at the Benjamin M. Smith Health Care Center

At Hermitage Northern Virginia, we believe the changing needs that may occur as we age should never be accompanied by a declining standard of living. If needed, residents have priority access to Hermitage’s long term health care and nursing care services in Alexandria VA at our Benjamin M. Smith Health Care Center, located within our community and easily accessible via a garden-level walkway.

Having priority access gives residents and their families peace of mind, knowing any future needs they may have will be met in a lovely, familiar environment. Residents also appreciate knowing they’ll pay only for the care and services they use. And of course, at Hermitage, there is no entrance fee to deplete your savings.

Consistent high staffing levels at Hermitage enable our dedicated nursing professionals to provide attentive care, personalized to a resident’s individual preferences. With a compassionate, respectful, person-first approach, team members are committed to helping people live comfortably with dignity and autonomy. Those are some of the keys to enjoying the highest possible quality of life.

Naturally, visits from friends and family are welcomed at any time. And, as part of our mission, we also offer short-term respite service in all levels of care, enabling family caregivers to tend to their own health needs or simply to take a much-needed rest
