Apartment-Style Living

Aarondale's apartment-style living frees residents from the responsibilities and expense of living and maintaining a home. Inviting floor plans offer a full range of living space and cost options for individual residents or couples. And, best of all, rental agreements are month-to-month, with no buy-in fees, and no long-term lease commitments. 

Our spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments are tastefully decorated and well maintained. All apartments feature wall-to-wall low-pile carpeting, large closets, oversized windows with custom window treatments, and individual climate control. In addition, residences have kitchenettes with ample cabinet space, refrigerator, and sink. All apartments are barrier free throughout, wheelchair accessible, and are equipped with an emergency call system linked to the Aarondale 24-hour Nursing team. 


Assisted Living & Memory Care

Members of the Aarondale team respect the dignity and individuality of each resident, and are committed to their physical, social, and emotional well being. Transition assistance for incoming residents is offered, as well as four levels of specialized, comprehensive, compassionate care. Age-In-Place and Hospice options are also available.

Individuals and/or couples with differing care needs are welcome here. All care plans are regularly reviewed and re-evaluated by the nursing staff, and are highlighted by individualized assistance and freedom to make daily choices. Attending physicians are available on the premises, as well as Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy and Rehabilitation services. Plus, for added safety and peace of mind, our 24-hour Nursing team conducts safety checks for all residents every two hours throughout the day and night. 

Assisted Living

Aarondale determines each resident's Care Level based on their own Physician's History and Physical report, our free Nursing assessment and the state of Virginia Uniform Assessment Instrument (UAI). You can call or visit our Community for more details and to get an estimate of which level of care you or your loved one may need. 

Based on an assessment of your needs, we help you choose a level of care designed just for you:

  • Level A - Introductory Level of Assistance

  • Level I - Minimum Assistance

  • Level II - Moderate Assistance

  • Level III - Extended Assistance

  • Level IV - Highest Level of Assistance

My mother enjoyed her life at Aarondale. from the first day, she said “I have lots of friends here.”

From the very first day that my mother arrived at Aarondale until her last moment, each and every one of you was beyond wonderful. Your love and caring made all the difference in how mother was able to face each day.

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated Aarondale’s care for my mom. Each transition was so well handled that my Mom, who normally worried about everything and did not like change, appeared to fit in comfortably and feel safe with each move. Your entire staff has done a great job, too, and made years that could have been very trying for my Mom, very comfortable for her. They brought out her piano playing talent and interacted with her so nicely that she never seemed to feel alone or neglected.

I remember as we walked through the front doors, I must have expressed a great deal of relief at how attractive and well-maintained Aarondale was. The care manager who accompanied me said “Ignore all this. The most important thing to consider is staff turnover.” He pointed out that RUI had among the lowest staff turnover rates in the field. Now, many years later, I have come to see how correct he was, and how vitally important the people who work at Aarondale are. I’m sure you can understand how much more confident one feels about entrusting the care of your loved one to staff whose familiar faces you see every visit.

The holiday gala was the best one we’ve attended. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Every one of the staff, whether nursing aides, administrators, or servers had sincere smiles on their faces, and none of them showed (what I know was) the exhaustion they were feeling after all of the prep work to put on such a nice event. It’s one thing to present such a positive and comfortable atmosphere within the physical plant, but quite another feat to hire, motivate, and keep your caring staff. Excellent job.
