Silverado Alexandria, a three-story memory care community designed to serve 66 residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-impairing conditions, is opening in June 2018 in Alexandria, Virginia. The community, located at 2807 King Street, is providing two rooms (serving one individual each) and associated services (including meals, housekeeping, and help with activities of daily living) at a rate that is 40% below the market rate. The units provide a new, more affordable resource for persons needing memory care that does not currently exist within the City. The City of Alexandria is now accepting applications for these units.
