Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living Honored Among Top Senior Communities in the Nation – Named Caring Star of 2017 for Service Excellence in Assisted Living and Memory Care on Caring.com


November 29, 2016

For the third time, Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living has been selected as a “Caring Star” of 2017 for service excellence in assisted living and memory care. In ratings and reviews from family caregivers and cognitively healthy older adults, Spring Hills Mt. Vernon, a Spring Hills Senior Communities community, earned a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) within the last year, while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other qualifying criteria for this national honor.

Spring Hills Mt. Vernon is the only assisted living or memory care community in Fairfax County, Virginia to be named Caring Stars this year, is among only five in the state and 390 across the country.

Spring Hills Mt. Vernon prides themselves on the relationships they work to build with the residents and their families. “We strive daily to deliver high-quality care for our residents. We also work just as hard to ensure that there is open communication with their families. This award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Thomas Clarke, Executive Director at Spring Hills Mt. Vernon. “On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to Caring.com for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2017.”

Alexander Markowits, President/CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities, is happy to see Spring Hills Mt. Vernon receive this award. “Throughout our company, we stress the importance of having excellent communication with residents and families. This recognition is an endorsement of our outstanding staff and how they accomplish this goal. I’m very proud of everyone at Spring Hills Mt. Vernon.”

Americans are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple Caring.com research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and have relied on these perspectives more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its sixth year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers reliably narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the most-acclaimed communities – particularly as they gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs.

“Congratulations to Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living for achieving this award after earning accolades from residents and their loved ones on Caring.com,” said Karen Cassel, Caring.com CEO. “This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference Spring Hills Mt. Vernon is making in serving older adults, and we join with the local community in celebrating their accomplishment.

Some of the positive feedback that led to Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living being a Caring Star of 2017 includes:

  • “Spring Hills [Mt. Vernon] is clean, the workers are outstanding, and not only loving and caring for my wife, but they’re also concerned with my emotional state of mind. They’re magnificent…”
  • “…the transition was made pleasant by the wonderful staff at Spring Hill Mount Vernon. The staff was amazingly transparent with the whole process and provided us with plenty of information… I have never been in such a facility that felt so homey and clean… I felt extremely comfortable leaving my mother in the care of this place and would recommend it to others without a doubt.”
  • “… We even got to eat there during lunch time and it was amazing to see that the food quality was superior to even what I make at home myself. The place was clean, brightly lit and seemed to have gone through new renovations. Keep up the good work!”
