Why Erickson Living

Our professional planners work with members of the community to design a campus that will bring much-needed services while minimizing the effect on the area’s traffic, aesthetics, environment, character, and culture.

Erickson Living campuses are uniquely self-sufficient, and provide their own security. They also manage their own road repair, snow removal, and other services typically funded by the local government.

In the Washington, D.C. area, our communities have been supported and recognized by Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Montgomery County officials not only for providing exceptional senior care and services, but also for engaging in community activism and philanthropic activity.

We take great pride in learning from our residents.  After a campus opens, all Erickson Living communities have a resident member on the Board of Directors and an elected Resident Council that works side-by-side with community leadership to ensure we’re not only meeting and exceeding the expectations of our residents and staff, but also that of our local community.
