Here to Serve You

Memory Care at Cardinal Village is based on validation and therapy to engage our residents. The more we know about our residents, the better we can meet their individual needs in the now and as they go through the various stages of their disease. We tap into the strengths of our residents’ long term memory, their life histories and individual talents to help them THRIVE every day. Focus is placed on each residents daily fulfillment with intensive staff support who understand the various stages associated with memory impairments. Effective communication, appropriate cuing, and use of verbal and non-verbal strategies for success are important to our program. These details are what set Cardinal Village apart from other memory care communities in Fredericksburg, VA.


The residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff is available 24 hours a day and an emergency call response and security system is in place for residents with dementia. Prior to moving in to our community, we speak with you and your physician to find the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide our staff in assisting you. Nurses and resident assistants are always available to assist with medication administration, incontinence care, and the activities of daily life. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.


While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently at our Fredericksburg, VA, retirement community. We care about not only the physical and emotional well-being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our Cardinal Village memory care and senior living residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.
