Testimonials

There’s no better way to get a feel for a community than to read personal stories. The testimonials below will give you an intimate glimpse into the place so many call home.  

Joe D.

I could not be more pleased with the Hermitage. The atmosphere and staff members are outstanding. Before selecting the Hermitage, we visited and took every opportunity to engage staff that happened by. I was impressed by two staff members who said the Hermitage was the best job they ever had. Now that my mother is a resident, it is evident this is true. The environment is pleasant, respectful, and friendly. All staff take care to make residents and visitors feel welcome. From health care, to food service, to building maintenance, I have observed friendly, competent, and caring staff. The dining room wait staff and the entire food service operation is outstanding. Diners are promptly greeted, orders quickly taken, and water glasses are kept filled. The service at the Hermitage dining room is clearly on a par with highly regarded restaurants. The health care staff are attentive and responsive to the individual needs of the residents. The facility itself is very clean and well maintained by a very responsive maintenance staff. It is clear the Hermitage staff take pride in their jobs and the facility. In my opinion, the Hermitage is unique in achieving a caring, welcoming, and respectful environment that has become the organic definition of the organization.

When my mother moved from the West Coast to assisted living at the Hermitage, staff members guided me through the process and were very helpful in arranging everything she needed and recommending a primary care physician.

I originally placed my cousin at the Hermitage along with her mother. Debra Norberg and the Hermitage staff were so accommodating allowing my cousin to be in independent living, while my aunt was in the health care center. At the same time, Debra worked with me to keep the cost reasonable. My cousin has now resided there for 2.5 years and absolutely loves it! I recommend the Hermitage to anyone looking for an affordable care living facility in Northern Virginia.

Dianne & Rob B.

We are so grateful for the wonderful staff, the cleanliness of the facility, the daily social activities, including exercise classes, and especially the loving care provided to my mom. We also are grateful that the administrative staff makes the business side of her comings and goings as smooth and easy as possible.

My Mom’s decision to move to The Hermitage at age 97—after living independently in her own home for 66 years—was not an easy one. But she’s now been in her lovely, sunny apartment for 3 years, where she’s safe and comfortable and well cared for. The staff at The Hermitage made the transition easier, and they continue to provide a loving, caring environment for the residents.

The staff is very helpful and friendly. The free transportation offered is very well done, taking residents to the doctor, shopping or to pursue pleasurable activities. The activities offered on campus are varied, and available for residents who want to participate, including games of all types. At the Hermitage, I enjoy participating in what is offered and continue to live my life as I want to.

I continue to live my life as I want to. I take advantage of the convenient bus stop near the Hermitage to make a weekly visit to the Library of Congress where I continue research I had begun some 40 years ago.

Resident

The friends I have met here at Hermitage have truly been a blessing and the staff is very helpful and kind. I also love the beautiful grounds and often enjoy taking peaceful walks after dinner to watch the sunset.

Resident

Living at the Hermitage makes it easy to stay active. I volunteer on the library committee, attend social events, take tai chi and exercise classes, and I’ve taken more trips to the mall and to museums than ever before.

Suzanne & Fred L.

Our family is very pleased with the care and service delivered by the competent staff at Hermitage. During a recent blizzard, it was comforting to know that our family member was safe and sound as many staff members worked double shifts or stayed overnight to ensure the safety of the residents. Any time we visit we are greeted by the cheerful, friendly staff.

We visited Hermitage at Northern VA. It was great and seemed like the perfect place for a senior. The room was nice and clean. There was a nice salon and good food in the dining area.

They also had the typical social activities different outings. They had movie nights too. There were also entertainment and live music. They also take the residents out to the barber shop. It was a fair community.

Resident

We chose Hermitage for a combination of location and price, and they provided the care level that we needed. The food is OK, and the staff is very knowledgeable.

Visitor

I liked The Hermitage very much. They had a studio apartment, which was nice, and I liked that it had a lot of activities that appealed to me in a fairly intellectual route. Education was possible via the community college, and there were lectures and events involving the community that were more than the Bingo around. They had in-house care of different levels with physical therapy and doctors available in the community. You can also have free transportation to appointments within ten miles. It had a nice location too -- right in the middle of where I used to live. They have different levels of care, including respite care, which was nice.

Visitor
