Cardinal Village, Fredericksburg VA
At Cardinal Village, older adults can live the life they’ve always dreamed of without compromising. Conveniently located in quiet Fredericksburg, VA, the community offers exceptional Alzheimer's care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and memory loss. Unlike many memory care communities that offer independent and assisted living alongside their Alzheimer's care programs, Cardinal Village focuses entirely on helping people living with memory impairments. From their compassionate, trained staff to their beautifully-appointed senior living apartments, the community gives residents a high quality of life, helping them enjoy their retirement to the fullest.
Like Senior Lifestyle’s continuing care communities that offer independent and assisted living, residents love living at Cardinal Village for their many recreational activities and social opportunities. Living with Alzheimer's or dementia means finding fun hobbies, meeting friends, and staying active are more important than ever. Whether residents play indoor shuffleboard with their friends, learn to paint from trained artists, or simply enjoy a classic movie screening with their friends, there’s something fun for everyone at Cardinal Village. Their social opportunities and recreational activities are never-ending, giving residents unlimited options to enjoy themselves and explore their interests without leaving campus.
However, quality long-term care is what makes Cardinal Village one of the best continuing care retirement communities in Fredericksburg for people living with Alzheimer's disease. As a dedicated memory care community, they provide services that many assisted living facilities and independent living communities do not offer. Their memory care program helps people with Alzheimer's or dementia learn to navigate life with memory loss, making their retirement years safer and more fulfilling.
To make sure each resident gets the quality long-term care they deserve, Cardinal Village creates individualized care routines for each person. Staff members work with residents and their families closely to identify their memory impairments, general care needs, and preferences to determine which services and amenities they need. Using this pre-admission assessment, the community develops an individualized care routine, which they update every few months as necessary to keep up with everyone's changing needs. As people need more help with their daily activities, the community will adjust their care plan accordingly.
Staff is available twenty-four hours a day, providing around-the-clock care for residents when they need it. They do wellness check-ins every day to make sure each resident's needs are met and they help them with their activities of daily living according to their routine.
Each of the community's apartments is spacious, offering everything a person needs without overwhelming them with too much room to manage. Like assisted living residents at other senior living communities, dementia care residents have access to many premium amenities right from their apartment, including:
- Cable and internet
- Private bathrooms
- Individually controlled heating and air conditioning
- Large windows with a lot of natural light
- Closets and storage space
- Emergency call systems
Living with Alzheimer's can make preparing meals challenging, meaning many people with Alzheimer's and dementia can benefit from someone else cooking their meals. At Cardinal Place, residents enjoy delicious, restaurant-style meals at the on-campus Bistro, located just steps away from the senior living community's apartments. Like Senior Lifestyle's assisted living facilities and independent living communities, their restaurant staff prepares timeless selections for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. In between meals, residents can enjoy snacks courtesy of Cardinal Village, eliminating the need to prepare meals in their apartment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What makes a memory care community like Cardinal Village different than an assisted living community?
A memory care community like Cardinal Village offers services designed specifically for people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Some assisted living community's offer a memory care program alongside their personal care services, but Cardinal Village is strictly a memory care community. Typically assisted living personal care services are not tailored for people with memory loss and may not provide the safety and security they need, meaning it's important for people with Alzheimer's disease to find a dementia care program suitable for them.

Cardinal Village only offers memory care services. Residents' daily routines may include personal assistance (they get help with their activities of daily living much like assisted living residents), but the community does not provide those services for people without memory impairments.
Q: Does Cardinal Village offer skilled nursing care for people who need ongoing medical attention?
No. Cardinal Village is a non-medical continuing care community and is not licensed to provide skilled nursing care.
