If you are looking for Supportive living care for a loved one with Dementia/Altimerzin Fredericksburg...look no further- Poet’s Walk, is it!!!! Taking your loved one from their own home and placing them in to any alternative living situation is one of the hardest things in life! Thanks to Poet’s Walk and their incredibly understanding, caring, knowledgeable, and supportive staff, for us this process has successfully ended in tears of joy. From the initial visit, in their private comforting conference room, where they had been frank but caring. They helped us understand the process and answered every question with kindness and respect. To literally holding our hands when overwhelmed, scared, and exhausted and encouraging us often. Every visit from the first, thru several days moving things in for mom, we were repeated greeted by upbeat, engaging staff that always had a simile. Smiles and Hellos not just for us, but each resident the staff encountered. The home is full of LIFE! Over several days we witnessed residents engaged in an array of activities, therapies, conversation, and staff truly encouraging them out of their rooms and into interacting. One of our great fears was that this disease has characteristics in which you worry your loved one will be “kicked - out” or worse avoided. Not here! They understand that these characteristics are part of the disease. Witnessing this lively and consistent interaction, further assures you that they are in the right place. The facility is beautifully decorated and has a very upscale hotel, co-op look. We especially like the Trending Technology feature. I also like that my father is able to participate, share , learn, and connect with other spouses/loved one in groups and meetings. Although Mom will never be in her house again, thanks to all at Poet’s Walk, Fredericksburg…. she is now home

Poet's Walk has been a God send to my father...and to our family! The welcoming they gave my father, when he arrived for the very first time was amazing. He was greeted with a beautiful potted plant. What I loved about Poets Walk is that they listen to the needs and interests of their residents. My father has always had a green thumb and gardening has always been a passion of his. By gifting him a plant was a pleasant surprise and a treat for him. He also loves Frank Sinatra, and they play music from "Ole Blue Eyes" often, which seems to make my father happy. The nursing care has been great and activities, I just can't say enough. The icing on the cake has been the inclusion of a Social Worker at Poet's Walk...[name removed]. Wow!! Having a social worker available at all times is just simply incredible!! The new friends my Dad has started to make has been wonderful. Seeing my once social as a butterfly father open up again and socialize with other residents, has been a joy to watch. Thank you Poets Walk team, for your continued hard work. I know my family and father, appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.A VERY happy daughter/ family

Our dad seems so much happier since he moved to Poet's Walk. When we call, he is upbeat and positive. He tells us how lucky he is that his senior years are so good. We are very grateful to you for making it possible for him to be there and we are grateful for the whole staff making it such a good place.

I am very glad that I decided to visit Poet's Walk during the "grand opening" event. I could tell from the videos and online photos that it was nice. But what I learned is how dedicated the Poet's Walk staff are to the safety and care of each resident... My mom wants to be treated with dignity, and I believe that Poet's Walk does that.

"The care and the staff are so wonderful! My husband has actually improved since living at Poet's Walk! He is using the toilet, clean, shaved, more alert, talking and walking with assistance, and eating! Before going to Poet's Walk, he was wet, dirty hair, unshaved, dirty bed, hanging his head, drooling, (and more). I also like that I was invited to the P.O.C. meeting and also love (the) surveys, which they did not have at his previous place.

"The Poet's Walk Warrenton staff are very helpful and committed to providing quality care and service. The facility is very clean and maintained."

My husband is a resident of Poet’s Walk Warrenton. Cindy Murphy provided me with guidance and support each step along the way in the emotional process of placing a loved one into assisted living. My husband has made a good adjustment. He has made friends with other residents and says he likes Poet’s Walk. He has a best friend. They eat meals together and participate in daily activities. He says his care providers are very kind to him. Everyone in the Management Team seems to know his name and stop to chat with him. He feels special and important. I enjoy visiting him at Poet’s Walk and interacting with family members of other residents.

A Poets Walk is a dream come true in memory care facilities. We just moved our mom there from a lovely assisted living facility. We all realized mom was needing more care but after 7 years at the other place it was not something we were looking forward to but the staff are amazing and after 48 hours of nervous hovering my siblings and I kissed mom good night and left her knowing that she really is in good hands! The facility is immaculately clean, invitingly arranged with many different, inviting areas to sit and interact along "Main Street" as well as a cleverly designed circuit with a secure inner court yard that allows for safe walks. Residents rooms are spacious and well laid out. And, the staff there are so good it is hard to believe that they are real! They are patient, kind, loving and remarkably talented at knowing how to manage whatever comes along. The manager, Mark, has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help get mom (and our family) settled and comfortable with the move, I feel that I should single out and name the other staff but each one of them has been remarkable- so instead, let me just say- hugs to each and every one of you- and from the bottom of our hearts- thank you- A Poets Walk and each of you are truly a God-send. If you are looking for a place for your loved one - I recommend it without hesitation!
