The Providence fairfax

A different kind of MEMORY CARE

The Providence takes a warm and nurturing holistic approach with our groundbreaking Memory Care program. A priority for us is to inspire confidence in residents and their families, secure in the knowledge their loved one is in a vibrant, safe community, receiving expert, custom care. Expertly trained caregivers and nurses are available 24/7, and always provide care with empathy.

Our Memory Care associates, called “Nayas,” which means “guide” or “person of wisdom” in ancient Sanskrit, provide custom care with an innate understanding of what will help Memory Care residents thrive, helping to foster a sense of well-being among residents.

Memory Care residents enjoy a private courtyard, along with inviting dining and amenities areas. The Gourmet Bites dining option allows residents to enjoy the pleasures of fine dining. The Pantry Program gives Memory Care residents a personal pantry that is stocked with favorite foods and snacks–along with photographs and mementos–they can access any time
