My grandmother just passed after 12 years at Heartfields. She was treated so kindly, lovingly and professionally by the staff, both in the main area, and later when her dementia required a smaller area, in the Bridge. When she got to the point where leaving on outings wasn't doable, staff invited us there and threw birthday parties for her 3 different time during her stay. Mary Morehead, director of the Bridge, developed a very close relationship with Mary, calling her "my granny." She would visit Mary in the hospital when she became to ill to be at Heartfields, and would comb her hair for her, which she loved. Several who worked with her there became similarly attached. After my grandmother passed, as I waited for her to be picked up, I heard "family sounds" in the main area. The staff related to each resident kindly, going through their routines, asking them questions, reading a novel to one, helping them to go where they wanted to be in the ward. It was the best decision we ever made to have my grandmother live there, where she was loved and treated with respect to her last hour.

Heartfields of Fredericksburg is a FIVE STAR community. Since the time my mother arrived she has been treated with the utmost respect by highly skilled and dedicated personnel. The entire staff, from the director to the maintenance man, is professional and extremely devoted to quality. Each staff member displays a sincere desire to help each resident feel comfortable and part of a family environment. From the instant you enter the facility and meet the friendly reception to, discussing conditions with the nursing staff, the primary focus is on the wellbeing of the resident. The daily activities are varied to all interests and planned to allow residents an opportunity to mind, be entertained and use their cognitive skills. The dining facility is formal and the menu is well balanced and nutritional. Without hesitation, I would recommend this facility to everyone. The entire staff works diligently to provide a congenial home atmosphere for the residents… they do a wonderful job! This is a winning staff and caring group of people.
