An Industry Leader in Northern Virginia

Greenspring is one of Northern Virginia’s most vibrant continuing care retirement communities.

Our scenic 58-acre campus is comfortably situated in Springfield, close to the culture and convenience of Fairfax County and Washington, DC.

Our Fairfax County retirement community also features a comprehensive continuing care neighborhood that includes assisted living, memory care, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term care.


Greenspring’s History

To meet the increasing demand for dynamic senior living in Northern Virginia, we opened the Greenspring retirement community in 1998. Fairfax County seniors were inspired by the opportunity to enjoy the same independent lifestyle they were accustomed to, but without the hassles and worries of home ownership.

Our Springfield campus is still growing today. We currently boast independent living apartment homes, three clubhouses, and a full continuum of care—all supported by a staff of more than 1,200.

You don’t move in and stay in. You can still work and have activities that you do outside. It’s really independent living.

It’s a very big plus to have a medical center on campus.

I’ve noticed that the number of checks I write and the bills that I send out have dwindled to practically nothing.

If something happens to me and I no longer can live independently...there’s a place right across the campus where I can go for whatever needs that I have.

I have chosen to use the workout facilities here, as well as the pool and the spa. I’m able to maintain my needs with what’s available here--and it doesn’t cost anything.
